Sportskeeda has a zero-tolerance policy against certain issues and we immediately ban accounts that violate them. Some of the most common reasons for banning profiles can be found below:
1) Plagiarism: This is a very serious offence and we do not take lightly to copied content. We consider plagiarism as the lowest forms of theft and a robbery of intellect. Whether it is one sentence or one paragraph, once you are caught copying content, it means that we cannot trust you. In some cases, it may warrant legal proceedings against the writer too.
2) Driving bot traffic: There have been cases where readers have sent in illegal bot traffic in an attempt to improve their earnings. Understand that our tech team is a lot smarter than you and we have systems in place to detect bot traffic within minutes. This offence also warrants legal proceedings and accounts get banned immediately.
3) Repeatedly submitting rejected articles: When our editors reject an article, it means that the content is not good enough to be published on the platform. Re-submitting the same article again amounts to spamming and your account can be banned for the same.
4) Spamming or showing disrespect in the comments section: Leaving unsolicited spam comments or displaying abusive behaviour in the comments section can also result in a permanent ban from the platform.
