Excellent. Move to Parler. It is free is every respect. Use your FB page to advertise that you are moving there. Many other good conservative sites have done so. Post on FB only after after having posted on Parler a few hours earlier. As for the "Tech Tyrants," we are the product being sold, so we need to move our attractiveness elsewhere.

And Pravda probably censors their stuff too. The NY Times selects what hooey they want to print. Come on, guys. If you want to use a particular "news" venue, you play by their rules, unfair as you may think it to be. (And they all are slanted.) But getting the feds involved in vetting what a private company promulgates is crazy dangerous, especially for a nominally religious institution. Thirty Years' War, anyone?

FB claims to be a platform, but behaves as a publisher. The Difference: a platform should not cannot legally control content. Whereas a publisher can. It is a different beast. Legally. That's why Dorsey last week was skating on very thin ice.

Wrong. As Diogenes71 already stated, there is a difference between a "platform" and a "publisher". Platforms cannot legally be held accountable for content their users publish, while publishers can. NY Times is a publisher, and they can be sued for publishing false information (see: Nick Sandmann). The problem is when you have so-called platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, acting as publishers by censoring user's content.
