The Good News: All you subscribers here may be seeing more posts from me in the weeks ahead.
Why? The Bad News: I have been kicked off Facebook for 30 days for violating its mysterious “community standards.” Take a look at this:
Can you read the comment? It followed an exchange with me applauding the U.S. diplomatic boycott of the winter Olympics, but not a total boycott, and getting pushback from some who disagreed.
My comment says, “A full boycott WOULD hurt our athletes. If we can go to Hitler’s Olympics, we can go to China’s.”
The nature of the violation is not explained. I was clearly disparaging Hitler, and implying China is in the same class.
Is Facebook saying China is not in that general class? Who is the offended party here — Hitler? China?
Well, I have protested to Facebook — as I did for previous 7-day suspensions — but I doubt it will do much good.
A bunch of asshats, they are.
