Censorship on the eBay Forums?
« on: August 14, 2013, 01:44:46 PM »
As of this afternoon East Coast time, the eBay Forums (now powered by Lithium instead of LiveWorld) have been "Closed for Maintenance," with no mention of for how long other than "Please try again later." Meanwhile, eCommerceBytes has heard from some users who are unhappy campers not only about the forums being closed in the middle of a business day with no advance warning, but about words being bleeped out.

It's possible the forums had some unforeseen technical issue and had to be closed while being fixed, but if that was the case, wouldn't it have been better to say so and given an estimated return date, even if it was no more than to say something like "we don't know when that will be, but will post information as soon as we can"?

Those situations happens in different websites, and do not give any kind of response, because they are based on reports that many are not effective...

Estos tipos de incidentes se presentan muy a menudo, y como comentaba las paginas se basan en un reporte que muchas veces tarda hasta para ellos mismos

En estos foros muchas veces se pasan con comentarios fuera de lugar... tomenla con calma digo yo, y si lo ue se comentaba anterirmente es q esos incidentes pasan a menudo.

Si pero la censura considero que tambien debe ser moderada y no utilizada como metodo de regular lo que les favorece algunos...

Creo que no hay censura en esos foros, hasta donde yo sepa , porque manejan unos sistemas muy rigorosos automatizados que identifican cualquier materiar nosivo

En todos lados hay censura, pero creo que hoy en dia no se escandalizan muchas cosas como antes
