Those Things’ll Kill Ya #4

  1. Hey. Two things here. First of all I want to make sure you see this since you might be annoyed with reddit right now.

    What’s going on there has nothing to do with the mods. The admins work for reddit. they are employees not volunteers. this has nothing to do with the mods. I was planning on asking if anyone knew why you’d been shadowbanned. I don’t know if you’re reading the modmail discussion but it is in your favor. The assumption is that you were shadowbanned for a couple posts back to your own blog, and the consensus so far seems to be that we (the moderator horde) don’t agree with the ban and would like it removed.

    Despite the irony given our previous disagreement about removing posts willy-nilly, I don’t think there’s any question you’re a positive contributor to the sub.

    Secondly, if you acquired the Daves 6 online, you may not have seen the hilarious photo in the liner notes with Garcia, Phil, and Bob all singing a capella…while Jerry’s holding a cig. Classic, classic shit.

    • Yeah, I got “un-shadow-banned” (Christ, I hate the future). Turns out it was a bot or a heuristic algorithm or something else terrifying and incomprehensible.

      • Glad you’re back both places. You’re killing it here with the photo posts. The Cornell one with the long barn excerpt was really on point.

      • and before you hate the future, consider than in the past, it would have been Parish beating you up for something you didn’t do any you’d never know why and it happened when you were really high and then Billy dickpunched you when you were on the ground just because you were lying in his path and someone poured a beer on you and instead you just got tagged by an invisible robot that isn’t even real and were briefly unable to accumulate imaginary internet points

        so there’s that
