After 15 years reddit banned my account by dissidentrhetoric in whatever

Read your message, and they'll tell you why. I'm sure everyone is interested.

I got banned about a month ago for finally losing my shit on groomers hiding behind gay men. Welcome!

I highly recommend deleting and/or over-writing history and deleting your Reddit account every few years. Start over fresh if you want to keep going and try to have a conversation with people. Powermods control most subs, under their main or their alts, and share everything among the hundreds of subs they manage. Remake yourself every now and again so they can no longer track you.

Redtaboo did the same thing too, but Chtorrr is taking all the heat because the image she set out to erase was just a pixel art cat, so there's plausible deniability about how and why it was there.

I don't know yet if it's trolling or real, but it provides entertainment because the bot also gives "helpful suggestions" to users who posted their photos on r/transpassing.

For example: https://archive.ph/QK9UG

Sometimes users rage at the bot for daring to share their public photo elsewhere while also NOT hugboxing them.

Your contributions may have been banned by specific subs for being off-topic.

SaidIt is a free speech site for the most part, but it does allow subs to be community/subject-focused and not allow alternate or questioning/debating opinions. Those subs must state in their sidebar that they are not open for debate and/or censor alternate opinions, and must remove themselves from s/all.

So, some subs you will not be allowed to learn by asking questions. They don't want that, so you can only observe what they believe and learn as a watcher.

You, as a user, need to read the sidebar explanation of wherever you post.

Beware, fellow readers .. the entire article is a story delving into deep mental illness.

Here's a small snapshot, as warning:

Weeks before my procedure, I got a block of clay and sat meditating and molding by feel, letting my body answer. The resulting phallus was the exact size I’d been requesting. For days, I lay on the floor on and off in the sunlight coming into my living room, asking my ancestors and transcestors for guidance. Some people might kill for this kind of access and choice. Certainly many, many, many, many people have died in the fight for it. One night, I woke up from a dead sleep, and all I heard was: Take the big dick.

His kind has been claiming TERFs are abusive and harmful already, so it would just fuel the narrative if real women fight back and become the problem. "Gender Identity" has become a legal protected class in many areas of the world.

The actual issue is fetishes and pedophilia are becoming accepted and mainstream, and WE ALL need to fight back. This is not men-v-women, this is not traditional-v-liberal, this is not right-v-left, or even LGB-v-TQ.

This is sick and disgusting degeneracy coming out of the shadows of the rich and ruling class, and washing over every single one of us real people below them. We need to set aside our personal fights and join hands to end this madness together.

Us real people can go back to fighting about our different beliefs and hatred of each other another day. We won't have the freedom to fight among each other when they eradicate and erase our actual lives.

This mental illness is infesting our society and laws, and will end us all. They are becoming us legally so they can rewrite us all in their image.

Would you rather have a childless daughter or a slut daughter? by trident765 in nonmorons

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I don't think of it as "men are responsible for everything so the rest of us can exist" and "women are responsible for accepting the fallout/compromising after that". I don't have the answers to the creation of existence, but I can say that I do not believe humans are the foundation, and therefore, neither men or women are since we're just categories of human.

I think both men and women end up in our own roles and relations to each other, and neither can take credit for the other - both of us find our place together.

But being a slut doesn't work out for either of us. On the other side of "daughter is a slut" is "son is a slut". That's the parasitic relationship. A slutty girl gets dick from guys who don't care about the future or anyone's worth. Your son chooses to fuck slut pussy instead of bettering himself.

If you feel being a father and patriarch is the best a man can be, and your son believes that too, then your son wouldn't be fucking a slut. He should be finding a woman with the same values and building a future with his family. It's not the sluts fault he isn't, that's his decision.

A childless woman is not a parasite or deserving of death. A childless woman isn't depriving a man of being a father and patriarch - she is excluding herself from "the deal" she didn't agree to, and allowing him to decide who he wants to be with.

Do you believe women exist for the sole reason of making babies and submitting to men?

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I would rather have a childless daughter.

A slut goes through a ton of turmoil and fucked-up feelings while she's living and fucking everyone that comes along. The people she brings into her life are not positive for her, and they are not helping themselves ... everyone is very hedonistic and self-centered, and using sex to make themselves feel better. I wouldn't want my daughter to experience the pain and anguish that comes from not knowing who she is and what horrible things everyone thinks of her while she's a slut, and then the overwhelming anxiety once she finally figures it out and has to work through it to become a better person and find peace. If she ever can, because she's always going to be judged as a "slut" for her past.

