It's taken a while, but now Drew Curtis finally admits that Shadowbans exist. http://forums.fark.com/cgi/fark/comments.pl?IDBlog=35&togglehtml=1&ok=486980901&cpp=1
The Documentation: (This is the Main Section of the Site) * Original Page, by Bloodynose/Ratfucker * Part 2, Contains updates since the original page was made The Shadowban Proof Page, this has screenshot examples of what you experience when you are shadowbanned, the fake DB errors, the disappearing posts, the result of having a profile that is shadowed, the issues that come with shadowbanning paying users and the legal implications of it. * Examples from other users that have been submitted Other examples of shadowing posts, profiles as submitted by other people on various forums or directly in email. Explanations will be given with links to original threads of each example when possible. This page may also contain links to deleted threads. * Miscellaneous Stuff, including links and screenshots Links to other sites/pages that link back to this one, other sources of Fark dissent, and some screenshots that were preserved for posterity.
Random Stuff: From: http://www.bannination.com/comments/5005283 Screenshotted for truth. The above thread and screenshot comments were in reference to a Fark thread where a surprising number of "inappropriate" (according to usual Fark moderation habits) posts were left for everyone to see. http://forums.fark.com/cgi/fark/comments.pl?IDLink=2916347 FARK Sad Fark comment threads are beginning to look more and more like 4chan. What the fark happened to this place? Posted to Geek on Sat, 07 Jul 2007 at 2:06 AM The above thread at Fark further demonstrates the hypocrisy behind filtering certain community sites out of existence (such as Bannination) but allowing people to discuss similar sites like 4Chan, Reddit, Digg, Slashdot and so forth.
