Epoxy on both your houses (i.e., we’re stuck with this mess).

I don’t know if it was all due to an algorithm. I was suspended for 24 hours a few weeks ago, which only lasted a few minutes as I won my appeal and received an apology. This time, I never heard anything back.
I do believe that if I was initially suspended due to an algorithm, or even a quick report from someone disliking the cartoon, that an actual breathing human being backed up the decision.

The question here is: Was it the “death to Israel,” the “death to Palestine,” or mere “the death to?”
