After 6 months of my Instagram account being deleted, I took a second shot at it.

Apparently I'm flagged as being a dangerous individual. That's a new one.

Anyone care to answer why me using a FOSS Instagram client that prevents Instagram from accessing my information without my permission makes me the dangerous one?

It's like if you locked your front door and a thief tried to call the cops on you for it.

Check engine lights are so vague. Imagine if the human nervous system was just like "Yup, something's wrong, but it could either be a mosquito bite or a fractured skull"
