disinformation


Linked-in has determined a comment of mine had to be censored as “disinformation”. So I ask, what is this stuff? What is the great sin in my published words that the vulnerable world had to be protected from?

disinformation:
1a(1): the body of real things, events, and facts : ACTUALITY
(2): the state of being the case : FACT
(3): often capitalized : a transcendent fundamental or spiritual reality
b: a judgment, proposition, or idea that is true or accepted as true
c: the body of true statements and propositions
2a: the property (as of a statement) of being in accord with fact or reality
b: chiefly British : TRUE sense
c: fidelity to an original or to a standard
3a: sincerity in action, character, and utterance
b: archaic : FIDELITY, CONSTANCY


You earn a Blue Star if you guess the definition above is mine rather than that of those who would control the narrative were they allowed.

(In the primary schools of my youth shiny gold-silver-blue-red-green star stickers were adhered to our papers as rewards for various levels of work thereupon. Blue denoted good work, just not great.)

The words I posted that were so threatening they had to be forcibly removed to protect a vulnerable public were in response to the approved post image to the right and a few supportive comments below it.

I put the following terrifying words below their Kum-ba-yah party:

“Four airplane wrecks in history where there was no luggage to sift through, no wing pieces, no tail section and the engines completely disappeared. But you guys wanna believe a cell phone call that took place from 5 miles in the air? Your mythology. Not mine.”

To which the knights in shining armor quickly responded:

“Only you can see this comment. It’s been removed because it goes against our Professional Community Policies.”

Ah, I see, your professional community can only handle one side of a narrative. Alternate views might expose a naked emperor to his underlings, which could destroy the entire empire itself.

Hmmm … now that I mention it, that idea doesn’t sound bad at all…
