What Facebook groups have you been banned from?

It's a puzzle ...
The safer question would be: What forums - apart from CycleChat - have you been banned from?
I was given a warning on a programming forum (I forget which one) for being stupid enough to post on a thread after it had been officially declared 'closed', though it had (obviously) not been 'locked'.

I was subsequently given a 'final' warning for daring to suggest that it was wasteful and unhelpful to have scores of threads on the same topic rather than extending a pre-existing one.

At which point I decided to give myself a lifetime ban from the damn control freaks ...! :laugh:

I know. They are a vicious lot. Handbags at dawn and all that malarkey. :laugh:
:smile:
Nothing surprises me about folks any more - socialism, the nicest ideologies and beliefs imaginable, religion, gender politics, sewing, whatever - all can provide the arena some folk need to exercise their twisted egos.
Never been banned from a FB group but then I have pretty much banned it from my life from the beginning
with its evil twin twitter.

Not been banned from our allegedly local information page but threatened along with others for having opinions which do not please the admin.

Mrs D tells me that our village page is run by a bunch of self appointed arbiters of what is right to discuss, or even what views to hold about village life. Some wag has apparently started a Not the Our Village Facebook page, and instead of green fields and picturesque cottages the cover photo is a supermarket trolley in a ditch. It's apparently many times more popular that the regular village page.

It may be true, but in these sensitive times was it even worth pointing it out? You know what folk are like nowadays. Even I, who spends most of my life with one of my feet in my mouth, knows that no good would come of that.
 
I've had three 30 day bans from FB for various offences to do with biological reality. Am perma-banned from Twitter for writing: 'Aimee Challoner is a man' - a basic truth which was reported (and upheld) as 'hate speech'.
I could understand if you'd posted 'George Davis is innocent'.

Keeping silent on this subject puts women's rights at risk of erasure.

Colin, you're so right.
To me, it's so annoying when one searches for something, there's a thread with the unanswered question on a forum, but it's locked.
Back on topic, I've not been banned from anything on the net, ever.
That's because I'm quite good at walking away from online confrontation.
Meanwhile, in real life: :boxing: :gun: :evil:

Only been banned from one. An American Buddhist magazine's FB page that was quite good until a bunch of pretentious twats took it over. I pointed out, with examples, that their writing made no sense (which was true) and just because you use lots of words of more than 3 syllables, doesn't mean that your writing is intelligent or makes any sense. It just shows you up as someone who likes to think they're cleverer than they actually are.

Oh dear ^_^
