Question Why is the name of another site banned?

Hope I don't get in trouble for this. This is a genuine question.

I do not use the king-snake website for the following reasons:

-Their webserver is too slow
-Their layout is pure crap, can't find a thing
-Their forums are micro-managed and way over-moderated

So I'm no fan of the site. However I am aghast as to why the name is blocked from appearing here, and why links to the king-snake site are forced broken?

Hope I'm not stepping on any toes here, I'm genuinely curious as to why the name is forbidden.

kingsnake blocks every other herp related link, probably out of fear of losing business to other sites (they charge for classifieds). it's only fair that every other herp related site blocks kingsnake. none of the other herp related sites are blocked.

I seriously hate KS. They banned me for no reason. I left them and came here. I like it much better here!

I am not a fan of the kingsnake site. There are more canadians here in ssnakess.com. In kingsnake site there are hardly any canadians at all.

This site is based in Canada, and most people are Canadian. Although that doesn't mean all!

I had no idea they blocked other links too. How childish. Thanks for all the replies. Although I am American I associate with herpers around the world and am glad to have found this site. I hope nobody REALLY cares about anyone else's nationality here. :P

I highly doubt that fr0glet...although it does help to find Canadian sites for us Canadians, as its harder to find suppliers/breeders and such here.

But as for nationality, it doesn't matter one bit from my stand point! I think he was just asking because he didn't know.

I don't see why any other site should stoop to their level

Kingsnake sucks, I was there for a year then I found this place. I'll never go back. And yes, way more Canadian stuff here. Love this place. We shouldn't need to block other sites because we kick a** here. sSnakeSs rules!!!
