I got banned here for openly being right wing.
It was Mastodon.social instance.
I don’t know what I did wrong and no explanation was given either.
I lost all my toots and all my follwers.
Maybe someday I will ask @gargaron
You can say -Dil “Toot” gaya !!!!
So now I have come back as Karl Poopie Marx himself.
Ab ban kar kay dikhao !!!!!
@Full_marx @iakshay @design_RG Wow, if you're blocked for simply being a 'right-winger' then that sucks! But if you didn't follow their community guidelines then i can understand. I'm sure @freemo won't do such things, for no Apparent/Valid reason.
M.S and even many other mastodon incidents tend to have this pattern of behavior. They tend to pick a secret political affiliation then ban everyone who seems to be on the other side
Fear of M.S abusing moderation, as they do, is exactly why I started #QOTO so we will never do that here so long as you treat liberals with full respect and dont constantly belittle or attack others then you will be fine, even protected here.
We want people on QOTO to be free, without fear, to post their opinions and ideas. For that to happen we have to ensure we dont go around censoring people for opinions.
Be kind to others and you will always be welcome here regardless of your views.
@freemo You are very welcome. 😃
I have been seeing and feeling many similarities between the fediverse and my first experience with networking, way back in the early 90s.
Back then, all we had were BBSes, phone lines and 2400 bps modems, but there was an international network linking many of them already - FidoNet.
FidoNet had as one of its core principles something similar to your approach here:
- Thou Shall not be Annoying.
immediately followed by the corolary:
- Thou Shall not be Easily Annoyed. 😃
Words of wisdom to live by!
Yes, I did play some of the games. Sometimes you had to be waiting to be able to connect, as in most cases there was only one phone line. People had fun running a BBS in a spare computer, and we could get software galore, when there was no Internet access to the public, which only came later (about 1995 or so here in my region, Ontario, Canada).
Watching the dialing, the link negotiation between the modems, seeing the ASCII art load, it was so much fun. 😃

I found a copy of BBS The Documentary on Youtube. DVDs are no longer available, for now.
QOTO: Question Others to Teach Ourselves
An inclusive, Academic Freedom, instance
All cultures welcome.
Hate speech and harassment strictly forbidden.
I started on the BBS dialup days as well. The connected network between them was just coming around at the time.
Did you play the Doors games like LOTRD?
