    Facebook and Censorship

    Three years ago I shared a BBC article about the mistreatment of an indigenous forest people in Indonesia. I added a comment to this post because their Government whilst destroying their forest homes and way of life also forced them to renounce their traditional beliefs and adopt a new religion. My post was taken down as it apparently infringed FBís Community Standards Policy. This week I was given a 3 day messaging ban on FB with no explanation and no right of appeal. So I have no idea on this occasion which of their various policies I breached if I even did. Did I share something else they didnít like or just click on it or did someone report one of my posts? Who knows? As I am in lockdown FB is one if not the main contacts I have with the outside world so I am feeling particularly aggrieved. Anyone else have a beef with FB?

    A year ago, every time I posted negative comments about IDF brutality perpetrated against Palestinian ****agers I got shut down and banned.

    Of course it is an Israeli/Jewish enterprise so how it can possibly allow freedom of speech is beyond me. Corbyn was crucified pre-General Election on FB and the result is we now have an overly privileged, useless TWA-t running our country into the ground.

    The trouble is Balan, FAKE NEWS and real news are so intertwined, who knows what to believe anymore?

    BT --trust nobody, just evaluate and make up your own mind. It isn't just FAKE NEWS that we are subjected to because we are also subjected to manipulation as far as what is probably real news. Nobody just reports the news, fake or otherwise, the reporter always seems to want to include their personal opinon which many people will take as being part of the news.

    I have no idea how any of the social media platforms do their regulation, however, I see that TPOUS has been brought to book again by Twitter! No doubt he would be the first to moan if anything was 'leaked' about anything and yet he uses a source which can be hacked by anyone with the 'nous'

    It wasn’t fake news that got me into trouble. I was protesting against the outrageous treatment of a minority endangered community by their own Government and this was ruled to have breached FB’s Community Standards. How galling is that?! The second time I just got a temporary restriction imposed without disclosing any grounds or allowing any appeal. I think that must infringe rules of natural justice. Hey but what do I know.

    The Facebook police are very arbitrary outwood and IMHO are a very real danger to free speech.

    Corbyn was crucified because of what he is no other reason than that.

    As for Boris personally I think heís doing a good job, would anyone else have ever encountered what he has in his first 6 months of tenure I doubt it.

    Back to Corbyn anyway , if he was in charge under a labour regime the country would be bust now , because you wouldnít have got the payouts under a labour government ( theyíd have all been alright obviously - but not us I fear.

    Above that as Iíve posted many times before what exactly would anyone else have done any differently to what has happend.

    None and I repeat none as far as I know Of our politicians are experts in pandemic , germ warfare , mystery virus so why do keep
    Insisting that Boris is a Tót and not fit to run the country, why donít you accept that itís a national - world crisis outside Bolton and no one Knows or knew what to do for the best , some took a different approach and itís worked better for them - doesnít mean it would have here.

    So why question is why canít you just get behind the man for once and give him a bit of credit , heís not a Ira sympathiser or Hamas supporter, or someone who let Jimmy Saville go back to allegedly molesting and buggering dead bodies and young girls when they had the evidence to convict and stop him.

    Maybe he needs to get really down and dirty before youíll look the side heís on , personally for me Iíll hold judgement on him running the country until heís had a fair chance to do it , not in a national crisis.
