For this exact reason, our maintenance is required to immediately leave if they enter and hear the shower. So sorry that happened to you.
Agreed. Many of these phrases are mollifying so that we need not sound categorical/dogmatic. Much of this has more to do with tone. If we are always apologising (of which I used to be terribly guilty) or faltering, this needs redress. But these phrases alone are not indicative of a problem: to the contrary, they can… Read more
Dear ysu; thank you for the lovely invitation and message. Was Rooo banned, too? I think it is time to retire jinni, and it’s likely for the best. I’ll still lurk, though, and will always look out for you in particular. Read more
Phoebe! Thank you for your kind message; I couldn’t read the whole thing — much less reply — since you are grey and I am banned but I treasured the words I could ascertain. Yes. We shall definitely rendez-vous at some other place and time in these radio waves. It does seem that Kinja is about to implode; I’m not sad… Read more
Thank you, ysu. You may never see this and I cannot respond to your actual post but I appreciate your response. Take good care of you ♡
I look forward to reading them.
Hi, Goddess! Just wanted to check in with you with something that has been helpful for me. I used to read and comment on Jezebel, every day, as I was doing breathing exercises. It was a good distraction, and helped the time pass more quickly. Being banned was irritating initially but has turned into a blessing; I have… Read more
Damn. How do they seem to have no time to approve gray commenters but are banning at the speed of light?
Were you banned, too, tsuiyoikuma?
Tonight, I don’t know if you will see this. I cannot respond to you as I have been banned on Jezebel, and you are grey and after the jump on the Takeout. Your point is definitely well-taken but Goddess and I were both banned from Jezebel at the same time, and I suspect that others were, too. Maybe not, though. Hope… Read more
I suspect there was a mass banning due to the paucity of posts on SNS. Though I could be wrong.
The Root seems to be able to handle dissension and debate, as well, without picking its toys up and running home when it doesn’t get its way.
Oh, I know you know! I was just venting. But now, I feel bad. Some of the commenters I missed and believed to have simply suddenly left may have been banned and I didn’t realise..... I haven’t had a functioning dashboard for years and so haven’t followed comments as closely as I might have done, otherwise. Read more
Watch out. You may be banned for criticising the Jezebel staff jinni hollers into the void.
It isn’t so much infuriating to me as resolutely hypocritical. We aren’t banned for trollish behavior; we’re banned for disagreeing with a writer. Thanks for your kind words, Dead Elvis, you have always been one of my faves.
Hey, there. I was trying to send you messages, hoping you would read my notification feed. We were banned together. Isn’t that romantic? *swoons*
