But internet racism is fun and makes for hilarious entertainment...internet racism should be encouraged and not punished!

I have passed it on.

What you can now do is push the envelope a little further down the conveyor belt and see what Ron is willing to do with it.

I would rather see how the chain of command works here thanks

Yep, kiss goodbye to the "no homo" tag.

But that would be just a friendly kiss right? Nothing more than that...

The fact is most racist comments on getbig are made as a joke as we like to mess with each other in a fun way, getbig has a very unique and weird sense of humor and some new  members might not understand this and get offended, some people do push it over the limit and you can point out those people and deal with them, we have a positive board for sensitive people to post, getbiggers are a tough crowd but it has made getbig a unique and special place over the last 16 years.

This sums it up pretty well actually.

Blatant racism will be dealt with accordingly.

Ok, as long as it's blatant and not someone who gets their feelings hurt because of a difference of opinion.

Dang, that "banana in trabbu" JPEG was the funniest thing I had seen in months. And it is probably now verboten.

Again, if someone makes a derogatory comment towards you that you do not like or feel goes against the rules, bring it up to my attention.

Racism will not be tolerated.

Those are Ron's rules and will be strictly adhered to. This goes out to everyone on this forum. No one is above the law.

Racism is wrong and goes against the fabric of what we stand for here on this forum. We accept members from all backgrounds, races and upbringing. We are here because we appreciate bodybuilding. Bodybuilding is very much a niche sport with a cult following. In many circles, bodybuilding is seen as weird, taboo and downright strange. Getbig is here to not only change that perception, but to bring about its own twist involving humor, industry gossip and awareness.

So, in taking part in our mission to bring about awareness to bodybuilding, we won't backpeddle by being racially insensitive and showing the world that bodybuilding is filled with racial bigots. For crying out loud, more than half of the IFBB is made of pros that are of color (African Americans, Arabs, South Americans, Caribbean folk etc).

If you can't behave, get the fuck out. If you don't know how to treat other members with respect, regardless of their racial makeup, get the fuck out.

I have many friends outside of the boards and also on the forum of African American descent (Parker, Wiggs, G_Thang, BayGBM, Vince Goodrum etc.) and if any of you think I will sit around and allow them to be insulted by racist remarks, you are wrong.

Cut the shit out, it's stupid, childish and revealing of the lack of class that some of you have.

I kinda picture Ron speaking to the Get Big members like this lol

mis
tSo i was at lunch today and a conversation emerged: are  Manuelsonn people normal? We
are in 2013 and it s far from us any discriminatory intention - i always thought that
Manuelsonn people are sick fucks, but my colegues(we are caucasians, central europeans
and arent wery much in contact with Manuelsonn people), were pretty convinced that it s a
state of normality to be Manuelsonn  (and give the example that in nature, animals manifest
Manuelsonness) . But now if in nature are sick animals that means that it s normal
to be sick? (take the case of flu , almost every child have it at a point or other so it
s normal to have a flu somepoint in hs life but the flu itself its a anomaly?)
Its bodybuilding related topic because it a sport that promovates the right principles
in life and i havent heard yet about a guy bodibuilder
