Oh man. I laughed my ass off when the notification popped up. I’ve been almost entirely off Facebook for a month. I went back on to signal boost because of the cancel culture attack on Baen. I lasted less than 24 hours before catching a 30 day ban for “bullying.”
Damned right. My only regret is that I didn’t bully them harder while I had the chance.
I’m glad though. Facebook is soul sucking garbage. I’m telling you guys, after going cold turkey for a month and then jumping back into the thick of something controversial, the nastiness of that place becomes abundantly clear. I checked the threads of people sharing my blog post, and that place is the perfect environment for snide morons to drive by and guilt shame their “friends”. There’s no meat to what they say. It’s just vapid sound-byte level hot takes from low information dipshits designed to cow people into line. (and these “friends” are usually meaningless nobodies who would be safely ignored in your real life, but people grant them importance online). Facebook is designed to make you put up with their shit, and when you fight back they report you. I ended up in a dozen separate arguments in one afternoon. It was only a matter of time before one of them snitched me out to the bots.
Groovy. Now I’ve got to get back to work. Unlike the wannabes and has-beens I fight with I’ve actually got lots of fans waiting to read my books.
