Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  4. Some might be interested to read the leaked Facebook Moderators guide from 2012.

    The news story is here:

    Inside Facebook's Outsourced Anti-Porn and Gore Brigade, Where 'Camel Toes' are More Offensive Than 'Crushed Heads'

    The article does not link to the actual manual; but thoughtfully you can find it here.

    Facebook Outsourced Abuse Standards/Content Moderation Manual | Public Intelligence

    An interesting guide, if true, to how they categorize what is acceptable or otherwise.

    (Of course, given that they have just been caught a cold over the whole Russian adverts thing; a newer edition of the book appears to be in order!)

    The martial lexical field shows it: media propaganda is a war front per se.

    'Words as weapons'

    Do Isis regard La Francophonie as potentially more fertile ground for their mediaeval lunacy ?
  7. They certainly have a historical grievance with the French policy in the Levant, and a modern source of support in disgruntled Algerian youth in France.
