Facebook banned popular ‘Illinois Gun Owners Together’ group for the high crime of? Being gun owners. Of course FB says that it was because of their cover photo (of a canon?), the group’s description (that they were gun owners who supported the 2A?), and address the posts that supposedly violate Facebook’s “community standards.” -- without of course the specific examples to know how to comply with that.

Facebook is 3 things: bad interface, bad management, and biased policies. I want a social network that gives me control of what I see and share -- both to my friends and to advertisers. I realize they need to make a buck, and my information is their product, but the point is you can still give users the illusions of control. But Zuckerberg seems to have falling into the egocentric pit that many young billionaires do, they think because they timed things well, and worked hard, and got lucky that they're smarter than everyone else. This makes them arrogant, less mature, and slower to grow than the average human: Dunning-Kruger, inflated by being surrounded by yes-men.
