Zero Hedge -- Facebook Has Banned The Word "Honk" For Violating Their Community Standards
'...As we drift further into an amalgam of Idiocracy mixed with A Brave New World, the banning of the word "honk" – attributed to the "clown world" meme, a nihilistic joke that many are adopting to protest the last few years of liberal censorship – has been the next inevitable step toward total overreach by our new silicon valley overlords.'

What Is Concern Trolling? Watch Out For This Subtle Form Of Shaming
Urban Dictionary defines a concern troll as "someone who is on one side of the discussion, but pretends to be a supporter of the other side with 'concerns.'" In other words, it's someone who pretends to support you but couches their disagreements in the form of "concerns," which allows them to justify criticism as the result of worrying about you.

Manipulating Social Media to Undermine Democracy. (Nov. 2017)
In the absence of a comprehensive campaign to deal with this threat, manipulation and disinformation techniques could enable modern authoritarian regimes to expand their power and influence while
permanently eroding user confidence in online media and the internet as a whole.

The problems with calling Donald Trump a troll. 2016
The problem—which I describe in greater detail here and here—is that the troll frame mitigates harm and privileges the antagonist. If something is trolling, the online logic goes, then it’s not really real; it’s a game being played on the internet. If you take offense to that game, well, you’re just being oversensitive. You can always log off. Thus articulating the problem in terms of how someone reacts to harmful behavior, not the specifics of the harm itself.

Furthermore, the notion that someone is just trolling establishes political, rhetorical, and affective distance between an individual and the things they do and say. The distance necessitated by the troll frame functions as an ethical escape hatch, looping one back to the rationale that if someone takes offense to an offensive statement, that’s on them. When pressed, the so-called troll can always point towards self-reflexive performativity (“I’m not a real racist, I just play one on the internet”), and away from personal responsibility for the impact their behaviors have, regardless of what their true motivations might have been.
