I have shamed us all

Bot sentinel doesn’t so much measure bots as people who break the Twitter terms of service. And I have scored satisfactory. Folks, I very nearly scored normal!

To be honest, I’m not surprised I register as mild mannered on twitter. I’m more of a scalpel than a hammer. Okay, more of an empty tin of Spam with a super jaggedy edge.

Call a lefty an asshole and you give him a spasm of anger. Gently mock his beliefs in their weakest places and you make him howl until he rage-blocks you. Even better, ask sensible questions politely until he cracks.

It’s a sport.

I was checking up on myself because last night, I really did cop a timeout for a tweet – my second ever. Twitter demanded I delete the offending tweet. Whatever could it be? I wondered.

You know Dylan Roof, the shit-heel who shot up a black church and killed nine people and got the death penalty for it? When Fox reported his appeal to the Supreme Court had been rejected, I tweeted this. And caught a ban for it.

Twitter’s algorithms are so busted.

“Burn him” seems pretty mild to me. My preference is that he be slowly lowered into a pit of agitated and hungry baboons.

p.s. It just occurred to me that by Twitter standards, “Normal” is not “Satisfactory”.

Meanwhile, the guy who went after Target Tori was literally asking his followers to call the VA child abuse hotline because a Delegate candidate said she’d teach her daughter real American history, thankyouverymuch. He was reported by scads of people and twitter said, “eh, it’s fine.”

I’m not impressed SWeasy…I would have thought you’d at least reach ‘Disruptive’…you need to work harder ;+)

“…empty tin of Spam with a super jaggedy edge.” …that’s good, I’m gonna steal that sometime.

I’m definitely in category 4 : Problematic.

I’m so problematic, they suspended me.


Help me, Obi Elon Musk, you’re my only hope!

Since we can’t use the thumbs up emoji for fear we’ll cause a gen z special snowflake to melt because it’s passive aggressive…..

Don’t give these clowns power.

I am no expert at this stuff, but it seems like they have handed you a bit of a challenge.

Kind of like a 3D chess game.

It is up to you to decide what level of Twitter miscreant you wish to qualify for. Then play your normal Twitter troll games, but with an eye toward achieving and maintaining your target miscreant status.

What is this “Twitter” you speak of.

I quit and no longer follow many social media platforms except for a handful of Tweeters, bloggers and a likewise number of special interest Vloggers.

So I’m happy to lurk in the rear ranks sipping ale and munching spam Beggars’Burnt Ends while Stoaty crosses swords with the infidels.

I’ve been using spam to make Musubi but THIS!

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
