Please don’t shoot me for what I am about to type - but this just seems true.... unless you’re pro-eu or gay then you’ll never win an argument on DS.
I don't think it's that at all. It's poor moderation across the board. I got a warning after returning thanks to their amnesty for something minute in comparison.
The standard of conversation continues to be ridiculously poor.
Oh, on the contrary. I do believe that is it. You darent have an opinion other than theirs or they will try and shut you down.... either by rounding up others to gang up on you or by constantly reporting you to the mods so you are then unable to post back whilst they continue to mock you.
I'm not saying this is the case here, but almost every time I hear someone suggesting this sort of thing is going on, it's actually valid complaints about the content that gets it removed - it's almost always those people posting lies, "fake news", conspiracies, and inciteful material being the ones who complain, and they always label it as a conspiracy by a small number of other users.
Like I said, not saying this is the case here, but it does sound like a familiar situation, but then again, DS is a horrible place to post anyway and it's not difficult to run against one of the cliques.
