    As I have said, I have almost no influence. Forums are just my hobby and addiction. But then, many other people on the forums are in the same boat.

    You stated that it's important to pressure X to not discriminate but excuse yourself from that process because you say you have no influence.

    Do you not see the contradiction in that?

    I DO exert the very little influence I have to make people aware of important issues which are swept under the carpet. This is one of my contributions to Society -- minor as it is.


    But most of my posts are just a way to spend time. In 2021, many people are addicted to Social Media, and games. In 2000 more people were addicted to TV.

    A quick google shows us that Reddit has 2.8 million subreddits and 130,000 active communities. People are basing their opinions on reddit probably based on what they read in /r/donald_trump. The vast majority of reddit has nothing to do with politics but that is all they see. Where is the controversy in r/gardening or r/startrek? Boomers are seeing enemies everywhere and in everything that is foreign to them. If it wasn't around when they were young it must be evil. If it is used by millennials it must be some liberal, pretentious garbage. Is this what happens when we get old? When I retire will I sit around blasting everything the younger generation does?

    You keep talking about discrimination but the only evidence you have presented of discrimination against YOU is a claim that you were banned for a personal attack on another user. Do you believe that you should be allowed to personally attack others?

    This is called "confirmation bias".
    Hence, my question. If you read between the lines...most of the posters on PF are opining on things they don't know anything about. It's part of the human condition.
    Yeah, it's part of the gig. Every older generation hates what the next generation(s) is doing.

    I understand but then that is why I said it is so sad. All reddit is, is a community. It is a cross section of people and their lives. Whether they are there to talk about cooking, fishing, music or travel it is about what people in your community is interested in. The need to villainize it for "confirmation bias" reasons is to villainize your neighbors and the people of your community.

    I agree. I think the lack of knowledge on policy is why people gravitate to opinion news sources. Instead of looking at the data you have to digest you might as well have someone you like summarize it for you. That is why the big issues now are CRT, Biden being senile, media fake news, white nationalism, racism... It is far easier to take a side on those issues rather than discuss complex policy issues.

    To be fair, I pick on boomers but I realize their are many older users on this forum that are very open minded.

    It is absolutely not about me. It is about rules in general.

    So this is really more of a cause than any personal investment in the issue. So reddit has never discriminated against you personally?

    What did you post and did you read their rules before posting it?

    Why do you keep creating accounts on a community that does not want you? Do you introduce yourself in the subreddit as I am back and formerly known as ...?

    Reddit decided that they didn't want to get attacked by the Femnazi nation. They just never considered that their user base would notice....

    Sadly once they give up to one demand, they will get 10 new ones.

    Some users personally attacked me and I responded in kind.

    Nevertheless, my new account is OK.

    I have been on twitter and reddit longer than I can remember and I have never had to make a second account. Maybe you should consider it is not the platform but it is you. They keep kicking you off but you keep coming back. Maybe it is time to find a new place.

    Or just block those who attack me instead of responding in kind.

    That didn't answer my question.

    So, you're saying you broke their rules AGAIN by creating a new account after being banned?

    Or just find a new place... You have given me no real background information on this crusade or yours. No links to the offending post etc... But I am getting the feeling that you are at fault here. Regular people that interact on reddit or twitter do not have to go through 13 accounts. I am guessing your post are trolling...

    I read their rules, broke, and re-broke them. The worst thing that can happen is they ban me again, but that is no big deal.

    The direction of the thread turned toward discussing me.

    Whatever. It is not a big fault, and losing accounts with under 20 followers was not such a bad consequence.

    Why didn't you choose that route the X number of times that you were banned and returned?

    So, you find it easier to keep going to their home and breaking their rules instead of abiding by them or creating on your site to make your own rules?

    I guess I did not value these small accounts. Original thread was about global policy for hundreds of millions of people.
