ID-related posts deleted from friendly Facebook pages as spam

Mark ZuckerbergI (O’Leary for News) just discovered this fact because, acting on a tip, I was trying to find out whether mine was one of the millions of recently hacked accounts.

I haven’t found that out yet but here is a list of posts Facebook removed from various groups’ Facebook pages as spam:

Sociologist Steve Fuller: How ID Foxes Can Beat the Darwinian Lions Fuller clearly finds the ID foxes more interesting and sympathetic figures than the Darwinian lions: “The lion rules by focused shows of force, as opposed to the fox’s diverse displays of cunning.”

On the absurdity of “naturalism” (and the equal absurdity of its censorship of science and education)
kairosfocus: It is clearly time to re-think the imposition, agit prop in support and censorship.

Can we choose not to believe in free will? Peter Gooding: Ultimately, whether free will exists or not may depend on your definition. If you wish to deny its existence, you should do so responsibly by first defining the concepts clearly. And be aware that this may affect your life a lot more than you think.

Must we find water to be sure there is alien life?

Looking for “life as we do not know it”? In theory, something similar to what we call life might exist by depending on some substance other than water. But the question then becomes, what makes the search for the entity a science-based endeavour? A scientific search must begin with and stick to a rationale. So we would need to develop a model for non-water-based life before we know what to look for. <[We removed this post because it looks like spam and doesn’t follow our Community Standards.

Back in October 28, 2017, I am also informed, Facebook removed “Geneticist defends possible Adam and Eve in Nature: Ecology and Evolution Against theistic evolutionists who insist that a single human pair is not biologically…”  But visibility trails off at that point and I do not have further details just now.

So if you are interested, didn’t hear about it, and use Facebook for news, take note about what the Moral Genius and his company consider spam.

By the way, Google’s Sundar Pichai and his crew (whose Google+ is now doomed, due to a hack) are surprisingly active in politics:

The basis of the social media companies’ wealth (and free services) is gathering users’ data, which it harvests to target ads. It doesn’t help their position that Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently stood up the US Senate. Some Googlers seem to feel that their firm should nonetheless branch out into politics and Google is currently cozy with massive censorship in China.

The public is left wondering why a firm that can’t secure its own data has such grand ambitions anyway. More.

We are told that these moral geniuses have a message for the world? I shouldn’t wonder if the world has a message for them sometime soon.

I am certainly beginning to see George Gilder’s point in Life after Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy.

If we want open communications, we really cannot afford all this social righteousness.

Note: I had started getting bumf and hassles from Facebook while posting links to pages where sponsors want me to post. But I only discovered this correspondence this morning.

Google boss quits, writes satirical novel The novel is said to be so far-fetched that it captures the environment accurately. Recently, we’ve looked at a number of complaints about the way Silicon Valley is acquiring too much power over people’s lives, at home and abroad, and reaching deep into the compulsory school system as well. A former employee decided to respond creatively.

    News:

    Not trying to defend Faceplant but…..

    You might be being abused by trolls that report you as spam. Facebooks default approach is to believe any such report without human intervention until it gets some kind of pushback and finally comes to a human’s attention.

    Otherwise known as the “Heckler’s veto.”

    Latemarch at 1, you could well be right. But the Heckler’s veto is not a civil society tactic, for reasons the above makes clear.

    And those who would presume to lecture the world…

    How could anyone think dependence on the FAANGS++ was ever a good idea? And yes, independence is a bit inconvenient.

    How does one send comments or complaints on or to Facebook? I have not done an exhaustive search, but I was unable to see anything obvious. If every conservative (or even fair minded) user complained, they might get a stronger message. I will keep looking.

    The message they need is competition.

    Coming at it from another angle, are you really sure that your FB posts are worth the trouble and tsurris?

    The main reason why FB is fading has nothing to do with censorship or hacking. Ordinary advertisers are realizing that social media isn’t a cost-effective way of advertising. If FB isn’t cost-effective for selling shoes, maybe it isn’t cost-effective for selling ideas either.
