Seems like I'm getting banned everywhere.
#1
I got banned from a web designer site because I said that I've had problems on fiverr with people that don't speak english.

Then I was banned from another site because I asked if there were graphics cards made in America.

Next I got banned from posting a clip where Biden says his electric car can drive across the country on 1 tank of GAS.

Finally I got banned from one more site because I didn't want to sign a petition against Roe vs Wade

It's kind of getting crazy these days

Sounds like it.  I'm sorry for your trouble.

While you have posted some things here I've disagreed with or challenged me in some way, I cannot remember a single thing that offended me in the least, much less being ban-worthy.  That's supposed to be part of the beauty of a discussion forum--being confronted with different opinions or challenging ideas in ways that stimulate you to think anew--so goes the theory, anyway.

It is very popular to call this weirdness "cancel culture" nowadays, but I regard that as a practically useless, humpty-dumpty sort of label.  There is a certain weaponization of feelings of offense happening now, and the assignment of value and superiority to that.  To me, it is every bit as bizarre and baseless as the current mania for cryptocurrency and NFTs.  One can only hope that this bubble bursts soon and that sanity returns.

I'm actually a very dumb and boring person.  

There's not a lot going on in my head and what little is in there usually is something foolish.  It's stuff like how the Time Traveler's Wife melts my heart or why I think Chris Hemsworth should never wear a shirt again.
So I never really say anything ban worthy.  Things are just crazy these days.

I feel your pain.

LOL, I recently signed up for a political forum and got banned because a mod thought I was someone else.  Complete insanity!

I think it boils down to extreme left rage that they are losing the culture war, and cancelling people is an easy way for them to try and hurt others.  It's very childish.

I hate when such situations occur. I also get banned a lot because of my political position.
