I am holding officially suspensions from both Twitter and Facebook. It has to be a new record. I covered the very weird Twitter suspension on a previous post and I must now explain Facebook.
I am a fan of Larry Correia’s book and moderate one of his fan pages in Facebook. The whole thing started with Larry (who is hated in SciFi literary circles for many alleged sins, but mostly for being successful) getting a suspension for, shit you not, insulting the people of an imaginary country. Larry ws a Krasnovian Scum abusing the peaceful goats of the brave Republic of Pineland with a waffle iron. If the names sound familiar to some, it os because they are fictional creations by the US Army for training games.
As the fan club does, we didn’t get pissed but took the whole fun idea with Larry’s suspension and made it an “official” exchange of threats between the two countries because Pineland had arrested Larry and held him for war crimes. When the ban was lifted, it was played as if Krasnovian Special Forces rescued Larry and took him back to the safety of the Motherland. Basically we did what the fascist SciFi intellectual circle hates the most: having “wrongfun.”
Unfortunately, Larry caught another suspension shortly after and we were beginning to suspect if it had to do with the goats. I did some tests and WHAM! I got nailed when the term “Goat Fucker” was used by your truly. Now, I only know it was Goat Fucker because of a very brief message that appeared in my phone showing what post was against Facebook code of conduct and was erased. It never showed again and I can’t get them to repeat it for screen cap which smart on their part making it your word against them if what they ban you for is silly.
In the meantime, we decided to start a new group in MeWe and away from the stupidity and eventual collapse of Facebook. In 24 hours, over a thousand fans have migrated and obviously is taking a bit to get used to the new format. It seems you can be Antifa and doxx your enemies or even be ISIS and have shitload of pages trying to attract followers, but using the term goat fucker is beyond the pale for Facebook.
