Would you guys do me a favor and share this, because I sure can’t. 😀
So I got banned from Facebook again, shocker. I believe this is my 7th or 8th 30 day ban. But this is the first time I got the option to appeal to the not at all Orwellian sounding “Oversight Board”. As you can see, I was totally polite and honest in my responses.
Facebook is a time suck garbage site that exists as the propaganda arm of the DNC/Corpo-Uni-Party, to spy on you to sell to advertisers, and to steal everyone’s personal information. After bamboozling all the content creators to go over there to build “community” they now hold them hostage because the content creators are scared to leave because they’ll take a financial hit (The Oatmeal’s got a great cartoon about it).
But I’ve got a pretty good system going. Come back from a ban, plug some stuff, remind people to sign up for my newsletter, piss off a statist, and get banned for another month. I’m thinking that maybe this response to the Oversight Board might earn me a perma-ban and then I can actually get some work done. 😀
I’m not joking about the hostage thing though. It’s fucking malicious and scummy. It was a multi-year bait and switch while everybody directed all their fans over and put most of their media presence in one convenient place that promised to be “community” but which turned out to be a sleazy trap of social engineering for profit. And now they all feel stuck helping a company that actively lies and hides truth behind propagandist “fact checks” (remember when fact checks said Hunter Biden’s laptop was fake, there was zero chance Covid came from a lab, and the idea of election fraud was just wacky conspiracy theories? Pepperidge Farm remembers)
When you do bail out completely (last time I did that for 3 months) you do actually take a financial hit because it’s still the place that reaches the most customers (even if they are only showing it to like 10% of the people who WANT to follow you). “Nice business you’ve got going here, be a real shame if something violated our community standards. You’d better pay up so we might maybe show it to another 10% of the people who want to follow you, if we feel like it.” So it’s a really awful way to try and reach customers.
So seriously guys, if you follow me over there and want to know about my new books, swag, products, or deals, sign up for the mailing list and make sure it’s not going to your spam folder, because the clock is ticking. I’m kinda shocked I’m not perma-banned yet.
