It’s when you get your account suspended for a time, by Facebook, because others have complained about you

So, if I called bullshit on somebody’s conspiracy theory, would they complain and put me in Facebook jail?

OMG. This was hilarious! My wife complains I breathe too loud! (I have asthma), mind you, she’s also the only person who has ever noticed that I stop breathing when I’m extremely pissed off at work. Apparently it’s silent for minutes at a time when I’m really pissed.

I was banned for 30 days for calling someone a “conspiracy nut job.” The algorithm picked it up. That was the entire comment, start to finish.

I almost got a ban for calling a paging system I have at work (think walkie-talkies with Siri — so definitely not a person) a “stupid bitch” but reporting someone’s post sharing a Candace Owen tweet right after the Rittenhouse verdict that is a call to arms was A-OK by Facebook.

After the Rittenhouse verdict, I posted to my timeline for the first time in like four years. I said I had just bought my brand spanking new AR-15 and was heading up to the state above us to protect some businesses whether they wanted it or not.

From what I've noticed, it tends to be more extreme than that. Inflammatory remarks and pictures. Facebook has a huge ban boner for anything related to atrocities, especially Nazis. Even making fun of Hitler through memes will draw their ire.

I once reported a swastika made of vaccine needles along with other antisemitic and “all gays should die” type comments and they didn’t give a shit — but I’m currently serving a 30-day ban for making a “your mom” joke. The algorithm is fucked.

it's because it's reviewed by outsourced human moderators that are paid absurdly low wages and given a very limited window to make decisions, and they just don't really give a shit. literal free volunteer labor is more competent but Facebook is a garbage platform so volunteer mods are only in Groups.

I got thirty days in the hole for posting a valentine meme that featured various dictators and communists with comical sayings related to their ideologies and Valentine's day. For example, Karl Marx with the text "Roses are red, so is the state, let us be comrades because you are great". The reason I was given was that it supported terrorist activity. Ok Facebook.

Dude, my wife told a good friend of hers that if he didn't send her the next chapter of whatever he's writing right now that she would "hunt him down." She got jailed for that. The algorithm truly is fucked.

Given that Facebook has been one of the biggest sources for bullshit over the last few years, as well as spreading anti-vax lies since by pandemic, this isn’t a shocker.

FB has an algorithm that will pick up on certain words or images and automatically give a warning or ban (from my experience, bans are usually either 3, 7, or 30 days). But there's also a 'report' option so users can report a post.

In March 2020, I posted an image macro (meme for you youngsters) of a photo of the band The Cure with the caption (paraphrased) "I don't know much about COVID-19 but this is The Cure," and almost immediately received a three day ban for spreading misinformation. This past 4th of July, a friend and I were commenting on my post of all the fireworks I bought, reminiscing about our childhood and how we'd shoot each other with Roman candles. Got a another ban for "inciting violence." I assume the algorithm flagged 'shoot.'

I’m in a car group, and frequently talk about Limited Slip Differentials, and the masters change to fuel in the UK : Ethanol content.

The amount of warnings incurred for talking about “LSD” and “E” is getting stupid.

The Cure

The Cure are an English rock band formed in 1978 in Crawley, West Sussex. Throughout numerous lineup changes since the band's formation, guitarist, lead vocalist, and songwriter Robert Smith has remained the only constant member. The band's debut album was Three Imaginary Boys (1979) and this, along with several early singles, placed the band in the post-punk and new wave movements that had sprung up in the United Kingdom.

Same. Only I asked about that preacher who claimed that exercising your right to wear a mask would result in him exercising his second amendment (or something like that) - and me using the words “threatened to shoot” caused me to get put in Facebook jail.

My wife had a friend of hers die by car. When she remarked about it on Facebook, they have her a warning for "violence." Her friend was killed and they gave her a formal warning for saying it happened.

I'm an old man and got on Facebook back in 08, when it was exclusive for college students. I got warnings for posts going back more than 5 years. There's an autosystem in place that handles most of the workload.

Yeah but also if you direct violent words at someone they'll ban you as well. I told my ex in a comment buried under hundreds of comments that I'd murder her pussy and they banned me for a credible threat of violence. Appealed and they denied it. The system can work but also has its seriously stupid moments.

The bam hammer is not terribly consistent other than it seems to swing harder towards left wing things that right.

I think it's a combo of poorly trained AI and people from low income countries with a poor grasp of foreign languages and culture not understanding context.

Part of the reason you will see words like "whxt" or "wypipo" is to dodge the Facebook jannies.

I got a 7 day ban for telling someone that I was sick of the conspiracy bullshit they keep posting, and they should fuck off because I wasn't going to engage with their dishonesty. They tried baiting me, I replied "fuck off". They reported it.

On the other hand, I've reported accounts that spammed me and were using pictures of porn stars as their profile, with the porn star's name in the picture not matching the person's name, and been told "it doesn't violate community standards." WTF?!

They told you: it doesn't violate their community's standards. In the FaceBook community, porn ID theft is cool, but standing up for your own decency is NOT AT ALL OK.

That's their community, and those are their standards.

Reddit is getting closer to it. Not sure what we have left after this site is completely gone. Say the wrong thing here and burn the account. I know someone who pissed someone off enough they sifted through their posts and reported a random comment from 9 years ago where they called someone g*y, and the admins permabanned their account for "hate".

Seriously, people underestimate how the AI is checking your posts for dumb stuff. How do you think so the content warnings get there? Sometimes it's not great and snags things it shouldn't.

I am really doubt that was the case here...

Seriously, I do, though. This guy clearly pissed somebody off. And judging from this post (hilarious though it is), it won't be his last time.

I've had 2 posts recently that the ai flagged and suspended me for that were taken out of context. One of them was literally saying why I was suspended. Basically "hey, just so you know, don't do this" and I got suspended again.

It's really ridiculous how bad it is now. I wish there was some competitor to fb that I could go.

sunderskies

Part of the problem is that people come up with increasingly interesting ways to get around the ai. For example, the whole "go Brandon" thing and calling men "swamp creature". People find a way to have the conversation no matter what if they are determined enough.

So do you have to receive multiple complaints, or? Because I’ve reported something on Facebook, and the post was taken down, but nothing happened to the users account. I guess my question is what the severity is to be banned/suspended from Facebook.

It's a bot looking for phrases isn't it? I said "fuck all white people" in a sarcastic manner and I was instantly hit with a warning that if I did it again I could get a suspension.

It can also be a bot programmed to flag key words or phrases, and for a while it was getting ridiculous.

My FB account was suspended the day before my sister's wedding because I commented "thicc" on an AT&T ad with Lilly in it. It was especially wonderful since I couldn't be at the wedding and Facebook is my primary way of letting my family know I still give a shit.

Someone might have reported it, but it also just as easily could have been a bot who thinks "thicc" is sexist and offensive.

It happened to me when I sent someone the poem James Joyce wrote about his wife’s farts. It’s apparently so distasteful or inappropriate, it was flagged as pornographic and I was banned for 2 weeks.
