Dear Readers,

I imagine I am not the only one who has been harassed lately by Russian trolls and even people using USA military addresses.

Russian trolls first began arguing with me on several of my blogs, including this one and my OpEdNews site. This was around 2014 when observant investigative reporters first noted them playing with progressives and conservativestrolling and picking fights with readers and authors.

On-and-off, starting in 2007 in Kuwait, I sensed that former US military personnel were making it hard for me to keep working with certain schools and firms in the city. More recently, in January of this year, someone reporting to be an American soldier out of Afghanistan approached my mother at her Facebook page, which then spun into endless emails from a ".mil" site.

My mother went on to warn me that this supposed USA military person was investigating me and, subsequently, the same individual that January 2019 was busy leading a campaign to get me taken off or banned from FACEBOOK.

About that time, I had noted that someone was flagging my FACEBOOK feed and some articles that I had posted on behalf of other news organizationsas well as some of my own articles. This was similar to blacklisting on emails that some others received from time-to-time. I figured that FACEBOOK would catch onto this abuse and around late March through April, things seemed to get better for a few weeks.

However, in the meantime, several of my progressive friends on FACEBOOK also noted the apparent flagging and blackballing on Facebook that they were receiving.

So, Readers, I turn to you.

Have you felt blacklisted or blacklisted at times on FACEBOOK and other Social Media?

Let's discuss this. Write me below and start a conversation.
