FB censorship is capricious and illogical. Apparently FB fact checkers prefer irrelevant climate information to that from reputable sources.
Yesterday, 2021 08 10 at 2:03 AM, Randall Stone had posted a meme, as the initial posting for a FB discussion thread:
1000 year Storm
Is proof of climate change!
Is it me or do others see something wrong here?
The first comment posted (by FB) after that initial posting stated:
[FB] See how the average temperature in your area is changing.
Explore Climate Science Info
I responded to that:
How “the average temperature in your area is changing” has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this discussion thread.
Randall Stone replied:
Walter H. Schneider that makes no sense! Who said anything about temperature in any area? Apparently who have no clue about this post nor the thread, this was the new media narrative news report headline, do it has EVERYTHING to do with the topic! Besides the fact that post is a question between wheather CYCLE and the climate change narrative, as it can’t be both, it is climate change OR it is a cycle!
Mama taught me to put Brain in gear before putting mouth in gear, in your case before putting finger in gear.
Randall Stone Wrt what your mama told you, are you seeing a different version of this discussion thread than I do?
My comment that you object to is in response to the first comment shown after your initial posting for this discussion thread, as per the appended screenshot: “See how the average temperature in your area is changing”, with a link that encourages the reader to “Explore Climate Science Info”. [The preceding quotes are from the screenshot of the FB annotation. –WHS]
When I follow that link, I am shown a graph that is being introduced with the statement, “The average annual temperature in Alberta has increased since 1950.” The indicated time interval of 70 years does not permit me to see 1000-year climate cycles, but there are many sources of information produced by credible and trusted climate researchers (including NASA) that show declining long term temperature trends for many locations and varying intervals that FB does not refer to, for example: https://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/vostok-10kd1.jpg
FB did not permit me to post that comment. The comment simply vanished. On 2021 08 11 I discovered this notification:

Apparently FB does not like objective and informative climate facts from reputable, trusted sources. It is impossible to escape the impression that FB censorship is capricious and illogical. After all, the comment that FB objects to has nothing to do with “things like false advertising, fraud and security breaches.”
At any rate, after my initial response to Randal Stone vanished, I posted another one to Randal Stone:
Randall Stone Wrt what your mama told you, my previous response to you vanished. I’ll make a shorter one: read the first response (by FB) after your initial posting.
That comment apparently escaped the FB censorship algorithms, because it is still being shown in Randall Stone’s discussion thread. As of the time of posting this blog entry, Randall Stone had not responded to that comment.
Update 2021 08 25
FB did not let me post a link to this book review:
By VEL – The Contemporary Heretic
5.0 out of 5 stars
Were Women Oppressed in the Past? A Masterpiece of Masculism from the Forgotten Forefather of the Modern Men’s Rights Movement
Reviewed in the United States on September 11, 2014»
That review is of this:
“The Legal Subjection of Men” (Dodo Press), by Ernest Belfort Bax
After trying for an hour, I still could not post those links. No notification was provided as to why I experienced the inability to post the links.
