    TFN bans people for having contrary opinions to what mods there have. Examples:
    -if you don't think Rey is a Skywalker, you are out
    -if you ship other than Finn/Rey you are shunned (if it's Stormpilot cuz it iz not PC to ban POC), if it's reylo or chewnata or ruke you are banned
    -if you argue diversity and fair representation in all aspects of sw for all races not just partial ones for pocs you are called a racist and banned
    -if you say han and leia is not contributing to rape culture you get modded and banned later.

    Now...from this thread alone it is visible that there are many other (unfounded) reasons for banning people. All that's comming down at that place's is modpowertripping and godwanabeeism

    Forums are about different people discussing and exchanging different opinions and getting to know different pov about sw topics. Learning new stuff new perspectives and growing.
    TFN is not that kind of forum. At least not the new movies discussion subforum.
    "Laying low and cowering, not exploring your thoughts and ideas trough argumented discussion" is not what a forum shoud be. It should be a friendly place full if great people strong enough to accept that there are other people equally great that might have different opinions and views on the Force and Charachters of SW universe. That should be a message that should be spread for young people there and baby forumers who are taking their first steps into cyberspace. IMO. ALL that Cantina IS! So don't say it's immposible.
    I agree with no insults and starring out foul language :)

    If I remember correctly didn't a whole group of people get exiled from TFN because of the Mace vs Papaltine debate?

    I'm pretty sure if you said that Mace beat Palpatine in the Lightsaber fight (which implied he was stronger with the force), you were banned.

    The Mods and many members in that thread all were convinced that Palpatine threw the fight, and would not tolerate a dissenting opinion.

    This led to a group of ex-TFN'ers to start the OuterRimSieges.com SW message board after Episode 3.

    I was mostly on the PT/CT boards and never noticed this dark underbelly there - the whole "contributing to rape culture" part isn't that shocking because lots of people on lots of forums are triggerhappy when it comes to controversial political issues such as this one; but banning people over Rey theories? That's quite something, isn't it.

    You guys ever been to the TV board over there? It's a pure nightmare.

    I was modded several times and was even banned once for making criticisms about certain aspects of the newer SW shows.

    The way that site is run, I am baffled that they have been able to stay in business for so long. I see guys that have been there since the early 90's!

    A wise decision on your part. In doing so, you avoided trolls like that guy with the Han avatar, who constantly belittles people for having a different opinion with the mods doing absolutely nothing about his behavior.

    Yeah,something to do with their view that critique of a show is "creator bashing"

    Go figure. . . .

    Indeed. By their logic, complaining about getting cold steak at restaurant would be bad because the chef's feelings would be hurt. Also, the "creators" will never see the comments made about them. And even if they did, tough.

    It's almost like they're paid to protect the creators "honor."

    I wasn't banned, but I did leave after getting moderated.

    It's kind of ironic that I once thought of TFN as the alernative to the over-moderated official StarWars.com forums.

    I was on that board several years ago. I wasn't what I'd call a regular but I was ganged upon by mods for having an opinion opposite of them.

    It is very unorganized and immature over there. I haven't been back and never will.

    That was my case when I tried talking politics with them. It got really bad since I had different opinions than them and was called the worst sort of names. A friend & I tried to point that out to them but they would ignore it or at best try to justify their immature responses and handling of the conversation. After that, I never discussed politics with them again

    I never got banned from TFN but I hated that place after awhile. Stopped going, and I was there from the beginning, when the internet first started. I remember I was in the library wondering is there a Star Wars website for fans and I typed Star Wars and TFN popped up first on the search engine. I remember seeing Tauntauns and snow speeders, thinking I finally found a home. I never went all out cuz I noticed people got banned quick. LOL Wait a minute I"m getting old! I did get banned from there I remember I got banned for a couple of days and I changed my username to get back on LOL the memories LOL that place was a crazy hive of villainy.

    Long live The Cantina.

    This website is amazing.. it tolerates good humour and has good debates. Plus it's the most aesthetically pleasing SW Forum out there. It feels like home. :)
