So PED accusations and insults are bannable but joking about suicides isn't?

    Really? Making blatant jokes about a fighter committing suicide is free-go, but if you accuse a fighter of taking PEDs it falls under fighter bashing and the ban hammer is loose?

    Note, I am not talking about making comments on Ronda's suicide comment, that's fair since it's a topic in the media. I am talking about the blatant jokes that people are making like "I hope she does" or "Good, she should" etc. You're joking about someone ending their life, someone who none of you even personally know and hasn't really affected you in any reasonable way.

    freedom of speech. Not the same as failing a drug test, which is a breach of contract.

    I actually agree with TS.

    Saying "I hope she does" or something should at least be an infraction.

    Legitimate inquiry, however, group think when it comes to Ronda hate is powerful so I wouldn't be surprised if it gets swept under the rug.

    Because I posted media content about McGregor on a UFC section. Irrelevant.

    I would hate to lose Ronda. She is a once ever in human history athlete and a solid 10. It would be a shame to lose a woman so early who drops world champion boxers with body shots and beat up 10 Samoan gang members with weapons in a movie theater.

    PED accusations aren't bannable. Plenty of Brazilians have been accused on here. Cant say I know what would happen if you accused an Amurrrican tho.

    Thank you I was not able to post but what a god damn joke it is you get 2 thumbs up and well that won't come up like it use to but anyway good topic
     
  13. She shouldnt have said that during her staged plea for sympathy. It was too far. I dont think anyone watched that and thought, 'oh no! She sounds serious about suicide!' So maybe thats why it isnt being taken seriously.

    It should only be an infraction if it's not funny. Saying something like i hope she does holds zero value. But maybe doing something like posting a picture of an urn and saying "Sick burn" is kinda funny and should be allowed.

    Honestly neither should be forbidden. Free speech is more important than people's sensibilities.

    "About a fighter comitting suicide" ?

    I assure you this,Ronda Rousey didn't committed suicide(obviously) and she never thought about comitting suicide.

    Can it be more obvious? Do you guys really buy that story told on Ellen to get some attention?

    You are supposed to feel sorry for her now,thats the whole strategy. Thats the WHOLE purpose.

    This makes absolutely no sense. Freedom of speech has nothing to do with with drug test fails or breach of contract lol.

    Rules are rules, but TS has a point. Joking about suicide is ok, but accusing fighters of peds (way less offensive imo) is not?

    Did she kill herself? What's so wrong about saying Ronda should go meet her father in hell if that's what she wants? Honestly, I think it's just nobody is taking the suicide threat seriously.

    oh no, someone getting their bloomers in a bunch means freedom of speech is out the window

    "your freedom of speech ends where my feelings begin"
