IAAL, but not that kind. So I'll never do anything about it. But if what TFA says is remotely true, other lawyers will make Wrongful Death claims against them, and will probably have a case. I imagine class action attorneys are salivating.

It is their business model--envy and social comparisons lead to a lot more shopping and a lot more clicks. But since nobody believes that you can actually fark people up like that, they can do it forever. We all have the FREEDOM to be there.

You can't do a farking thing about it. Nobody gets what they're doing. It's all AI and psychological manipulation. Congress is like, But you make a lot of money, right? We'll schedule another hearing later, maybe, while Zuckerberg laughs in their faces, behind his human mask.
