Interesting bug or, as the kids would put it, “interesting feature”…
So, it turns out that if you try to follow a group called Palestine Action US on Twitter, the system automatically makes you unfollow them. Far as i know these guys aren’t terrorists, so this does seem like unjustified and covert censorship. Look at the sidebars in the following screenshots. First was taken right after i followed both this Lara person and the aforementioned account. Second is from just a few seconds later after i refreshed the page. Lara is still followed, but Palestine Action US is not! Man, Twitter aren’t even trying to hide their bias anymore!
…where you can’t call mass-murdering scumbags mass-murdering scumbags…
Funny how they call it “violent speech.” Looks like there are still a lot of SJWs in power at Twitter. Sure, it’s an insult, but to call it violent is bullshit and they know it. I guess it’s “abusive,” but by internet standards it’s pretty tame. Anyway, if i can’t call a turd a turd on Twitter there’s no point in paying for it. Hell, i can call a turd a turd on Gab for free! And since i appealed it, it will be more like a one week suspension since that’s how they discourage appeals, by locking your account until the appeal is dealt with and making sure the process takes at least a few days! Probability – i will lose the appeal and have to take the tweet down. Certainty – i will stop paying for Twitter. Sure, it gets my cartoons exposure they would otherwise not get, but it’s done nothing for my follower count and it’s not like anyone’s paying me for the toons so it’s a waste of money AND it’s supporting a crypto-fascist, covertly SJW, fake free speech platform.
The appeal was settled in less than an hour. I guess that’s an improvement, but of course they found against me. Good that it was so quick, though, as it allows me to quit paying all the sooner…
Addendum Number 2.
I deleted the tweet so i could cancel the subscription, but turns out i can’t…
Ain’t Big Tech grand, folks?
From this preview (document went blank within minutes of my reading it so may not be there at all pretty soon) of their upcoming changes to the rules, it seems that if you use Paypal in connection with the spreading of views they don’t like they may steal thousands of dollars from you…
“Violation of this Acceptable Use Policy constitutes a violation of the PayPal User Agreement and may subject you to damages, including liquidated damages of $ 2,500.00 U.S. dollars per violation, which may be debited directly from your PayPal account(s)”
And this is the relevant, upcoming change to how their precious service may or may not be used. Note the “sole discretion” bit. Seems to imply that not only is YOUR opinion not relevant, but so is the courts’!
“5. involve the sending, posting, or publication of any messages, content, or materials that, in PayPal’s sole discretion…?(e) depict,?promote, or incite hatred or discrimination of protected groups or of individuals or groups based on protected characteristics (e.g. race, religion, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.)”
The Woke Fascism just gets worse and worse. Personally, even though i don’t use my Paypal for anything political, i am going to close my account as soon as i switch some payment methods over to credit card. Disgusting stuff.
That means “banned” by the way. Orwellian, huh?
So, looks like i’ve been permanently suspended from Reddit for a post that i had already deleted! Not even i can see the post now, but it was for r/unpopular opinion and it said, almost verbatim, that the American Establishment vilifies Whites because they are the ones most likely to rise up against said Establishment. It also said that Blacks have been taught to hate themselves, which is why they destroy their own neighborhoods rather than target the powerful, and that now it’s Whitey’s turn to be taught to hate himself. I assume it was saying that Blacks have been taught to hate themselves that did it as it implies that most American Blacks hate themselves, which is portraying a protected category in a negative light. Either that or the implication that rising up against the Establishment is a good thing. That wouldn’t surprise me since Reddit is part of the Establishment. This is the internet now, outside of the Right Wing outlets you can’t say shit, even if it’s something that has been a standard liberal opinion for decades. But frankly, this isn’t much of a loss as Reddit has become so restrictive that you find yourself not posting innocuous comments because you know some psycho admin is likely to deliberately misinterpret it so they can chuck you out — as happened today!
So, i decided this isn’t even worth appealing since even IF the appeal works — as it amazingly did last time — Reddit just isn’t worth the hassle anymore. So i sent them this nicely worded “fuck you” instead. Seriously, these guys are working for the Plutocracy by furthering the vile agenda of the IdPol crowd and they should all be locked up for being class traitors.
After that i deleted my entire account.
EDIT: Found the entire post on DuckDuckGo. Not Google, of course. Odd, isn’t it? But anyway, now you don’t have to take my word for it that i didn’t say anything that a reasonable person would object to.
Yes, it had to happen and it did. Yesterday my main account at Reddit was “permanently suspended,” which is 1984-speak for “banned.” And what horrible, horrible thing did i do? Why, i did something that the SJWs dominating Reddit do on a daily basis — i called a bunch of people fascists!
A day or two before i had been banned from WhitePeopleTwitter for — get this — participating in subs like Louder with Crowder, so i responded to said ban with “you are fascists.” The next day i get a message saying i’ve been banned from the entire site for, you know, that thing i said. This is Reddit now. It is literally worse than Twitter. At least over there you have to say something that can be conveniently misinterpreted, but at Reddit all you have to do is express a negative opinion of some mods and that’s it, you are gone. So what now? Obviously there’s no point to opening another account as myself, but i will probably find some way of using it for promotion purposes.
So there you have it, you now have to be ridiculously careful on Reddit. You literally can’t say anything negative about the mods, or any of the protected groups, which makes it pretty much useless for anyone except those looking to use Identity Politics to distract from class. Or those wishing to discuss pointless shit like celebs, because that too serves as great distraction from the big issues.
Screenshots below. First one is the notice of suspension/ban, second is the “reported content” they linked to.