A childless daughter does still experience troubles, don't get me wrong. But she has made a decision for herself, for her lifetime and any partner she chooses. A childless daughter already has been forward-thinking, and will be more able to shut-down any negativity towards her chosen lifestyle. She chooses her "family" and community based on shared values, rather than bloodline or who fucked her best.

What are you bringing to the Saidit community potluck? by goobandit in AskSaidIt

I love food and my belly shows it, happy to share some favorites!

I just made a green bean casserole from scratch, would you (or anyone) like the recipe? I've also got garlic roast beef, sausage-stuffed apples, and crockpot carnitas/pork or crockpot carne asada/beef steak. Crockpot shredded chicken is another thing I make, which is hella easy and adaptable to any flavor at all. A simple side-snack for nearly everyone is tomato/cheese/basil on toothpicks.

Maybe SaidIt users should make a sub for all of this at the end of the day though, maybe even 2 subs. s/recipes and s/slowcookerrecipes. Whatcha think?

I'm fine creating subs, but I can't mod anything else right now. So I would need someone else to be head mod and taking care of rules, design, etc.

That's a really interesting and good thing to share! How we compare our same-sex attraction to homosexuals, and judge ourselves as unworthy or needing to measure up.

There's some weird-ass shit out there about brewers yeast, I dunno about all that. I just know it tastes good on popcorn.

You can usually get it in the raw/bulk section of grocery stores, so you can buy just a little bit and give it a try without committing to a $100 period pain/headache remedy or whatever YT click-bait is promoting.

I really wish Rosie had spoken up when Ellie was interrupting and talking over her about identities and the "discrimination" of males being recognized as males. Rosie tried to stay on-topic and bring up legitimate legal and personal concerns, but she kept quiet and waited for her turn to speak again anytime Ellie interjected. Meanwhile Ellie never responded to any of the points Rosie brought up, she just kept moving the goalpost and changing the subject back to "TW don't feel good being called male, so it's discrimination".

Wait, lemme get this straight.

You got banned from a sub (for whatever reason), and rather than accept it, you made another account to keep spouting off. When you got caught and banned again ... it's somehow Reddit that's in the wrong?

Look, I hate Reddit as much as everyone else, but their rule in this area is very direct and clear. SaidIt also has the same rule about not making alt accounts to circumvent bans. It's clearly stated in TOS on both sites.

We all experience consequences for our actions ... you know that, don't you? You did something wrong, and this is the result.

Cry hard or deal with it. You get no sympathy from me.

What is biphobia? by usehername in Bisexuals

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

The overall erasure of bisexuality, been there too, many times. I've definitely experienced being "not quite straight" or "not quite gay" enough for my potential partners. Like I need to pick a side and commit to it forever, otherwise I'm invalidating other sexualities and harming them.

To what you mentioned about sluts/heretics, that's probably the most common, and intertwines. Bisexuality being seen as non-monogamous or unable to commit. Sexual orientation doesn't have anything to do with morals/ethics in a relationship, but we're pre-judged as having no boundaries or foundation. The amount of times I've been propositioned for a 3some, even while in a committed relationship ... holy shit, I would be rich.

I haven't noticed anything that made me think he might be bi instead of gay, but I also am not looking at him in terms of sexuality. To me, he's a politician who happens to be gay, and I don't care what his sexual orientation is. I want to know what he intends to do with policies and government.

Do you think you might be "getting him" because of personality or value similarities? Are there things you feel are bi-specific he is hinting at on the down-low? I'd be interested in seeing things from another perspective.

Alexis is u/kn0thing on Reddit, one of the co-founders. He and Spez are considered the only ones, now that Aaron Swartz has been forgotten and erased.

Gossip tidbits - he bounces in-and-out of being a part of Reddit as it suits him and fellow investors. He was one of the major people responsible for Victoria (u/chooter) getting fired under Ellen Pao, and is the member of the board who resigned in 2020 with the condition that a black person be hired to replace him.

He plays political games and follows the money, and is just kinda slimy all around.

Blocking users as a mod by TumbleweedFireflies in IdeasForSaidIt

[–]TumbleweedFireflies[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

And you cannot ignore the distinguished (mod hat) posts or comments regardless of who you have blocked. That I know works the same here.

