    I want Instagram banned because I have many accounts be pedofiles keep on following me and I can’t delete my accounts because I messed my Apple ID up

    I got one of those “activity will be limited” bans that pops up each time I enter my account, but I can comment, like, follow, unfollow and add to my story just fine? The only thing that’s different is I can’t see anybody else’s stories, even live ones. I haven’t gained many new followers or likes, and I haven’t done any serial liking, commenting or following/unfollowing. It might be tags, but I’m not sure. Anyone got any advice?

    I’m still on a commenting ban. I’ve tried all of the above tips and have no idea when this ban will be lifted.

    I used to get instagram bans regularly, but since I have started entering differently I haven’t had a ban in over a year. Now I only upload personal pictures to my page and use stories for sharing competitions. On multi tag competitions I only enter if I really want the item and tag two people in separate comments then make a note of who I have tagged and the page and come back to it a while later and do the same repeating this until the competition ends. I also don’t enter more than 6 every half hour. It seems to working for now 🙂

    There may also be a political factor. On Facebook- instagrams owner, there was a great purge on anyone voting Trump. This has eased a little.. but having the wrong opinions is still dangerous.

    Never had bans to recently and now most days I either cannot comment or add to story. I’ve posted to my grid ok but still then cannot comment on posts. I’m spacing my comments out so not replying one after another but annoying when promoters ask to tag 3 in separate comments.
    Good read on tips and will try and alter my patterns

    I think Di’s article is correct, but only most of the time. I also think the algorithm is becoming more broken – machine learning gone wrong . I say that because it’s not achieving it’s objectives: scammers are operating in abundance, yet genuine users (and I’ve seen a number of businesses commenting on this) are prevented from interacting. It feels discriminatory in the way it is excluding people. I can relate to Sam’s comment – most of my early blocks were breaching the limits Di describes. Recently this has not been the case. I logged on after a few days, liked a picture of a jumper and tried to share a charity post to my story and bam, banned for a week. Maybe the algorithm doesn’t like charity work either

    I do all of the above and always have done. And still get banned, but only lately. Post a pic on my grid or story. Comment on a post without a tag. Then tag, and bam I’m banned.
