I hope they're working on fine-tuning it. I administrate a Facebook group on
gardening, and we have regular problems with Facebook's AI flagging words
like "hoe". It particularly gets flagged in comments. Someone will post a
picture and say "what is this tool called?" and someone else will say
"stirrup hoe" and within seconds FB is threatening permanent bans. I mean,
if you can't discuss basic gardening tools in a gardening group, where can
you? The other admins and I dispute each false flag via FB's rather baroque
dispute system, but I don't think we've had any response. Jane Scanned by
McAfee and confirmed virus-free. Find out more here: https://bit.ly/2zCJMrO