That's not true. I tested it many times on Reddit when I was still an active mod and user there. We had users in the sub miss important announcements and even ModMail, because they accidentally blocked one of us. We nearly perma-banned one of our regular users before a mod guessed they might have fat-fingered on mobile, and reached out to them individually.

I just tested it with my alt/testing account here on SaidIt, which I swear I've done before, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't cray-cray and forgetting or missing a change. I have a private sub that I and other mods use for testing CSS/AutoMod/etc. My alt/testing account is an approved submitter in that private sub, but not a mod like the rest of us. My alt/testing account just blocked me, TumbleweedFireflies, and can no longer see anything I (Tumbleweed) posted or commented in the private sub, whether distinguished/mod hat or not.

if you're the mod you see the comments of people you blocked as collapsed.

This part is true, and thank you! I had no idea!

I blocked my alt/testing account, and went back to the post/comment chain, and see it collapsed with the words "blocked user" next to it. I'm going to look into what that element is, and try to make it more pronounced and obvious using CSS. The text is very easy to overlook, and I don't know how it would appear if a user has custom flair.

There's another issue with that though. I, Tumbleweed, do not have the option to even block the alt/testing account in my private sub. I removed the account as an approved submitter, in case that was the reason. It did not change anything, I still cannot block the account, the option isn't there under comments or posts.

In case the issue is due to being a private sub, my alt/testing account commented on a super old post of mine in a public sub. I still don't see the option to block my alt/testing account from within the post/comment chain itself. The only way I can block my alt/testing account is by being in my inbox seeing the comment reply.

So there is still a little something wonky with being a sub mod and being able to block users. It should be an option right next to "report" within the post/comment chain, whether I'm a mod or not.

Specifically, request #1, updating or adding code for AutoMod to have a scheduler.

The Old Reddit code had it split into a separate function which wasn't included in the code SaidIt forked when creating the site. It also required u/automoderator be added as a mod with specific permissions for it to work. Based on conversations with other mods, we THINK this may be the code for the scheduler: https://github.com/Deimos/ScheduleBot

The way they are acting means that they want you to bend the knee and neuter your own sub, because maybe you will without making too much of a fuss. A little birdy told them you might be able to be manipulated, so they're seeing if you can be.

If you don't, they will impose more rules and eventually their own mods, and as you fight those things, they will then ban you for good. They did it to several large subs before you, there is no reason to think they will do something different for you.

At least you're getting communication from Admins. Many subs before you did not. Please be sure to post it publicly and archive it. Don't let them rewrite history once you're gone.

I hope you continue to stand up and remain the same, and share out loud what they're doing. There are many of us who don't and won't forget.

They make up new words for it (as women who pretend they don't have one) or claim they get it (as men with bad gas).

This is ignorance of human biology in order to control, with a slice of racism thrown in.

Ugh, I just had a flashback of my own early 20s.

"Here's all my thoughts and feelings about something VERY SERIOUS, and I'm vomiting them out to the world ... but don't any of you dare comment or talk to me about it! This social media platform is for me and me only!"

MySpace era. Cringe. But at least I learned more HTML and CSS from being there, so there's that.

What's the current state of SaidIt? by GammaKing in SaidIt

That is very true, there are a number of subs I follow here where there hasn't been content for months. I haven't given up on them though. Every now and again, I'll even make a post, LOL. If every user makes just one post a month in a sub we'd like to see revived, collectively, we'll grow this site. We have to take responsibility for it though. SaidIt, despite it's lower activity, existed before and after Ruqqus, so that does say something.

What I think is really great about SaidIt is that the users, us real people, can have conversations again. We're getting back to basics, like Reddit was in the good days, so many years ago. Subs like TiA and SJiA can be a real part of that. The internet like it was meant to be, people connecting, not the propaganda machine it's become.

On Reddit, when I first joined, I used to follow only a few select subs where I had great experiences talking to others, even those who disagreed. And along the way Reddit changed, and I ended up subscribing to a metric shitton of subs just to waste some time, and I don't interact with anyone at all anymore.

SaidIt, being a young and in some cases, abandoned, alternative, it's on us as the users to help this site grow. So little by little, we users create or revive subs that haven't had content, just by sticking around. Maybe it's just one post a month. But that's still activity, and it helps others feel comfortable doing so too.

I didn't spend much time on Ruqqus, and I never made an account. From the beginning, it felt like it didn't have a real goal or focus other than "not Reddit". Also its UI was garbage, NO ONE LIKED THE REDDIT REDESIGN. Anyway ... from what I saw, the problem is that they allowed individual users to guide and overtake not only subs/guilds, but also guide the purpose of the site. Which is exactly the problem Reddit has currently, via un-checked brigades and powermods.

