Welcome kama to this forum, a place where you can find a lot of muscle stuff, very friendly and helpful community  Wink

I think a lot of members on this forum were addicted to `saradas`, but the rules there are somehow crazy  Huh?

(Cleaning the forum access to the VIP - area, posting very good stuff always moved to the VIP area without access by the owner, collecting karma points deleted when you nearly arrive the VIP limit)

Never mind it was the best forum on the web (till they kick asses as they want to do, and ask the members to donate).

I found this forum and now Im addicted again  Azn

saradas.org

So in my opinion this site is basically a scam.... For anyone who isn't familiar with its history:

I found it maybe about a year or two ago, and I remember I liked it a lot, with so many contributing members. It was probably the biggest female-muscle related forum I'd seen...

I was happy enough with it that I donated for VIP access, which I promptly received (the minimum donation was $15, though...). I happily browsed the VIP section for about a month, maybe a bit less.

Then, surprise... all of a sudden my VIP access was turned off, and I found out that I had to "donate" over and over to get it back. So, I said, "screw that," and I was content with my regular membership.

Then, several months ago, they started trying to cram the "option" to donate down our throats, randomly removing forum access unless you were a "donating" VIP member. It got worse from there--now for a while they've been at the point where they send scam emails once a week, about how all the members have received "trial" VIP memberships... which turns out to be a lie upon visiting the site.

The admin posts fake links all over the place that end up leading to a screen that tries to get you to "donate"... Any discussion about this is removed... some moderators have fake names (I remember "seiple" as one) to make it seem like those women post there... it's despicable.

AVOID! AVOID!
I'd suggest someone pay $15 for the access, go into their "Donation" area, and take screencaps.

Then find the legal page of any paysite you found stuff from and send them the screens with a short summary of what was happening (Users have to "donate" monthly to keep access.)

What he is doing is highly illegal, and he can get into deep trouble for putting "Donate" instead of "Membership".

How is it that they can continue to operate if 90% is illegal reposting? Isn't there some kind of recourse that the other sites (or whoever) can implement? Huh?
Sorry to double post but I have a theory:

I have an account there (I don't pay for jack squat), and I noticed that occasionally, there will be something in the free section, and other times it goes to the "Members" section.

My guess? As soon as he gets caught, he slaps it in the members section. So it can't be seen anymore.

Has anyone been on saradas lately and noticed all the advertising they are doing for supposed steroid suppliers? I'm sure those "suppliers" are just another way to extort money from people dumb enough to try and mail order steroids from some "company" advertising on a public forum. I guess the saradas owners think no one would report them to the authorities since they were attempting to buy something illegal in the first place.

Yep. Post after post about it.

The "best" part of the site I just notice: He bans people for inactivity. This isn't too bad (though it serves no purpose. An inactive account takes up just as much space as an active one, but he doesn't want people who aren't funneling him new stuff).

The ingenious part? It's a 15 day ban.
He bans people for not posting for 2 weeks.
You can probably see what happens next.

Saradas is something else . . . It's a user's site, all take and no give. It's up to you how to interpret such a site.

I was banned as a user of saradas.  I had somewhere between 10-15 pages of material posted.  I NEVER had access to VIP and I never asked for it.  One day I tried to log on (as a regular user) and found out I had been banned. 

The admins are unprofessional. 

However, at the end of the day that is saradas and you can take it or leave it.

Beat them at their own game and "re-join" under a different username, p/w, etc. They're too big for their own britches Grin

They use the donation ruse to beat the tax man and avoid paying tax on income.  If you really wanted to be a thorn in their side, find out who and where saradas is and prepare a presentation for his national income tax office. 

As for the DCMA/Lawsuit/snitch to the webmaster route don't bother.  All photos are hosted by Imagebam and PLEASE USE A DIFFERENT IMAGE HOST! and like places located in Costa Rica or Tanzania or some god forsaken 3rd world hell hole that has no law to speak of or the will to enforce it.

I say if you can't put up with Saradas' endless runaround crap, don't go there. That's about all you can do.

I'd usually stay away from any site that says "Please Register For Complete Forum Access - There are hundreds of extra features available to users who register, and it only takes 30 seconds or less! "

If people really and I mean really want that site removed, why don't they first make a whois inquiry on who.godaddy.com and then google "copyright infringment" and find out how to contact the appropriate authorities?

...No, not blackmail the owner for lifelong membership   Evil

Trust me they already know....What Saradas does is make athlete's and producers pack it all in and call it a day...then no more free content-in fact no content at all....
