Default Mod bias and censorship of ideas

Just got back from my month long ban. BTW it was an instant ban (not preceded by any warning or infraction points). Allegedly it was for “Innappropriate language” with the more specific reason being “trolling in an RIP thread.”

BTW - the posts were apparently so heinous that they weren’t even deleted or edited.

It’s pretty clear I was banned because the mods just like silencing opinions they don’t agree with from posters they don’t like. And they just label everything in that category as “trolling.”

I think the mods should have to disclose which social groups they belong to and the posters they hang out with just so that everyone else knows who is part of the protected class.

Can the mods also share the scary opinions and topics they don’t like?

Thanks!

Did you have other points accumulated? I'd be surprised if "trolling in an RIP thread" was more than 1 point for you.

Nope - no unexpired infraction points and none active. Last one I had was from 2015.

Just checked the PM and they gave me 1 infraction point but somehow that resulted in a ban because of magical mod logic.

And if the posts were so bad why do they continue to exist in an unaltered form?

This was a mod hit job, plain and simple.

I’d like to sign the petition to recall Mod1 based on this egregious miscarriage of justice.

Thanks

Your entire shtick is to act like a jerk and try to rile people up, i.e. trolling. The mods have adopted a subjective "know it when you see it" approach to moderating of "don't be a jerk". I would suggest either changing your entire style (while also taking some personal time for self-reflection to try and figure out what is wrong in your life that you feel a desire to go act like a jerk and try to make people mad on the internet) or deleting your account.
