It's a funny thing...as early as a year ago (or less), I've had people send me death and rape threats, stalk me on reddit for years, and it took asking moderators to help for a year before they suspended this person. Now, it seems people are banned basically b/c they trip a wire with psychotically toxic moderators.
Meanwhile you can be banned from a subreddit for whatever psychotic rule a mod haphazardly decides to apply b/c they dislike you or your detected political leanings, even if you have high karma and generally contribute substantive discussion to reddit, and then be banned from the site thereafter if you try to circumvent. No forgiveness, no nothing.
Reddit moderators are also a sociopathic bunch who favor certain sadistic resident trolls that instigate fights solely to get people banned, or else, they pick those fights themselves. One moderator went back through my profile - 11 months' worth to point out I contracted myself on a surgery recommendation to someone and insulted me based off of personal shit I'd talked about in the sub when advising others. Then he banned me.
I noticed something-stupidly, I logged in from my "suspended" account to my dummy (used to upvote, maybe message). When I went to deactivate, I could see it logged me in as the "supended" account.
How the fuck did that happen? (Yes, I was dumb enough to use the same browser - both with VPN - and to save passwords, but they weren't the same PW. Why would it show me as logged in on the "bad" account in my new one when I went into my profile to deactivate?)
What was I fucking up there? Am I foiling myself by remembering passwords? Should I have cleared by cache?
I was using a VPN and still fucked myself over.
Does deactivating help at all? (I was caught because stupidly I had not deactivated the old tainted profile...but I have more. I was an asshole on one profile, pissed off a sub mod on another, and they banned all of my accounts...probably 10 accounts.)
Now even new accounts with no email are flagged, used on the vpn.
I would like to continue to use reddit in the future. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask and very repetitive, it doesn't seem like there's any spec. sub for this.
