    I was recently banned from ModelMayhem and when i inquired why a moderator responded saying "cause you have a learning disability and asperger's syndrome" which i wrote in my profile. my question is what can i do since this is discrimination?

    I know that the servers resides in California so aren't they bound by ADA?

    I would attempt to contact the corporate level and provide them copies of your correspondence with the moderator. The information you have provided, by itself, is very disturbing. I have a feeling there may be more to the story, but referring to a person's health condition as a reason to ban them is beyond inappropriate.

    Since your health conditions are not pertinent to modeling nor photography, I would advise you to leave it out of your profile. Not because you should be ashamed, you shouldn't, but because it's simply none of their business.

    I attempted to do a WHOIS search on them but whoever is running the site is a coward who is hiding hiding behind Domains by Proxy.

    Other than the moderators there is no one else. They wont reply to any of my messages anymore, if I make a second message they close it saying to keep everything in that original message which they just ignore.

    I put that information up as Asperger's does affect how I talk, that i don't look into the eyes I am very quite or might say something strange but i have never wished or done harm to anyone.

    I wonder if they thought you put that up there just to be silly and they weren't taking your condition seriously. That is extremely rude and I hope you can find out who the moderator is and get to the bottom of that

    On one thread you stated that your account was deleted for one reason and here you state a different reason. Please reconcile your statements.

    No, you stated about your MM account:
    Am I reading that wrong?
