So I don't know how many of you have a airsoft page on Instagram, but lately the lovely moderators of Instagram have been taking down basically everything related to airsoft and firearms in general as soon as its reported. They have been banning pages rapidly as well. Even if you haven't violated their guidelines, a "scary" "gun" will be removed. If it has certain firearm related hash tags it is removed as soon as its posted and your account is flagged. They don't even care as there is no consequences or alternative media that wouldn't do the same thing that they are doing. It used to be they only took down a post if you offer services or are giving away/selling items. But early in 2020 it seems they have made their agenda clear unfortunately and have started removing basically anything they feel like. Meanwhile thousands of disgusting Onlyfan hogs are pushing their Instagram recruitment pages to lure people, whom mostly are under-age to their onlyfan pages for profits. There are also hundreds of private uncensored gore pages remain untouched by Instagram. I've reported many of these pages and I get a message back from Instagram saying they reviewed and approved their content. Like literally what the heck. This is getting ridiculous. I don't like the feeling the sport is going to be out-casted and treated as some evil that cant even be seen by the public. That doesn't help public view of the sport in the long run when lawmakers try to ban it in the state level again. Obviously the solution is to go to forums but we have to post our content on imgur or other platforms then have it embedded here. Which is a weakness when they start taking that stuff down too. This is just incredibly frustrating. I just want a place where I can see and communicate with all the other techs in the world like I do on Instagram. It's nice to be able to learn from others and to learn about new products. Most techs dont even use forums anymore. Even if they used to be on Airsoft Mechanics Forum or here.
