The final nail in the coffin was calling another user "a little bitch". Well commenting that to another user in the context of a post regarding the origins of SARS-CoV-2. It was probably a combination of both, as the hive mind of reddit can't stand anything counter to the narrative mainstream media has fed them.
As someone who is center or right of center, I was constantly harassed and attacked on the platform for my viewpoints. No action was taken by moderators or admins. It was fine as it's the internet and people talk shit. But it is insane that something as small as calling someone "a little bitch" was enough to earn a permaban from reddit for my account. Other accounts get away with waaaay worse.
I made a different account and had posted nothing. I contacted another user in a private message and did not reveal my previous username, it was just letting them know where I went. I again was banned. This is ridiculous that they would go to such lengths to keep me silenced while allowing the behavior on their platform that I have seen over the years. Not to mention the number of troll, alt and bot accounts that are rampant. I am making yet another account and taking action to actively circumvent their measures to keep me off the platform.
