- Lisa Guenther, Solitary Confinement: Social Death & Its Afterlives
Your keys stand motionless at attention, ready in case you decide to type any more of your long, well researched dissection of some controversial topic. This has taken a long time, consulting articles, papers, book excerpts. Confident that you have just produced something valuable, a crystallization of knowledge made comprehensible, you feel a mild sense of pride. You submit the comment, and wait a few minutes to see where the conversation will go next, or if someone is going to find a typo you missed. Nothing has happened. Nobody has voted on your comment. Nobody has replied to your comment. Nobody ever will. You have been shadowbanned.
