My Reddit account has been broken for 4 months.
I wrote about it previously, it’s a long story, everyone said I was banned, I wasn’t banned, it’s been quite horrible. I had to pin a thread to my Twitter account to try to get their attention, which of course hasn’t been doing me any favours trying to find work.
Turns out requests for my account page were being intercepted by a spam filter. That’s what the support staff eventually told me in an email a few days ago.
They also said:
“Going forward, your posts may occasionally be individually removed by community moderators or their spam filters so you may need to message moderators to review some posts manually.”
The account was operational a few days ago, so I posted on /r/forhire and the post was immediately removed by a bot.
The bot says the account hasn’t been used in too long, and not enough karma. All because of the spam filter. So I want to contact the mods to ask them for help....except the bot also said:
“Please do not contact mods for an exception. Doing so will result in a ban.”
Meanwhile basic things like eating food is becoming problematic for me. Finding work should not be this difficult.
I don’t want to risk actually getting banned, I don’t want the wrath of either the mods or the community, so I am asking here.
What should I do?
