Have Seamus Gorman’s Patreon taken done and YouTube videos Demonized
Hello, I used to be a longtime fan of YouTube contact creator Seamus Gorman. I started watching his videos towards the end of high school so about 5 years I’m now 23. Recently because I made the decision to join his Patreon because I am a long time viewer I really enjoy his content and want him to be able continue making videos. I apparently didn’t really know what I was getting into and that I was making a decision I would regret so much. I am not like typical 23 year old because I have a form of autism called Asperger Syndrome and also have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Which because being on the autism spectrum and the particular form I have, I have a tendency to not pick up on others feelings very well, understand something is bothering someone unless they speak up. I also have a hard time understanding people and need a lot more clarification when it comes to rules , directions , and understanding. For example let’s say some tell me “ bring me the plate” my mind is ok which plate there’s multiple plates,different color plates, different size plates , round, square, paper , plastic , the plate on the counter or table or island. Me I would grab first plate in front of me because I was told “bring me the plate” it wasn’t specified which on you didn’t say “bring me the yellow square plate that is on the Island” , so I would bring small red plate on that on counter because the information wasn’t clear enough. So basically what happened was I ended up “breaking rules” pretty much instantaneous because they weren’t very clear and from my understanding I was still following the rules. What happened was I committed the crime of DMing the fantastic Seamus Gorman ( it was over maybe 3 day period or less and altogether it was a 5 or less messages, 1 being a link to a theory he actually used) , the rules it says “Do not Excessively DM or Spam Seamus while on discord” . Me and Seamus Gorman apparently have a very different definition of Excessive and Spam , his definition according to the moderator is don’t DM Seamus at all on discord. An issue that could of completely could of been avoided if the rules read “please don’t DM Seamus at all on discord”. Ok so moving forward didn’t DM Seamus on discord. From my understanding I did what was told but apparently I didn’t because “ please do not excessively DM or Spam Seamus on Discord/ *Do not DM Seamus at all on discord *,” apparently has same exact definition as “Do not DM Seamus anywhere on the internet”. Another issue that could been avoided if the rules stated “Do not DM Seamus anywhere on the internet,” I have zero idea why he couldn’t had then worded like very confusing. So basically me doing something completely normal ( I did this on a periodic basis before becoming a patron) , I sent DMs to his IG on a speradic basis like first one on the Patreon timeline was how I was annoyed how he reacted over something so trivial over DMs when the directions weren’t clear and explaining I have difficulty when things aren’t very clear because of autism, 2nd was a google doc with a list of theories with cited sources because earlier he was talking in the discord about having difficulty finding new theories for videos and I wanted to help.Third was some pics or artwork I made and asking if he had a P.O. Box or business office I can send something that was talked about earlier ( no, did not ask for his personal address thats weird and care that much). I wasn’t aware or notified that this was something that was bothering him nobody reached out to saw that he doesn’t want to be DMed anyone nor was it something I did on a daily basis. I wasn’t aware that was a problem until it was too late. Then last problem was Seamus felt “harassed” by social media posts I made. Of course nobody told me till after the fact. I can’t fix something that I am aware is bothering someone. I never had any ill intentions towards Seamus or intentionally meant to harass nor knew he felt this way until after the fact. I am a very goofy person that goofs around allot and also a very reasonable person. If someone “hey would mind taking this down Seamus doesn’t like this” . Then all of sudden a message from a mod who I pretty much forgot about ( you can tell how great at moderating , how invested, and just how frequent she’s on) I also believe she wrote the “ very incredibly well worded completely not confusing rules” messaged me saying I was banned with with next to no explanation. Me very confused felt very attacked attacked by Seamus Gorman and his mods because nobody told me felt this way or try to resolve the issue no communication whatsoever. I even realized the day Prior that Seamus was acting kinda cold towards me on the discord and so me knows I Issues with socializing and understanding people I messaged the mod the one actually did moderating that I didn’t forget about and asked if there was anything I did that upset Seamus. Asking if I did anything to upset him and if there’s anything I can do fix anything because he seemed mad. I never got a response or answer back. The next thing was the message saying I’m banned from the moderator I forgot about with next to no explanation who blocked me on discord before I can ask for information on what exactly I did because I don’t understand. So me being very confused looks for answers and I message the girl asking why on twitter which she never gives me an answer she blocks me. Which pretty much gives a very good illustration of how cooperative these people are. I don’t think It’s a ridiculous request for specifics on why I banned from Something. So me still really have no idea or really any understanding why I’m banned so I messaged other moderator asking why exactly I was banned and specifics which I didn’t get a response till about 8 hours or more later and the response was so incredibly vague didn’t answer my question? I also got her response about an hour reported the situation to Patreon. I didn’t respond to the mod right away because I went ahead and filed a report for discrimination because I could tell nobody listening to my side or even letting me tell my side or willing to really cooperate and that Seamus Gorman and his team didn’t care or take me serious and I had to take a more extreme approach. Then after submitting the discrimination I responded to the mod saying I contacted Patreon and filed a discrimination report with Seamus Gorman that also had her and the other mods name saying nobody is listening to me letting me tell my side nor trying to resolve the issue and make things right and even said that is the issue gets revolved I will drop the case. I still haven’t got any specifics why I was banned or straight answers from Seamus Gorman or his mods and haven’t got a response back from patreon. Not one person as of now has tried to fix things to make things right because nobody cares how I feel and the impact on my mental health it has.I feel truly hurt, hated, personally attacked, and discriminated against by Seamus Gorman and everyone envolved because at the end of the day I didn’t choose to have autism I was born with it and would love to understand things like everyone else and still have no idea what I did that was so very wrong. I’m just a girl who wants justice and stuff to be made right and of course will take this petition down if Seamus Gorman makes the situation right and makes it so I’m getting discriminated and personally attacked by him.
