Richardson Bros. Podcast: A Robot Legal Analyst on Rittenhouse Verdict

I wasn’t going to post this on PDD because it doesn’t relate to Duluth except that I am Duluthian and so anything I post is theoretically on bounds. But posting it to Facebook, it was immediately and erroneously blocked for “sexual solicitation.” I didn’t even say “F Kyle Rittenhouse”!

Listen to the audio too hottt for Facebook, and try to explain how it triggered the algorithm. FB said it couldn’t be appealed because Covid has decreased the review ability.

I don’t want to fight about guns! Don’t shoot me, bro! The whole bit is about the phrase “well-regulated militia,” which is, um, not related to sexual solicitation at all!

UPDATE: We win! This just in:

UPDATE 2: Continuing drama

I just cross-posted the newly-cleared post to the Richardson Bros. Facebook page and got the same shit:
