    That video was down for the entire Trump administration four-year Leni Riefenstahl wet dream whilst other users on the site did not get flagged for openly celebrated beating up Muslims, desecrating Jewish cemeteries, and believing in some bullshit about sex-trafficking in pizza joints.

    As usual, Zuck's doin' a bang-up job undermining democracy and common sense, like he's the Seth MacFarlane of Silicon Valley.

      Ironically, yesterday I got prompted to take a survey on my feelings about whether Facebook ("When you say Facebook, are you thinking about Facebook the company, or Facebook the app?") cares about its users.

      At one point I was asked to identify which aspect of Facebook made me feel least like it cared about its users.

      I actually needed a break for drink for that one, but I settled on "flagging and removal of problem posts," and when asked to elaborate, I wrote... more or less what you just said there, but not half as well, unfortunatelyl.

    It's pretty impressive that their backlog even lasts this long, I imagine their appeal resolution system has been rewritten at least 3 times since then. On the plus side, it's likely that the company that requested the original takedown doesn't exist anymore.

    • BHN says:

      Rather than replacing the previous systems they probably just added new ones so the old ones are chugging away in the background doing their thing, completing and closing out appeals in a mere thousand or two days. Their desks were just moved into a closet down in the basement.

    Every time I see your addition to the instagram logo I'm reminded of this.

    I looked through your previouslies and couldn't find it so I'm putting it here on the remote chance you haven't seen it.
