    As I noted, the first article WarDamn posted about Twitter suspending people for posting that they hoped Trump died of COVID expressly said that Facebook was not doing so as long as you didn’t tag Trump in it.

    That article said any public figure, not just Trump.

    Facebook’s rules differ slightly: users can express that they wish death upon someone as long as that person is a public figure and they are not tagged in the post.
    Do you have evidence that Facebook applied this rule inconsistently based on viewpoint?

    Using anecdata as I abhor, some of my aforementioned liberal friends got temporary bans when DT had covid; one for saying they hoped he succumbed but one for merely saying it would be karma if that happened.

    This story is now getting a lot of buzz on the internet - Fox requires proof of vaccination

    Very interesting


    Group members have incorporated a range of coded language to mask their discussions, many of which perpetuate debunked theories about the vaccines. “Danced” or “drank beer” mean “got the vaccine.” References to “Pfizer” generally use the terms “pizza” or “Pizza King,” and Moderna is referred to as “Moana.” Users generally play around with unofficial language about dancing to create more coded language.

    “He believes that by being around those who have danced the glitter caused the shingles reactivation,” the group member wrote. The glitter, in this case, refers to “vaccine shedding,” a false theory among anti-vaccine activists that claims people who have been vaccinated are somehow “shedding” their vaccine onto the unvaccinated, and causing them to become sick with a litany of illnesses.


    The group’s members wear Hawaiian shirts and patches depicting igloos because some of the largest boogaloo Facebook groups changed their names to “Big Luau” and “Big Igloo” in advance of the group’s expulsion from Facebook.


    Who is the 'pizza king'? The secret language being used by anti-vaccine groups to skirt detection
