Facebook’s Easily Fooled Blocking System #FweeBwian
As I wrote yesterday, those who tell the truth about beautiful, pluralistic, embattled but fundamentally good Israel are outnumbered. Just as it ever was, just as when Jewish David faced Goliath or the combined Arab armies in 1948 or ’67, we’re outnumbered.
The other side, the ones who call themselves “human rights” activists are absolutely desperate to silence us. This is their weapon of choice. Deep down the lies and hatred that infect them cause them such internal pain they lash out and try to stop us speaking.
So over on Facebook, these barbarian hordes can easily muster enough clicks to push automatic algorithms to institute a ban.
Remember: you can still express your support by signing the petition here.
That just happened to me.
Somebody allegedly called “Cathy Castro” appeared to be threatening me and wrote in a comment:
“Somebody is watching YOU, BrianJohn Thomas, aka Brian of London, aka Edgar Davidson”
I responded to her:
“Cathy Castro I live in Israel. You’re a genius. Are you trying to find someone come and hurt me or my family? Just curious.”
A few minutes later this happens:
So I questioned if someone was really threatening me and I get blocked. By Facebook’s “Community Standards”.
I recorded a video about a page earlier this year, my video even got featured on one of Israel’s top TV news magazine programs, Hatzinor Lila. Remember those are the same “Community Standards” that allows the administrators of the page originally known as “Truth about Jews” and now known as “Jewish Ritual Murder” to operate freely. Facebook gives the administrators the tools to block access to Israelis and some other countries according to hate speech laws but it’s visible the USA. Here’s a screen shot taken moments ago, most recent post May 25th.
This, apparently, doesn’t violate Facebook’s “Community Standards”.
BTW if you don’t understand where the cry “Fwee Bwian” comes from….
