Confused, looking into the wrong end of a telescope.

Do you know how to catch an elephant? You need a telescope, a matchbox and a pair of tweezers. As soon as you see the elephant pick up the telescope and look at the elephant through the wrong end. Then using the tweezers carefully pick up the elephant and put it inside the matchbox.

Twitter thinks it can tackle a large problem by changing how it views it but the more Twitter censors its users and clamps down on so-called hate speech the more ineffective and one-sided they become. Almost anything can be flagged as offensive or disrespectful as anybody can choose to be offended by anything. Likewise, the ?recent changes that allow users to report anyone who directs hate against a race, religion, gender or orientation ?can easily be used to shut down fact-based criticism by labeling it hate. The more rules they add the bigger the problem becomes ?and the harder it becomes to police it. The problem is already insurmountable as they simply do not have enough staff to handle the volume of complaints.

This tweet for example against well-known Ben Shapiro should have resulted in the user being?suspended immediately. Read more »

Supporters of Hillary lash out at their employees and members

Yesterday Cameron wrote about the company GrubHub whose CEO Matt Maloney told employees who voted for Trump and shared his views that they should resign immediately in a memo that was sent to everyone after the election result in favour of Trump.

“That note could be construed by his employees that someone who voted for Trump could be fired,” said Horstman, who suspects other CEOs have sent similar notes. “It has a chilling effect on people’s perception of their rights.”

Facebook censors Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba

Facebook and twitter have censored and banned conservative voices many times but they usually at least pretend?that they are doing it for some other reason. Twitter said Breitbart’s journalist Milo’s critical article of the Ghostbusters movie caused hundreds of nasty troll messages, hence his complete ban. In this case, Facebook didn’t even bother to give a fake reason for their censorship of Andrew Torba, founder and CEO of the free speech platform Gab.

Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba was temporarily banned from Facebook last night after sharing a link to Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos? Dangerous Faggot tour trailer just hours before his event at Texas Tech university.
Torba documented the temporary suspension from Facebook on Twitter and Gab, relaying his confusion as to the reason of his ban and the removal of the post, which purely consisted of a link to the video and the comment, ?Wew lads? Coming to college campuses everywhere. Release the frogs.?

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 10.00.34 AM
