We’re Starting A Facebook Group To Organize Mass Reporting Campaigns Of Selected Media Outlet’s Facebook Pages Because If You’re Not With Us You’re Against Us

 

Attention turtle riders: I have reached my breaking point with Facebook. As much trouble as they cause us, we need Facebook to grow because it’s where all the people are. We follow their stupid rules and get taken down anyway because mobs of idiots mass report us for porn or bullying or whatever, and since no one reviews these reports, if you do it enough times Facebook AI flags your page as problematic and takes you down. In the last 30 days we’ve had dozens of posts taken down, and four of our admin accounts suspended for 30 days. We also lost Turtleboy Sports Returns, which had 31,000 followers. Here’s a brief collection of stuff from just the last 30 days.

Like I said, I’d love to just blow Facebook off, but the fact of the matter is there are a lot of really dumb turtle riders out there who message us and say, “Hey you guys should start a website,” or “I haven’t seen you guys on Facebook recently, are you still blogging?” If that is you, I secretly hate you with every ounce of my being and I’m too polite to tell you that directly because you’re a fan.

My point is, Facebook has trained millions of people, without even realizing it, to believe that if it doesn’t appear in their Facebook page then it doesn’t exist. Gone are the days when people go directly to their favorite websites. Social media has programmed us to go to them first, and then they will act as the gatekeepers to decide what you see, and we don’t have the power to change that. No one should ever possess that amount of power over the dissemination of information, but yet here they are. We have an app, an email list, and over 8 million people last year went directly to our site. But without Facebook, blogs don’t get shared, they don’t spread, and we don’t grow. It is a necessary evil.

At this point our track record for real news is pretty well established. Look at all the stories we’ve investigated in the Turtleboy Investigates category. Obviously the State Police stories have been the biggest, but none of them would’ve been picked up by the media if we didn’t write about them first. And all of them have elicited some type of reform to resolve the problem we highlighted. This is the essence of journalism, and why a free press exists in the first place.

We’ve contacted numerous media outlets about this, particularly conservatives because they’re more likely to pick up on a story like this. But Market Watch, the NewBostonPost, and the New Bedford Guide are the only media outlets who have written about it. The Boston Herald’s Michael Graham said he was going to write about us because he was a fan, but never did. So did the Daily Caller. The Turtlegram and Gazette, Masslive, Worcester Magazine, the Boston Globe, and countless other outlets that have cited our work, or used their platform to criticize us, have all remained silent. That’s because they want us to stay down, because independent media is a threat to their existence.

At this point I consider these media outlets are enemies. If they’re not willing to write about this it’s because they won’t understand what it feels like until it happens to them. THEN they will write about it, and these issues can begin to get fixed. The media should be uniting to stop censorship on social media. Instead they cheer it on because they think it couldn’t happen to them. That’s where you all come in.

We’ve created a Facebook group that dedicated turtle riders can join, for the sole purpose of mass reporting the shit out of pages that we direct you to mass report. The only way the media will write about this if it happens to them. And as you’ve seen from our enemies, it’s not that hard to take down any page you don’t like. Look at how dedicated these losers are to silencing us:

Facebook allows you to anonymously report a page, but these people were cocky enough to openly brag about taking us down. They probably report us hundreds of times before an algorithm is triggered and we get flagged.

This is the kind of dedication it’s going to take in order to take down other pages. If you’re not down for it, that’s cool. But we formed this group for the sole purpose of mass reporting pages we choose. We will assign 5-6 admins who will direct you at targeted pages. We’ll start with conservative pages, since they’re the ones who should be writing about this stuff but aren’t. We will give you tips on how to report, and what to report for. Typically bullying, hate speech, sexual violence, and spam are the most effective. Understand that most of the time you will fail when you report a page. As one commenter pointed out:

The thing I am astounded with is how you get “suspended” frequently or have articles removed. Yet, I and many others reported a fake page and it still remains, FB says it doesn’t violate their standards. 

That’s because if you reported a post once it’s probably not going to get taken down, since a human being most definitely did NOT review your report. You have to be as dedicated as the people trying to take us down. It’s time to give these media companies a taste of what it’s like to be Turtleboy. If you’re not with us, you’re against us. And we will burn everything.

Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help. Please consider donating by hitting the PayPal button above if you’d like support free speech and what we do in the face of Silicon Valley censorship.

    I love TBS and you bet your ass I go to this website everyday to read all the blogs. I listen to every live show ( I’m pretty sure I haven’t missed one) but I can not deal with Facebook. I don’t even want their app or website on any device I own. I do understand why you have to do it though. I just wish people would smarten up and get it through their heads, that they don’t need to have Facebook at all to be a turtle rider.

    I joined the group but Facebag will ignore complaints against groups that have proper “think”. But hey what the hell it is worth a shot.

    For the haters nothing in this thread of things that were banned were racist. I am sorry if the truth makes you angry.

    You’re really dense, that’s not why this is happening. You’re getting blocked because of how many people report ALL of your pages and new profiles every time you share it trying to get around a block. You make a new account then share it here and everyone who hates you then clicks the link and reports it… you’re doing half the work for us. It will keep happening too boo don’t worry, we know you need FB. Don’t be surprised if your IP are blocked actually after sharing this article with FB support.

      Wah wah wah, you’re the fuckin problem. You like free speech until someone says something you disagree with, then you want to silence them. Not quite how it works though. People are getting fed up with shit and all the d bag SJW will end up destroying themselves, see the groups that attacked the Covington kids. Oh tight, in your book they are all racist anyway cuz of white privilege and those Maga hats. Seek help, Hillary lost, move the fuck on loser.

    Americans won’t be told by some kike what they can or cannot say,the Jew Stalin would be proud of Zuk but we always reject Jewish communism. TB should do the same.

    You’re wasting your time. People are logging off Facebook and twitter faster than you can mass report them. The free market is taking care of this for you it’s just not happening at a pace that’s visible to you. Soon Facebook and Twitter will only be left with old folks and celebrities, people who don’t even read TB and never will.

    At some point, if you want to expand your empire you’re going to have to admit that you need Facebook, they don’t need you. Does it suck? Sure, but that’s reality. They don’t owe you anything. You can have unfettered access to millions of potential readers for FREE. Just grow up and use nice words. Is it that hard? Or you can keep up your faux-rebel freedom fighter schtick and keep this nice little site with 1,000 BS internet ads to scroll through and a few dumpy Worcester diner ads.

    Your choice.

    Wouldn’t it be alot easier to just not post racist shit?

    I mean, millions of folks can do it, Im sure you can too.

    For me to do this, I would have to sign up for both of them.
    Sorry, you are on your own.
    Good luck.

      Exactly. FB sucks and it’s mostly for +50 yr olds. It’s dying a slow death. Gotta stop sucking up to them. People will just keep reporting…you’ll never win that battle.

      I always go to the website although to be honest, love ya TB but the site also sucks. It’s slow and the ads just make it look like a 1990 site.. Some of the ad pics can be confused with the content as they are now contained within the wording. And I beg of you to proof read and/or edit the blogs. Please. I know the whole “it doesn’t matter about spelling etc” but I love your posts and some of the important ones (Staties) would go further without errors.

      Just an honest opinion. I’ll read & follow no matter what.

    There is one way, and one way only, to combat this.

    It’s call “discovery”.

    I don’t Facefuck or Twatter, I come to TBS.com directly. I would love to help and I have, eg. I gave the Queefhog Leprechaun a call and said “This is the RI Institute for mental health and was wondering if the thorazine injections were helping with the anger management issues.” I have not called Chad (Named after the little piece of chud from the old punch type voting ballots in honor of free muh Gore) but I will tomorrow. Keep on keepin’ on.

    Censorship trolls need to be exposed. I wish social media wasn’t so vulnerable to such terrorists.

    Question though–can a group be shut down? I really hope this works for you.

    In the over two years I have been reading this blog I have never once gone through fb to get to an article, I always go directly to the website. The only time I even log into fb now is to occasionally read the comments on a really good article I read on your site. I currently have over 900 notifications and have no plan to check any of them out.

    Oh boy, this can go either way…
    I hope it’s beneficial and doesn’t go terribly wrong.
