So I was conversing with a delightful chap on a Facebook post about the YouTube incident yesterday who said the blood was on squarely YouTube’s hands and that they deserved what they got, because he had a constitutional right to post his free (hate) speech on their privately owned service; a right which they were denying him.

He said that he was going to round up his buddies in the NRA and go there and show them what’s what. I helpfully pointed out that what he had just posted constituted a terrorist threat and duly reported him, urging anyone else who came across his post and construed it in the same way as I did to also use the report tools.

However, ┬áit turns out that saying you are gonna go shoot up YouTube HQ again doesn’t violate Facebook community standards. Harsh.

Mind you, I dunno what good it will do… even when the authorities have advanced warning, as they did with psycho bitch who did the shooting, they do fuck all about it. Well, not fuck all… they let her go about her daily activities, which in this case was shooting YouTube employees.

So when this happens again and the shooter is a guy called Clint, remember you read it here first…

(I think it was Clint. It might have been Cliff. Despite it not being against their community standards to kill employees of a rival tech firm, they do appear to have conveniently rewritten history – and by history, I mean my FB activity log – so I can’t find and return to the comment thread to quote it verbatim, which frankly was more disturbing than my paraphrasing above. I wish I could remember it more exactly, but I troll a lot of fucking people on social media in any given day.)
