Banned From Marginal Revolution

I’ve been a regular on MR for about a year. By “regular” I mean regular poster. It started posting mostly as a way to promote my blog, but I’ve had some entertaining times posting there. My activity was lessening as I think I squeezed most of the juice from that lemon. Anyone reading MR that would be interested in this blog has already stopped by here at least once. The number of hits here from links there has fallen to a pittance over the last couple of months.

Still, I was visiting and posting. I see today that I was banned. I have no idea why as I have not been taking part in any of the touchy subjects lately. But, I tried to post something in this thread and the post does not appear. I’m not curious enough to find out why so I’ll just leave it. I was planning to drop them from the rotation anyway since there’s so little traffic from that site now. Thinking about it, I notice a lot of others have been silent so maybe it is a new thing or a new grad student is running the site. Who knows?

I’ve been banned from better places!

It is probably a glitch. It doesn’t make sense to ban you

I got banned from Pajamas Media after commenting on Belmont Club there for a decade. I think my egregious crime was mocking a homo. Oh well.

I’m pretty sure you’re not banned. That happens to me on isteve, marginalrevolution, lion and other blogs (but not yours). I’m guessing it’s some auto spam filter set up by wordpress depending on the theme and or version. Maybe someone who engineers the wordpress spam filters doesn’t like your blog and blacklisted it. Try making a post with a tinyurl instead of this domain and see if it works
