We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Aggie: Now do taxes, since they're also certain. Did you read the article?
Yes, we read the article. They point to a movement of $40 billion or so in incomes (compared to the excess deaths of 100,000 Americans). That's not a gain of $40 billion, just that it moved. But it's good to have priorities.
I don't think facebook should censor anything. But think about the politics in a "free" "democracy" where the prime tool for citizens to communicate (the town square) being weaponized by one political party to try to intimidate and eliminate the opposing party. Is there a better example of our pending doom as a free country?

Except Facebook isn't a town square, but a private forum. For instance, allowing racists to spew on the forum may chase away valuable customers (advertisers). Indeed, without moderation, the forum would be overrun by penis enlargement ads, a girl from Slovenia wants to marry you, and You've already won!—just enter your bank account here to collect your winnings.
You are intentionally obtuse. All of those things and worse are there already and would never be censored. The only things censored are the inconvenient truths that expose that the left/Democrats have turned communist and are trying to destroy America. I assume you are not American or possibly an American but a communist.
