Petition to Mark Zuckerberg

FACEBOOK: Add "Cringe React" NOW

For years, you had 2 options concerning Facbeook posts: like them, or don't. In response, Facebook has created "reactions," giving more variety than the simple "like." This new feature gives you the choice to "Like," "Love," "Sad," "Haha," "Wow," or "Angry."  However, there is one extremely notable omission from this list.  Sign this petition to demand that Mark Zuckerberg add a "Cringe" react immediately.  When I see something cringy, I am relegated back to 2008 as I choose which reaction to use. I don't like the post! I certainly don't love it! And even if it's funny, it didn't make me "Haha." But it didn't make me sad or angry, either. The bottom line is: IT MADE ME CRINGE!  My independent research has determined that cringy posts on Facebook have been on an exponential rise, and they don't show any signs of slowing. If Facebook is to be a truly interactive social network, I must be given access to one of the basic emotions that I use in real life.  Without a cringe react, people end up either using angry react or mocking each other in the comments. This leads to an increase in Facebook quarreling. Facebook fights lead to a hostile environment on your platform, Mr. Zuckerberg. That means people avoid Facebook, which means you get to mine less data. Less data from us means less information on how humans behave, which makes you a less convincing robot; and based off of your public appearances, you need all the help you can get.

Responsibilities Required From Social Media Regarding Romance Scamming and Identity Theft

THE CAUSE:  Romance Scammers are all over social media networks. These scammers primarily use pictures, names and valor's of men and women who are actively serving in our military, retired  or are deceased. Other prime targets for the scamming are Celebrities, and other high profile names. The scammers are aware how highly Americans think and feel for their military and they use this to pull at the heart strings of vulnerable men and women. Working with a retired Colonel from the United States Army whose pictures, name and child have been used in the scammers story, I have come to realize just what an epidemic this is. Unfortunately, many of the victims are afraid, ashamed, and embarrassed to come forward. Many just want to forget about the scam and move on with their lives. That is why I bring this petition to you. Due to the overwhelming numbers of fraudulent accounts throughout social media and the unidentified number of victims, we need to be the voice.  Social Media has a great amount of power, and with power comes an abundance of responsibility. THE BATTLE:  Because of the majority of military romance scammers residing in other countries, the United States has very little jurisdiction over these criminals, therefore we must work from where and what we know, and that is through the United States and our legislative system. We are looking to encourage social media sites to provide more public service announcements by way of television, movie theater ads, magazines, radio, etc. and provide additional man power to their fraudulent account tracking system as well as upgrading their security system to recognize these duplicated accounts that are recreated literally moments to hours after being deleted. Facial recognition does not solve all problems, especially when these scammers are using generic pictures (flowers, hearts etc.) on their profiles and cyber security is unable to recognize this discrepancy. OUR PROPOSAL: We are working hard to find a Champion to take on our proposal to amend the 230 Communications Decency Act of 1996 with the focus on identity theft. When this law was put into place 20 years ago there was little to no thought of the extreme type of crimes that could and or would be posted onto the social media platforms. This law gives social media a "get out of jail free" card, in other words, they are not held responsible for anything posted to their site by their own consumers. These sites are used as breeding grounds, and the social media companies are fully aware. We are not people who promote regulation, however it is very obvious, in previous news stories and with our own investigation, that self regulation is not the answer to consumer safety and security. We are proposing routine technology upgrades, additional staff to match growing population and ongoing up to date education. Items that are not successfully being done under self regulation. PERSONAL NOTE: I am a very proud daughter to a mother who served in our Navy, and brother and father who served in our Army. I also have multiple cousins, aunts and uncles who have served and the thought of our military being abused and disrespected is appalling! My mothers friend fell victim to a scammer using the pictures of the Colonel I am currently working with, thus being the reason I have become so involved. I, like many others, had no idea what an epidimic this has become and what little is being done. Social Media needs to take on more responsibility for this breeding ground than they already have, not just for the sake of the victims, but for the sake of our security, and Military whose job is to protect us. What security is social media providing them? Obviously, not the right kind. Scammers are the cancer to the social media world and it's time our companies and legislature took a stand and initiative to help prevent such illness within our military community and every day victims.

