  2. This seems like it could actually work. Although its a little spammy don’t you think?.

  3. @Eddie – Thats what I thought too at first, but if you think about it, you’re still providing good content (4 good replies). Thats the only way to test it. If you do junk replies, you can’t expect replies to your comments therefore, effectively, the best way to use the method is to actually post something interesting! And so, I think its not “spammy” at all.

    I have yet to hear a logical argument against it.

  4. I’ve read that Reddit ghostbans by IP, so step 9 could be to use JonDo or another anonymizing proxy to create an account and check to see if the main account in question is displaying messages. JonDo has free servers that can handle Reddit easily.

  5. Another way of determining whether your account is banned on reddit or not is by visiting this page reddit.Com/user/yourusername
    and if a 404 error is shown then for sure you are banned on reddit.
    Do not waste your time on posting from that account , make a new one.

  6. My issue with the whole ghost banning this is that trolls and spammers are the FIRST to figure out something’s wrong. Innocent users who are the victim of these same trolls often find themselves reported and eventually their comments get ghosted and suddenly they wonder why everyone, including their friends have begun ignoring them. Sites that employ ghost banning actually put the power in the hands of trolls.

    YouTube has implemented the same system for their comments. Get into a disagreement with someone and since the downvote button on comments is broke, people show they disagree by marking others as spam. At least Reddit has a downvote button so people aren’t as likely to abuse the “report” button.
