2. They said they were taking down

any posts to links they think are not truthful about the corona virus. Could this be one? Once they target you to delete a link, they delete all posts of yours with links. There doesn't seem to be any reason for this.

3. A few months ago I got banned from doing Amazon reviews.

I did a few snarky reviews of Scooter Libby’s book and a couple Left Behind books years ago, but the tiny number of reviews I have done in more recent times have all been completely void of politics and entirely about the merits of the product in question. Wouldn’t surprise me if there are some data mining operations going on.

5. Mine was flagged and it had nothing to do with CV. I posted a legit link.

The link I posted was about the FL legislature and it was reputable. I didn’t lie about the contents of the link either.

So, yeah, Facebook is going to flag anything that isn't palatable to them.

11. Are they flagging Trump's and his people's coronavirus stuff?

If not then I would suspect his people have influenced or even demanded this process from Facebook.

Trump likely doesn't want anything but his bullshit published......

For example, he's got most all Rethug governors in lockstep with him.

34. Could it be this? A bug in Facebook's anti-spam system temporarily put a lid on some coronavirus new

Facebook Inc.’s overzealous spam filter temporarily put a lid on some coronavirus links.

A bug in its News Feed prevented URLs from legitimate sources such as USA Today and BuzzFeed from being shared as posts or comments Tuesday. Many Facebook FB, +2.33% members like Lana Rushing, who runs a public-relations company in Los Angeles, said she received a warning from Facebook after attempting to share news posts on the pandemic from USA Today and NBC’s Today Show.

“All of the sudden, I began receiving notifications from Facebook for posts that I shared, saying they violated community guidelines, marking them as spam,” Rushing told MarketWatch in a Facebook message Tuesday. “When I disputed these reports, Facebook overrode my request and began closing the cases.”

The notifications referred to posts previously shared with Rushing’s network of Facebook friends, she said. This marks the first time Rushing said she was warned of violating the social network’s community standards on spam in the 13 years she’s been a member.

37. Heard on cbs news this morning: Facebook vp: They're trying to stop bad information

and so have probably over-done it with the attack bots. I'd rather have it that way than allow bad info out there.
