Thats not really the same as shadowbanning though is it? What you've described isn't much different than you posting with few to no followers; its just being further enforced by the recommendation engine. But ultimately, hopefully, its still a reflection of the community's taste, and not the administration.

Shadowbanning is more of an explicit denial of the community taken by someone who doesn't represent the community, but rather the hosting service itself. It might align with community taste, but also might not.
