Spectator columnist (Chadwick Moore) got banned for speaking to others on FB like he does in real life. Then for linking his own articles published in the Spectator on Facebook. Horribly offensive things like "Rednecks are the least racist people in America" and explaining why with research by Thomas Sowell and historian Colin Woodard. Or the latest, "The death of the bulldyke" -- which while the headline is a bit edgy, the article itself is not-offensive and appreciated defense of the working class lesbians who are being overshadowed by trans women. In all these cases Facebooks appeal process is a bad joke that offers no consistency or transparency and is slower than the DMV when their computers are down. His amusing attempts to figure out his tormentors identity and limits is somewhat amusing -- but the definition of allowing some groups to use some words, but not for him, is exactly the type of bigotry that Facebook pretends to be defending against. If they got irony, they'd fix this. But then again, if they could see themselves in the mirror, they would have banned themsleves.

🗒️ NOTE:
Some of my favorite friends and family happen to be gay. I have neither a special preference nor aversion based on someone's kink. The problem is that context and intent matter on what something means: and people creating unpublished rules by ignoring context, is never going to be a reasonable or fair system for limiting communication. Heck, what kind of social network can you really be, when you can't be yourself on it?
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.
