Back in Facebook jail


Recommended Posts

I just got blocked on FB for 30 days this time! I accidentally included dollar signs when someone asked about the price of ammo on a gun group. I told them about some .45 acp I just bought over the last two days. I don't know if it was the group itself or Facebook! They took it as I was selling something! So ridiculous!:angry:

Yep! I know that but the algorithms they use are ridiculous. It assumed that I was selling the ammo when clearly said I just BOUGHT it!

Understood.

 

I believe the majority of those that are "Jailed" are accused, tried and sentenced by a computer scanning for key words.  

 

I haven't post on Fal$e Book since the election coup d'état

The kicker is you never know just what thing, or what combination of things, will get you banned.  You can post the same thing you posted a year ago and BOOM!  you are now "violating community standards." With no way to appeal.

And yet Facebook allowed a convicted drug dealer to post long videos of the all nude dancers helping him celebrate his release from prison.....It stayed up for three days before being blocked.....

Well it appears that they have now suddenly lifted my jail sentence, maybe because I disputed it? Maybe they have the Los Angeles DA working on this??

I got a reprimand from Amazon a couple of months ago. My crime? Explaining to some that asked a question about Pachmayr grips how to tell a round butt from a square butt  :blink:

Disputing often works. You were probably tagged by a computer program, not a person.

 

I don't do FB, but know of a friend who posted a pic of a new firearm, specifically including the text "Not For Sale."

 

Off to FB jail within minutes, the computer program simply acted on the last two words of the text ("For Sale"). When disputed, a human saw the reality and reversed the action.

Q: did you dispute the offense?

These are done by automated code nannies... I have had a few overturned by disputing, which forces a human to interpret the offense.
All of which is no longer a concern.
As a direct consequence of censorship and bans, I closed all my personal and business accounts on Facebook, and walked away.

Yes I did. All I did wrong was use dollar signs describing some ammo I bought. The auto bully must have thought I was selling which is NOT allowed. If a human then checked it out they could clearly see I was saying that I had just BOUGHT the ammo.

 

Whew, glad I got out of that Facebook jail, it stinks and there's cockroaches!:P
