When corporations think you've gone too far, it's like our last hope.  That's how far we've come.   (._. )

Actually all companies should. Facebook allows for so many obvious foreign (usually Chinese) scammers on their website. They will usually post video/pictures of a product that they just rip from the actual manufacturers website.

They then usually ship a far inferior product (like if they are advertising an RC boat they will ship a much cheaper one without the advertised features, ie NICD rather than lithium batteries, etc.) if they bother to ship anything at all (I did fall for this once, but was able to get paypal to return my money). It is all very obvious and facebook doesn't care. I've taken to assuming that anything advertised on facebook is in fact a scam. In fact just today they had adds up for a very expensive custom star wars grill. It was very obvious it is a scam (the real one costs 1200 bucks, they were advertising it for 200 w/free shipping). If I was a business I wouldn't want to be associated with the taint of all the scammers that operate ads with impunity on that site.

This is what happens when governments aren't responsive with proper and effective legislation, the public has to take over.

Corporations have the most money. They can add even more pressure to grass-roots boycotts because, since they are rich, other companies (and the gov) will listen to them.

I personally will never knowingly do business with any right-wing supporting company, ever.

Facebook was always a terrible place to advertise.  It's mostly old people and bots. They don't buy anything.

Speak for yourself. Lucky for me, just before the lockdown, I loaded up with a six month supply of essential oils.
