Yes Jasenka, Kelly did indeed reply yet the answer was somewhat illogical and the fact remains that this ban was unfair.

It was a studio shot with a plain background like many others in the competition. Consequently, the onus is on moderation to give loyal and long-time posters the benefit of the doubt, even when doubt is unjustly presented and illogical?

Such unfairness makes one wonder why they are bothering entering contests at all.

I also note that I am now also barred for even commenting on the page beneath Kelly's posts ...

"Sorry, you're not authorized to view this page."

So much for true democracy and freedom of opinion!

I can now oddly post and have added this response to another dissatisfied poster.

‘I am also awaiting a proper professional response. Mine was unfairly banned because Kelly Alexandra erroneously decided that it was NOT a studio shot. This was not true and I told Pixoto so. However, still I received no feasible response, which is unjust and apparently biased moderation. This is not the first time this has happened and later on (after complaints) images have been re-added. Sadly, this type of prejudicial and utterly draconian moderation creates bad feelings and makes loyal posters wonder WHY they are even bothering. Can someone in authority at Pixoto PLEASE sort this mess out, once and for all? Thank you in advance. PS. I have saved this text in case ‘someone’ decides to rapidly remove it! ‘
