Last October I wrote about the increasing number of local citizens experiencing Facebook jail” as a result of any words of criticism for Ocean View School District Trustee President Gina Tarvin.
“The list just keeps growing. Huntington Beach and local-area citizens are being suspended from using their Facebook accounts, “banned” as it were, for simply criticizing the Ocean View School District and in particular, board president Gina Clayton Tarvin. I’ve seen many of the offending comments and they are not profane, threatening, libelous or anything even approaching dangerous. Yet thanks to seemingly dedicated brigade of speech police that would appear to understand how to efficiently make Facebook abuse reports, voices are being silenced. For presenting an opposing point of view.
Nobody’s quite sure precisely how it is being executed, but how could they be? Everything regarding Facebook reporting is anonymous. More likely than not, this is an example of “mobbing,” whereby a group of people dedicated to a single agenda start “swarm reporting” to Facebook at the same moment to create the illusion that something is seriously wrong. It’s not as a Facebook have someone sitting there in every case reading the comments. Rather, according to reports, they use an algorithm which simply measures level of complaints.”
As of today, the list continues to grow-
I’e reached out to Tarvin for comment on this alarming situation – she has refused to answer any questions about this.
