I think he was never not going to. I saw where someone mentioned this bogus poll and for a second I thought about making an account just to "vote". Heston's polls have more integrity.

Supposedly a bunch of companies said that if he was allowed back on, they would immediately cancel their advertising. Let's see if they follow thru.

I certainly hope so. Of course the pillow guy will probably be back too. I expect he'll soon let anyone who was banned as a result of January 6 and related activities .

It's like a whole bunch of people quit drinking to lose weight or something like that and then realize how much booze was slowly sucking the joy from their life.

I don't think so, any more than how any other addiction slowly seizes control over a person. The platform—and other social media sites—are engineered to encourage addiction and we should think of it in that manner.
