Facebook’s Abuse Reporting Moderation System IS Broken ( SUCKS! )


November 3th, Facebook blocked me for “7 days,” for a comment I made on Utah Clean Politics post.  I wrote about it here.

Blocked for this???

Are Facebook censors as illiterate as whiny Republicans?

Can someone find a violation of Facebook’s ‘Community Standards in the above comment?

I think Facebook’s moderation algorithm might have a limited vocabulary or just a really serious problem.

20 days later, I am still blocked.

    All’s I can think is that “Face-book” has screeners that divert comments if they contain particular words. Words like, ‘commie’, and republican.

    Really, nothing else comes to mind.

    They’re thinking about unleashing robotic soldiers who can kill without direct human input.

    Bot on bot action I got no problem with. It’s the collateral wedding party or ten – pink spray or splat – I have very little tolerance of.

    Bot on bot.

    Why not? As long as we have the advantage.

    Otherwise; No deal!

    It’s a Facebook world, we just live in it. I have never visited Facebook’s site, but I have a Facebook profile because you need one to comment on some political blogs now. 🙁

    Has anyone been able to call FB? I know in the Utah open FB group we haven’t had many problems since we “closed” the group . (meaning only those in the group could see posts and report.)

    Probably blocked you because they know who you are, and what you stand for, in other words, they have got your number for sure,

    Feels good being censored huh? couldn’t happen to a more deserving person

    Karma or something like that
