Default Rude Messages Related to Certain Bans from Certain Internet Message Boards

Example (a personal example of mine):
Quote:
You have been banned for the following reason: Account appears to be some sort of bot that posts in a broken language
(note: I had believed this ban from one particular message board was due to certain messages of mine for that message board regarding certain broadcasts I had found to had been rude and vulgar and certain ways in which many of my messages for that message board were created (for example, a message similar to this one (with parentheses): (feels insulted by a certain message above this one))

I cannot offer comments specific to your banning, because I am totally unaware of the exact circumstances you cite.

But in general terms of the internet, sometimes the biggest "trolls" are actually forum regulars who band together in a sort of "good old boy" network, and gang up to pick on members they see as different, or outcasts.

They brand their chosen adversaries as "trolls" because doing so gives them an insider "feel good", despite the fact of the matter being that it is they who are the instigators.

You'll usually hear such types babble nonsense such as "hey, we consider this to be our living room" and other self-serving exclusory rhetoric designed to prop up their own egos.

scru'em, I say!!

You have a unique posting style. Why are you posting that way and narrating your posts? Are you trying to be cute, funny or different? Are you trying to be a little bit dramatic?

Looking through your post history, you haven't always posted that way. I could understand why other message boards think you are a bot or speaking Yoda or a broken language. Maybe they would have a better understanding if they knew why you were doing it.

I had discovered I was more comfortable (and less shy) with that style. As for the questions of whether I was trying to be cute, funny, dramatic, or just different, I would say no to them.

That's good to know. You should continue whatever posting style makes you most comfortable.

I was banned from the Illinois Loyalty message board for Fighting Illini fans apparently only because I posted a lot talking about one of their competitors -- which was only natural, because I knew a lot more about them. No confrontations or breaking of any known rules, no bad language. They never bothered with any warning or PM (message) of any kind. I hope they lose every game now, what a shafting.

Banning for me has become second nature. Let's see if I can remember sites that banned me:

My first profile from POF because I stated I didn't want to date single dads. Apparently, this is the new "evil". Because of this stance, I got banned from City-Data, Enotalone, and Loveshack forums. I got banned at one point from the TVLand forums because I stated their reality shows are junk (well they were) and from unemployed friends (now gone) because I stated that *gasp* people should be paid based on skills and not everyone deserves the same. I got banned from a Facebook page called "The Entitled Mombies are at it again" because I stated people shouldn't receive welfare just for having kids, and from childfree Reddit for telling someone they didn't belong there because they had kids.

TVFactFan, how many sites have you been banned from buddy? You could probably write a book. It might be easier if you listed the sites you haven't been banned from yet. LOL

There probably aren't many people left who haven't been banned from city-data. We have a lot of city-data refugees. I think TVFactFan lost one of his jobs because of it.

My friiend who is a co-admin there (Yac) told me to just start creating acct after acct if I really wanna be there because he doesnt wanna get involved with staff,he says they are being ridiculous about me....... I have had over 300 accounts since he told me to just do this.....

He said they thought my Pms were bizzarre and they dont think I am real (They think I am acting on CD)

I will not let them push me off!!!!!

I DIDNT DO ANYTHING WRONG THERE!!!!!!!

YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD GIVE UP AFTER ALL THIS TIME!!!!!!! (But they keep blocking me -- THEY MUST BE STUPID)

They just had a massive spam/porn attack there and they are worried about innocent people like TVFactfan,me and Caroline who dont do that!!

I lived not far from where the alleged office was and was considering (pre Covid) driving there. It's in an office building and the owner is allegedly related to the Russian mafia.

The one admin there is a horrible person and many of the posters are alts of them. To tell you how bad it is go to their political site, it makes the rightwing posters here look like Bernie Sanders supporter.I'm talking Klan supporters, etc. It's bad.
