Meteorologist
  • I have been in the broadcast media business since 1984 and retired a few years back because of an 80% hearing loss. I am a Meteorologist with a membership in the AMS/NWA along with being a Skywarn storm spotter. I have a news personality page with over 5400 followers and my personal page with over 4000

    I have been in the broadcast media business since 1984 and retired a few years back because of an 80% hearing loss. I am a Meteorologist with a membership in the AMS/NWA along with being a Skywarn storm spotter. I have a news personality page with over 5400 followers and my personal page with over 4000. Also I own/admin 23 groups and 15 communities. I post fast and share fast from my news personality page and it is all Meteorology/weather/forecasting/hurricanes/tornadoes. However Facebook makes me change my password twice a week and puts me in their automated jail for 2 weeks per month since Hurricane Maria hit PR. This started when I had the perfect radar shot of Maria hitting PR and as I started sharing to my groups Facebook claims that radar/satellite/weather models/ weather in general is spam. I am posting to my groups and to groups that weather geeks or Meteorology related. I went this route so I would not have to retire 100%. We all know Meteorology is not spam and I am not a big fan of corporate structure. So for me it is a personal war for me and Facebook. There is no customer service or way of complaining. I sent them my certification but still they claim they are protecting my readers from SPAM. I think I know more about what my readers want than they do otherwise they would not have joined my communities and groups. Yes I post fast to be efficient. However they claim weather is spam. I am sick of this and take it as a personal attack as I paid my dues in college and on television and radio. Now what???

    I am a 34 year media vet that was forced into retirement 5 years ago because of my health. I have done voice-overs, radio, television news, meteorology, traffic reporting. I have been doing meteorology and Hurricane season for the last 20 years. I post on my community pages then share to my groups and Facebook's automated bots put me in Facebook jail for posting to fast and to much. It is censorship. Mark is not into Earth Science and he could care less. They say the guidelines are being broken by my posting weather. There are no set guidelines on news and weather. I spent 6 months or every 2 weeks in their automated jail last year. They claim they are protecting the Public? From weather? Who the hell does he think he is? Some rich bitch. I spend hours per day researching, forecasting and for what jail? I would love to have a screaming match with him. I would win because he does not know meteorology. I am in my 50's and sick of their bots. I want someone to scream at. Facebook does not know what the hell they are doing and I am sick of their shit.
