A pattern of abuse by the vile thought police at Facebook has resulted in several time-outs! And during the imposed “social distancing” most are enduring today, imposing a suspension of connecting to friends on social media that prohibits even personal messaging, is particularly cruel and irresponsible.
I personally used, celebrated and promoted Facebook since I made the trade of personal information for what was promised to be a “better internet” in 2007. I encountered zero problems with the platform from then and through most of 2016. So a perfectly great experience for a full decade. And then, immediately after an election went the “wrong way,” the campaign of targeted harassment began. At first, a 24 hour suspension over some minor business that I’ve frankly forgotten. Then 72 hours. Then a week. And subsequently over a full year of suspension of the three years that followed. Most over comments or memes that only a lunatic could construe as “violation” of anything.
The details for each installment in a campaign of harassment by Facebook are presented here in reverse chronological order.
EPISODE 16 – JULY 3, 2020
This morning, a completely ordinary response was flagged as a “violation.”
And the imposed sentence is to be placed in “Social Media quarantine” through August 2nd! Obviously with “Social Distancing,” we are particularly dependent upon virtual connectivity, so this amounts to an amazing cruelty.
After submitting the above for review, a response was returned that the case was closed! It bears worthy of mention that just a few moments earlier on this same morning Twitter struck my account and required deleting a Tweet from May to reinstate the account.
Similar to the pattern of the block that happened on Christmas Eve (these seem to all correlate neatly to various holidays as much as to coming elections,) an alert was pushed that they “made a mistake,” and that my account did NOT violate anything. And still the account remains locked and until the same date in August!
After literally missing a friend’s funeral from an earlier episode of imposed disconnection caused by “getting grounded” by “Mother Zuckerberg,” it was adequately upsetting. And now the atomization and isolation suffered by many Americans during the severe limits imposed by the Covid, this kind of grossly negligent conduct by Facebook is quite damaging and will undoubtedly contribute to the suicide statistics already on the rise due to the other forms of “distancing.”
EPISODE 15 – FEBRUARY 13, 2020
Yet another 30 day sentence in FB Jail for the egregious offense of playfully calling someone a “dummy” in a MEME group primarily dedicated to attacking Trump. As one of precious few conservatives, I engaged in rigorous debate only to be treated to call-out posts and abuse of my profile picture by other members.Continue reading “Social Media Gulags: #FBJAIL”
