CENSORSHIP: Content, account & shadowban
What reason was given for your ban?
Not following the “community guidelines”.
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
Because my content was showing a diversity of body parts.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
Yes, but their response was that the content couldn’t be republished as it indeed was going against “community guidelines”.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
Frustration and increased “self-censorship”.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
That the efforts of those who fought for the freedom of expression are being trampled by ever-growing “social” media without triggering any reaction from the broader public.
