      Same. (So far. I’ve mentioned Lemmy a bit over there, so it could happen without surprising me much)

    I said Palestinians should be able to defend themselves in world news and they kicked me right out, then afterwards every time I went into trash talk threads on the Hockey subreddit admins would give me 3day bans for bullying, or one time I got banned for ‘encouraging violence’ for talking about a fight that happened in a hockey game. I asked the admin if that was encouraging violence how come you allow MMA subreddits. No response.

      Reminds me of when I was temporarily banned for encouraging violence when I suggested someone needed a long nap.

    Called out on a guy that was faking being Ukrainian for getting a free card making xenofóbic comments and denying the Armenian genocide (he was indeed from Turkey). I presented prove and evidences that he changed his flair from Turkish to Ukrainian and stated saying in every post that he was Ukrainian just after the Russian invasion, and that he was doing it to get more attention from people while he went full on denying any crime done in the present or the past by Turkey/Ottomans.

    Somehow I ended up banned and he did not. r/Europe in a nutshell. I never step a foot in that subreddit after that.

    I reported a Fox News post that claimed climate change has no effect on the rise in wildfires. First time ever reporting anything there, and maybe reported a handful of racist comments before that.

    Not even an hour later I got the message that I had been permanently banned! Appealed it, they said they’d reviewed the ban and it stands. Fucking laughable!!

      Reddit mods are full of it man.

      I got banned from pc master race because I mentioned another subreddit (the precursor to hydrohomies). It has the “nword” in its name, so I was cautious and censored myself with asterisks., “water*****”. They banned me under the pretense of racism. Like what? I didnt decide the subs name and all they talked about there was drinking water, regardless of race, skin color, religion, etc. I tried to appeal, and just “alluding” to that subs name was enough for me to be considered racist. Like damn, pot calling the kettle black, there, huh PC “master race”?

          good strat when you support that kind of thing but want to make “true” statements about dealing with hate speech.

          spez has a history with some of the most disgusting subs on the site.

    I got banned once because I used to make a new account every few months and accidently commented in a subreddit I’ve been blocked before. This means reddit tracks your different accounts by email or ip address. I bet the place is evil internally.

      I mean that sort of thing is pretty much standard operating procedure for any forum. Whenever you ban anyone the first thing they’ll do is make a new account. Keeping out the spammers and whatnot is hard enough without return customers.

      Someone kept doing that to my subreddit, and did not get banned. I think he might still be at it, but I’m not sure.

      Thats pretty normal, though. Even Discord does that. Its for ban evasion. Some unsavory people will go to lengths to keep coming back to place to keep harassing people even after being banned.

    I got banned from a bunch of right wing subreddits (r/conservative, r/askthedonald etc.) because I either posted articles disproving whatever garbage the post was spewing, or called people idiots because: they would make up a bunch of claims, they didn’t post any sources, and a quick google search proved them wrong.

    I got banned from a bunch of left wing subreddit (r/againsthatesubreddits etc) for posting in and calling right wing subreddit people stupid and stating that pitbulls are far more dangerous than the average dog type, with links.

    I went to several pro-DWAC (Truth Social) investment subreddits and explained how margin accounts are “the dirty trick wall street doesn’t want you to learn!” and gave them instructions on how to request it.

    I made a semi-meme about moving to Lemmy on formuladank. Banned 3 minutes later, no reason given, they didn’t even remove the post and the mod was a twat about it (of course).

  • I made a joke about punching Nazis, on a post about punching Nazis. It was later reversed. That was like, a month before this whole migration thing so it’s kind of funny to me.

      This is it. Most people here were banned from subreddit; that’s not really that severe compare to being banned site-wide. Anyway if someone keep reposting to the banned subreddit (even by using different accounts but same device), they’ll get banned site-wide. And once they get banned by reddit, it’s really difficult to sign up with new accounts. Even if they manage to circumvent system, they’ll be a good chance that reddit will discover through one way or the other in the future (through device or IP, and they’ll be re-banned. You seem to partially confirm this.

      Once I got someone banned (not something I am proud of) because he misused the reddit suicidal report to report me. The funny thing was he actually wanted to report someone else but he mistakenly selected me as the reported party because I was replying to his comment under a different subreddit of academic/learning nature (r/whatstheword). I know it was him who reported me as suidical because my innocent comment was replied by him using swear words and not long after that I receive messages from reddit about where to get help if I felt suicidal. Anyway, once I reported him, it was quick. Around the same day or next, his username was deleted along with all his comments. I couldn’t search his username any longer. He’s vanished from reddit altogether.

    I can’t remember exactly what the topic was, but it had something to do with people using racial slurs. Someone made a comment about South Park, so I commented with the famous South Park episode where Stan goes on Wheel of Fortune and mistakenly thought that the word was a racial slur, rather than naggers. I was given a 7 day suspension, then ~4 days later, they told me I was permabanned from Reddit on all of my accounts. I tried to appeal it by saying that I was referencing the South Park episode that was completely relevant to the topic and that the topic is so valid, that South Park even did an episode on it. The appeal was denied. I highly doubt they banned me for the post. Rather, I had upset someone that was out to get me since I had been banned from another subreddit for not violating the rules at all, but I didn’t fight it. Maybe there was a mod that was in charge of both subs.

    Apparently, Reddit uses some sort of browser tracking method, because even if I used a VPN, they would know it was me. I learned that I could possibly use a VPN and Brave browser to get passed the permaban, but it meant that I couldn’t use RIF anymore, and I was getting sick of Reddit anyway. Reddit had started getting too antagonistic for my taste. It seemed like users were just taking things personal rather than have rational discussions (made up example below) Luckily, the API thing happened, and people started migrating to Lemmy shortly after.

    user 1:

    This is a pretty ELI5 response, so there’s stuff missing, but the general gist is that water expands when it gets near freezing temperatures and below.

    user 2:

    Water is actually at its densest at 4° C. Below that, it starts expanding because of the shape of the H20 molecules.

    user 1:

    Yeah, I know that. I’m actually a chemical engineer. The reason I didn’t explain that part was because I was trying to keep it ELI5. This sub is for simple explanations, and I didn’t want to confused it. And actually, you are wrong. It isn’t the shape of the molecule alone. We need to take into account the polarity of the water molecule. Perhaps, you should consider that you don’t know everything.

      the topic is so valid, that South Park even did an episode on it.

      I’ve seen the episode, and I’m familiar with the situation. I don’t think it warranted a permaban or whatever, but I’m curious as to what the “valid topic” was that South Park was addressing with that situation? That it’s ok to say a racial slur if you think that’s the answer to a Wheel of Fortune puzzle?

      Just seems like more of that, “if we can’t make jokes about literally everything, then none of this works” bullshit that Matt and Trey love to parade around whenever they do something stupid and racist.

      They love to find hide behind, “we were making a point about x,” when in reality, most of the time it’s just an uncreative, hamfisted reference to something offensive. So edgy.

        I don’t remember the context exactly since it happened months ago, and I have deleted all of my comments and accounts. I could potentially find it through the way back machine if I spent a few hours on it, but I don’t think it’s worth the effort to prove a point. I’m okay with anyone doubting my report or judgment on this.

    I quoted a meme on a topically relevant post.

    And that’s how I found out that Reddit admins had started banning on basically any use of the word “retard” (a word that I genuinely do avoid using pretty much always, and only included in the comment because it’s literally the punchline of the fucking meme).
