I am further amused that he shares a Twitter banning ignominy (if not notoriety) with the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos, Louis Farrakhan and Alex Jones.

Your mother must be so proud, RH.


I doubt anyone will miss me. I enjoy using the app.

Leave my mother out of it.

WINNING!

You are Charlie Sheen and I claim my five pounds.

TroutMan 05-16-2019 09:43 PM

Come on, let the poor guy have his moment.

I said in the OP I wasnít going over the content of the Tweet because it has nothing to do with how to get back on Twitter. So why ask for it?

Well, maybe it wouldn't. But it might get your fellow Dopers to come around to your view that you've been treated shabbily.

I mean, really, russian heel, how can you not see the essential difference between your linguistically careening "When you do kindly point out ..." and the civil and comprehensible "When you do, kindly point out ...".

You're welcome. Perhaps that is why you were banned from Twitter.

Nah, I think it was because all of his tweets ended with

I wasn’t asking for sympathy.

I asked a simple question and in true fashion for this message board got skewered for it. Way too many smug jerks around here.

He also used a Midnight Run clip as an insult. He can't be all bad.

Banned from Twitter, enjoy! For a better life: you are in much better company now.
Some day you may even become a better person. And all thanks to a tasteless joke, who'd-a thunk! Congratulations!
Now try to get banned from Instabrat, Faecesbook, WhatsApp and the IRS and you will approach nirvana.

You got your answer already: to get back on Twitter try tricks to fool the Twitter system about your identity, and oh yeah this discussion forum isn't particularly happy with conversations about trying to get around bans from discussion forums.

Since the question is answered, what do you expect us to post about? Just repeating the same thing over and over? Fine, I will: oh yeah this discussion forum isn't particularly happy with conversations about trying to get around bans from discussion forums.


Also, your continued recalcitrance regarding admitting what you said that got you banned has now fully convinced me that your comment was in fact not innocent and you in fact deserved to get banned, and thus shouldn't be getting back on there anyway. Cheers!

I just want to point out that there are perfectly legitimate uses for VPN. I use it to connect to my university to get (entirely legal) access to the online journals they subscribe to. I know it can be used for illegal purposes, but then so can kitchen knives.

You know the real reason you and others want to know the content of the Tweet. One of the geeks here will go on Twitter to look for the comment using a search bot to find out my Twitter handle, which will then turn into a fresh mocking of every single thing I ever posted there. Don’t say it’s not so I’ve already been attacked like a pack a hyenas for asking one simple question.

It's not so.

Seriously. People were trying to help you. If we knew exactly what you did, we might be able to advise you better. No ulterior motive.

Do you really feel so persecuted by the "geeks here"?

Dear heart, you thought one of my posts was insulting you, so you called me a moron using a Youtube clip. I don't need to look through your Twitterfeed to find things to mock you about.

Fair enough.

OTOH, some sympathy for your plight might incline a body to provide you with a useful answer to your simple question.

Also, a nitpick: you seem to have asked TWO questions.

Answering the second one in any detail appears on its surface to violate SDMB policy. I hope you're able to find an answer to your first one. I, alas, do not have it.

TroutMan 05-18-2019 12:30 AM

Poor persecuted russian heel, attacked for just asking a question. Don't look at any of his other posts in this thread or others; the reason for the "attacks" is definitely just that simple question.

Guinastasia 05-18-2019 11:55 AM

Well gee with an attitude like that, I'm shocked, SHOCKED, that his appeal didn't work!


Psst -- heads up: if your account is banned, your posts are gone, so why anyone would go to the trouble of using a search bot (Da'fuck?) is beyond me. Unless it's just paranoia. But hey, you do you.

I am a nasty horrible person on Twitter. It’s the one place where I allow myself to vent my frustrations. My posts are often obscene and slanderous and most of them include the hashtag #daughterfucker or some variation thereof.

I keep expecting to be banned, or at least chastised or warned, yet it has never happened.

If they ever warn you, you have my permission to switch out #daughterfucker for #America-hatingfuckstick. it's not like I took out a trademark on the term.

BigT 05-24-2019 08:55 PM

I can't think of any forum where people would want to help you get unbanned without knowing what you said. People don't want to help if they think the banning was just.

It's nothing special about this board.
