No more faith in humanity

No not me of course. :)

These poor saps (and not just the obvious)

'No more faith in humanity': A day in the life of Berlin Facebook moderators
The Local (Germany's news in English)

or the first time, Facebook opened up its Berlin centre for deleting hateful or violent content, providing journalists with a glimpse into the workers' everyday dealings with decapitation videos, racist propaganda and child pornography.

...

In recent months, German media have published critical reports of the working conditions within Facebook's Berlin moderation centre, which is run by global services company Arvato and contracted out by Facebook. Former employers claimed that they felt psychologically strained by the work, and were not cared for by their employer, which is a division of the Bertelsmann media company.

I have no faith in humanity. Where do I apply?
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

Planet X.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

There are no humans on Planet X. And no Facebook. Instead we have Assbook.
