CENSORSHIP: Shadow & Content ban

What reason was given for your ban?

I’ve had a few bans for breaking the community guidelines for nudity/pornographic material, inciting violence, and more.

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

I have a feeling it’s a mix of bots/and right-wing nationalists that I pissed off a while back, mass reporting anything they can.

Were you able to appeal and what was the response?

I’ve appealed them all and had mixed responses. I still have one removal that has been in review since October.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

Loss of income, depression, anger, more depression, and a small mental breakdown in which I took down all my content (600+ pieces I’ve made) and started over.

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

Art shouldn’t be censored and shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you’re an 18+ restricted account and you’re an adult viewing art, you have the right to not look at/like something that offends you, but you should never have the right to censor it.
