Social media companies have long been guilty of making things difficult on the Second Amendment community. Google/YouTube has been denying gun channels the right to monetize their videos through selling advertising or issuing arbitrary bans for people such as Jeorg Sprave .
Facebook denies companies and makers the right to advertise their wares for sale. Gun sales have long been verboten in Groups, but Facebook has recently begun to crack down on private sales of knives, both from individual collectors and from makers. However, you too can avoid Facebook knife sale censors. All it takes is a little ingenuity and self-censoring.
Here are some rules of thumb to avoid Facebook knife sale censors:
- Avoid the Facebook “Sales” feature.
- Do not list a price, say “PM me for details” or similar.
- Avoid words like “knife” and “sale” and weapon
- Swap “trigger” words. “Sale” becomes “Sail” “Raffle” is “waffle”, “Knife” becomes “Nyfe”
- Get creative. Like this guy here:
Of course Facebook is a private company. Fuckerberg owns the sandbox, he gets to make the rules. Fortunately for him, and unfortunately for me, I still derive enough of a net benefit from remaining on Facebook that I have not yet become pissed off enough to leave. That said, I only remain active because it is necessary for the blog. My personal page has been quiet for almost a year now.
