CENSORSHIP: Content Ban, Shadow Ban

What reason was given for your ban?

Sexual solicitation.

Why do you think your post(s) was censored?

The model in the image was kissing her reflection in a mirror, so I guess the algorithm saw two people making out.

Were you able to appeal and what was the response?

No.. Because of the fear of loosing my account

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

I’ve ended up posting less as I doubt my Art a lot more, but at the same time I value a good picture a lot more than before.

What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?

Don’t let an algorithm bully you. Believe in your work, there is nothing wrong with it.
