Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook won't ban Holocaust deniers because they deserve 'a voice' - NY Daily News

I'd call this motherfucker a kapo, but a lot of the kapos were blackmailed into it with threats against their families and such. This motherfucker has no fucking excuse. I think I hate him almost as much as Trump. OK, that's not possible, but I still really fucking hate him.

WTF? Holocaust deniers, like most racists, don't deserve to have a voice. They have a right to freedom of speech, but Facebook is not required to give them a platform.

I understand that viewpoint, but I'm almost to the point of believing that they do not deserve free speech. Don't get me wrong: under the 1A, they're entitled to it, but I'm not sure they should be. World events are converting me to Karl Popper's views on the paradox of tolerance: that is, the continued existence of tolerance depends on not tolerating expressions of intolerance. Holocaust denial fits easily within those bounds.

Quote:
Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. — In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument; they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive, and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols. We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.
I may or may not have more to say about this later - I'm posting from my phone on a work break right now.

Anyway:

Congratulations, Mr. President: Zuckerberg Secretly Called Trump After The Election

He truly is awful. At this point I'm not sure Facebook is any less evil than Uber. If there's a difference, you probably have to use a microscope to see it.

Facebook has asked big U.S. banks to share customer data so it can offer services: WSJ - MarketWatch

Jesus Christ. Remember they tried to get your health records, too. They're not asking you, they're doing this stuff behind the scenes.

Just seriously.

I do understand that Facebook has got its tentacles up in people's lives, and that massive centralized social media is destroying others means of communications. Forums like this are dying, you can't barely use your phone or email, and it's just easier. But Jesus, can you think of anyone LESS qualified to replicate the complex, intemingled social structures that humans have built up over history than someone like Mark Zuckerberg? This guy went from being a spoiled rich child to an Ivy League creep directly to a massive media mogul. This guy has never had to interview for a job, he's never been harassed or discriminated against, he's never had to worry about paying his bills or getting insurance or renting an apartment. He's a dumb, coddled child with a $10 million annual security budget, and he's smashing down incredibly valuable social conventions that he doesn't understand and that have never affected him.

Is this the guy you really really want to be in charge of the very fabric of your society? Seriously?

Listen to Jarron Lanier if you don't want to listen to me.

Get a blog. Start posting here instead of Facebook. (Somebody find out where VM lives and go to his house and make him give us mod status like he said.) Make your social arrangements through email or text or something instead of Facebook. Make your friends and family go there to make arrangements and see pictures of your kids.

I can't do it. I can't not be on Facebook any harder than I already am.

I started posting here more recently when I deleted Facebook and reddit from my phone. I still have plenty of presence on Facebook through second-party apps and second-party people, but not being on the consuming end has really improved my quality of life.

The reason I deleted them in the first place was all the animosity and targeted bullshit and clickbait and propaganda had me constantly on edge and I needed to cut it out. I come here, I get quality stuff actually curated by quality people, and when I’m caught up, I’m caught up. I can go listen to a podcast. I text directly with my mom, my sister, a ton of other people now that I think of it. I get all the baby pictures and vacation photos. I email with my grandma and other extended family. Am I getting nostalgic for the days of old-fashioned electronic letter writing?

Anyway, I love y’all. The internet sucks. The world sucks. Take care of your mental health.

I don't know if I'm immune to all that crap on Facebook or if I'm just blissfully unaware.

I pretty much use it to see what other people are doing in their lives, sharing what's going on with mine and lament over how much I miss City of Heroes

And then sometimes you text somebody a cute story about how your dog likes to stuff her mouth full of food, and then yak it all back up on the couch so she can eat it at her leisure. And sometimes you include a photo of said dog in the middle of said act, and that person never even responds! :sadcheer:

Maybe the FOSS SMS app on their jailbreaked chumby-arduino phone didn't know how to deal with the MMS. So sad.

I still have my Facebook account but 99% of the times I use it is when it reminds me to say "Happy Birthday" to someone or there is a post in my family's private group. I disabled the "platform" a while back so no remote sites can use it for authentication and whatever, and I wonder if I could disable everything except my family's private group. Unfortunately it's pretty much the only connection I have to my family except the very rare text or email.

Radiolab has an interesting episode just released re: Facebook on how they decide what speech and pictures/videos are screened, removed, etc.
Fun fact: there's about 16,000 people working for Facebook (mostly not in the US) with NDAs in place and PTSD from having to screen flagged content; system slowly being automated (AIs now learning to remove gory content, for example).

Facebook Fueled Anti-Refugee Attacks in Germany, New Research Suggests

Quote:
German internet infrastructure tends to be localized, making outages isolated but common. Sure enough, whenever internet access went down in an area with high Facebook use, attacks on refugees dropped significantly.

Facebook sends man animation featuring cartoon characters dancing on his mother's grave / Boing Boing

They will 'sincerely' apologize and explain what everyone knows--that it's an automated process and they didn't, like, intentionally do that.

(Those are some grotesquely ugly graphics, too. I'd be a little offended in any context.)
