How to get unshadowbanned?

I’m not confident anyone will see this. Github has shadowbanned my account immediately upon creation. When I create an issue, it is visible to me, but nobody else. Sending a direct link to the issue to a friend, they get a 404 error. Github has refused to give me any reason for this ban. Shadowbanning is appalling in any case, but worse still to a brand new account without any reputation. I contacted Github, but have not received any response.

have you tried to login in another browser or a private tab?

When I sign in using a private tab, or a different browser, I am still shadowbanned. I do not see how it could help to change my own browser, when the problem I have is that Github censors my posts from everyone else’s browser.

Hey @anon098034545636, Thanks for being here! I suggest getting in contact with private support as these sorts of account-related issues cannot be resolved via the Community forum.
