So I’m an in-the-black commenter on io9, which is happy-making. And I used to be a grey commenter on Jezebel, which was fine. Except since the last Kinja implementation, my Jez-posted comments go beyond grey — they don’t even show up in the pending section, and I haven’t received a star or a response to anything on that site in months.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? On any other site I’d ask if it’s some sort of shadow-ban, but every time I’ve raised the possibility on the Gawker network, folks tsk and say that’s not even a thing. Not being able to comment on Jezebel isn’t the end of the world, but it would be nice to get involved every now and again.
