Statistics professor banned from google account for Hate Facts
Posted 8/22/17 , edited 8/22/17
Salil Mehta, a statistics professor who has worked with the Obama admin, had his website and google account banned for hate facts.

Apparently if you show Probability work like Hillary having lower election odds, then this is new definition of hate speech. @JulianAssange

Hate speech doesn't exist, its a social construct. But now alt left corporations have taken aim at offensive facts, because whining from a vocal minority. This is the future we live in now.
Hoping Trump goes off on them on twitter and makes them lose billions like he did amazon.

Only after four days of saying his account could not be reinstated due to 'violation of their ToS'. Obviously the 'hate speech' part considering he had stuff like this on his site http://statisticalideas.blogspot.com/2017/07/chicago-blacks-murdered-july-4.html
If the internet hadn't blown up about it, it would still be gone.

Not that it matters in a bait thread like this but Google gave no reason at all for why his stuff was shut down. The idea that it was shut down for Hate Facts(tm) is just his idea magnified by certain other news sites.

That doesn't excuse what Google did and how it stonewalled him afterwards. But seeing as this snowballed from an unspecified ToS violation to commie subversives trying to kill what people imagine free speech to be it's an important distinction to make.

The first quote I put in the OP was from Salil's own twitter, in his own words that he typed. Not 'certain other news sites'. There is no other reason. If he thinks it was because of their hate speech policies, I'll take his word for it.

OH my bad. Didn't see 'his' there.
Does your logic apply to historical events as well? Asking for a friend.

so when it happens to the right the left cheer, when it happens to the left the right are silent. I find it odd that people are so upset these days because they are under the illusion they are being silenced, when it fact they are silencing themselves, not to mention the alt-left upset over comments because of being too thin skinned to take it. I sure do miss pre 2008...

The amount of meta data Google has is overwhelming. If you have google maps, their email service, files in their cloud storage, and your search history, they know your entire life.

Maybe I'm paranoid, but the NSA doesn't collect metadata for no apparent reason.

I divorced myself from google. I don't use ANY of their service.

If you think apple, microsoft, and facebook are any better, you are in a world of many surprises. Search up Microsoft and keylogging. Look up iphone location-based ads.

I was not applying my "logic". I was stating what happened.

So unless my "logic" is the ability to observe events in sequence?
