Dudes claiming to be the intellectual and technical elite claim that social problems such as content moderation are hard.

Problems that so many old institutions have solved. That so many organizations have put forward strategies for.

Yes, content moderation isn't as easy as adding a new button somewhere, and yes, not having a business model makes the investments necessary hard.

But it's also way simpler that it's often claimed to be.

"It's hard" is often shorthand for "I don't want to do it".

@tante most often, though, it is because it is actually hard.
