I subscribe to (naming just one example) "One Million Nasty Women and some Bad Hombres Resisting T***p." Farcebook shoved a campaign add for the Flim Flam Führer in my face.

And how much garbage about the Kardashians do i have to hide before Farcebook figures out that I don't give a flying fark about the Kardashians?

Just shut your account and go do something else.
Or don't.  Whatever.

And if they don't, then it's totally fine if Facebook turns them into domestic terrorists.

Better to just shut down Facebook entirely. It has no useful purpose.

I rarely get on Facebook, especially recently because it's like the politics tab:  All assholes posting political shiat all the time.   Well, almost all.

When I post, it's something non-political.   "Hey, I did this ham radio thing", or "Hey, I shot in the primitive biathlon", or "Hey, here's me cooking some weird dish", that sort of thing.  I think the most political thing I've ever posted on Facebook is this:

"If all you ever post is political shiat, you're a political shiat".

Even that is even-handed because it doesn't favor one side or the other.

Speech on Facebook or Twitter should fall under the yelling fire in a theater clause.

(I'm going with a not-protected stance, not trying to get people yelling about fake fires)

The people who get sucked into the conspiracy theory and/or extremist circles aren't the ones complaining.

If section 230 is removed, Fark and every other website with comments that aren't pre-moderated will have to be shut down.
