    Is there censorship here on this forum?

    I found out that another username of mine here is suddenly unable to post in the forum or give any reviews.

    I bet donuts to dollars there is censorship going on here. Covert censorship.

    WordPress admins, don’t be shy.

    Own up.

    What’s the other account you are using?

    Is there censorship here on this forum?

    Not at all. But abusive posts that go too far do get deleted when found.

    I found out that another username of mine here is suddenly unable to post in the forum or give any reviews.

    When a person uses multiple accounts that appear as sock puppets, those posts get deleted and the accounts get blocked. Sock puppetry is something that is not tolerated here.

    That is not the same as legitimately using more than one account. For example a company can use one account for offical replies and the individual members can use their own account.

    So what is the other acocunt you are talking about?

    Edit: Spamming will get your account blocked in no time too.

    I only created this account to POST this.
    Because, all my posts and reviews are not getting published on the forum at all. And no, why would I waste my time creating sock puppet accounts for?

    I don’t get paid to do this ya know….It’s a waste of my time/energy to come here and post anything at all.

    BUT – you do understand, that I/we/many of us legit users give reviews to spur the authors constructively? Many authors do not bother updating their plugins or assume everything is fine. So good reviews are to encourage them. Bad reviews (which can be changed) are to spur positive changes in them.

    And as for forum posts, of course, we need to ask or get help!

    Why do I get the feeling you are automatically assuming I am up to no good?

    I don’t know why anyone does that at all. I personally think that behaviour is insane. 🙂

    Please take a deep breath: I am trying to sort out why your real account is having problems. I am not accusing you of anything but I am asking you again: What is the account that you are having problems with?

    If you want to solve your problem then please work with the other volunteers such as myself and provide that information. That will hopefully explain what is going on.

    You were caught in the spam filter. It’s that simple and there’s nothing else to it. I am now marking your new account as inactive; multiple accounts are not allowed here for this reason.

    I am leaving this topic open for now, if you wish to reply please do so using your real Bliss7 account.
