More Facebook Censorship!

 Shortly after I posted A Guest Post From Jack Seney, on Big Tech Censorship and My Thought's on Jack Seney's Guest Post, I went to my FB 'notifications'  and found this regarding the FishEaters group of which I'm the administrator: ''An admin or moderator will have to review all member posts until 29 Apr. This is because many people in your group recently violated, or were in one or more groups that went against, our Community Standards. Learn more'.

I messaged Jack to let him know what was going on. What follows is the conversation we had.

What are they claiming was "violated"?!

Make them address it specifically! 👍

Oh, they never bother to explain that. In fact, in my case, it was difficult, if not impossible, to even determine which post or posts had violated their standards.

Are they making any specific threats is there an "or else -" involved? Otherwise it is just cheap harassment!

Not yet. If something else violates their 'standards' then it will escalate. If I'm lucky, it will be a warning. However, it's possible that they'll just take the group down completely. It's happened to other groups I'm im involved in.

Wow, completely at random. 😠😾 But my understanding is that groups can be opened any time by anyone! I'm told you can have one group closed and open another the same day without being bothered for months 😸😄

Oh, that happened in one case. A group called Conservative Traditionalism was taken down. A group called The Traditional Conservative was opened. It now has a mirror group on MeWe as well, just in case.

Also, note this: This is because many people in your group recently .... were in one or more groups that went against, our Community Standards.'

In other words, the violations may not have even taken place in the FishEaters group.

And the "Community Standards" are poorly defined at best, of course, I would guess it amounts to "whatever we feel like saying is against our community standards" 😸😄

You got that right!

That's the game, pretty much, we move around and do our "free speech"-ifying as we can 😸😄

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
