Siren Kimmie Banned!!!

I was posting links to my latest video recently, as ya do when you make videos; and I noticed I was no longer subscribed to a particular group. In other words, I was KICKED OFF!!! This isn't the first time some ban-hammer-happy admin has decided the way I choose to share my passion for metal detecting did not fit into their idea of participation. Clearly they felt my video links were irrelevant and even a detriment to their community, so I was unceremoniously ejected.

I must confess, 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). 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 my links on any particular group. And I'm not cramming my videos down anyone's throat. More curious is the fact that other Youtubers post links to the group yet seem to be immune from this blacklisting. What gives?

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... even if it is not on topic. It's Facebook...a place to share and be social.

Meanwhile with the number of hours I work, my other responsibilities, and my spare time spent digging and creating videos, there is no earthly way I could possibly comment every day in every single group. Instead, when I see things in my news feed which interest me, I like and/or comment. And I share my videos with each group as A MEANS OF PARTICIPATION.

The thing is, we all have various ways of expressing ourselves. I choose to 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!

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!
