This is one of key GrapheneOS community members doing it, and r/PrivacyGuides has the same moderation team as r/privacytoolsio before, and the main moderator of r/privacy is also same.
Has anyone seen this kind of behaviour in overall privacy community?

Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
I love how they say “if Google was really malicious, …” as if this isn’t a basically established fact lmao
I don’t really like you, theanonymousjoker, but I despise madaidan and mikay as well, I followed your discussions in the age of the controversy between graphene/copper in nogoolag group (when it was still a semi-decent and not “conspirational” telegram group) and anyone of you were awful. BUT I think your privacy guide make sense to anyone who can’t or don’t want to buy a Google phone, and to anyone who don’t want or can’t root his phone. It was a good, democrat guide, and I appreciated his content, even if not his tone. This attack on reddit is awful, you don’t deserve this hate and I hope you are alright. Stay strong
Thank you for recognising the fundamental issue here. People are even trying to hurt me even on this post here, and we must atleast identify and call out this level of hatred and toxicity. It is not healthy for communities at all.
Hahaha thanks for sharing man. Got a good laugh out of it. Maybe stop posting cringe
You’re an asshole sometimes, and I’ve disagreed with you many times; but that doesn’t mean I will tolerate others harassing you and attacking you publicly this way.
I dont see any harassment.
This is my comment: https://teddit.net/r/PrivacyGuides/comments/rxf02a/theanonymousjoker_false_privacy_prophet/hrjr2c2/
And OP dropped a downvote already. They are brigading onto anyone at the moment. They act like a cult, manipulating votes as well for every single comment.
We don’t know if downvote was OP’s, and to call downvoting “vote manipulation” ignores the reason why they downvote: because they’re toxic.
No, I meant every comment suddenly gets -3 or so votes in 5 minutes if it does not support them.
Because people disagree with you?
We can be angry, we can disagree, but few things we must retain are morality, honesty, dignity and shame. We must be civil and not be literal hounds towards each other, and definitely not do personal targeting like this.
Dignity? You resort to calling people racist and homophobic seemingly out of nowhere.
My question still stands. Where is the racism? All I see is a bunch of out of context screenshots
Excuse me, what context do you need to practice and justify racism and homophobia? Lack of humanity?
I see transphobia… the image where they call someone an “it” after what appears to be them correcting pronouns… No racism or homophobia however.
Yeah my bad, sometimes I am unable to process this stuff on such a detailed level. That sticker however is something.
Hi @email@example.com. The best thing you can do in this case is not feed the troll. It’s pointless and not productive to engage a discussion with an individual whose intentions are pretty clear. For the sake of your time and your mental health, the best thing you can do now is block him. Don’t give him attention. If you want to understand better who is this individual just look at the post made by B0risGrishenko on Reddit as well as his answers and last but not least the moderatons comments under the OP post. If you any doubts, don’t hesistate to write me on matrix. @tessaiga:matrix.org.
It seems you are supporting citation-less slander of people, and projecting that onto others. You are not talking in good faith, instead you have had an agenda for months at this point.
This is your final warning here, @Lunacy@lemmy.ml. If you engage in gaslighting others or participating in anyone’s slander, you will be banned.
If you want to ban me, go ahead. I have no problem with that.
https://lemmy.ml/post/140015/comment/105195. Look at you. Why are you posting this image? Its pointless because commerscamOS has never been affiliated with GrapheneOS. You’re accusing communities to be racist without a proof, you’re accusing a me to follow some sort of agenda without any proff. That’s you. You always do that. At this point I’m genuinely amused, nothing more nothing less.
You have been banned from spite, grapheneOS, r/privacy r/privacytoolsio r/Firefox and now r/privacyguides for your content and your behavior. That’s all. No other reasons. And in my opinion you’re going to be banned elsewhere most likely, because at some point people get tired of people acting like you. The first person reply under your post said that you’re an asshole. Literally. That’s actual sad and explain all in my opinion.
