You would have to ask them. All I know is that if we cross post anything to Reddit, it is often shadowbanned. They also accused syncretic of shilling for us, as if he is our employee. Even though we're orders of magnitude smaller than them, they apparently see us as a threat or a ripoff or a pain in the ass or something. We're none of those things. We just like talking with you all.

Lol, when did they accuse me of that? Sounds like they're scared of a little competition.

Recently. I don't want to say how I know that, because the last thing in the world I would like to do is start a war of words. But suffice it to say that it is from a very reliable source.

I've actually started moderating in the SFWPorn Network again, mostly because I missed talking to my friends in modmail. I've also been pretty active in the /r/bitcoin subreddit recently (because cryptocurrencies fascinate me) with my second reddit account /u/syncretic2 - I've had a backup account for some time in case anything happened to my original account. I have bouts of depression at times and the "Gawkergate" / Scopolamina controversies (which involved two online friends of mine who were treated unfairly by the reddit admins) was a tipping point of sorts for me during an already otherwise dark time for me. Things have turned around considerably for me recently and I have a new outlook on life. The "2" in front of my username is a reminder to not let the internet cause me any undue stress in the future, especially not reddit.

That's interesting, thanks.
