LOL, yes, and even better was my total banning. THAT was fun! When two people live together and share an internet connection it gets confusing to the mods ... He laughed at me for weeks! haha...

mr. sarah__ is that you again?!

I don't think I have, but isn't that the point of shadow banning? LOL

I doubt it's really shadow banning, just that posts laced with profanity or specific words get automatically blocked by the filters.

I wasn't refering to you, Oneluckygal. Just so as not to have another battle...the one with mr. sarah is enough!

I figured you had someone else in mind there. No biggie. Shadow banning is quite real, I had that too. But when you have a friend on IM, you can check really fast to see if you are showing up.

The person I was refering to has started a few threads on this topic (different forum) and is now accusing me of getting paid to post here! I wish!

When you get banned but Topix makes it look like you can still post. You look, your posts show up. But when you log out, they aren't there. Meaning you can only see them.

Well, there's 15 cents from me. Try not to spend it all in one place!

After repeated accusations, I told him I get paid double for annoying him and triple if he complained. I didn't mention that double of zero is still zero...

Hopefully in his next complaint letter to topix he will forward my request for a t-shirt.

I had to google it a few months ago. It means when a specific person posts, their post only shows up to them. Nobody else sees it.

Ok cool thanks for pointing that out. Kind of what we refer to as the "readers club" in vBulletin forums. Thanks again Kevin.

Kevin gets ignored quite often so he assumes he's been shadow banned. :o)