By the time Admins pulled up their pants and proclaimed what they were finally going to do, old disenchanted users had moved on, and the few that remained were outraged because the new purpose was a 180 from what they've known this whole time.

I mean, Ruqqus Admins decided to go the SaaS route. How Reddit/Silicon Valley can you get.

IMO, it's fairly quiet as a site overall (compared to Reddit) ... but certain subs are EXTREMELY active. Some of those are removed from s/all though, due to moderator rules, so you won't see them unless you know they exist.

Anytime Reddit has a banwave, SaidIt gets an influx of new users, so you can expect to see more activity then and at least some new regulars stick around. That definitely helps bring a little more life to SaidIt. I look for specific mentions of my sub on Reddit all the time and try to recruit people over also, LOL

Sad to see your demise on Reddit coming already, but glad to have you and the TiA team here! I've already subbed :)

Side question - are you and Hat going to be able to get in on s/socialjusticeinaction too? It was made by another user, but he hasn't been active and may have abandoned ship ... you could probably talk with u/d3rr or u/magnora7 about claiming it.

I'm not much of a pun-ny person myself. I laugh when I hear it, but it's more about recognition of humor and lightheartedness, and appreciation of the fun. I prefer dark and/or self-deprecating humor. So no puns from me in my daily life.

I look forward to the rest of your puns though!

Oh hi, I know you! <3

I have my own theories, but I won't speak for the mods here. Continuing to talk about how things went wrong isn't helping this thread get answers though. It's derailing, which none of us want, right? We want our bisexual community to have discussions about what matters to us, bisexuals, not focus on things or people or conversations that detract from our needs.

Unfortunately, no one has actually answered the question. Several of us have said we want that, so lets encourage it! If not in this post, then in other posts we feel matter.

Dating world & Making irl friends? Ending up alone? by Bipassxx in FEBfems

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I'm sorry, but I don't have any answers for dating since I'm in an LTR.

But for friendships, I've found that I connect best with people in real life, in neutral non-LGB and non-hobby places. I know, that's the exact opposite of what everyone says to do, they say to find like-minded people through like-minded engagements, and especially utilize the resources of the internet. I have very very rarely found that to work out though. I've been doing this since before the WWW was even a thing, and of all the online peeps I've met since the early 90s, less than a handful are still in my life.

Online, we can pretend to be whoever or whatever we want to be. We can pretend our own glaring red flags don't exist or minimize them, and just hyper-focus on the other person. We can make excuses for the other person too, by over-thinking individual words and analyzing them to the death, instead of seeing the bigger picture they present about who they are.

But in real life, we don't have the luxury of delays and a screen/shield. We can't delete the words that come out of our mouths, and we have immediate consequences for what we say and how we act. So as people, we have to be more thoughtful and precise ... or at the very least, more transparent about our thoughts and feelings and beliefs.

I'm an introverted person, and I take the "watch and wait" approach through work. I fucking hate small talk with a passion, but it's a necessary evil. I let other people talk, and make minor chit-chat to show them I'm a willing participant ... that encourages them to open up and express themselves more when we're alone or in small groups. And because of that, I find people I can connect with on issues that aren't LGB/TRA/gender at all. You can get a feel for how someone will approach the more sensitive/no-no topics by hearing how they parent their kids, or their frustrations with friends or family over the weekend, things like that. I don't have children so I can't relate to parents as parents, but I can relate to them with how I grew up, or things I appreciated as a kid, or what I wished my parents recognized about me to make things better. We find commonality in shared life values, and that helps us accept each other in other areas we may not have considered previously.

How can we convince more bisexuals to care about homophobia? by usehername in Bisexuals

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I agree that ONE of our obstacles is homophobia, but I don't think it's THE obstacle or necessarily the biggest. I acknowledge that we have other issues to focus on as well. A couple examples:

  • Xenophobia within the lesbian and gay communities which acts as bisexual erasure - some members consider bisexuals "on the fence" or not "choosing a side"
  • Judgement of our personal character due to being bisexual - inability to be satisfied or always open to non-monogamy are common views
  • Rapists of the same sex, who normally partner with the opposite, are viewed as bi - it's the old "suck one dick and you're gay" joke repackaged against bisexuals. It ignores the power and structural aspects of sexual assault and places the blame on sexuality

But you think we should just take the infrastructure they built and colonize it for ourselves?

