Wow it’s been FOREVER! Well not literally forever but figuratively it does seem that way doesn’t it?
I’ve been busy, very busy, and I’ve been lapse in keeping up with a few things. One of the reasons it down to a bout of depression. I think I have allowed that to have it’s way too long, now shush brain and get back on track.
Today I write not about cosplay, not about my random outings… but about something that’s irking me greatly. The fact that many social media outlets appear to be letting idiots run the ship.
I do the occasional let’s play or video of a game, they are usually World of Warcraft, because Blizzard seem too like their customers to enjoy their games and want you to shout out about it. This is a business model I can really understand, my friends and random passersby are in a position to see what fun they might be missing out on; also on fun they are currently engaged in or to reminisce. This means people might buy the game, buy the merch and generally enjoy. It’s digital word of mouth.
I do NOT understand the following:
Random idiot/troll makes a dispute to Facebook/Youtube and said companies react with a bot/department/software that instantly believes this report and removes it.
Have you ever tried to contact these places to get a human being involved ANYTHING? It’s ridiculous. You can’t. You can’t talk to someone, you can’t appeal to rational human beings. You rely on this absolutely awful policy of up to 30 days of dead water.
In no other functioning, and sensible, business model is the policy down there to ruin the clients experience and then sh*t on them from afar. So why do we put up with it? The digital online technology is amazing, people can do amazing things and yet thanks to a troll or even down to large corporations with these badly programmed bots, the average Joe and small businesses are crushed!
Capitalism is crushing creativity, inventive outlets and above all is using things like ‘Copyright’ on a ten second clip to basically crush the little guy.
Case in point? Leon Chiro! Leon Chiro Cosplay Art has been hammered to death by 20 idiotic, and vitriolic little turds falsely reporting his account to FB. The gentleman in question has provided documented legal proof of who he is, and many of us have tried to report to them just what is going on and to get this reinstated… the fact is, this is not the first time, and yet this outdated and easily abused system is costing a man’s career…
We will enter a digital dark age, not because of technology, but because erring on the side of paranoid caution will cause it’s decline.
FIX IT PEOPLE! Come on 😦
