Well, this is an interesting fiasco. Recently Facebook updated their rules for threats and violent content, saying that in 'certain situations' and against 'certain groups' it was deemed fine. Here are some quotes from the rules saying as such: Do not post threats where threat is defined as: Fortunately they've now updated these rules and removed the dodgy language: https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards/recentupdates/all_updates/ But still, it's kinda worrying that no one saw the potential issues involved in outright saying 'hey, it's fine to threaten violence against people if they're criminals/suspected of such'. In fact, given they outright said it was fine if it was 'established by media reports', that basically said they were supporting the idea of 'trial by media/public opinion', a very dangerous precedent given situations like the Covington kids one where the actions of some group were misrepresented or misunderstood based on questionable evidence. It also pretty much encouraged vigilante behaviour, which is something that shouldn't be tolerated in a civil society, and proved without a doubt that enforcement of Facebook's rules was very much situational at best. Still, what are your thoughts on it? Do you agree with their policy? Disagree with it?
