    Ah, that cesspool of the 'Web called Reddit where I got booted out from 2 feminist sub-Reddits in the last 5 weeks.

    I forced myself to have one just to be sociable and make it easier for my peers to interact with me

    Less than it did before, but for a long time my life revolved around NUF... And even now, most of my free time is spent in online forums interacting with people I care for.

    So... A lot. It's how I keep close to many people that are special to me after all~

    Ugh I wouldn't hang out there or in the MGTOW/TRP subs. It's like swimming in a sheep dip. I stick to the writing-related forums. Especially r/eroticauthors. Those people are legit and actually know wtf they're talking about.

    A cesspool of a site that I frequently visit is the City-Data Forums. I sent the following to 2 mods/admin within the last 45 min.
    Account A's ban has really me got me ticked.

    The last 2x mod got banned from a 2x forum for refusing to call herself a cis-woman.
    Yeah, that was literally it. I like that mod so I earned a ban by pointing out she was the last 2x female mod in the 2x forum. Worth.

    You know how a person might be distraught after getting laid off of a job after 2 years? Well, that is a similar mindset to how I feel under Account A.

    Damn that's rough. Also unclear. I knew why I got banned, but I don't understand this one.

    If the off-chance you have known anyone from City-Data who has gotten un-banned under the same account name, do you know if their blog entries are resurrected too?

    Apologies. I don't know anyone from there but I will ask around over the next couple of days and PM you if anything turns up. They could at least give you a proper reason. Even if you don't agree with it, you've clearly been with them long enough and are an integral part of the community. I mod other forums and at least I'll give them a warning/full explanation first.

    Thank you! Heck, even if they gave me the text and comments of those 10 active blogs from what it looked like on 2/24/2024@10PM Arizona time, I will take that.

    For the record, the name for Account A is "Eumaois". I don't deny that I may have been on thin ice as Eumaois but I legitimately do not know what the post was that got me a "Bye, Felicia" under that account. I PM 2 mods under my Account C but have not gotten a response yet.

    In the off-chance they ask about the blogs, the following are 10 blogs that I was actively updating. Those blogs are similar to how some of my blogs here are lists of web sites and rants. Heck, some of the posts in my blogs here were also in the C-D blogs. These are essentially dead links at the moment. Caching them doesn't do enough:

    Oh dang. You really did a lot. Even more surprising they'd terminate you without at least giving you the back up copies! It's your work.

    I like to talk to people online, it's usually either fun or interesting. I think I actually just like talking to people in general. As a super-loner, social media is a big part of satisfying one level of my "maslow's pyramid", enabling me to continue with a stable level of sanity. If I go a certain period of time without a proper conversation with another human (in-person or not), I start to feel like I'm going crazy. So yes, it effects me a lot. Despite that, it doesn't actually bleed over into my regular life in any other way I can think of right now.
    Same. It's weird...
