Steve, I suspect you have seen this piece from December...but just in case you haven’t. “LinkedIn hit with censorship accusations for removing critics of government Covid policies”(https://www.thedrum.com/news/2021/12/17/linkedin-hit-with-censorship-accusations-removing-critics-government-covid-policies). Here is the post from LinkedIn where I came across the article: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/stevenschaerer_linkedin-hit-with-censorship-accusations-activity-6929884638786002945-gpSP

I have never liked LinkedIn,going back 10 years, though they do have good technical tutorial courses with professional tutors but to be honest I’d be happier if those courses were on another platform because I don’t even use LinkedIn any longer.

Just deleted my Linkedin account... reason given -censorship.

They don't care!

Just closed my account there. We should all do the same. They should feel it in their pockets the only sensitive part in their bodies.

My last post got me kicked off of Medium. Same thing: no response to my request for specifics. It's almost like they don't want to be held to account for their behavior or something, lol.

Steve - why bother with rhetorical questions anymore?

You have the heft to just tell the truth outright. Instead of titling this "Why won't LinkedIn tell me the proof that what I posted was inaccurate or misleading?" you should have just titled it "LinkedIn is censoring me for telling the truth, and this is their lie to justify it".

Stop pretending they are enforcing their terms of service, or even think they do. They know full well exactly what they are doing - call them out on it.

Steve, you are so close to realizing the truth of why they won't respond.

The leftist that work at all these big tech firm have been programmed to believe that you are a sub-human for not wanting to follow the enlightened narrative. Therefore they don't need to respond to you.

This is the exact same thing the National Socialist Party did in the 1930s to the most educated country in the world.

Stop confusing "leftists" with people that just go along to get along. These aren't "leftists", and they aren't "conservatives". They are following orders, from fascists.

They MIGHT think they are leftists, but they aren't. Some might even think they are conservatives - they aren't. Principles aren't even a part of their job, they just follow orders and carry them out.

One thing I've learned here, in Silicon Valley, in the last 2 years, is how pathetic my colleagues are. We all make a ton of money, I guess most of these assholes are so far in debt and so desperate for money, they sold out all their principles and critical thinking too.

Haha, 20 years ago, a lot of had principles. We wouldn't put up or accept censorship. Now I have to find a company out of state that, well, at least promises to have principles. Google used to "don't be evil" - they're one of the most evil companies here now. Their motto is DEFINITELY "be evil" now.

I’m a veteran journalist in Canada and I’ve been following both the COVID-19 and the experimental injections stories.

I am BLOWN AWAY by the arrogance, censorship and plain and simple f-you attitude of the regulatory agencies, governments and hi tech companies. The MSM is complicit as hell.

These pricks remind me of the smirking SS officers at the Nazi death camps who felt they were unaccountable and untouchable.

The world has always been messed up, but never have I seen so much corruption and sleaze like today.

And Steve, never give up! You not only created much awareness around the world, but helped save countless lives … and for that, all of humanity thanks you.

No offense veteran journalist, but I've seen your colleagues in my country lie us into 3 wars, and into bombing 4 more nations beyond that. I can see our "journalists" are propagandists - are you JUST figuring this out?

The CBC censors people on the regular, and have been doing that for at LEAST a decade. Now you're acting shocked that your profession is filled with liars and sellouts? Really?

There might be a dozen real journalists in the west at this point and none of them work for a "reliable source". Bana al-Abed was an Mi6 construct, Assad wasn't gassing people in Douma, and probably wasn't in Ghouta. Hussein didn't have a weapons of mass destruction program and the intelligence agencies knew it, Qaddafi wasn't about to cause a humanitarian crisis in Libya, the Skripals weren't poisoned by the FSB, Ukraine didn't have a revolution in 2014, it was a coup, Russia didn't "hack our election".

It's been 20 years of complete grade A triple distilled bullshit down here in the "land of the free" for "news" - is Canada really any different? What about all those violent, misogynistic, white supremacists in Ottowa? There's no journalists to the north either.

I can see your news, in small amounts. It's like reading the rantings of a bunch of compulsive liars that think that their nonsense is believable because their readers must be much stupider than they are..

BTW - want scoop? Pierre Trudeau was the biggest traitor of Canada. He's the Woodrow Wilson of Canada. He's the reason your country is in debt - he sold your nation to a central bank for a song. I wonder if your nation or my nation will go bankrupt first?

HI Richard, you make great points ... RIGHT ON!!! I've spoken out against the media BS for years. I'm well aware.

See my latest blog on how the MSM has whored out, and is the main reason we're in the mess we're in today. [I've just added [March 29 2022] this link to the original post.

Had the same problem with LinkedIn. They refused to tell me which comment they didn't like. I didn't post the comment to please LinkedIn in the first place. I posted the truth. So, I stopped using LinkedIn. PS: Youtube is now on board with censorship. They no longer allow us to "share" videos on conservative channels. Youtube also deletes "likes" on a regular basis. Social media is vile. Hoping Elon Musk comes out soon with his alternatives.

LinkedIn is just another part of big tech social media and one of their roles is to censor and spread propaganda. If we can keep using these "services", *we* are supporting that censorship and propaganda.

Maybe it's time to lock these miscreants out of our computers?

Are you planning to file a lawsuit? If not, why not? Berenson is suing Twatter, John Stossel is suing FascistBook, and there are probably other suits as well.

The a-holes at LinkedIn also restricted my account about 3 months ago. I decided that fighting the tyranny enabled via Corona fear porn was too important to just keep quiet and play nice on that "platform". I'm also on Substack but I want to see LinkedIn lose big time for their left wing B.S.

BTW, I reported a guy who commented that before the "vaccines", 15% of people who got Corona were dying, which is of course some of the worst "misinformation" ever re Corona. Of course LI replied back and said the comment was fine and dandy.

Have you considered Class Action?

I wish people would wake up and STOP USING these ridiculous sites. Any site that blatantly controls ANYONE'S speech should be avoided like the plague and if they use advertisers, boycott those and let them know why.
