Yesterday I got a warning from Parler. No, not Facebook, or Twitter, Parler. Over what? I was surprised. I shared yesterday’s news about Sununu and Donchess. Sununu is cutting spending and taxes as a form of COVID19 mandate relief, he says. The Nashua Mayor, a Democrat, says that means he’ll have to raise taxes. Democrats don’t cut spending, and how did that get me flagged?
When I shared it I pulled a quote out of the text of the closing paragraph: “Democrats will continue to bleed you until your city is dead and even the New Hampshire Advantage can’t save it.”
Here’s the whole paragraph.
Nashua needs to clean its political house. Mayor, Alderman, School Board, all of it. Your Democrat majority city government cares not one bit about your circumstances and it will continue to bleed you until your city is dead and even the New Hampshire Advantage can’t save it.
I checked the detailed rules for getting flagged and as far as I can tell, I did not violate a thing. I appealed the warning and got nowhere. I guess the words bleed and dead got them all triggered.
Someone must have complained, and now I have points against me for pointing out a fact of economics in a Democrat-run municipality.
Seven violations? Sixteen Violations? Seven points. One violation – none of this makes any damn sense to me. I know it’s all crap.
Parler has a feedback feature. I gave them some. A very polite WTF?
I don’t expect to get any relief there but y’all should be warned. Parler is back and it’s better but then it’s not. It either has trolls that are flagging content when the content does not violate the (for lack of a better word) community standards, or they have flawed algorithms looking for words and not meanings.
