I Was Suspended from Facebook for my #MeToo Post

While I love your work and think it was pure genius the way you combatted your harrassment, it really isn’t plausible for Facebook to determine “intent” for every single post that breaks its rules. It’s quite rare that when you do something wrong you can have it erased by saying “that’s not what I meant”. Could you imagine the man hours spent and the refereeing that would need to happen for a social media conglomerate to treat every person like an individual, waiving some rules here, enforcing other’s there? If I go into a bar and spill a drink on a patron accidentally and get kicked out of the bar, does it really matter that it was by accident? Nope, it’s the bar’s decision be it unfair or otherwise they owe you nothing.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
