RYP banned from Facebook

Postby Farmdog » Thu Apr 18, 2019 11:35 pm

Just saw a post that included his permanent ban notification. Did anyone catch what caused the ban other than community standards?

He seems to be wiped cleaned from FB. Guess he'll have to sneak in on a Mr. DP alt account.

Based on Swain’s post, RYP doesn’t really know why. Fuck Facebook anyway.

Apparently it now includes Instagram and Twitter. How bad do you think this kills his brand?

Holy shit, the flag really does still exist. I thought you were kidding, Farmdog.

EDIT: And if you don't have access to Facebook and Instagram, you don't have access to ~2.5 billion people. I don't even know how you maintain a brand without those two, much less Twitter. Start making YouTube videos, I guess. Lush Cosmetics is trying to stop using social media but I bet it won't last: https://wersm.com/beauty-brand-lush-is- ... -or-is-it/

Maybe we can get a more phone friendly format around here, and then all three of us can complain about it.

Irony is that Friendlyskies showed up to crow about it, after what happened here at the BFC dropping off because she and Svizzerams (bless their hearts) got butt-hurt and commenced to banning a few folks, effectively allowing Penta to serve as their martinet.

Ah, the good old days.

Maybe RYP got thrown off FB et al because some of his followers were of the QAnon/White Power/Incel persuasions and MarkyMark Zuckerberg ain’t having it, as it hurts his “brand”.

“Branding”. I hate that fucking term and practice. It’s so 1984.

I have finally able to reset his password.

So hopefully he will be back soon, Database problems I was not in control of prevented me from doing so last time.

the facts: I posted a TED video by journalist Carol Cadwaldr on the misuse of Facebook data by Cambridge Analytica. Definitely worth a watch.

https://www.ted.com/talks/carole_cadwal ... anguage=en



I then commented that Facebook data is sold or backdoored through vendors and then disambiguated to hunt down and kill terrorists. That's a simple statement of fact but it got me permanently banned which also included Instagram which has no comments just pics. So yeah I hit a nerve. Unfortunately what I posted is true and has nothing to do with the "community standards". But it's 2019 and Facebook is over so it's time to tell the ten thousand or so people that follow and the much larger audience that pays attention to Facebook fuckery.

I have had a stalker constantly try too log in as me here so it has kept me out for quite a while.

Ok so who needs to get killed to get this forum on track.
