I just came across a byte that was deligitimize indigenous peoples day which was pretty upsetting to me. I had to make the decision between not commenting so I don’t boost the engagement of the byte, and commenting to express my disagreement and explain why it’s important to let indigenous people be heard.
I would like for comments to not be factored into the algorithm because I would like to express disagreement without promoting the byte as a byproduct.
Please don’t discuss in this thread whether it’s worth my time to leave the comment because it’ll just fall on deaf ears and people don’t change or whatever. That is for me to decide. That’s not the point of this post.
Controversial content gets more comments, but that doesn’t mean it’s good content. Controversy shouldn’t be rewarded and promoted.
