There’s nothing quite like bringing in the big guns. Looks like Moira Fitzgerald‘s account is back up and running!

Hopefully, we can continue to expect quick turnaround from Twitter next time someone is unjustly gulag’d.

    Hopefully, Twitter will ban the Little Green Goosesteppers and Media Morons’ followers getting people banned in the first place.

  • Streetiebird

    Too bad the gulag doesn’t exist. People get banned, it happens, deal with it and try to not make it into some grand conspiracy. Next it’ll turn into another attack on Charles Johnson as some kind of mastermind.

    • Phryj

      No one said Jazzy the Amazing Ponytail man was a mastermind. That would imply he has a mind. He is, however, a jackass who tells his braindead followers to “block and report”, then brags when accounts get banned. He’s been caught red handed multiple times and there’s screenshots to prove it.

      • Streetiebird

        LOLOLOL thanks for proving my point :) I appreciate the help.

        • Phryj

          Jazzy and his followers are acting exactly like a drunken, abusive husband on an episode of Cops. “I didn’t beat her, she’s crazy.” That’s exactly what you guys sound like.
          And Jazzy’s the only one using words like “conspiracy” and ‘mastermind” to describe what he’s doing. Delusions of grandeur. What a sad, stupid little man he is.

          • Streetiebird

            hahaha good one :) You do know a lot of people on the right really did think it was/is a conspiracy right? That’s why Charles was mocking them. And it’s still funny!

          • Phryj

            The only one who called it a conspiracy was Little Chucky himself. Giving himself WAY too much credit, especially since he forgot to delete the tweets telling his followers to block and report and bragging about it afterwards. Seriously, get some new role models. Jazzy Chazzy is a loser.

            Charles is awesome :) He really knows how to rile up the rightwing twitter-sphere.

            Good to see you guys have someone with more talent than the usual left wing Twitchy trolls like we get around here….

          • Streetiebird

            Good try I guess… I feel vaguely like that was meant to be an insult, but it was so weak it’s hard to tell.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Yeah, I think that was meant as a complement, unless of course you feel you have less talent than the ‘usual left wing Twitchy trolls’?

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            Don’t worry. The smart kids in the room got it. Next time I’ll include pictures for you….

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      The bans occur automatically, from an automated system. I got suspended the day after I signed up for twitter, after replying to a DWStweets message that she needed Constitutional learning, and that she didn’t speak for me. It’s automated, there isn’t anyone actually clicking a ‘ban’ button. I filled out some form, and also emailed Twitter and got my account re-instated.

      Some lefty knew about it, and it’s been used as an attack against conservative tweeters. Especially new ones, like myself.

      • Streetiebird

        And even on this site, the right was trying to carry out “revenge” in the EXACT SAME way. Michelle herself was encouraging people to block and report.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          I don’t really see the point you’re trying to make with me, here. I follow Michelle, and haven’t received any tweets from her encouraging people to block others. And since you can’t block anyone on this website, I don’t see how people were exacting ‘revenge’, as you say. I was merely relaying my own experience in getting suspended. I don’t know what you’re trying to do.

        • John Fowler

          “Michelle herself was encouraging people to block and report.”

          Link?

          • Streetiebird

            Ouch you got me on that one, it wasn’t her saying to block and report. It was her telling people to hijack twitter threads about Obama, which led to people getting suspended via the automated system. http://twitchy.com/2012/05/27/hijack-alert-describe-obama-in-three-words-takes-off/

            My apologies for being slightly wrong.

          • John Fowler

            But the posters were inadvertently suspended and many were her followers. If she were to give someone directions to a party and they get pulled over on the way for a broken tail light, it’s hardly nefarious.

    “How many Gulag’ed accounts have NOT been looked into and let languish? While @dickc maintains that spam/block is more “sophisticated” than #TwitterGulag” <- My statement KAdams takes into account those who have submitted e-mail, and multiple requests… but are NOT released…

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      A lot, I’m sure, as it takes action on the part of the person who’s account has been banned to follow up.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    I got #twittergulag’d again… someone didn’t like me bringing up Bo’s voting record in the Senate about providing care for an abortion survivor, so they blocked and reported my reply as spam. Suspended…. great job, Twitter. I wish I had bigger people to appeal my account for me on my behalf.

    I replied to Cher, Jason Alexander, that Van Heuvlin commie and rosanne’s vile comments and they couldn’t handle it and i was banished. My comments weren’t vile but they can’t handle the truth
