    But LaPlante’s job isn’t the writing or design work you might expect in today’s gig economy. She’s an independent content moderator, tasked with keeping unwanted, sometimes graphic content off the social apps and websites we use every day. “So, it's like modern-day piecework, but with the added layer of psychological stress,” she says.

    There are human moderators like LaPlante all over the world, screening the user-generated content that swells across the internet every second — and doing so largely invisibly. While artificial intelligence can increasingly spot harmful content like child pornography or extremist messaging online, researcher Sarah Roberts says “the actual social media production cycle is much more complex” than automation can currently handle.

    The problem with this is that mods and admin of Reddit, Quora, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc., are predominantly commies, SJW-socialists, and libtards that use their 'authority' to silence, censor, and ban all who are not commies, SJW-socialists, and libtards.

    You got anything to back that up or are just using that broad brush for your opinion?

    Links to rwnj opinion pieces don't count as proof. Those are someone's opinion. Even if it matches yours it doesn't prove anything.

    RWNJ? Right Wing News Journalism? So you expect the MSM/Fake News to openly admit their heroes, sugar daddies & bosses are involved in nefarious activities to censor their enemies and undermine Free Speech? Time for you to deploy the waterboarding and thumbscrews....might I suggest Rachel Maddow as your very first 'client'?
