Response to We found out the real reason why the forum got taken down

If your forum did not breach the terms of use, it would not have been closed. End of story. Network54 doesn't just randomly close forums for un-substantiated complaints. There must be proof, or the forum would still be there. The forum owners either allowed terms of use violations (and it's not only child porn that will get you shut down, a forum about the Mafia would almost certainly include posts that would breach the terms of use, simply for the subject matter at hand) or did not remove offending posts in a timely manner. Read the terms of use before spouting false accusations.

Here, in case you're too lazy to click. I see at least 2 in the list where a Mafia based forum would fail immediately, without a single post.

8. PROHIBITED CONTENT.
It is Network54's function to operate as an Internet Service Provider, facilitating the free exchange of ideas, opinions, and information. However, Network54 prohibits content or links to content or Network54 Resources that contain(s):
