I very much doubt that was the reason. Following on twitter, ACF agreed with the ban. The guy was starting fights with just about everyone. But anyway, I don't think thats an argument for here. I only stopped by to put another side of the story after ACF criticized their members and called them children.

Every forum is going to have its complaints.. what is important is that the mods then take those complaints on board and act on them in order to ensure that the forum grows and becomes a better place for all posters to enjoy and gain from.

i was banned from cn forum because other members did not like me and my

posts calling me out for being a 'sockpuppet'

i still like the forum and have no beef with moderators

remember it's a forum for everyone..............too many members shout 'troll'

just because a member has alternative views

Sure but not nearly as much discussion as in other threads, much of it is just pictures of Contador. And talking about how great he is.

If you look at the number of discussion posts it's just as much as in other discussion threads there is just also a lot of other stuff in there.

I count there has been 32 posts of no meaningful discussion since the last discussion took place (5 posts of discussion by the way)
And in the last 10 pages, 62 posts have not involved any real discussion about Contador. At 10 posts a page that is 62 posts out of 100 that have not contained any meaningful discussion. And these numbers would be even higher if we looked back towards after the Vuelta ended.

But I digress, the main point of my original post was that the Contador thread is the closest we have to a fanboy/fangirl thread where there are overall more fan posts and less discussion posts. And you can't deny that more picture, tweets, and videos get posted in it than any other discussion thread.

Let's not discuss what goes on in other forums, please.
