Well, it looks like the Mob over at Twitter has got my account shut down.
And not just the usual ‘suspended’ account either – they’re blocking my computer so I can’t set up a new account.
Is this is what happened to Tom O’Carroll a few months back? His case is even more unjust than mine since he posted nothing on his Twitter account other than announcements of new posts on his blog.
It seems that the most ‘offensive’ thing I posted, the thing that got the foamers’ eyes swiveling, got them applying matches to their flambeaux, got them, well, foaming at the mouth, was a post which said “Paedophile & Proud”: it sent them into paroxysms.
Funny how the death threats and violent images the ignorant and brutish sent seem acceptable to the censors at Twitter but my tweets, which were largely polite, if occasionally combative, were clearly beyond the pale for them.
There’s something very noticeable and interesting about the foamers at Twitter: they really hate it if you say that you are celibate and that you don’t look at child porn – they get angry because you’re refusing to conform to the pat ‘Monster’ archetype that they’ve alloted you and they feel that you’re disrupting their pleasurable and self-righteous hatred.
Well the ban is a shame as Twitter is a good way of promoting this blog and of being part of a community of similar-minded people.
I’ll look into whether there’s a work-round for the block which will allow me to set up a new account. And in the meantime any new posts will be announced on GirlChat and BoyChat.
And it would be great if any sympathetic Tweeters who follow my blog would help circumvent this ban by posting a tweet whenever a new blog-post is published.
If any of you reading this have experienced similar, or have any advice as to how to get round the ban, or can recommend other sites and ways for promoting this blog, or if you’re a friend or follower from Twitter – don’t hesitate to contact me through the comments.
You can send me private communications through the comments system too – just make it clear in the comment that I shouldn’t make the comment publicly visible by ‘approving’ it.
