Just now on HN:
"FB censored me for mentioning open source social network #Mastodon "
@humanetech Can confirm. I posted my Friendly Introduction to the Fediverse to FB and got suspended for it.
@humanetech So many on HN missing the real point: no method of appeal and no accountability. Whether the post was removed because mastodon or not, any business which doesn't have to be accountable to it's "customers" (used loosely obviously) is pretty scary.
With their kind of money, they can't hire and train some extra humans for this job? 🧐
@bhart yes, that is the interesting thing and also the reason I tooted. All these occurrences are input to regulators to hopefully bring an end to some of these malpractices. Therefore the more attention they get the better and more likely to be noticed (as we all know regulators need lotsa public pressure, or they often hang their ears to powerful lobbyist groups)
