"Accounts closed"

2 Replies

So im more of a lurker than anything around BP but I could help to notice some of these accounts closed people... Some of them were hot and heavy in here, getting into debates some bragging etc then all of a sudden accounts closed. Just an observation, wonder if most of them were just full of bs/fishing or what.

@Rob Z.

Accounts are generally closed for violation of our terms of use.  While we are a forgiving community, the thing I see that most often results in people getting their accounts shut down is either blatant disregard of our no solicitation policy, or a disregard for the spirit of our community over the long haul.  

Bragging, self-congratulatory posts, and snide comments that hint at how much better off others will be after someone's "course" tend to be the most common examples of this "breach of spirit" of our community.  If you've violated our terms, AND have this type of outlook, that's a no brainer decision for me in terms of shutting down an account.

Everyone makes mistakes, but folks that ignore the values here at BiggerPockets and focus on promoting themselves tend not to last long..

@Rob Z. , many of the "accounts closed" have had problems adhering to site policies and things of that nature. BP isn't much on censorship, per se, but is pretty strict on its terms and conditions.
