It appears to be a stealth-ban. Your account and all your posts are still there.

You are a martyr. Welcome to the ranks of the banned.

ok I am gonna go full on conspiracy theory, but maybe they created fake lurker accounts to ask this site address and see who pmed them and be able to ban them.

actually i am pretty sure it's that :gg:

Also, just FYI: I am an admin of this site, and I want to say that it is impossible for us to read anyone's private messages. It could be different on GG, idk. But with this site, it's not even an option. So don't worry about that ever happening here. :)

maybe sweetmm can find out why you were banned seeing as she's a mod over there. Be interesting to see what they come up with.

@daphenaxa have you talked about PMing people the link? I mean here in this forum? Because i'm sure someone from there reads here, so that could be it.
Not saying they don't read PMs (i'm sure at least Morgan sometimes does), but who has the time to check the PMs of all posters?
Because i have been PMing people with a different account from another IP adress (i haven't even posted in the thread with this account) and i'm fine.
On the other hand, when have they ever been consistent?
And maybe i'll be banned again soon.

And welcome to the club of banned people who have no idea why they were banned!

I think they ban you because the post you made in the main thread. I've been pm-ing people since the first day and my account is normal.

Also they can't read pm's is impossible.

wtfamidoinghere yeah you're right maybe they are lurking here. I think I said that I was PMing people once

majitzu what post? i didn't post anything on GG since I came on this site. or do you mean a post on the main thread here?
tbh be careful, and refrain to PM the accounts that have only 1 or 2 posts and that ask for the link because i still think they created fake lurker accounts to identify who PMs the link and ban them.

illegal didn't always have the best knowledge and tended to go along with a lot of obviously untrue rumours. one in particular i remember was that he backed up the claim that in 2012 dan had gone onto phil's twitter to block an account from it, because of course phil wouldn't block someone on twitter the claim was that it was during one of phils liveshows, i pointed out that was untrue, i was told i was wrong :roll: safe to say i won't miss the objectification of dan at the same time as the more negative remarks on his personality/appearance sausage fingers? the boy is spindly
lol, I think there's a theory that that account was illegal's. He's denied it multiple times, though. But, he's definitely one of those people who thought Phil could do no wrong and that Dan was the devil, so at the very least, he identified with the dude who got banned.
I kind of joined just to see this thread (otherwise I would have just lurked forever), but I've really enjoyed seeing the second downfall of GG.
A mod or admin can let me know if this is out of line but I'm surprised it kind of took this long for anyone to say smth negative about illegal (I mean, he was a mod so I get it but still). I don't have any receipts but I can say with 5000% certainty that that account which Phil blocked was illegal's. Also, he was really awful back in the days of the early threads and the initial Google Drive migration, y'all should be glad he didn't want to join this place. I'm sure no one cares about old ass receipt-less drama (no matter how much I wish I could share it lol), but him calling Dan a cumbucket is nothing compared to most of the things he would say back then.

I am curious af, tbh. You can post what you want, we don't have much restrictions here (it's basically "don't be rude", and "don't do something that can get us into trouble with the law").

But, ofc, I'd recommend that people take everything said without proof with a pinch of salt, instead of blindly believing people, but that is the responsibility of the people here, not yours

I'm super happy to get to post this tbh, messy bitch who lives for drama and all. And of course it's understandable that people wouldn't believe statements with no proof (I never saved much stuff in the first place and haven't talked to the people who did in years, I doubt they'd have kept stuff either). I deleted almost everything I had saved from back then.

Note: I feel like this following story might be kind of confusing and possibly uninteresting now that I wrote it out.
So to keep this kind of short but still coherent [after writing 2 paragraphs, I redact this statement, it is neither short nor coherent], in the old (super anti-Dan) threads, a bunch of regular posters decided to start a Google Drive to make a "real" Draw My Life for Dan since he would take forever to upload it and would downplay a lot early Phan stuff. Of course, this new private place for communication resulted in lots of ~secrets~ being revealed, people who were posters revealed their phandom drama-stirring blogs (one of which even got a message from Dan asking them to stop posting his old regrettable photos).