End Social Media Censorship

PERMANENTLY END CENSORSHIP ON SOCIAL MEDIAShare it on Twitter NOW, CLICK HERE!Share this petition on Facebook NOW CLICK HERE! Convince your friends - Share the link ! Use your social networks! Talk to the people in your personal environment. Contact five people directly with a call to action and to sign the petition. This way, everyone can contribute a lot. forwards directly to this petition.Donate to the Brittain for US Senate Craig R. Brittain (that's me) the main petition author - I'm a Republican running for US Senate in Arizona. You can donate from anywhere in the US. Some friends and I who have been permanently suspended from (and/or otherwise permanently censored by) Big Tech social media for over 2 years now created this petition. Some of them now work for my campaign, full disclosure. This petition/message is fully endorsed by me and my campaign. On Feb. 1, 2017, my VERIFIED Twitter account with over 150,000 followers, and my journalism account which had about 100,000 followers, were simultaneously permanently suspended. In March of 2018, my campaign staff (of Brittain for Senate '18) and their accounts with a combined following of over 250,000 were permanently banned from Twitter. I lost over 500,000 followers. Had I remained on Twitter until now, I would have over 3 million total followers at this point, based on Twitter's own projections for my extremely popular verified account. Twitter interfered with my election in 2018, or I would be addressing you as Senator Brittain already. But there's a chance to right the wrong of Twitter's election interference - donate to my campaign. You can also text me at any time - please do so - 6025025612. As long as I pay the bill, at least they can never censor my cell phone! Additionally, if you are in Arizona, I need 8,000 signatures to get on the ballot (you must be a registered Arizona voter.) You can sign at the eponymous (look it up)  ^^^ click here if you're an AZ voter. ^^^Explanation:The Courts in Knight First Amendment Institute v. Trump and other Federal cases have ruled that you have the FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT to access the PUBLIC FORUMS, which are the digital spaces (accounts, feeds, etc.) on Twitter, Facebook, Google, YouTube, etc. when an agency or official uses them in their official capacity.Logical Conclusion: The bans of social media accounts are thereby censorship. The question must permanently be settled and the social media companies must unban the accounts of everyone they've suspended, and verify (blue check) the accounts of all prominent people they have suspended. Over 50,000 US Government officials and agencies use Twitter, Facebook and Google/YouTube in their official capacity. Just assume this means NO ONE SHOULD BE SUSPENDED PERMANENTLY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA FOR ANY REASON, as that interferes with your Constitutional Rights to follow government agencies and officials. You're paying for social media with your tax dollars. You pay for government operation of those public Twitter/Facebook/YouTube accounts with your tax dollars. Additionally, many lobbyist groups like CAIR are using your tax dollars to censor your social media accounts, as they sit on the boards of these social media companies. Imagine paying tax dollars for something, only to have the very organizations receiving your tax money spend it to subsidize your own suspension. We must mobilize. Enough is enough. Sign, sign, sign, sign now, share with everyone you know.When you sign, Twitter, Facebook, Google/YouTube will see your signature! Sign now! Let's get our speech back!Here is a list of some of the names of people and groups whose accounts must be fully restored (more will be added):Alex Jones, Craig R. Brittain, Laura Loomer, Martin Shkreli, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Liz Crokin, Wael Abbas, Occupy Wall Street members (including Dan Veidt and Vladimir Teichberg), Owen Benjamin, Mike Ma, Pax Dickinson, Anthony Cumia, Roger Stone, Meghan Murphy, Tommy Robinson, Baked Alaska, Jared Wyand, Imperator Rex, Charlie Poet, Flying Shadows, Thomas Wictor, Jamal Khashoggi, Azealia Banks, Robert Stacy McCain, Tila Tequila, Paul Nehlen, Chuck Johnson, Sabo, Michael Moates, Jared Beck, Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad), Vox Day, Pizza Party Ben, Jacob Engels, Jacob Wohl, James Woods, David Horowitz, Michelle Malkin, Joe Biggs, Mary Ann Mendoza.30 Alternative News Outlets including: The Anti-Media, Police the Police, Cop Block, Press for Truth, Nation in Distress, and many more.A special thank you to everyone who signs:As you may know, being deplatformed and losing anywhere from thousands of dollars worth of value to even millions for larger accounts is extremely painful.You are fighting for people who have had large sums of money as well as personal value and historical/personal record (in the form of their tweets which stand as an accurate record of their personal history) stolen from them. You are fighting against digital book burners and thieves. Deplatforming is an act of theft. Supporters of deplatforming say it is effective against its target - but sure, so is theft. If you steal all of someone's money, indeed, that's "effective" - it's also criminal.  Twitter states a value of $2.50-$5 per follower on their service. Facebook states a value of $2-$10 per like/friend on their serviceYouTube states a value of $3-10 per subscriber on their service.The suspension of any account is an act of conversion. (What does that mean?) When Twitter suspends an account with 150,000 followers, it has effectively converted those followers back to their dollar value ($375,000-750,000 USD) and that money must be immediately paid to the individual who owns those followers, i.e. the account-holder. Yet Twitter has refused to return this stolen money to the holder of any account it has suspended. Courts have also held repeatedly that any company which refuses an arbitration process regarding a contract is in breach of contract. (A company need not include an arbitration clause, however, they must submit to and comply with binding arbitration, which is heavily weighted on the behalf of the individual requesting arbitration, not the corporation complying with said arbitration, in terms of case law.) Yet Twitter, Facebook and Google have not consented to a single arbitration hearing, and have actively avoided arbitration hearings, and courts which have upheld arbitration hearings for similar corporations under similar circumstances have dropped the ball on these companies. Is it coincidence or accident?  No, there are no coincidences or accidents. And that is why we must circulate this petition and raise mass awareness of censorship. Only when there are millions of witnesses to these crimes can justice truly belong to The People. You are a hero. Everyone who signs - you are a hero. Never forget that you are a hero and a fighter for free speech for all.
