WTF is going on at Letsmakerobots.com  Some users (me too) been banned when trying to delete their content. F*ck you RobotShop
 
LetsMakeRobots's new management is denying members the ability to remove their own content from the site.

www.LetsMakeRobots.com  is not the same place it was a week ago.
It is under new management (Robot Shop) and many long-time, frequently contributing members were blocked without a valid reason. This treatment has caused a significant number (me included) to decide to leave that community for good.

I was blocked solely because I deleted my own project/content. This didn't just happen to me - any members who deleted their own content, or even just started deleting their own content, were likewise blocked. (I was offered chances to be unblocked, but I declined as I felt I was treated unfairly and did not want to return for more.)

LetsMakeRobots did not want people to remove their content, and they are trying to prevent that by locking people out.

They are denying content creators access to edit/delete their own content, while keeping it visible (front page in some cases) on the website to generic traffic.

Are they asserting ownership claim over user's content? Their actions suggest that they believe they have this right, but they have not been open about this. I can only guess that they do not want their true position known as it's one that may create a backlash and cause even more members to want to leave. (Members value the content they've worked hard on to produce.)

They are covering up their actions and treatment of users. When a remaining member asked if the rumours about the blockings were true, they deleted the post. When a remaining member mentioned the IRC that the blocked members went to console each other, that remaining member was blocked. If you look on the LetsMakeRobots webpage, it is all smiles and business as usual, but in fact they are blocking long-time members left, right and centre. They are covering up what they are doing.

Why am I posting this? When someone covers up what they're doing, and prevents people from talking about it, it signals to me that they may be doing something wrong. So, I want the situation to be out in the open so that anyone affected can decide how they should respond.

If any of the above is incorrect, I'm happy to be corrected. However, I have done my utmost to stick to non-subjective facts.

Why do I care about this? LetsMakeRobots has been an important part of my life. The community was always there for me and helped me become a robot maker. I want to make sure remaining members know what's happening, and can decide for themselves if they are OK with it.
