The rest? Debatable. Not worth my time. Facebook, Twitter, etc. are not public utilities and are not obliged to be fair to anyone. Doesn't make them evil.
That wasn't my argument.

But as you're done, there's no point in belaboring it anymore.

That's all very well but Facebook is evil, and furthermore Zuckerberg failed the Turing test while being questioned by a congressional committee. :)

The problem is that they seem to be content policing while declaring (to regulatory bodies) that they are a free for all public square.

It's bait and switch. Lightly moderated without ideological enforcement until we're dependent, then WHAMMO!.
But I don't think it was evil planning from the start.

What happened is they were blamed (and sort of blamed themselves) for Trump getting elected, and changed policies accordingly.

So now they are discrediting themselves the way the formerly mainstream media did during the election.

In short, delusions of grandeur + hysteria.

Facebook calls this hate speech.

Bullshit.

Facebook is evil.
In response to backlash, Facebook later changed that ruling. “The post does not break our Community Standards and it has been restored,” a Facebook representative told The Daily Caller. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
Yeah, right.

Why does it always take a huge backlash?

Why can't they do the right thing in the first place?

Why?

Because Facebook is evil.

Need more evidences?

Very funny.

But seriously folks, the USA was the second country (after France) to "go metric", we just didn't make it compulsory.
Because this is a free country. :p

So that in (for example) 1812, contract (with the French) specifying something in "kilogrammes" would be legally enforceable in the USA, but not the UK.
