Can anyone name a "Liberal" site kicking members off without good reason?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by one_voice (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

Think about it. Any site at all, give it a minute.

If that were the case, if you had been kicked off without recourse or reason give, if emails were not replied to and site management completely ignored personal requests, what would you do?

Per the above post, some of us have logged back on as "New Users" in violation of site policy, for purposes of complaint.

Which would of course be used as rationale for further "Violation" under site management authority

But hey, if you were running a "Group" and had complete control, if you could essentially snuff out all opposing viewpoints base on entirely partisan criteria, wouldn't you "Indulge"? Wouldn't you (perhaps) kick a member out of that group without notice, even if it were their first post on that Group?

Membership on any site isn't worth "Indulging" site management if they're prone to complete abuse of their authority. If group rules, when opposed, lead not only to being locked out of a group, but eventual lockout from the entire site for 12 days, would membership be worthwhile?

I'll eventually remove all of my posts from the particular site I'm referring to, it's not simply worth my efforts across 3 years to be kicked off of an entire site for a disagreement with a group "Manager". Essentially, that dictatorial "Power" is being supported by "Site Management", and to answer the question asked above, membership isn't worth being subjected to that kind of abuse.

Laterz.

1. It's just an internet message board, not worth so much agony.

Also, you don't need to spam every forum and group complaining about whatever it was.

4. Democratic primary?

I thought that DU:GDP was our forum to discuss the Democratic Party's primary contest. I am unsure how your OP is related?

Thanks!

5. No doubt, it's all Hillary's fault. Or Obama's fault.

I'm sure you will let us know.

11. You can be on a site that admits all and kicks off almost no one. Discussionist.com

 

Have at it.

14. Wait. What?

You're still posting here. According to your story you posted a pro-Bernie post in the Barack Obama group. Then you were locked out of that group. Then you sent an administrator a note saying 'You suck!' Then you wrote on Thom Hartmann's site that he is a 'butt munch.' Then you posted this post a bunch of places here. Is that correct?
