    Some of you who were friends with me on Facebook may notice I’m currently not there, I voluntarily deactivated my account(possibly indefinitely) because FB sent me a notification saying they were thinking about deleting it, no reason given, then within 48 hours I was unable to post to pages or groups, it seems to be connected two this https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/jan/29/facebook-banned-me-because-i-am-leftwing-i-am-not-the-only-one but it’s baffling, I haven’t been a super hardcore leftbooker, I’m probably the tamest in my leftbook circle.

    I have been lucky to have avoided being in Facebook Jail, though I do know a few people who have fallen victim to the various moderator banhammers at various times.  I seem to remember it being over fairly trivial stuff some of the time.  Some people just need to gain a sense of humour :)

    facebook has become highly political and censors anything it doesn’t agree with for their political reasons. its going to be a hasbeen soon I recon because of it. too big for their boots, and think they can get away with anything they want and people will still kiss their arses.

    & the thing is There are heaps of Proud Boys still on there & your average boomer grandma is sharing memes from neo-nazi sources without a second thought, I am hard left yes but I’m not extreme, it’s not like I was sharing ACAB, Eat the rich, Guilotine your landlord type stuff.  But I have been open about the fact that I, & others I know reported Brenton Tarrant(without naming him on FB) to the National Security Hotline in 2016 yet post Christchurch Australian authorities had claimed to be unaware of him. Also I have been vocal about the 2018 branch stacking of NSW Young Nationals by members of the neo-nazi group Antipodean Resistance(Without naming the organisation on FB), I’ve been vocal that one of their members(who still has a FB account btw) got himself on the campaign staff for my town’s state member & was responsible for the posting of neo-nazi posters around town over a six month period.

    And I thought most of the right-wing fuckwittery went to Parler?  Must have made a return when Amazon shut it down.

    The Qanonces & the overtly Fascist went to Parler but the Proud Boys & a lot of the Reclaimers, Avi Yemini, Ralph Verminara etc are still right there on Facebook.

    Ross “The Skull” May is still on Facebook & he’s an oldschool bonehead going back to the 70s.

    So I reactivated facebook because I needed it to get into a bunch of other stuff for which my sessions had expired, had only been active less than 12 hours & the fuckery started all over again.

    Yeah, I’m sure shadowbanning is a thing, even if they deny it.  I’m just not sure why they’d be doing it in your case…

    That kinda sucks.  You use any other social media at all?

    Finally back, for over a week the appeal button didn’t work, finally worked last night, took them 24 hours to decide that I’m not a bot.
