Wow, yesterday I was just hit by Facebook with a “Your comment goes against our Community Standards on spam“.
When a friend had posted posted on Facebook with a comment about Quantum Mechanics, I had in turn responded with a comment about a series I am working on that investigates particle physics (my actual comment that is quoted in the Facebook notification in its entireity is: “Investigating particle physics: https://wordpress.com/post/singularimages.net/12593“)
The artwork (above) and article that is linked up on Facebook is a discussion about my abstract visualization of a sub-atomic realm and relates to an imaginary landscape based on Quantum Mechanics. And this is spam?? WTF? Can anyone explain to me what is ‘spam’ like about mentioning particle physics other than they have no clue as to what I am referring to, so the knee jerk, fifth grade education reaction, is to hit it wit the spam comment?? If you have no idea of what I am talking about, because you avoided the physics class (okay, any science classes including basic Biology) for a sewing class in High School, then good-golly look it up! It’s easy to find on the web! sheeeese. Or ask a secretary in the office as to what I am referring to. You know, somebody who walks while still standing upright and is not a Neanderthal.
Apparently someone in the Facebook management team does not seem to be aware or any clue about the intricacies of modern science. Wow. The theories about Quantum Mechanics are not exactly something new to science, which dates back to 1877 (No, that is not a typo! Late nineteen century stuff) sigh
Another reason I have my doubts about Facebook as a social media channel…they are not exactly the sharpest knife in the box…or perhaps I am more of a scientific renegade than I had ever envisioned…or worse yet they found photographs of me with my ‘Covid hair’, e.g. pony-tail…meanwhile Facebook does not realize that ads paid for in Rubles could be from a Russia military subversive unit…
My oh my.
