    I saw a headline, didn't read the article

    The headline implied someone had joined a social group and sent messages for a year with no replies

    I have some ideas of how that MIGHT happen but nothing definitive

    That was me, I posted this link yesterday, but asked to have it removed because I meant to post it in ''Free Thoughts.''

    https://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-47888242

    Apparently, he was ''shadow banned'' on Reddit, which means that his content was blocked but he was unaware of it. So, he was stumped as to why he wasn't receiving any replies, upvotes, etc. He kept posting though, despite the silence. lol It was all a misunderstanding, he really shouldn't have been shadow banned at all.

    Got it and thanks for giving me the story

    Although I have soooo much free time it's surprising me how much is being taken up with trying to keep my financial situation in the black

    Thankfully Inul is doing the paperwork on visa status. Puts paperwork in front of me Sign here here and here. As it's all in Indonesian no idea what it's saying. Few days later shows me the papers with official stamps, informs me I have permission to stay another month

    Anyway thanks again

    It has been awfully quiet, hasn't it? Odd, really, given that several other forums I used to frequent are no longer in service - you'd think the members would be looking for a new place to vent their pet peeves, theories and revelations.
    Maybe it's just run its course - maybe every peeve, theory and revelation has been talked to death.
    (Is that how the world ends? Not with a bang or whimper, but a yawn?)

    I think that's it. It's like the Trump administration. You hear of another crazy story, it's just another day, another dollar and eventually it's just a big yawn and you just can't get worked up anymore.

    Quantum Quack is under lockdown for so long he can't muster up a post. Tiassa doesn't have another blogging post in him, entropy reverses, there is no more movement, time ceases to exist, absolute zero is reached and there you have it.

    I know I can't start a lively conversation; all my threads wither on the vine. BTW, I like the avatar; I'll be dressing all my red apples in blue turtleneck sweaters. I guess, then, Kelly green hoodies for the yellow apples?
    Maybe there'll be another insurrection to wake people up.

    Leave the night-light on, I'll check in an take its pulse again tomorrow. Hope springs... well, for a little while, anyway.

    I at first took that black and blue under the apple to be a pedestal.
    But...
