I wouldn't mind reposting this for you if you had asked me yesterday, or
about 18 hours ago, as I have an older decorated account. As soon as I
post there I have bots voting me down within seconds, inconceivable for
some to have read and voted based on content THAT fast.
But this time I tried to alert Arch users of the nearly silent
conversion of compression algorithms on arch packaging from xz (43 year
old code) to facebook's zstd (at best 3 years but really testing begins
with arch users).

Not only was the post removed and I was cursed (but no rational
arguments against what I was "reporting") when I complained later for
the unjustified removal of the post by the time I woke up this morning I
was banned, couldn't even respond to all the derogatory comments.
My funny post of wishing everyone a happy 2020 was this:

The data for comparing xz to zstd is published here, by an arch person
proposing and supporting the change.

You tell me if you would have decided the same as a logical person, but
one who pays for disk space and server bandwidth out of your pocket, not
having university mirrors around the world paying for your facebook

You pay the tab for facebook's testing of their future closed code
gadget/system doing mass storage/retrieval work, for who knows who!

If you are an arch user guinea pig you have been warned now, post
removed, reporter permanently silenced.

Sorry, I can not be of help at this time.
