Hi, I really hope no one minds me adding my own two cents into this topic and my ban (I know a few people were asking about me).
I was IzzySmi
on GG and one of the first to be permanently banned 3 days ago, some of you may have noticed I had absolutely had nothing to do with the "debate" about whether Gabby cared about the lives of anyone
or as Gabz_is_Shite
tried to imply - she only cares about her Mulberry handbags Nesoi
lied, I received no warnings before my permanent ban and in fact I have never received a warning on that forum EVER. I don't believe any of my posts were ever moderated/edited either as there was simply no need. So why the lifetime ban.. AND, why the two IP address bans? That's right, both
of my IP addresses from two different homes have been banned so I am unable to even access the site never mind read it or make another account. (Thankfully I do have two devices with data that I have never previously used for GG so I can sort of read the forum on those - it's hard work though).
I know I broke no rules, I know people didn't report me for flaming/trolling either as my last posts on the forum were about Gabby lying about sleeping naked (sooo offensive yo), edited eyes in selfies and buying Hobnobatron an Easter Egg and before that I hadn't been online for over a week due to being busy.
I do know why I was banned though, as some of you probably knew - Gabz_is_shite
and I used to be quite friendly and we'd PM regularly, now that all went sour in 2015 when her behaviour began to change and she repeatedly picked on an 18 year old regular on our thread. She'd pick on her posts relentlessly, mock her boring
psychology knowledge, tell her off for mentioning Gabby's anxiety and accuse her of diagnosing (even though mentioning Gabby's anxiety is allowed as the rules state we're not allowed to discuss mental health issues the YouTuber has not mentioned themselves, Gabby has mentioned numerous times about her anxiety) etc etc and I agreed with the 18 year old in question about a certain topic of contacting Red Hare & all of Gabby's sponsored brands as GIS
was pushing for Gabby to be "fired" which in itself seems a bit too nasty for me however I stated that I agreed with the 18 year old and that Red Hare simply didn't care about her behaviour so let's not encourage users to continually email them like Gabz_is_Shite
was doing. Of course I received an angry PM from the not-a-mod-yet saying how dare I stick up for the stupid little bitch that dared to have a differing opinion to GIS. LOL. I tried to reason with her via numerous PM's but she was infuriated (apparently the girl in question had disagreed with hr once before months previously and it'd stuck in her mind) and I said "Look I think this is a bit silly, if someone has a different opinion to you once - that does not mean they're your lifetime nemesis. I PM with lots of people have disagreed with in the past." because really, most of the GG posters are lovely. Even when you have disagreements with them we're all old enough to be kind to one another and chat happily. However Gabz_is_Shite
did not agree and I was promptly put on her "Stupid little bitch" list which tbh many people on the velvetgh0st thread are on (and probably don't realise it) but we won't get into that.
Now she didn't pick apart my posts or act snarkily to me like she did to the other girl and many others, for the sheer reason of our previous PM's. I knew way too much about some of the stuff she did and she'd commented numerous times "don't tell anyone on the thread about this", about totally
normal stuff like having numerous Twitter accounts purely for the purpose of "sending Gabby nasty shit lol"
emailing my GaBully thread to numerous newspapers and journalists (wasn't particularly happy about that) and accusing another GG thread of having the biggest bullies on the planet (lol, why? because they didn't believe you were an insider?) etc etc.
Completely normal behaviour for someone with a full time job in the industry eh
Not to mention mocking a certain user for immediately PMing her after an disagreement on the thread and of course - talking about her job.
I'm not going to go into the topic of her job too much because my god I don't have all day and this is taking too long as it is, but it's complete bullshit. She isn't a YT insider at all, the sheer amount of time she's online suggests she doesn't even have a job and she's told numerous different stories about her YT
job. One being that she only works with brands to help them find suitable social media people (lol wot you saying Izzy?) to promote their products, another being that she works with small bloggers/instagrammers etc and the doozy being that she's management for 2 of the biggest YT males in the UK. I did accidentally stumble across proof of one of her "very big insider truth facts" that completely discredited it as a blatant lie. I have since found some other things but I didn't mention them due to her being a mod and I was repeatedly warned by other users that could see through her lies that she would undoubtedly be reading my PM's.
I also saw NaughtyMinx's first and LAST comment *sob*. I know a certain Mod painted her to be a nutcase (who's to say she isn't though, I ain't diagnosing nuttin) and that was probably because NaughtyMinx's comment actually stated that Gabz_is_Shite
had put misinformation in the velvetgh0st FAQ and if she was going to post in the FAQ, it should at least be truthful otherwise it compromises the integrity of the entire FAQ (very true) and she also went on to say that if GIS
(seriously couldn't she have an easily typable name *sigh*) truly worked in the YT industry then have some decorum because her bosses/company will certainly know who she is and will easily be able to find out if she's posting (and now moderating) on such a site anyway NM's comment was immediately deleted and her account banned. Anyone surprised? Me neither. Oh, plus GIS
's post was edited by the next morning, and the info had been removed.
Anyway, I could go on and on about the things I found out but I won't. I'll tell you this though, when I was finally able to go onto GG on Thursday via my phone (the day of all the bans) when I was navigating through different threads via the Board Index, guess whose very noticeable pink name was ONLINE every time I went there? Gabz_is_Shite
and then the next day she comes on pretending she'd been out enjoying herself the previous day and the bans were all news to her? HAHAHAHA. Why you lyinnnn.. Why you always lyyyyinnnnn.Nesoi
had been regularly PMing for months before she was made a mod, I don't know why Nesoi
is so actively involved unless she truly believes GIS
is an insider and think it's her way in to find out super secret YT gossip.
I didn't break any rules, I don't care what the Mods come back and say. They're lying and I think that's blatantly obvious. Now I hear they are exempt from all rules themselves and can edit posts whenever they feel like it. Wow, so they can basically make it look like you've said something you haven't. Delightful.
Thank you to the lovely ladies on all the threads I was a part of and the support people have shown! I'm IzzySmi on Twitter if you need me or want info.
