Can I sue a website for discrimination? I joined a Photography website so I posted some Camera equipment in there classified.

Asked 9 months ago - San Diego, CA

All of a sudden I was attacked by members like wild dogs calling me a scammer. So after all the abuse they put a lock on my ad.

So recently I posted my Camera equipment again and the abuse started again calling me a scammer and pathetic. I've never experience anything like that. I did complain the first time to a supporter and he just said they did that because they didn't know you.

They need to be taught a lesson so if I could sue them I will! Otherwise this will continue on. So the 2nd ad that I put up they took it down it vanished! I do have some emails from them I really want to go after them.
