I guess it’s true what they say, that the path of the righteous self-promoter is beset on all sides by the inequities of complainers and the tyranny of power-mad subreddit moderators.

Having spent quite a lot of time promoting Conspiratopia on Reddit, I’ve managed to rack up probably a dozen permanent or temporary bans across a variety of subreddits.

One thing I’ve noticed is that, without fail, it is the subs which are ostensibly dedicated to “freedom” and/or questioning authority, and exploring alternative viewpoints are 100% the quickest to ban you over the smallest or imagined infractions. Almost as if they were not-so-secretly just authoritarians wearing disguises! It would be exhausting if I didn’t just chalk it up at this point as part of the cost of doing business.
