I got deplatformed (Zucked) by Facebook some time ago for a very, very dumb reason. And, as such, I’m a little skittish that it might happen again. So imagine my concern when I have begun to see people from my hosting service – DreamHost — begin to show up in my Webstats.
There are two possible explanations for this, given that I’m a nobody.
One, they love my work and find me very interesting.
Two, MAGA people keep reporting me for various reasons and they keep having to double check that I’m not, like, advocating violence or anything. (I’m not.) I will admit that I say “fuck” a lot. But I definitely go out of my way to not advocate violence or anything like that.
I suppose I should cool it with my rants for the time being. It would be so embarrassing if I got deplatformed AGAIN. But, no, fuck that. I’m riding this pony all the way to the bottom. If I get deplatformed, it will just give me more time to work on the novels.
Or maybe I’ll work on my podcast dreams while I work on 5 novels. I have no reason to change what I write here because I’ve done nothing wrong. I just don’t like the unnerving feeling that I’m being watched for some reason.
