Unkown Server Names Epyc was Banned From

Dude That's Lewd ASMR Discord Server: Banned for posting a link to a thread on 8kun about a theory that Dude That's Lewd ASMR is secretly another ASMRtist. Official reasons were linking to nazism, porn, and spreading rumors. [2020]

Note from Epyc Wynn: "Official reasons, are more often than not bullshit. In this case it was a grey area for why I was banned. The thread I found actually did contain porn, which is my fault for not checking -though from talking to the owner that clearly wasn't the actual reason I was banned. Likewise the 'nazism' accusation was just the reason given by the mod who did it -no doubt some bigotry toward 8kun's culture. The real reason I was kept banned by the owner boiled down to Dude That's Lewd ASMR being mad I discussed the theory they were some other ASMRtist I think named Soe something, even though I didn't even believe the theory -because that in itself was considered an offensive rumor. Oh well. They then blocked me before I could even respond to their accusation I was spreading negative rumors against them -you sure got that last laugh. Shame too as I am an unabashed fan of lewd and ASMR content and respected them as an ASMRtist. This is why you should never meet your heroes -or... ASMRtists."

fallenshadow's ASMR Discord Server: Was banned for complaining they easily get banned from other servers and will probably get banned in this one for so much as breathing incorrectly, as well as quoting the rule "#18 - to repeat myself, i will ban anyone i don't like. if you're banned it's because you broke a rule or you were just being a little shit. get over it. it's a discord server, not the end of the world." Ban was given within the first 5 minutes of joining without a reason being provided.

Meme Economy

  • Epyc Wynn worked as a moderator with admin-level powers in the Meme Economy Discord for approximately half a year starting late 2018. During this time he provided all of the emojis (some custom-made by Wynn), new channels and roles, increased activity in an otherwise silent server, custom announcement graphics and news, partnerships to increase the server's size, a meme challenge regularly kept up by Epyc Wynn including prizes, a bot guide graphic for users unfamiliar with the subreddit's bot, new rules, routine user feedback and improvements upon request, and was exclusively performing all work for the server during this time. The server size increased from around 200 users to more than 700 users during this time.
  • Epyc Wynn's announcements, emojis, and challenges were either discontinued or deleted completely from the server after he was banned. Challenges no longer occur and activity has plummeted, though membership has naturally increased over time to over 1,000 users due to Meme Economy's linked subreddit.
  • The Meme Economy official Discord server was deleted mid-September of 2019, after r/MemeEconomy subreddit owner u/Noerdy held a vote with the other subreddit mods with a supposedly unanimous support from the mods for its deletion, on the grounds the server was inactive

'Whirled' Sites

A Whirled site uses Whirled's open source coding, which existed inside the original site Whirled before Whirled was deleted due to a mix of legal issues with copyright violations and server hosting issues. Epyc Wynn created multiple IIUU embassies within these sites.

Synced Online: Banned due to the owner disliking criticism. Officially stated reason was "intolerant." [2018]

  • Created an IIUU embassy which gained 20+ Synced members in just a couple days, before it was deleted under the broad-stroke reason "intolerant"

Meme Insider

r/Homestuck: Main account banned after responding to a temp ban with "Suck my dick." [November, 2019]

Note from Epyc Wynn: "Normally, I strategically try to be fair and reasonable to mods/admins because I try to only get banned because the mod abused their power for stupid reasons; this is both hilarious and proves a point to those who observe or read this documentation. In this case, I was not trying to accomplish that goal, and was fed up with the censorship and intolerance of humor in the Homestuck community, so I just told them what they deserved to hear. Sometimes, it's better to just call an asshole an asshole, than it is to definitively prove to other people how bad a person is by withholding your justified insults. As ProZD once famously said to the hater commentators, "suck my dick.""

r/news: Main account, alt account #1, and alt account #2 banned due to posting lots of news links every day. Officially stated reason was spam/Link Dumping. Alt account #1 was also muted from r/news by a moderator because "... you do not get to dictate anything here," in response to a request to explicitly state in the rules how many links per day are allowed. Alt account #2 was not given a reply, upon request for a reason for the ban. [2018]

Epycwynnwasright

Image 6a: Message sent by Epyc Wynn to r/ProJared's mod team.

r/ProJared: Main account banned for suggesting ProJared's accusers should not automatically be believed at face value. Official reason was aforementioned reason. [2019]

r/Tattoos: Main account banned for saying "I'm getting a weird "I just wonder what Ganon's up to" gay meme vibe here." to this post. No reason was provided. [December, 2019]

Note from Epyc Wynn: "This was completely unexpected as a ban. Reddit is homophobic towards posts that even mention gays for fear that in itself is homophobic. Completely retarded."

IGN

File:Nude2012118.jpg

Image 6a: Crudely drawn image not made by Epyc Wynn found from the google search "bad nude drawing". Image was also later censored on this website by the overbearing prudes running the wikia-brand editor this wiki relies on; in addition to the previous censorship of it on IGN. Link to the original image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-pBb4jyI02XY/UKes4lGJWfI/AAAAAAAABW0/w0tBocuogxQ/s1600/nude2012118.jpg.

Temp banned for posting the crudely drawn nude. Officially stated reason was aforementioned reason. [2018]

  • The crudely drawn image linked above was posted in a thread by Epyc Wynn, titled "Lewd stuff that's safe enough to not be removed thread". The image was in a post by Epyc Wynn below the words "Come at me mods I'm fucking crazy.", in response to a user saying "You can post nudity in art. I've done it before. But only if it's in the context of a legit thread. I think posting nude art in this thread would get you banned. :)".
  • The site IGN's forums are notable for their numerous incredibly popular softcore porn threads which feature large amounts of real sweaty jiggling asses/breasts and niche softcore pornography.

GameSpot

Banned due to defending Louis CK and making a thread about memes. Officially stated reason was aforementioned reason. [2017]

  • After creating an alt to message all of the mods about this ban, the mods revealed the reason users cannot message the mods after having been banned is because the mods believe the users usually deserve it and reading the replies is "annoying." They then proceeded to double down on how the ban was justified despite the fact memes are not banned on GameSpot; nor are dissenting political opinions.

2chan Russia

Banned from https://2ch.hk for criticizing Putin. Official reason not provided.
