Facebook Frivolity

 It seems that the Biden administration has asked Facebook to crack down on unwanted social media posting, which means postings that they don't like.  This has led to some interesting frivolity.  A gardening  group was discussing implements to week a garden, and the monitors cracked down on it.

Facebook flagged the word hoe in a gardening group.

Of course, every gardener should be familiar with a hoe.  Sometimes we use a spade for prep and a hoe for maintenance.   And what do we use to maintain both the spade and the hoe?  Why a flat bastard, of course.

I can play these games all day.

Ah yes, spades and hoes are something all us country folks are familiar with! Unlike the city types...

There's a meme out there, a screen shot of FB or similar:

OP: I'm at the Home Depot! Where the hoes at?

Response: Gardening section.

OP: Thank you!

Facebook is hemorrhaging users, and they punish down on large portions of the users they have left at the whim of someone who has stated they need more regulation and make too much money?
Bad business choice... the mind doth boggle!

When you pervert the meaning of the words('gay' is a particular pet peeve of mine)...other thoughts, when dictionary skills aren't part of the school curriculum, what do you expect?
