Again, I don’t have much to write. But there is one thing that I keep seeing… Friends returning after a stint in “Facebook jail”.
In almost every case, it is the same: They didn’t post anything that could be contrived to be hate speech, or nudity, or whatever they were reported for, not by any stretch of the imagination. Normally it’s activists who have pointed out hate speech or injustice or some other kind of abuse.
People like conservative Christian homophobic queen and child beater, the activist mommy, get to continue posting their vile hatred with impunity. It’s baffling.
Yet people who point out the hatred, as well as rape culture, fragile masculinity, racism, and misogyny, get reported and banned. Facebook’s algorithms to determine when to take reporting seriously seems to work best when their reporting features are manipulated by exactly those whose views should be shut down. Whether or not anyone’s views should be shut down is a matter of opinion, of course, but in any case, if any should be punished, it is those people who are doing the reporting.
