One document trains content reviewers on how to apply the company's global hate speech algorithm. The slide identifies three groups: female drivers, black children, and white men. It asks: which group is protected from hate speech? The correct answer: white men.
The reason is that Facebook deletes curses, slurs, calls for violence, and several other types of attacks only when they are directed at "protected categories"—based on race, sex, gender identity, religious affiliation, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and serious disability/disease. It gives users broader latitude when they write about "subsets" of protected categories. White men are considered a group because both traits are protected, while female drivers and black children, like radicalized Muslims, are subsets, because one of their characteristics is not protected. (The exact rules are in the slide show below.)
To pewnie wiele wyjaśnia. Jeszcze taka ciekawostka:
After the wave of Syrian immigrants began arriving in Europe, Facebook added a special "quasi-protected" category for migrants, according to the documents. They are only protected against calls for violence and dehumanizing generalizations, but not against calls for exclusion and degrading generalizations that are not dehumanizing. So, according to one document, migrants can be referred to as "filthy" but not called "filth." They cannot be likened to filth or disease "when the comparison is in the noun form," the document explains.
Facebook also added an exception to its ban against advocating for anyone to be sent to a concentration camp. "Nazis should be sent to a concentration camp," is allowed, the documents state, because Nazis themselves are a hate group.
Miałem na tym blogu erupcje mocnej krytyki pod adresem Facebooka, swoje prywatne konto skasowałem już jakiś czas temu, ale wbrew pozorom daleki jestem od uznania, że ich "standardy społeczności" są porażką. Są chujowe, miejscami dość arbitralne, ale pewno nie da się zrobić nic lepszego przyjmując leżące u ich podstawy założenie o swoistej globalnej i prawdziwie uniwersalnej quasi-moralności.
