Some of the new Reddit mods are so toxic. Instead of apologizing for the bot being too harsh and reinstating my submission, they just banned me because I dared to ask what exactly I didn't "punctuate correctly".

I Need Help (lemmy.dbzer0.com)
submitted 8 hours ago* (last edited 8 hours ago) by Simon@lemmy.dbzer0.com to c/reddit@lemmy.world

I've been using reddit for over a decade and there's a few subreddits I've been banned from (/r/news, /r/crazyfuckingvideos, etc). Unfortunately, I keep forgetting when I'm browsing. If I accidentally comment in one of those my current account gets banned for ban evasion. Is there a browser extension that can block participation in certain communities but still allow you to see content? I can't keep having my current reddit accounts permenantly banned like this and then lose all my subscriptions and preferences and friends etc. This has happened twice already.

Please help.

I just created a community to see what reddit offer for mod.

And I see they use blackbox rule to "guess" if user is break a rule, or if user is ban evasion, ...

And they give you two options without any measurements, that is "low" and "high" confidence.

Now they are obsessed with AI. Opposite voice might be automatically labelled as breaking the rule.

The problem is that their blackbox doesn't work very well.

New account (of newly join user, or for privacy concerns) might be censor due to reputation filter.

Break rule

Ban evasion

Well, i created account for privacy concerns as i don't want to link some reddit activity to my main account, which is my online identity (fb, yt, ...)

Look like they know i am multi and they ban multi, assuming it is spam.

I am using the alt as usual, comment here and there, nice and civil words.Sometime i post questions need to be ask, for example, game community, asking for advice, guide, etc.

Being shadowbanned also deleted all my previous and further contents.

Appeal doesn't work, nobody answering.

That it I gave up.

It's been a long time since I've been ban from Reddit in May so it's been over a month. Could it be possible that they just forget who you are. I found one post talking about getting permanently ban that was 5 months old on an account still active. What ways could I get around a Reddit ban? Probably like use an email that doesn't use my name I guess and don't be too obvious. But yeah Reddit has permanently ban me and I've basically tried everything I could with other accounts. So there does seem to be a way around the Reddit ban and it seems like partly luck and making sure Reddit doesn't remember you.

I don't browse reddit anymore but when searching for solutions to various problems, many times I end up on a reddit thread with the answers. I haven't posted or commented since the exodus but I almost always have a red notification icon. And every time curiosity gets the better of me and I click it, it's a reply to a comment I left years ago.

I usually mark it as read and ignore it but last night curiosity got the better of me and I looked at the user's profile....lots of comments, all on ancient posts.

If they're bots, I'm actually kind of impressed. They'd be good and relevant comments if they were posted when the thread was active. I searched for some of the unique replies and the only result was the comment in question so it's not just copying replies. I just checked again while posting this and have a new reply - a question about a game tip I posted.

So is it someone farming 1 comment at a time or a sophisticated LLM? I'm leaning the latter but like I said.... it's an impressive one. If I didn't know that reddit was full of bots, I wouldn't have even questioned it.

Anyone else have the same "issue"?

...And WTF events related to Karma led me to come back here, because Lemmy really surpasses Reddit on all points (even if it cruelly lacks users compared to Reddit).

On some subreddits, we ask to have a Karma in comments good enough on all Reddit to be able to publish one on the community in question (it happened to me on /r/iOSBeta). I don’t know you but these communities shouldn’t get involved in what I do on other Reddit communities, it doesn’t make sense.

Another problem is users who feel superior to others because they have a better Karma. There was a discussion on r/privacy that talked about alternatives to Fire Stick and Chromecast, and one guy had proposed Apple TV, another had replied that Apple was worse than Google and Amazon when it comes to data collection. So to this guy I told him that he would have to be a little clearer by giving evidence. And there, he answers me « You’re a fresh 0-Karma account, you bring proof ».

Well, that’s what Reddit is for me. A huge social game where only Karma allows you to express yourself freely. It reminds me of the episode of Black Mirror where everyone has social points.

In short, I stay on Lemmy.

I'm a dude, but I frequently browse BadWomansAnatomy. I was having a (calm, respectful) debate with a few users regarding how a lot of people that have "transitioned" still bear hallmarks of their former gender (I mentioned one of my long time friends who has gone from MTF and still looks the same. Kaitlin and Elliot are also good examples). The ban was because I dared to use the "dead names" of Elliot Page and Kaitlin Jenner! Oh the horror! 😱

I went to post in /r/rant how I just thought it was ridiculous and it was autoremoved because I mentioned the world "mod" in the title and I mentioned a specific community 🤣

On a discussion about a revolution in Canada I merely suggested that there are no resources to protect the rich in the event of a revolution breaking out.

I even went on to explain I can't even kill ants though so count me out.

Perma banned for inciting violence, appeal gives you 100 characters to explain so I won't bother. How do you appeal a site wide ban in one sentence?

12 years of contributing to IT communities and it's all gone, that's what I'm upset about.

I originally posted irregularly on a sub and when I asked a mod for help as to why my posts weren't being approved, he randomly banned me from the sub without asking. I messaged and he said in the future I will be allowed again, he said 30 days.

When I logged out of my first account on my pc accidentally, I had to make a new one because I hadn't written my password down.

On my second account, since the 30 days passed, I made a post on that sub. I woke up to seeing reddit saying I got permabanned for ban evasion, and they won't reply to my pleas.

I found it really frustrating. I tried waiting 3 weeks after that and Making a new account. It got banned in 8 hours. Next week I make a new account, again banned in 8 hours.

I'm extremely disheartened that I got banned over a mistake and now I'm unable to use reddit at all.

Anybody else relate to this?

I use reddit for university subs as well so it's very frustrating I can't ask questions anymore.

Isn't this what upvotes and downvotes are for? Do they only want posts about billionaire mega corporations? 10% is a really strict cutoff for people that make things as a hobby. What else am I gonna post when everything else is already posted instantly? I can't post to r/pcgaming for the same reason.

I'm not trying to sell anything, it's a free download, my videos aren't monetized, I don't accept donations. I'm an active commenter too even if I don't make many posts there. My posts get lots of upvotes with good ratios, and I space out my posts so they're not frequent at all.

Also the fact that they count it site-wide instead of sub-wide means if you create your own sub or use an appropriate niche sub, you're gonna screw up your own ratio.

This is what I get when going to Reddit while connected to Proton VPN, connected to a server in the same country I live in.

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.world/post/16670881

Posting the update here because most of the users of RDX come from Lemmy community only.

Why?

A lot of users asked for a more polished viewer with more features and users in the EU now can not add web apps to home screen, so I spent some time building an iOS app. You can also save images and videos/gifs from Reddit now. It's stil completely free (with an optional donate option available), the web app also works.

You can download the app here

Previous posts for context:

My reddit web viewer still works! Story: When reddit killed 3rd party apps, I uploaded a web viewer I have been using for myself to Github pages for everyone to use...

If you want to lurk on Reddit, you can use this web reader I built for myself when I got inspired by the Apollo app years ago

i posted a fairly obscure support request on an obscure sub and instead of just saying the post isn't live, etc etc, it'll fake-show me the post as #1 on the hot page of the sub, #1 on the new, but then if I open the sub in a private window it isn't there -- so it either wasn't approved at all, or hasn't been approved yet. why lie? why why why.

it's so fucking frustrating, because usually there's literally no other place to go for support, and now I can't even post about my issue because some mod who works for free decided my valid thread with support logs and everything "isn't good enough" or god knows what. sick of it.
