Islamism and Facebook’s Existential Crisis

Although I am not going to give formal engineering or quality management consulting advice in an opinion column, I do remember a seminar on ISO 9001:2015’s new provision for “Actions to address risks and opportunities” that warned how social networking can demolish a business’ reputation in days or even hours. I saw this in action when a department store, which I will not name because it was falsely accused in a news article (a credible source as opposed to “somebody’s blog”) of removing Israeli goods from its shelves. The store’s Facebook page was instantly flooded with negative posts and negative ratings, but the news source later retracted the accusation.

    With every American Stinker article I become less impressed. That entire essay is predicated on the belief that rules and responsibility should apply equally to the right and left. If you’re on the right, you know that isn’t going to happen; if you’re on the left, you don’t want it to happen.

    • Hmmm.. hard to argue that;)

      You know, I’m getting a strange feeling the more I read my favourite conservative websites these days.

    If what is written is true, the racist Black CEO of Sam’s Club should be fired shortly.

      It is true for the USA’s predominant legal framework. I am not certain about Canada. Certainly, I think online moderation sucks since surveillance by government for serious shit is prevalent. Everything else is just kowtowing to snowflake sensibilities. To boot, most human “moderators” are too inconsistent to be of any use legally in a court of law (check the stats). By and large, moderation by humans is just a big huge potential legal imbroglio best avoided by automation, irritating though automated moderation can be.
