I can tell you, it's not that free. After politely informing a number of Leftists of the facts and dispelling some of their daft illusions on the Guardian's FB page, they have now filtered me (any comments are automatically logged as spam and only the Guardian and I can read them). It doesn't happen on other pages.

The enraged Leftists who spewed bile at me are still free to post.

Can't you just use a different email address to post them there?

Maybe they send one of those confirmation emails where you need to click
a link to verify that you are actually, er, you.

I regard it as a kind of 'safe space'. The Incubus has been
'no-platformed'.

It's the comment section on FB, which would require a fake profile.

Stop keeping it alive by having anything to do with it then.

Let it suffer the low lingering death that commercialism is directing it towards.

Don't encourage it. Let the queer Owen Jones ear an honest living. Take comfort from the knowledge that such is its popularity and influene, it has to print things like this:

'Unlike many others, we have not put up a paywall - We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Support us for £5 per month.'

A public newssheet that has to resort to that is finished. It's just that the funeral has been somewhat delayed .

Move over 'Daily Herald (that's going back a bit!) to make more room.

Guardian articles get a lot of coverage on FB. Whether the reason is
due to their algorithm, the collective opinions of my social network,
some form of deal or a policy to promote Leftist news sources, I feel
obliged to try and balance what passes for debate.

The real question is probably 'Why do I bother with FB?' ;)

I often refer to it as 'Fakebook' or 'Facefuck'.
