In fact, I just noticed they didn't suspend only my personal account, but also suspended @[email protected] as well!

Wrote a medium post about a Bitcoin Dev meetup we recently had in India in an engineering college and Bitcoin Knots:

Apparently it's *possible* to get to reverse an unjust ban, but depends on how many followers you have?

I wonder what # is the critical threshold... This user only had 2x as many followers as me:

My 5 year old tells me she can recite the alphabet, but only as big letters, not small letters.

o.o

To those who are saying I should have made a separate account for the whole COVID or vaccine topics, keep in mind Twitter did not merely ban my account: they banned my person, including all accounts I make either prior to or in the future.

Having a separate account would not have changed anything.

Got my 11 year old a today. Why does government think it needs to be either unreasonably difficult or forced upon people? Is making it easy and voluntary beyond their comprehension?

Remembered this instance has moderated new-user approval, and went through and approved a bunch of newbies. Welcome!

(If you requested to join and I didn't approve you, it was because your "reason" thing looked like spam - be sure to put something in that box so mods know you're a real person!)

Feel free to poke me on IRC or something if you need you account approved still or in the future.

The DMCA was signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1998. It has a weird history. Its inception came from Bruce Lehmann, Microsoft's chief copyright enforcer, whom Clinton tapped to serve as his Copyright Czar. This was back in the "Information Superhighway" days, when Al Gore was holding hearings on the demilitarization and commercialization of the internet.

@adam3us @BitKnow @Raindogdance Note I don't condone shooting someone for trying to deceive another person into getting the vaccine (the "softer rape").
If you're in a position to shoot anyone, the minimum force needed to avoid that situation is to simply warn the victim of the truth verbally.
(If they choose to believe the deceiver over you, that's their problem)

No, by forcibly injecting foreign matter into my body. In other words, RAPE.
Try to rape me, or anyone I care about, and you WILL be met with deadly force, period.

But feel free to ask me.
My answer for now is "no".

But please, when asking anyone, don't do it on false pretenses.
These vaccines are neither safe, nor help humanity.
Deceiving people into "consent", isn't really consent either, just a "softer" rape.

n.b. This was a reply to someone else's toot basically ridiculing someone for observing other people weren't wearing masks, and therefore using a N95 to keep himself safe (ie, personal responsibility).

Not sure why Mastodon lost the context :/

What is wrong with you?

Masks are just clothing. Do you complain about people wearing shoes? That they expect you to as well?

Masks actually have a purpose that affects others, unlike shoes!

To phrase it another way:

Gab, Twitter, Trump's new thing, etc are intentionally preventing their users from communicating with people on other networks.

Reminder: NOT federating social media at all is identical to banning everyone who chooses not to use your network.

IMO this should be considered a form of monopoly abuse and illegal.

A right is something you are justified defending with violence.
To oppose self-defense is to oppose human rights.

And what I was banned for isn't even actual self-defense - merely *discussing* it.

(The "threatening and/or promoting violence" refers to simply saying I would defend myself and my family against someone else actively assaulting us)

It's almost funny how Twitter tells me I have DMs, but won't let me even read them... -.-

Update: "After investigating your appeal, we have determined that your account posted content that was threatening and/or promoting violence in violation of the Twitter Terms of Service. Accordingly, your account has been suspended and will not be restored."

No link to appeal further.
