@comzeradd The problem is when everyone removes your platform, and so few companies control platforms to begin with. Also by actively going against people, you actually given them more validity than if you just ignored them. People are more curious about banned books than the rantings of street profits people ignore.
I wrote about this a few years back:
@djsumdog blocking a domain or an account falls under "ignoring them". And I think that's xkcd' point. "Actively going against them", would mean that you take more direct action against their platform.
Thanks for the post, I'll read it more thoroughly. But I think there is a difference between infrastructure providers and online communities.
And a helpful addition: if you are banned from a board and you think that was assholish behavior on the part of the owner, you are free forever to tell other people, "I don't recommend Fred's* board to people because in my experience, Fred* is an asshole."
*Not his real name
