Facebook admitted years ago they used AI to monitor for [selector] words ... So now the feds want direct access instead. Meh.

The current ringtone on my phone is a voicemail request from special agent Delligan (always Irish) from the Capitol Police requesting I contact him regarding a post I made this April on Facebook.

That was a post regarding flaws I saw in the Congressional baseball game tryouts. Facebook's AI flagged it. I was never notified, and it wasn't removed (facebook doesn't have my phone # Verizon gave that up I suppose.)

My threat analysis was flagged as a threat.  That could have happened on messenger too.

And that's not the end of the FB hiliarity. A couple of months ago I was suspended for posting a Memories post their own AI suggested I rehash. The word "faggot" as it might be used by a couple of queens fighting was ok when I first put that post on site. I recieved an anaemic apology a week later saying it was a 'technical flaw'.

The memories AI wasn't communicating with the badword flagging AI... and they're going to let this shit drive cars!