I don’t know why @firstname.lastname@example.org and @email@example.com have not banned you already. You behavior is so evident. You are also the same person which months ago was defining GrapheneOS users as "WORTHLESS DESPICABLE RAT. and now you’re pretending to be the nice guy of the situation by telling people to be the “better person”. Again, that’s explain all.
If you dislike a user, or dislike what he writes, you can simply block him from your account. Site bans are for people who violate the rules, and I dont think thats the case here. If it is, you should report the specific posts/comments which violate the rules.
comment chain because you delete comments
I have not been banned from r/Firefox, so you can stop lying.
Addressing the rest of your lies, all of those subreddits and groups promote closed source OSes for privacy and security, and are harmful to privacy seekers. They also have a thing in common – they let flourish vile proponents that trash Linux and FOSS projects daily.
The reason admins have not banned me here is because they recognise people like me and people like you. You lie and you stand for obnoxious, toxic statements and even lie here:
You are a liar. A pure person of hatred, it seems. Everybody knows I do not use phrases like that. And you used 5-7 sockpuppets to downvote my comment and upvote yours.
I do not think this much lies and false slander should be allowed in a community here that is otherwise non toxic and peaceful. Hence you may enjoy your ban, and any upcoming GrapheneOS sockpuppet brigading will be dealt with accordingly as well.
slander is by definition false and a lie
Good attitudes to differences of opinion above, you guys. Important to remember there’s living breathing, flawed, talented humans behind most usernames here. @AnonymousJoker, is there really much point to the main post though, I mean it hurts to be singled out and targeted, especially by a group, but is there really much chance that this post does not spiral into a tit-for-tat shitfest that just perpetuates the issue?
There is clearly nothing I have apart from community support I can muster, so that these horrible people can be exposed. I have never seen this kind of witch hunt in privacy community in my life.
These people specialise in sockpuppet trolling and spread disinformation about privacy, and are playing a reverse blame/troll kind of game with me. Even r/PrivacyGuides moderators support it, since the post is up, they are replying in comments, and are avoiding my.modmail request to take it down.
PrivacyClowns are amateurs.
Skip them and follow me, you learn much more within 1 week or money back… kek. I do not censor legit submissions, never have, and never will.
Mirrored your post 🤗.
Hey please do not slander them as PrivacyC****s. Even if the person against you is rude, toxic and shameless, you should have shame, dignity and pride. Always be the bigger, better person.
It is not really slandering. If you check their statements regarding developers, they deserve much worse. If I would leak what they said on Reddit and via Reddit DM, that would be slandering, even if it is true.
Edit… really… 😂
Ah yes, I’m a proud member of PrivacyCunts
Slanderous sockpuppet temporary accounts are not allowed.
3 hour old account
Seriously, avoid becoming toxic. Just state evidence and expose bad people for their bad doings. Everyone automatically understands.
You got busted that you lied. How is that slander if is true.
Why not address this, create another post answer and respond to it. I was not involved in all of this and do not care much about this at all, my opinion on PCIO, GrapheneOS is well-known.
I have not checked all points but OP has some valid points, if you like it or not.
Blocked you know, you can do the same. But do not call me someone who slander others, this is seriously not the case, I at worst mock them, but this is well-known.
That is all I am going to say here.
I meant as general advice. Also, OP is manipulating the discourse here. Their original point was to claim my guide was utterly useless for privacy, because I call out GrapheneOS community a lot, and that even Android’s VPN Lockdown killswitch does not work. When questioned, they started wiggling away. https://old.reddit.com/r/PrivacyGuides/comments/rxf02a/theanonymousjoker_false_privacy_prophet/hrik6hp?context=30
They kept lying throughout before https://np.reddit.com/comments/rohq46/comment/hq3ugme?context=300 and then made up this post.
OP lied about r/Firefox ban in a way because they never showed what went on. r/Firefox mod called me a conspiracy theorist for calling Cloudflare DNS for DoH bad for Firefox. We had a lot of exchange and nextbern misused his moderator authority.___
My smartphone guide is on r/privatelife, and here on c/privatelife as well. I hope this gets required attention.
