I just found out that I’ve received a 30 day ban from FB because of a sarcastic meme posted nearly three years ago about people looking down the barrel of a gun to see if it is loaded. “Darwin Award” was the title.
Apparently, I was promoting self-harm and suicide.
Because I received another bot ban of thirty days for making a satirical comment about Hitler relative to certain politicians at the time two years ago, that escalated this one from 14 days to 30 days.
When was the last time I made any sociopolitical statement at all, let alone anything controversial? January 6.
Aside from there hassle of having someone post something to my profile to explain why I’m not posting kitten pictures, the bot did me a favor. I can break whatever addiction I have from this network again as well.
And yet, someone somewhere is explicitly saying they want to overthrow the government. Will they get banned? Oh hell no.
Love the absurdity of it all.
