Domain Block Across All Facebook Properties :

Wow after a copious amount of ranting and even insults (that I won't take back) at @facebook automated Governance support system, it seems an actual human replied today and escalated "my case" for "manual review"

Still the novlangue language remains, it might take days, weeks, months, years, you don't know, the same reason similar to Twitter, you don't know and you are never told what particular post, word or URL actually triggered the domain block, it's just arbitrary and blind, like a dictatorships, you did something wrong against the empire and you're punished for it, but you'll never know what you actually did wrong if anything at all.

That's, "the experience" of Facebook.

I just can't wait for to be over so i can archive the Facebook page and just delete myself definitely from this platform for ever.

I'll be moving away from any "digital marketing" work in the future, so with a little bit of luck I won't have to login to Facebook ever again.

 

New domain to go around Facebook censorship of the Justice initiative OKCinfo https://bio.link/okcinfo

 

Blocked Domain @facebook and support handling


This is "James" at Facebook :

"I am following up on your case regarding blocked domain. Our internal team is still diligently working on the matter as we know that this is utterly important. We apologize for any inconvenience that may have been caused by this delay. Please know that we are working towards a viable resolution. Kindly expect a response in the next 24-48 business hours.
"

So that's it pretty much, every few days, 24-48h Facebook support adds time to the opened ticket and in the entire year this issue has been enfolding, at no point in time, the automated pseudo Names used to pose as real human beings supposedly taking care of this blanket domain ban, as replied on the actual issue at stake, the website of civil parties https://okcinfo.news being banned from the platform.

After the quote above comes a "real time" chat support that isn't real time and isn't about support.

This is automated governance at its finest with avatars posing as humans that are supposedly taking care of human arguments without ever replying even once, on the context, that's how "intelligent" Facebook support is.

If you know me you might ask, why are you even on Facebook? Great question!

I launched OKCinfo in 2015, as a platform to connect victims of abuses from the OKC-Spatz sectarian drift, the only way i could connect to all the potential victims and ex adepts of the cult was through Facebook, this is the only reason I'm still on that platform after everything that is known about Facebook complicity in destroying democracies, empowering online extremism and facilitating rogue governments targeting of activists and journalists.

I know exactly where I'm and for now, until this trial is over, we're going to keep using this toxic platform until trials are done.

Yes it's a compromise.

 

I followed all the tips listed on this page to try to unblock our domain okcinfo.news at @facebook

Let's see how long it will take to even bother with a reply.

Honestly appealing anything done by automated bad corporations like Twitter or Facebook is a deaf game, there is nobody to deal with a platform that is bigger than most governments.

That's how broken the internet is in 2021

unDear @facebook

Our website domain okcinfo.news does NOT go against community standards, let me explain why :
We, OKCinfo are a group of survivors of physical and sexual abuses that enfolded between the 70's and 2000's in a cult inspired by tibetan buddhism.

It took us 20 years to grow, leave the OKC cult, reboot our lives from scratch without the help of our parents or anyone and then find the force to go to Justice in 2016.

We created OKCinfo to denounce sexual abuses, we are part of the wider metoo movement out of religions, in this case tibetan buddhism.

By blocking our entire domain and subdomains, you are directly blocking us from communicating with the community we crafted over the last 5 years of juridical procedures.

You are blocking, the civil parties, not the predators, their website is fine on Facebook it seems, you are blocking the victims of a pedocriminal from finding the means, money among other things, to have lawyers to defend our case.

You are actively helping, abetting, a pedocriminal in his censorship of our Justice initiative.

Our website does not talk about sex, does not show nudity, does not show any of the victims actually, to protect their privacy and their identity.

if there is a post, with a word that goes against you rules, indicate the post, we will rephrase it and you will in return NOT block our entire domain.

You are behaving like 1984 nightmare, you are a corporation that use machine learning and automation to censors victims of a criminal.

You are certainly NOT helping us to connect with anyone, you are blocking us from operating normally.

You are working WITH a pedocriminal that was condemned twice by the belgian justice.

That's what you are doing and perhaps, perhaps, you should actually read this message and do something about it.

Indeed, we are opening a new juridical procedure in France, a new trial, to make sure we stop this pedocriminal, and YOU, , you are blocking us from collecting the money we need to pay our lawyers.

That's what you are doing, each and every single day that goes on with our domain blocked.

Stop being evil !

 

 

La terrifiante hégémonie des monopoles | ploum.net

Ceux d'entre vous qui suivent ce blog connaissent mon intérêt pour les problématiques liées aux monopoles de haute technologie (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc.). Ma fascination pour Monopolized vient du fait que j'ai compris que mon combat se dirigeait contre une simple conséquence anecdotique d'un paradigme beaucoup plus large : la monopolisation.

D'ailleurs, entre nous, pourquoi êtes-vous si nombreux à avoir l'intuition que "la financiarisation" de l'économie est une mauvaise chose alors qu'en soit, la finance voire même le trading ne sont que des échanges économiques entre adultes consentants ? À cause de la monopolisation de cette finance.

Viral Visualizations : How Coronavirus Skeptics Use Orthodox Data Practices to Promote Unorthodox Science Online

Controversial understandings of the coronavirus pandemic have turned data visualizations into a battleground. Defying public health officials, coronavirus skeptics on US social media spent much of 2020 creating data visualizations showing that the government's pandemic response was excessive and that the crisis was over. This paper investigates how pandemic visualizations circulated on social media, and shows that people who mistrust the scientific establishment often deploy the same rhetorics of data-driven decision-making used by experts, but to advocate for radical policy changes. Using a quantitative analysis of how visualizations spread on Twitter and an ethnographic approach to analyzing conversations about COVID data on Facebook, we document an epistemological gap that leads pro- and anti-mask groups to draw drastically different inferences from similar data. Ultimately, we argue that the deployment of COVID data visualizations reflect a deeper sociopolitical rift regarding the place of science in public life.