The first drama of the Google Drive (which was mostly used for communication via a main Google Doc and the little chat on the side that people would save manually in an extremely inefficient manner) was due to a particularly douchey poster who would mock people who self-harm, call Dan fat (three guesses as to who happily joined him in that triggering fuckery), call Phil ugly, and say increasingly rapey and serial killeresque things. He also had the brilliant idea to use his actual official school email for the Drive which revealed his full name, so he was eventually #exposed and ousted. People generally supported this. illegal was good friends with this scary ass person and felt we had all unfairly ganged up on him bc they frequently had uncomfortable (for everyone else) flirty conversations in the chat and really enjoyed mocking Dan's weight and sharing links to gay porn.

illegal constantly denied that he was the guy who was blocked by Dan and Phil, despite them having identical writing styles, liking and disliking the same things (Phil and Dan, respectively), making the same specific spelling error repeatedly (costumerserviceblog instead of customerserviceblog - this typo appeared in asks sent from the blocked guy's blog to a phan blog and also every time illegal mentioned it on the Drive), and being from Portugal (the guy who was blocked said he was from Portugal on his blog; a few people on the Drive had blogs with statcounter so they'd get frequent visits from all the countries people in the Drive claimed...and Portugal. illegal constantly insisted he was from Spain, that he'd never gone on their blog, etc.). As time went on, he would also say increasingly implausible things about himself, like tales of sexual exploits that read like Larry Stylinson fanfic, that he worked in a really important family business doing computer stuff when he wasn't on the Drive despite the fact that he was on there all the time, that his family were millionaires so that's why he's secretive about his identity. When people had positive things to say about Dan, illegal got really pissy and tried to insult his shirt or say he would never watch his videos and try to get people to discuss something else. He'd also often authoritatively claim things were Phan facts when they were actually random theories people made up, often in the doc/chat itself.

There was a poster in the Doc (and the original threads) who was a 14 year old girl that some people found annoying (but really, she was just very 14 and innocent/naive about things....also not a native English speaker) and illegal particularly hated. Once she found that someone had changed her from being able to edit the main document people used to communicate to just viewing it. Only some users (incl illegal) could change permissions. Someone switched her back to being able to edit, then it was switched to view only again. The document said it was last edited by illegal. He didn't say anything in the chat until someone switched him to view only, then he suddenly was super angry, said he wasn't near his computer and wasn't looking at the chat, threatened that if he's removed from the Drive, he'd share everyone's personal info/blogs/etc. (we literally had a document where everyone shared their name, age, location, tumblr link...what a mess).

Later, the aforementioned 14yo girl illegal bullied and antagonized found some circumstantial evidence that illegal's stories were fake and that he was the blocked guy; in the chat, she ended up arguing with him about something (saying his claims of being a millionaire are fake probably). He was really vicious and mean towards her and told her her parents should have aborted her. This particular statement was the tip of the iceberg for me bc it's one thing to be fake and mean and shady, but I feel like a grown ass adult (as he claimed to be) telling a child they should have been aborted is just a new level of fucked up.

Over time the Drive died as people lost interest/found alternative ways to communicate with the people they befriended. illegal presumably returned to GG which was resurrected into a significantly better place until it exploded due to being run by demon ass bitter control freaks who lie about their identity.

[I don't know if these things sound particularly bad with no context, but I feel like I have at least made a valiant attempt at recording this tiny piece of niche phandom history]

They do in fact sound particularly bad. No wonder he didn't have a problem with the GG mods. Turns out he was just like them all along. Bet the reason he didn't want to join IDB was it would have meant losing his power as a mod.

Thanks for sharing. Really interesting and unexpected background to the Draw Dan's Life video. Anyone else who knows stuff like this should chime in if they'd like.

Speaking of ancient GG history though did anyone ever find out who Turnip was? The account of two people who claimed to have known D&P back in the day?
