A Warning to all MRAs. (self.MensRights)

113 ups - 78 downs = 35 votes

Long story short. My name is Michael Claymore, you don't know who i am, but i'm sure most of you know my associate The Pigman. The Pigman's account has been banned, and this appears to apply to all of reddit, not just the mensrights sub. I see no reason why this should happen other than the Pigman's staunch support for men's rights. You have been warned -- the hammer may very well be about to fall on this entire sub or at least on its more outspoken members. Of course, this may all be due to some personal animus held against the Pigman by someone at the top, but i doubt it.

Yes, I saw the shadowbanning, but I couldn't access your post history to try to determine what the reason was. You can appeal by talking to the admins.

Personally, I think that the admins should be required to give a reason for the shadowban in the case that someone appeals. But you can't even guarantee that.

EDIT: It has been determined that ThePigman was involved in a doxxing case. The admins are very clear about doxxing, and thus this is not a case of "political censorship". ThePigman willingly and knowingly broke the rules of Reddit.

"It has been determined that ThePigman was involved in a doxxing case."

No, it has been claimed that i was involved in yada, yada. It is not doxxing when the internet has known her real name for almost a year.

"The admins are very clear about doxxing, and thus this is not a case of "political censorship"."

The political censorship lies in the selective application of a definition of doxxing which is at best incredibly broad, and at worst simply wrong. Again, it isn't doxxing if the info is already well disseminated.

"ThePigman willingly and knowingly broke the rules of Reddit."

Again, no doxxing = no rule breaking.

Doxxing is drawing a connection/claim between a person's real life identity and an online persona.

Your post title did exactly that, as did the article. Whether the person's real name is already known on the internet is not relevant. The admins made it very clear in the past that ONLY people they deem as "journalists" can do this type of thing.

The mods of MR nearly got banned for fighting against them. But at this point, they have made their view clear and we have nothing left to fight with.
