    ...and this is just the tip of the iceberg. I am not going to waste my time copy/pasting every one of these.

    I don't know, simply discussing suspect events that took place seems like fair game. Outright claiming that someone did steroids with the sole purpose of bashing, is something else entirely.

    Report the posts instead of making a thread.

    I think they've relaxed the rules with all the failed tests recently.

    All but the last post you quoted are NOT accusations of steroids. They are accusations that Aldo and his camp ducked the random element of his drug test. Leaving aside for the moment the question of whether that's accurate (which is an entirely legit debate) what forum rule does it violate?

    it's a controversial subject with a whiff of potential truth in it. ofc people are going to speak their mind.

    if it's out of the blue, like "ronda only beath bethe cause she roided", yeah, that would be worse since there is no suspicion of it there and it is made only to slander.

    Agreed. Discussion on the circumstances of this specific event is pretty interesting.

    I think 'unsubstantiated' is the meaningful part you glossed over.

    People are commenting on - and reacting to - a news story that broke over a series of complications with Aldo being tested. Within reason I think forming an opinion based on the facts available should be fair game.

    Making a thread or post apropos of nothing and calling someone a cheat is a pretty far cry from the examples you provided.

    For the record, I don't think Aldo did anything wrong, and I personally don't think he's a cheat based on what was reported. People love a conspiracy theory, but I think all the events are pretty logical taken in context.

    Wow, dude, you're a straight up rat. That's probably the worst personality trait a human being can have. I thought despising rats was universal--or is it cool to rat in Denmark? Dat communism...

    No fighters in the UFC do PEDs and it's not a problem also the women's divisions are great and full of talent.
