I reported someone with the nazi eagle as his background picture. Not hate speech, according to FB.

This is a flawed idea in the first place that you cannot make happen really.

Go on and figure out how to deal with this:

The word "bad" literally means negative bad things.
You make a rule that that word can't be used cause it is negative like that.

Also you say the world 'as is bad and can't be used, it's a swear word.

And then everyone starts saying "that's badass" to mean really really good/better than most.

And this is the easy version where the bad word became a good word.
What happens when your good word starts being used to have the bad meaning for othes you wished to prevent them from speaking about?

So how do you deal? How do you enforce a rule about a word when the meaning of the world is actually retaliative to the user, And not objectively defined by you and you alone to have a singular meaning for everyone else?

What happens to the word 'pride' if the racists chit whiffs start using it in their rhetoric to mean pride in belonging to the superior race?

The rule is "when a racists uses a word to mean racists things, no one can use the word any more. That rule leads to a world of no one can say anything, becasue all words meanings are relative to the context, and so all words can be co-opted to hold negative racists meanings.

how do you enforce this rule of words meaning must become static and immutable, we must put an end  slang remixing of any word use so that we can have rules about the forbidden words.

that's ludicrous to consider.

^ it is not about a "find" feature to stop word use, it is about total contextual meaning of topic being spoken of, regardless of what words were being used to do so.

I have reported actual, physical threats to my life... and crickets from those assholes. But a meme from TWO YEARS AGO was suddenly tagged for self harm and removed.

The meme:  a scene from office space, where lumberg says "yeah we're just always going to be short staffed, so if you could work yourself to death, that would be great"

I'm currently limited from posting in groups because "Dudes can be so gross" is apparently "hate speech" but the meme I was commenting on (which said worse) isn't, so I'm getting a kick out of this post.
