I have had a recent misfortune of getting banned on Reddit. I am new to Reddit and been using for the last few days only. I got one of my posts deleted for being not totally India specific (they will take only India focused posts) but after that suddenly I got a message that I was banned but no reason was given for the ban.

Is Reddit a totally autocratic institution with non-transparent procedures? Some basic internet searching seem to indicate that it is so.

They have mentioned that you cannot circumvent their ban by new accounts or something like that. I do not understand this at all. For someone who is arguably promoting free speech they sure are mighty dictatorial.

I do not understand this logic of banning without informing as to why the ban was made in the first place.

Most probably you have been banned from only that subreddit(i.e /r/india). Subreddits can be created by anyone X,Y,Z even you and me. and the creator can assign anyone moderator of that sub. you might have posted something that violeted the rules of the sub. Always read rules before posting.

To continue create a new id and post, or use other subreddits.

I have posted links to articles of automagazines, technology and general interest/environment related posts.

The only thing that was deleted was a post of the Twitter decision to increase the allowed length of private messages. That was deleted because it was not directly related to India. Following it I was banned without giving any reason.

Do they ban for just one infraction?

Now at least I have access to other areas of Reddit.

Won't creating a new ID be regarded as trying to circumvent the ban? That may lead to getting kicked out of Reddit altogether.

Try other alternative forums its not the end of the world. If they are so arrogant then just let them be and leave them. You shouldn't be so much concerned about remaking a user id again as well. It's only internet and not the real life where you have to worry about morality and ethics on such a small issue. Internet is much smaller than your own life to worry about those aspects.

Go ahead and just do the above steps. Internet is free for all. Nobody can bound it in fractions. Nobody have the right to ban you from the internet. Just go ahead and claim your freedom.

Yeah. I can.

But I would prefer to know what did I do wrong and how do I go about correcting myself. I am usually careful about my behavior and I do not like treading on toes.

For the time being I think I will just follow suggestions of you and others above and mark this up as unsolved chapter.

https://voat.co/ is more open/promotes free speech than reddit

Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like there are many others fleeing Reddit right now to Voat but for a different reason.

nah dude, reddit is super relaxed in general, which is why some people can act like kings of their subreddit. There are probably more throwaway (temporary timepass accounts) accounts than normal ones , also The mods of r/india are kind of hated there, so don't worry about this. make a new account and continue..
