And now, some context… entyti Send a noteboard - 01/05/2022 08:03:49 PM

It was a big bru-haha in August 2020 when the Babylon Bee was suspended prior by Twitter for a different reason.

So I looked into this, and all I found was Twitter briefly suspending the Babylon Bee, then reinstating them after an hour, claiming it was an error (flagged as spam by mistake). Is there some other incident from then? Or is this the incident you are referencing?


Likewise another incident in Oct 2021 with the Bee founder Adam Ford tweeting on his personal account how much he hates the Twitter policy on hate speech on protected categories such as Trans people. The trans person with Oct 2021 is the same specific Rachel Levine which caused the March 2022 ban.

So this was the Not-The-Bee account that, to my knowledge, is the non-satirical arm that reports news. They tweeted “Twitter suspended a sitting congressman for calling transgender HHS official Rachel Levine — who is a biological male — a ‘man’.” Is this the incident you are referencing?


So I am now asking for my apology. Because I am petty on this issue when this is a reoccurring problem, I give good faith, and someone… in this case you specifically … you say I am operating in Bad Faith (saying things not true.)

No this has been a frequent occurrence with the Bee.


Not looking for an apology, mate. I believe I am the one who said “I’m sorry…”

I don’t like to assume anyone is operating in “Bad Faith” (well, except Fionwe ). In this discussion, though, I don’t think you have demonstrated that there is a problem, let alone a reoccurring problem.

PS Bad Faith is not saying things that are not true. Bad Faith is saying things that are not true that you know are not true. There is a difference.
