I was the operator for saidit chat this epoch. At the beginning, it was just me (weegspeegs), Jesus-Christ, and usehername. This epoch started at 23UTC. Over the course of the first hour, I banned psychobitch for previous bad behavior, negrogre for their name, and MrProtest for speech attempting to obviate my protest.
At approximately 0115 UTC, the epoch was unprecedentedly reset. When I entered chat, shoes was the operator, and only three others were in chat: ukromeo, loves2smootch, and package. I had been made to understand that only d3rr was capable of manually resetting an epoch.
Here is the course of events that led to my being banned within five minutes of joining #subscribed:
21:28 weegspeegs lolwut
21:28 weegspeegs I lost my comment about the Ukraine solidarity protests because of your unprecedented actions
21:31 weegspeegs So I am not allowed a fair petition
21:31 @shoes sets mode +b weegspeegs!@
When asked, shoes informed me that I "wasn't allowed to ruin chat for everyone else"
I simply am protesting having my entire life savings confiscated by go1dfish. The link between them and saidit is well established in that saidit is the only other public node for notabug. Many of the responses I have received support the theory that many users of the website are familiar both with go1dfish personally as well as the whereabouts of the money involved. I have likewise also posted proof of my sending this money of which I received neither confirmation nor receipt from go1dfish. Not long after this sending, go1dfish disappeared. This was not a factor I had considered in my decision to send the money. I was at the time in a bad place and unsure whether I was safe in the short-term. To me, the admin of the website notabug, which I had frequented during the entire pandemic (up until that fateful day of transfer in September 2020) was a relatively safe place to act as custodian until I was in a better place. This in addition to the fact that go1dfish was a vocal supporter of "getfairshare", I truly believed that I was sending my money to one reasonable person.
Suffice to say that I just have not heard anything from go1dfish since. And my finances have become unmanageable; I am unable to find a place to live at all. Does anyone here know anything? Well, aside from the gaslighting and verbal abuse I have encountered here (since my protest began about a week and a half ago now), there have been some indications from u/usehername that my money is actually being used by some users of this website. This is fine: I am willing to compromise. But to ignore me entirely and then ban me on the off chance I become operator is just more of the same: skewed outcomes where I am given no opportunity at reconciliation with the situation I have been put in.
