It seems to me that the title and description of this forum is seriously in error. When I say forum I mean Eastern Thought not the Hinduisn subforum. Not only does the title of the forum leave out religion altogether but its description "Buddhism, Confucianism, Tao and others" doesn't even mention Hinduism. Nearly eight hundred million Hindus in the world and we're not recognized by name or as a religion. I have to wonder why the creators the Comparative-Religion website chose this peculiar way to design their forum. Looking at other peculiar aspects of the forum it seems that it might be the case that this direspect was afforded to Hindus in order to placate Muslims. Take for example the fact that the Baha'i Faith isn't listed as an Abrahamic religion. This is unsual as the Baha'i Faith is well known and well documented as an Abrahamic tradition. Muslims are however offended by the mear existence of Baha'is because they recognize a prophet after Muhammud. Considering that the moderators have recently claimed to be taking a more hands off approach and lowering the walls of gardens it is telling that they more recently removed a post from the Abrahamic Religions forum that mearly stated that the Baha' Faith is an Abrahamic tradition. I think that as Hindus (and in my case a person of Hindu heritage) we should be offended by this slighting. And if by chase it was done in the interest of appeasing Muslims the I believe the offense is double.
