Siren Kimmie Banned!!!

So, I was posting my videos recently, as ya do when you make videos, and I noticed that I am no longer subscribed to a group--as in, I was KICKED OFF!!! I'm not going to mention the group, that's not the point of this post. But I do want to say that metal detecting videos in a metal detecting forum are... well... they're TOTALLY RELEVANT. 


I must admit, I am utterly confused as to why anyone would be removed or banned from a metal detecting group for posting metal detecting videos (or metal detecting related links of any sort) so long as they're not a blatant sales pitch. Seems counter intuitive if you ask me. Keep in mind I post maybe one or two links a month (because it takes me that long to get these videos together). So It's not as if I was over-posting on any particular group. I'm not cramming my videos down anyone's throat. More curious is the fact that other "more popular" Youtubers also post to said group yet seem to be immune to this booting and blocking rule. But that's another discussion...

As an obsessed metal detectorist you can well imagine I belong to a lot of groups (some of which I've been added to without being asked). I love scrolling through my news feed filled with finds, videos, jokes and family pics. I don't mind seeing what everyone had for dinner, candids of your pets, your baby, your vacation, your smiling face. I wouldn't want to unsubscribe from ANY group. It's FACEBOOK!!!! That's what it's all about people!
Meanwhile, I work a 40+ hour work week and then spend the rest of my time digging and creating videos and fun posts for Girls Rock Metal Detecting. There is no earthly way I could possibly comment every day on every single group. When I see things in my news feed that catch my eye I like and/or comment. But the big thing moderators are failing to grasp, VIDEOS ARE A MEANS OF PARTICIPATION.

We all have various ways of expressing ourselves. I choose to design memes, pen blog posts, and produce videos. This is how I share my finds, my passion for detecting, and my creativity. I'm not out there hawking for Youtube subscribers. I'm not trying to sell anything or "make a living" off my channel. I create the videos because I like to share my experience and finds with my groups and friends. Plus it's FUN and a great way to keep a diary and documentation of my finds! It's really that simple.

So, boot me if you must. I'm going to continue to do what I do and we'll just have to agree to disagree! God DAY sir! Love ya mean it!
