As I noted yesterday twitter has once again upheld my appeal of their 3rd lockdown of me over the Benford’s law post that they’ve been auto locking people over for a week but I noticed something interesting about my latest appeal and reversal.
Take a look at the time stamps on getting my appeal and it being approved.
Here is the stamp of my appeal being reieved
and here is the time stamp of their apology
I submit and suggest that this is now the process at twitter concerning this link
- Falsely flag the Benford law’s post to repress it and lock out those who send it out & accuse them falsely of distributing “intimate images without consent” Not only does it discourage the tweet or retweet of the material but it allows them to mark said material unavailable during this time.
- When the lock down period is over offer to let them back in if they delete the tweet (thus acknowledging “guilt” and making their account for violating rules giving them a cause to later ban such a person)
- if they refuse and appeal set up an auto system to say they made an “error” Sort of like an auto correct.
- Return to #1 if you tweet it again
This process involves a series of falsehoods & dishonorable actions by the crew at twitter.
- Falsely flagging said link as some type of intimate image without consent
- Falsely (and automatically) accusing users in writing of spreading intimate images without consent.
- Falsely flagging people who delete said tweets as having broken said rules
- Falsely claiming to review appeals
- Falsely claiming (in writing) that they have reviewed said appeal and that all of this has been an “error”.
- And Falsely apologizing for said “error” with the full intention of repeating it if you dare send out that tweet again.
Now if I expected better from these folks I might be disappointed, after all there is a reason why so many have left this platform or have gone elsewhere, and some have asked why I don’t to the same. Why do I bother to keep fighting this fight here?
My answer is for the same reason I haven’t moved out of Massachusetts. Someone has to make the fight and while with all of this on automatic it doesn’t even amount to the pinprick in the Elephant’s hide I am able to illustrate to the avg person their perfidy and point out that there is no reason to suppose that they will not turn this on them if they so choose.
It’s a small flag I grant you but I’ll carry it.
Update: Welcome Whatfinger readers, take a look around at both my stuff and the stuff from my magnificent seven writers and don’t miss today’s piece: “Mr. Ness, everybody knows where the booze is. The problem isn’t finding it, the problem is who wants to cross Capone.”
