    As you know, our Facebook page has basically been suspended because Facebook is blocking our blogs from appearing in people’s newsfeeds:

    We don’t know why this has happened, but I’m sure it has something to do with trolls mass reporting our page for offensive content. And even though we haven’t violated any of the terms and conditions we agreed upon when signing up for Facebook, we’ve still been shut down. Now we have a better idea why though:

    “They are the army of workers who man Facebook’s front line, tasked with removing offensive and terror-related material from the internet giant’s site. But a Mail on Sunday investigation has discovered the multi-billion pound social networking site employs hundreds of young Filipinos – some with limited English skills – who work gruelling shifts and say they earn just £1.81 an hour. They are forced to decide in seconds whether or not to delete videos, pictures and posts which are too graphic or violent.  Staff face being sacked if they fail to meet strict quotas that mean they have to assess hundreds of extreme posts every shift. Facebook, which recorded profits of more than £4.7 billion in 2015, has come under fire for giving a platform to terrorists to spread their hateful propaganda.”

    So what’s happening here is a Filipino laborer making less than $2 an hour is reviewing the reported posts from Turtleboy Sports. This guy probably gets thousands from around the world every hour. He thinks about each post for half a second before validating it or ignoring it. If you do it enough times then you increase the chances that your report will be validated. This is what Facebook is allowed to get away with.

    Funny, because just a couple days ago Mark Zuckerberg was giving a feel good speech about a “universal basic income“:

    “We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure that everyone has a cushion to try new ideas,” Zuckerberg said at his Harvard commencement address Thursday.

    So basically everyone should have a universal basic income, unless they’re working in an outsources sweatshop in the Philippines for Facebook. Because Facebook is too cheap to hire people making $15 an hour. The hypocrisy is astounding.

    Of course the only reason these people were hired to begin with is because Facebook is OBSESSED with making sure no one ever gets their feelings hurt on Facebook:

    So they urge people to report shit by adding things like “fake news” to the list of reportable offenses. But the problem is that they don’t add the staff to support it. Ya know, like a real business would if they expanded. If the grocery store doubled in size, they’d hire new employees. Not Facebook though, they just outsource that shit to the Philippines to cut down on operating costs.

    So why do they get away with it? How does the most powerful and richest company in the world continue to be unregulated by the federal government? Simple – Elizabeth Warren is full of shit. Seriously, where the fuck is she when you need her? She’s the alleged watchdog of “big oil” and “big banks” and the champion for the little guy. But Facebook can do whatever the fuck they want and she doesn’t say SHIT. Fraud.

    Check out what it’s doing to our business too. Here’s the most recent posts we made, and the amount of people it reached, the number of clicks it got, and the amount of turtle riders who either liked it or commented on it:

    The one on the Revere City Councilor (which has since been removed with no explanation) got 290 views and was clicked on 27 times. Now lets look at what a typical day at the office was like prior to this suspension:

    As you can see, tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people viewed each blog, clicked on it, and/or left a comment. The Billerica firefighter sex story was viewed over 114,000 times. And since we make money per view, it’s obviously not good for business.

    No worries though. We’re not gonna whine, we’re gonna fight back like we always do. This is just the cost of doing business and a hurdle we will overcome. It will take time but make no doubt about it – we will win. We always win.

     

    We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.

      I guess the Filipinos don’t like (a) limericks about dinky doodles, (b) bankruptcy records of communists and (c) cut and paste of Springfield police logs. I still have almost 3 weeks of FaceBook jail sentence to serve for “repeatedly violating their community standards”, none of which relate to any one of my three serious offenses.

      Turtleboy is going make some cassette tapes: “13 Reasons Why I Was Banned From Facebook.”

      (None of the reasons will be “casual racism” and “making a business of humiliating vulnerable people.”)

      Ever since Dan Margolis took a bite out of Turtleboy, he’s been a pale shadow of himself.

      1. mystressovmayhem


        Cassette tapes? Nah probably a CD, and probably will sell more copies than that shit Margolis makes in a year. By the way, you like that world “vulnerable” hm? There is not one thing “Vulnerable” about the trailerpark prom Queen and Kings that the turtleboy writers blog about. “Vulnerable” people don’t have the balls to sell drugs, hang out windows screaming “Free my boi dipdizzywhizzle!”. Sell food stamps. Buy food stamps…to make chocolate penises. Make bogus Go Fuck Me’s to steal other people’s money via fraud. Beat the crap out of each other on video, nuke baby turtles on video as well, and the list goes on. This garbage is nowhere near “Vulnerable”. But it is Trashy, disgusting, ghetto, ratchet and pathetic. Sort of like, no nevermind. It IS like, defending guttertrash with words that belong to people who really deserve it.

        1. Chris


          I’ve heard that rage is a dead-giveaway that something has offered a challenge to your system of beliefs — obviously Dan Margolis hit you right between the eyes.

          I just feel sorry that this is all you have.

          1. North Country turtle Rider


            Settle down, Dan.

    3. Abouttime


      It’s about time someone took a stand, you don’t provide anything except ignorant, over embellished rants that you disguise as news stories when in fact they are just immaturely worded, hate filled, vengeful attacks on people, deserving of it or not….then continue to harass these people by flooding their inboxes and emails with vulgar, mocking messages for weeks basically telling them to kill themselves. Not to mention, your sad excuse for “writing” is embellished with blatant lies and accusations which you claim are facts and are nothing more than fairy tales concocted by angry, self loathing people and fueled by their own personal opinions of them, the worse they look….the more attention you get. All of this while attempting to hide your own identities so the idiots who follow you don’t realize that the people writing this junk are just as bad, if not worse than the people they set out to destroy.

