Censorship and Crossfit HQ

I've been a "part" of the crossfit community for over 3 years now. I'm very disapointed in HQ for recently removing a post I put on the Crossfit Regional site. My comment in no way directly singled out an athlete or made a derogatory remark towards crossfit hq. My comment was something to the effect of "Athletes who cannot complete a wod should not represent in the games." I see on the site right now there are remarks directed at athletes which still exist in the comment sections. I don't think I did an injustice by posting, in fact I think alot of people would agree with my statement.

This will likely not go well for you.

I think that your comment is redundant. If you see the rules for form for the workout, there are various rules that eliminate athletes from competition for being unable to complete a form (and thus, a workout).

We don't know who you were talking about or what your comment was, since you even paraphrased it. So it'll be hard to "take your side."

Not really sure what you are talking about but this seems to sum it up nicely. It is probably best for you to voice your concern on the other site.
