CENSORSHIP: Content Ban, Shadow Ban

What reason was given for your ban?

Nudity and ‘Sex’  – although this was not in the pictures.

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

Someone complained about me and my posts.

Were you able to appeal and what was the response?

Several posts were permanently deleted from me, 2 or 3 were returned after appeal..

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

I realized that anything can be deleted, without you having any control. And that censorship is a very manipulative mechanism. I now need to severely limit myself and my work because of what I can post.

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

It doesn’t matter what you do – in social networks, owners can set any rules and change them as they like – Any content can be removed.
