Where do I address my complaints to the moderators?

Post by mercuried » 2018-11-29 03:24am

I am so annoyed at the moderators. They disapprove my posts and the reason are the following:
1. Reason: The reported message is likely a plant from a sleeper spambot..

2. Reason: The reported message is likely a plant from a sleeper spambot..

First of all, would a sleeper spambot be able to post this??
Second, what constitutes a spam anyway? It's an unrelated post from the original topic. I never posted a spammy post.

At this rate, people will just move to FB groups, Reddit, or Discord. Forums are slowly dropping like flies because of moderators like these who give no consideration to the users of the forum!

That was me, and I am an Administrator, responsible for keeping spambots and trolls away from the board, among other duties. I gave due consideration to a new user with no posts making one-line contributions to month-old threads, and decided not to approve them.

Welcome to the board!

Publically criticizing the Mods vs simply PMing someone first is a great way to start things off, Congrats! :lol:

Gotta love concern trolls.

You just cited three other platforms which all have built in moderator capabilities whom are allowed to do almost anything they want, all of which support automatic moderation by bots, and all of which have final oversight by opaque corporate governance against which no appeal is possible while they seek profits based on your personal information and use habits.

You sure love totalitarianism.

Heh. Facebook can in theory do all those things, but I can tell you from experience that Facebook moderation is worth jack and shit in practice. I have many times reported other posters (usually for inciting/glorifying political violence). Invariably, I got a reply saying that the post in question did not violate Facebook's standards, and that was that. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

I don't know, maybe Facebook only censors intelligent speech.

Facebook moderates speech that gets it in trouble or reduces engagment. That's it. Nothing hard to understand about it.

Try making even the most remotely feminist comment on FaceFuck, and see how quickly you land in Facebook jail.

Whereas the most rabid red pillers, who bitch the most about being in jail, no matter how many times they're reported, get away with being misogynistic swine on von Zuckerberg's platform.

Yeah, its pretty clear at this point that Facebook is deeply in bed with the far Right. There's a reason I don't post on it any more.

I hardly post in it, because I only have a few days' freedom between 30 day stretches in Zuckertraz.

Facebook's algorithms have decided that you don't matter since they can't sufficiently monetize your information & activities. Those same algorithms have also done a cost-benefit analysis on whether acting on your reports will make or cost Facesucker money, and decided against you. Yes, you are a number, and that's all they care about.
