https://www.thetruth...ther-group/Zuck strikes again. On Sunday, Facebook deleted the very popular “Illinois Gun Owners Together – IGOT” private Facebook group. And with the appeal is stretching into the fourth day, it looks like IGOT won’t be back.
We have watched as Facebook has shadow-banned conservative content in earnest following President Trump’s election. Now, Zuckerberg’s minions have moved to simply ban it on the platform altogether. And gun rights activism certainly fits that bill.
Don’t give up on IGOT yet, I am still optimistic they will return. Despite my criticisms the group is still a valuable and missed resource.
Another Facebook group I am in, Sig Sauer P365 Discussion Only with almost 17,000 members, disappeared in mid-May for violating Facebook rules. From what I can tell, members were discussing prices on firearms or accessories, or linking to a webpage that showed prices on guns, hinting about a sale/trade, etc. Facebook is keeping a close eye on behavior like that, and members aren’t even allowed to hint at prices by talking about Benjamins, roses, etc.
I think it took almost a week for them to get re-instated, but I don’t know what hoops you have to jump through to make it happen. The moderators are more diligent than ever but there are always the odd members that think the rules don’t apply to them.
