Islamist Gangs Terrorize Facebook!

by Alphaville Herald on 08/05/10 at 11:56 pm

The biggest MMO of them all – Facebook – is being terrorized by gangs of Islamists, filing mass abuse reports against those they target for removal according to ReadWriteWeb. Using tactics similar to those of the Justice League Unlimited, a notorious Second Life vigilante group, the Islamists "single out users they consider ideologically unorthodox (a broad category indeed by their definition) and then using Facebook’s public ban process to stop their mouths" according to ReadWriteWeb, who’s French editor was targetted.

The report goes on to say the problems started "when groups and fanpages became public allowing those guys to make some list of profiles to be harassed on Facebook, taking advantage of a loophole in Facebook’s crowd-sourced moderation process when it comes to banning profiles: if a few dozen members alert Facebook about one profile as being a fake, it is automatically deactivated".

We wonder if this was the sort of emergent behaviour Facebook expected when they embarked on what seems to be an ongoing program of making more and more private information public. As for gangs of griefers in online social media, this must have been expected – look at the history of The Sims Online.

    Breaking News! Madison Square Garden Entertainment has a link to the Kalel Venkman vigilante story!

    But if you look under

    There’s nothing, so I have no idea why that article link appears for a Jordan query lol.

    I don’t condone torture but it starting to seem like a “death by a thousand cuts” for the JLU situation. As for Islamists well Prokofy has started using Islamist terms to describe certain topics, and I would not ever recommend she should stand up against Islamists.

    Due to the fact all her information is public after years of griefing and arguing, and do we really want Prokofy driving Islamic fundamentalists into Second Life to become the new griefers and dragging us all down with her?.

    It’s bad enough in real life without it creeping into Second Life and considering you only need to take a glace at Pat Condell’s Godless Comedy feedback page, to realise you would be out of your mind to risk posting anything that drives traffic from them.

    People used to say “Watch your P’s and Q’s” and speak politely, but it’s more now a case of “Watch your keywords”.

    One good thing about them-there Cinnabun an’ All Kinda (the ones who works for ol’ Ben Laden) fundamentalists, if’n Protology Never gits ‘em into SL–you could shoot ‘em up close and personal. Mite becum a new game!

    Fundamentalist: “Corpulent lapdog of the Great Satan! Die a thousand deaths!” (opens up with AK)

    Pappy: “Hey, boy, ever heared of an Enoch Holler Slay-ride? I done put some armur-plate on the front o’ my truk. Hopes you likes bein’ a hood ornament on ol’ Bessy Lou” (pedal to the metal)

    Hoo whee! Bring ‘em on, Prok!

    Quite right, esp given her location in NYC, the fact that most islamists can’t seem to venture far beyond the Hudson (Ft Hood and underwear bomber exceptions), she’s a sitting duck up there on the East Side. But don’t put down Prok, given her vitriol, I wouldn’t be surprised if she could spit venom like a cobra.

    Bastards alert:

    In the past week nearly 5,000 members of the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) have downloaded special “megaphone” software that alerts them to anti-Israeli chatrooms or internet polls to enable them to post contrary viewpoints. A student team in Jerusalem combs the web in a host of different languages to flag the sites so that those who have signed up can influence an opinion survey or the course of a debate.

    The Times of London

    IMHO – anyone who does this crap is despicable; I don’t give a damn what religion they are, I will have nothing to do with any of them.

    Its official. The human race is doomed to stupidity. Pardon me while I go hide under a fucking rock while the whole of society destroys itself.
