So, in other words, Facebook suspects / expects unrest and even violence during the election. Facebook knows that it's allowing gasoline to be sprayed onto the developing conflict. But, they promise to turn off the gasoline after it explodes.

That's very nice of them. I'd like to know how they plan to do that, exactly -- vet and regulate millions of users and fake bot accounts. Shut down the whole platform?

@Phil Landmeier (ᚠ) You don't have to believe, they've said it out loud. Then-CBS CEO Les Moonves speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference on February 29, 2016:
Man, who would have expected the ride we’re all having right now? This is pretty amazing…. Who would have thought that this circus would come to town?

But, you know—it may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS, that’s all I got to say.

So what can I say? It’s—you know, the money’s rolling in, and this is fun.

@Doc Edward Morbius Interesting. I was intuiting from my knowledge. It's nice to see confirmation, but I wish it was confirmation of another kind, like that we've successfully built a self-sustaining colony on Mars or something. Sigh.

Yeah, Moonves was a nut, but I didn't realize he was this crazy. It's one thing to think it, and another to say it aloud. Whew. Lordy, lordy.