Not at all, I never said anything of the sort. I think we should appreciate and support G&Ls hard work, and also learn from their foundation and guidance. We can build a collaborating sister/brother infrastructure which is distinct for ourselves, without erasing them or us.

It's impossible to start from scratch and "get our own house".

That's very defeatist.

I disagree, I think it's bisexual erasure to encourage us to focus on other sexualities, especially in this sub which for us and our needs. We should get our own house in order before we support or help anyone else.

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Bisexuals should care about homophobia because it affects us, we're often judged as halfway straight or gay.

But I also think we should focus on building our own community, and championing that bisexuality is different than homosexuality and still just as OK. Demonstrating that there are different sexualities can help bi people come out of the closet because they aren't forced to choose between hetero and homo. We all need to understand there's nothing wrong with being hetero or homo, while also accepting that we are not either of them, which is OK also.

When did AHS/Bardfinn target /r/FemaleDatingStrategy? Can you link me to something about this?

There's too many, honestly. I did message the FDS mods a couple times in the past to let them know when AHS posted, before I realized they were already on top of it and monitoring. AHS revised their rules recently to pretend like they aren't so obsessed and focused on certain subs ... made it so users can only post about a sub a week and things like that. Here's a couple searches to help you start digging through all the past stuff though:

AHS really really really doesn't like how FDS mods have Reddit Admins by the balls. FDS has already expressed (on Twitter, if I remember right) that they have no qualms about going to the press the second they get banned, and they've had good press already. It infuriates AHS that they can't get FDS banned. And that delights me, even though I'm not an FDS user.

/r/detrans weren't "temp-banned", they were literally HIJACKED by Bardfinn while the moderators were asleep. He literally cyberstalked all their moderators to find out when they went to sleep and made his move during those specific hours. That's how obsessed of a creepy cyberstalker he is.

They were temp-banned the same day/time my main sub was, LGBDropTheT, on July 10th 2020. One of my co-mods was keeping track: https://archive.ph/qN2tk.

He TRIED to hijack it during the few hours the other mods were asleep, but failed. Here's a post I made about it with some archives, if you're interested. I have no doubt that the only reason r/detrans was reinstated is because some very well-known and influential people on Twitter immediately started tweeting about it and nearly made it go viral within those few hours.

AHS begins eating its own, blasts a trans sub as 'transphobic' by exentrico in AgainstHateSubreddits

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Originally, there was r/TrueTrannies, which was fairly active for a small sub of maybe a thousand members. TT started getting overrun with spam, and the mod/creator was absent, so users broke off into their own subs ... r/Transmedical and r/Truscum.

r/Truscum took off because it was the first created and advertised, and the term "truscum" strikes a nerve among trans people who are being excised from their own community by radical activists.

Both believe you have to have dysphoria to be trans, and dysphoria is a medical condition - the reasons can vary though, even among their users. Generally speaking, dysphoria is believed to either be a mental health issue or a biological issue (brain/body mismatch), and typically transition is the cure. They don't all believe you have to transition though, because again, medical condition. ... not all medical conditions get cured, some are just accepted and lived with.

AHS and Reddit believe whatever you identify as is real, and dysphoria and medical conditions are not necessary (and may even be ableism or hate speech). They hate r/Truscum because it exposes their lies and deception. That sub will be banned the moment they can find even a slight reason, and believe me, AHS tries to invent reasons whenever they can.

Disgusting.

Meanwhile on reddit they are Shadowbanning This Post on Every Sub I Try to Post it. by raven9 in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Reddit recently ramped up their spam/bot detection, and many legit users have been getting caught in the crossfire.

If you're posting on Reddit with a new account, or an old account with very low karma and history, you're probably shadowbanned as a user. Not because of WHAT you're posting, but because of HOW you're acting. Repeatedly posting the exact same thing on multiple subs is spammy.

You can confirm if you're shadowbanned on Reddit by making a post on r/Shadowban, the bots will alert you one way or the other.

"Pearl" is obviously a fake account - either an astroturfing bot, or a real person trolling to make trans people look bad.

I was shitposting in response to "Pearl"s bait. Do I need to step up my sarcasm? Was I too subtle? Did I use too many TRA phrases that I seemed like an NPC? I thought I walked just a fine enough line to demonstrate the ridiculousness, while also encouraging the bot/troll.
