What did what now?
A former poster was banned and then posted in social media how A51 was a den of whities etc.

He had been a fairly long time poster, Maryland fan, took some abuse over football at times way back in the day.

Don't forget the drinking and the farting and the brain farting and the fist-fighting. 
.
But yeah....color me unsurprised that the echo chamber is what gets us in trouble here.  DUH!


Spoken like a true chickenshit conformist. 

So what, in your estimation, should be the punishment for thinking unapproved thoughts?

Self-inflicted in most cases.

Ahhh, that guy. 

I didn't realize he got banned. Assumed he just got bored with his thing not being taken well here and moved on. I wasn't totally sure we banned folks at all, TBH. 

That's weird. I probably have some jokes, but they won't lead us down a good path.

We don't, but there had to be an exception for that one. Nothing he did on this board, but down South.

no i don't, but it could have.... he was posting all over twitter about how we were this and how we were that... it wasn't a good look for us, but.... i don't' think it caused any legit trouble.  

plain and simple, there are organizations that do nothing but search+scan websites... like, google... the things said here are indexed in their databases and coughed up when someone searches something that matches it.  finding commentary about political stuff is the same.  we likely were found by a robot doing just that- and they've known about us here a long time.. it's been literally years since i saw the first alphabet agency indexing us... but understand, that's pretty much standard stuff and not anything to be alarmed by. it happens to all sites.  

i don't know if it is the climate we live in (politically) that somehow makes it okay to cancel people, or if it is the development of this ministry of truth thing that makes targeting okay, but... we were sure poked.  poked hard... and i don't even know what the specific offending element was.

Exactly. I figured that would be the hardest place to get banned. But I suppose politics will do that to people.
