Not sure if this will work, but let me give it a try.
Anybody remember me? I was a poster for years on i09.com before Kinja, and helped some of you with art and information about satellite imagery. Haven't seen me lately because I've been blocked. One of the mods on the ODeck — 'Crashed pc/sarcasm' — doesn't like me for whatever reason, and I cannot post there. Even if I post in response to someone else's thread, my posts vanish into the ether. I swear to you that I did nothing to deserve this, other than complain (without profanity) about Kinja. That mod just doesn't like me.
It occurs to me that there may be several people in my situation. I've seen a few people posting to Gawker that I remember from the old ODeck but that no longer post there. The moderator in question may have gone off on a personal vendetta and made several people disappear.
But with the ability to follow each other's posts, it occurs to me I might be able to reach my old friends on the ODeck. So — hi! If a few of you follow me, I promise to post the occasional interesting topic. Even if my posts can never be shown on the ODeck, I'll give you permission to duplicate my posts there and reap the glory. I just want to be part of the community.
