LinkedIn functions to censor thinkers, filter ideas, impose arbitrary “community standards” and ensure that the managerial class is thinking only the correct and approved thoughts.
How I got banned. And i refuse to re-engage. Don’t need their trainings, don’t need the connections
I applaud you for speaking out and I'm sorry this is happening to you and to many others. For years, I've kept a rather token LinkedIn profile and maintained a number of social media accounts, but as a semi-retired writer/editor, I hadn't been all that active on the platform until early 2020 when I discovered that experienced researchers and medical professionals were posting articles about COVID-19 there. Unfortunately, I soon learned that qualified, hardworking professionals were being censored not only for offering facts and genuine solutions, but for mere opinions. Users like me were also being 'restricted' when we re-posted those offerings, or posted related items from other sources. I noticed the same treatment was given to political posts and anything having to do with possible election fraud.... I'm currently unable to access my account due to another 'community standards' violation. If I could, I'd have already closed it.
This morning, I sent an email to request that they do so, and asked for confirmation of the action and confirmation that the contents of my profile and personal information have been removed from the site. Regardless of what or if I hear back from them, I'd never go through another so-called 'account recovery' process. Like I said, there are other platforms...
All the best to you, sir.
