How many of you have gotten permanently banned on DU and have had to create a new user ID?

I have been on DU since 2002.

I was mad at Obama when I thought he caved on public option ..I said something and BOOM I was banned.

I appealed many times - but to no avail.


It would be nice to get my Old Id back. Because while I am Le Gaucher .. I used to be someone else ..

1. Can't say I have, and I also don't know if this is the best thread to make...

Creating a thread in which you state you were banned, lost all your appeals and created a new username to beat the rules doesn't sound like something mods will take lightly.

8. Because in theory it wasn't your 'handle' that was banned, it was you ...

If everyone can just create new handles after being banned, not really much point in banning anyone in the first place, is there?

3. Typically a post like this will get you re-banned

Hopefully the admins are feeling merciful.

4. I think the threshold should be greater

I was banned by accident several years ago. I was never made aware of an objectionable post. I successfully appealed.
I think banning should be for serial rule breakers.
Nevertheless, I think the administrators want us to be circumspect when we criticize democrats.

5. I'd like to get my old ID back that I lost when DU was hacked in 2016...

I've followed the procedure to ask, but nothing. I've been on DU about a year into its existence.

6. Banned from all of DU? Wow. I'm just banned from a sub-forum.

It's safe-space and I criticized something that's not supposed to be criticized.

11. All I have left is the obvious ... Either Bernie or Hillary?

If I HAVE to pick only one ... I'll go w/Hillary.

14. Nope.

To be honest, the whole Hillary-vs-Bernie thing really shocked me. One day everybody is friends with each other and the next day the primaries started and DU turned into a toxic shitfest.

Banned from a sub-forum.

No reason given and I have to appeal to the person who banned me for reinstatement.
