I was banned today by Markos

I need to delete my profile picture and my diaries.

How can I delete my profile picture and my diaries?

It would have been possible prior to my banning. But I have not been given a reason for the banning and it is unreasonable to expect that dailykos now has barred me from accessing (for the purpose of deletion) my creative portfolio.

I have put a lot of effort into my diaries and consider a situation of being banned without reason and thus banned from taking my creative portfolio with me, unreasonable.

If this matter is not addressed soon. I will be taking legal action against dailykos.

By way of further clarification:

  1. I need to delete my profile picture.
  2. I need to delete my diaries.

Dailykos has a right to ban me from writing here, but not humiliate me by freezing access to even those parts of my creative portfolio that I own.

    Simone, per Markos' latest post, you can appeal to be reinstated in a few weeks.

    Keep in mind though, that all content on the DK site is technically owned by Kos Media. I can totally understand why you would want it removed though.

    /Not a Kos moderator, just thought I'd give you a bit of heads up because I've interacted with you in I/P before.

    1. I will not be appealing the banning.

    2. I own the right to delete my diaries. That was the case before the banning, that is the case now.

    3. The banning was a Palestinian Arab who writes the Arab sources series on the day that Palestinians launched their UN bid. Indeed, the only Arab with effective Arabic language skills on dailykos.

    4. In 2006 Kos banned a number of Palestinians in a similar manner. They did not come back nor will I. I write professionally in Arabic for commercial outlets that are as popular as dailykos in the Arab world. Dailykos was the exclusive place that I write in English.

    5. I need immediate access to delete my icon and to delete the diaries I wrote here. They are mine and I own residual rights to them.

    Ok... just thought I'd try to help a bit... hopefully everything works out.

    Best of luck, simone.

    Just for the record, this is a goddamned shame. He can still be followed on Mondoweiss and @SiDaud. (discussed here.)
