Piscean Blowhard here.
I was banned for some reason. Why?
Yesterday, an imposter/troll was reported. I took care of them. HOWEVER, I also received several reports on Picsean Blowhard's account from 3 separate accounts. Each reported a different infraction. So, I figured the Piscean Blowhard had gone off the rails OR someone was reporting that account maliciously. I was also in the middle of dealing with a pretty serious family situation regarding an ill family member and couldn't keep working on SAV and trying to sort it all out.
Edit to add: To complicate things on our end, Piscean's account still shows the original screen name that they registered with so it was extra confusing and I wasn't sure that it wasn't another imposter at first. It took a bit to figure out because the email address was the same but the screen names didn't match. That's another reason I was so quick to disable commenting.
Whenever we receive reports of spam/trolls or someone going on a rant/starting fights, causing issues, etc the quickest thing for us to do is to temporarily disabled someone's permission to comment. Then, we look into it and can make a determination to remove the account from SAV or restore access.
Once things settled down for me I was able to look into the reports against the original Piscean Blowhard. I didn't recognize the reporting screen names when I was looking at the reports but when I looked back at the list of recently banned accounts, I found it was two different accounts who had recently been banned who were reporting Piscean Blowhard. Then, I restored access.
We have over 10,000 site members. It's a lot to handle. Not everyone behaves on here and not everyone gets along. We want SAV to be a safe place for people to talk, gather virtually, and share our disdain and frustration for the anti-vaxxers that are making people's lives more difficult. But when we get reports that someone is not behaving we try to respond promptly before things get out of hand. It will eventually get sorted but sometimes it takes a bit of time.
I hope this clears things up for everyone.

Thanks for looking out for us VaxxyLady, and I believe keeping things running smoothly in SAV is at times akin to herding cats. 🙀😹🐱
I think herding cats might be easier! haha!!!
Well, I'm glad for the happy ending.
Back to regular programming.
It was probably a mistake. I'm not sure, but I think there was a troll who impersonated you, and you were accidentally banned instead of (or in addition to) the imposter.
I did like your prior name better, Piscean.(sp?)
i am back! Thanks to Vaxman for dealing with this personally.

Are any of us really real?
(an existential question)
i seem to be a different person depending who i speak with. I don't consider this a knock on my fortitude, my principles are sound and valid as far as I can tell.
are my values my real self? i like to think so, however I don't always embody my values at all times. I love humor which is another reason I love this site.
I'm only here for the jokes and sarcasm. 😎
