Gia Milinovich (@giagia) was a successful science-communication professional on British TV in her own right well before she married Prof. Brian Cox (@drbriancox). She has written about her experience of becoming an "invisible wife" once Brian Cox became famous. What then adds insult to injury is when flamers and BlockBot team members such as Sarah Brown (@auntysarah) attempted to browbeat Brian Cox into remonstrating with his own wife merely for her uttering uncontroversial opinions over Twitter. A truly massive irony when those running the BlockBot claim to be in favour of feminism.

What were those opinions she wrote on Twitter that would lead to her being blacklisted? The pseudonymous BlockBot team member @vex0rian made the official report that appears central to the BlockBot 'report' on Gia Milinovich. Unbelievably, @vex0rian's report on Milinovich preliminary to having her blacklisted cites Gia Milinovich as objecting to racism.

@JudeInLondon (who on Twitter calls herself "Congolesa Rice", a clumsy, inane and somewhat racist misappropriation of the real Condoleezza Rice's actual name) tweeted:
"Are most UKIP donors *actually* jewish or do they just happen to have prominent donors that are jewish?"

Gia Milinovich (@giagia) objected to the obvious racism in rather mild terms; she tweeted:
"This is a self-described 'human rights campaigner'. Nice. https://twitter.com/judeinlondon/sta...45909330251776 #notnice"

Despite the very obvious racism of @judeinlondon's tweet, despite the rather mild tenor of Gia Milinovich's remark on it, it was for that that Gia Milinovich was blacklisted. Then more was cited by BlockBot team members in support of blacklisting her; specifically, the fact that Gia Milinovich retweeted a rather accurate and uncontroversial summation of PTSD made by @Joshua_St_John (who changed his Twitter handle to this from a previous @JoshuaDamnIt, which is now in use by someone else unconnected). He himself is not blacklisted.


The BlockBot team lack all and any credibility. This kind of blacklisting, being disguised as it is by appeals to stopping trolls and so on on Twitter, is deeply dishonest and pernicious. Screen-capture and tweet-embedding of the relevant entries are shown below for proof.
