I think they took it down as you missed the "What have you got to lose?" slogan on it

It's a strange day when you post a Cure meme and seventeen seconds later Facebook has pulled it down like you posted pornography or something.  It was about 10:15 Saturday night and I was sitting on my laptop on Facebook, and that happened, and my wife said "Let's go to bed,"  and I just felt like I was sinking.  What is it with these social media companies censoring silly things?  It's never enough.

Imagine you your job was monitoring everything posted by 1 or 2 billion people (literally, that is the number of daily users) and removing the porn and hatred and racism, etc.

How accurate could you be?

You could have worked 'boys don't cry' in there. -20 points.

Funny you mention that.  At first I did, but then I removed it because it seemed too obvious. I was going for subtlety.

I don't click Fox news links. Which Cure / Corona virus meme was it?

Whelp, I know I just had something taken down.  God damned Facebutts.

Never mind, it's still up.  Facebutts still sucks though.

Oh come on. It's not like it was Pornography. I Wish Facebook would quit putting so much Faith in their algorithms. It would take a human less than Seventeen Seconds to realize that this was not a serious post. Of all the stupid things their algorithm does, this is near The Top.

All Trump's lies can stay up, but a joke has to come down. Ridiculous.

Yes, overall well done! I have to give you props for Strange Day. One of my favorites, but not often played.

This makes about as much sense as the time HP (I think it was HP) used Pictures of You as the theme song in an advert for their new printer designed to better print photographs.

Apparently no one in the advertising department had ever actually listened to the song.

Say what you will about the Cure, but Robert Smith is the best interview going.

Please don appropriate flame retardent suit before watching.

Rock Krenn:

That's the look of a man who is just doing it cause he's under contract or Fels he owes it to a few people at the record company who got into the party as well.