      1. Margaret Melican


        And yet here you are…

        Im sure you have proof of all this, yes?

        Turtleboy got in over his head, and now he has to keep producing…something.

        For a while (early 2016 maybe?) this blog was getting pretty well known. I actually had a relative mention it to me during the holidays last year. (He thought he had the wrong address, because this website looks like garbage.)

        1. Mark D


          thats dumb. When I started following the FB page around Christmas time there were less than 50k followers, now there are like 75K. So if anything, more people are following now, not less.

          1. North Country turtle Rider


            Oh, Mark… you and all your indisputable facts.

      5. Ratchets are fun!


        Abouttime would you like to cry to deskie? Hmmm, which blog was about you? Keep crying on the comments… clearly you had to go searching for this story so your either a Fan or a SJW with no hobbies other than ranting. Either way, click away.

        1. Alex C


          We use adblockers…surely the TurtleBoy dosn’t bill his advertisers for clicks that don’t load the ads? That would be naughty.

          1. Fiesty Turtle Lady


            Ugh…………… what?

            The ads that are blocked are not ads from companies who pay to advertise here. Those ads are embedded in the blogs and will always show up between paragraphs.

            Internet 101 for ya!

      6. KayD


        So, Abouttime, let me see if I understand. You’re defending the guttertrash exposed by TB, the ones who happily publicly post on Facebook (not privately–public view settings, so that anyone can see it) that they want to sell state EBT benefits for cash. You don’t think that behavior hurts the people that it’s supposed to actually be helping, by undermining the entire system?

        You’re calling TB out for exposing people pulling automobile accident insurance scams? Or getting into knock-down, drag-out fights in public arenas and threatening the family (and in some cases, children) of their opponents?

        Do you feel that these activities should be hushed up, swept into the back corners of the internet, so that the happily oblivious masses can go work their 9-5 jobs and believe that all is right with the world? Or would you rather see things change–put the money currently going to food stamp fraud (and from there into drugs and alcohol) back into the state coffers so that our roads can finally be repaved correctly and not just patched for the 18th year in a row, or redistributed to schools so that our children can actually be taught stuff they’ll need to know in the real world–that is, things other than ‘Hair-pulling 101’ or ‘Lularoe and You: How to Cover It All While Still Putting It Out There’?

      Your might be temporarily banned, but I posted this for you turtles!!!!! Fakebook is all about fakenews! Their are thousands of terrorist related posts and accounts that support and actively speak on behalf of terror still operating on Facebook! They are just trying to eliminate REAL NEWS FILLED WITH TRUTH and suspending turtleboysports is another effective measure to keep the truth under wraps from citizens! Facebook went from fedbook to now fakebook and honestly without turtleboysports and truth telling journalists, people much like myself think it’s more like fecebook at this point.! This shit reiks! You guys should collaborate with other real news reporting sources to start your own platform that delivers true news, id pay for subscription for that, not a second thought! We know about the corruption going on and we’re sick of it too! Turtle rider for life ❤️

    5. DrinkinJameson


      Are the Filipinos working over here or in the Philippines? Cuz £2 in Europe is worth about a Billion Filipino pesos.

    6. Joe


      Zuckerman has always been a overrated poseur. The FIlipinos over there are treated like slaves too, guaranteed. This shows how Zuckerman is a hypocrite with double standards. No surprise with this one.

    7. Just Wondering?


      don’t want to ruffle any feathers here, but have you considered that page views were down because you were spitting out shit from your webpage with redirects to questionable websites, and other bullshit, potentially containing malware? I know I got redirected to foreign countries’ websites when I clicked on shit!

      I hate “sucker-bird” as much as you do! But how much of this is because of your website?

      1. Ratchets are fun!


        The pop ups were fixed before the ban. Also the pop ups had no effect on the real turtle riders like myself who took the 3 extra seconds to go to the web browser and open the page, I don’t think it would account for nearly 3/4 of the numbers to drop. Def a little, but not that much.

        1. Alex C


          The popups were actually part of a new revenue stream Turtleboy was trying to add– he’s lost a lot of his advertisers, and he’s cutting rates for the others when they ask. (Or so our spies North of worcester tell us.)

          He’d gladly infect you with spyware, if he could find a way to make a buck doing it.

        2. Just Wondering?


          Well, I took the three EXTRA, FUCKING, SECONDS, to go to the web page (browser) as well, and I STILL got redirected! So, please don’t tell me otherwise, Jack-Off!

          I didn’t access the page through FaceBook! I did it through the web!

          1. DONE SUX


            So testy…. no need to get all ragey over pop ups.

          2. KayD


            Huh. I only access the site through the web (I use Facebook as little as I can) and don’t get any popups when the main page or the articles load. Although it’s probably my browser settings, since I haven’t seen a popup browser window on any site since early 2011.

    8. Wwy


      It’s kike country TB hasn’t learned yet.

      1. White Pride White Power


        Welcome back, wwy. I’m not usually into dry, old broads (or broads in general), but I like your style. Wanna get a private chat room?

    9. Independent Thinker


      “Universal Basic Income” for everyone but himself. Just another elitist. If everyone were to stop using facebook, Mark Zuckerberg would end up needing a Universal Basic Income.

      I have a huge garden, which provides fresh vegetable to us all summer long, not to mention what we freeze and can for the winter. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun. If it were up to people like Mark Zuckerberg, I’d turn my harvest into the government to distribution to others by the central planners.

      I guess none of these people ever figured out that communism doesn’t work.
