2015, May

in #j5 years ago

Facebook banned me in May 2015. Vietnamese staff emailed me saying that was an accident. I was probably teaching Lego Mark that month, still. I was teaching for free at the 23/9 park during my free time. I was living at Old Ink in District 1 of Saigon, Vietnam. New Avatar in Old Ink. Sometimes, on Facebook, I would suggest high tuition for my English classes which then led to hateful comments. After that, I would suggest free classes which followed with lovely comments of how beautiful and great I was. Ironically, I did this many times and people never called me out for it. Apparently, it seems like as if they didn't take the time to contrast the different posts of mine. I was trying to make a point. Actually, many points. I made some videos about learning English. YouTube banned those videos.

Some highlights from May of 2015, as follows:

Facebook Police

2015-04-30 - Thursday - 08:54 AM PST (all times in PST unless otherwise noted) - Facebook emailed to me concerning my Joeyarnoldvn profile: "Facebook is a community where people use their authentic identities. We require everyone to provide their authentic first and last names and birthday so you always know who you're connecting with. Your account is temporarily suspended because your profile doesn’t list your authentic name...." I tried responding to the email. They never replied. I tried to tell them that my name was Joey Arnold. I sent them a picture of my passport in order to prove my identity. I think people reported me, falsely, which activated this protocol. Eventually, things went back to normal on Facebook. But every once in a while, I would be thrown in Facebook Jail for 30 days every few months or so. In 2015, it appears that Vietnamese Facebook staff were email me, assuming that their names were Vietnamese names. I was living in Vietnam and I created my @JoeyArnoldVN account around 2014 in Vietnam. So, therefore, the Vietnamese Facebook staff would probably be the ones left to supervise me to make sure I don't say anything too bad about government, China, technocracy, globalism, etc.

Facebook Mistake

2015-05-01 - Friday - 07:16 AM - Facebook emailed me: "Hi Joey, It looks like your account was suspended by mistake. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. You should now be able to log in. If you have any issues getting back into your account, please let me know. Thanks, Kiet. Community Operations. Facebook." 08:34 AM - I responded: "Was my account reported?

I have 5,000 friends and over 6,000 followers. I am a teacher and some people do not like me.

I think people reported me because they do not like me because I do charity work in Vietnam.

People are jealous of me.

Facebook has a reporting system that weeds out spam and bad people, but it sometimes weeds out the good people too.

I know some web design and I admire FB founder Mark, and I know the people that work for FB have difficult jobs.

Thank you for fixing my FB.

I logged on today with no problems.

Joey Arnold."

2015-05-03 - Sunday - 03:05 AM - Thuy Tran messaged me on Facebook: "I am in Vietnam." She was my student in 2015.

SHe is from Pakistan and was probably learning English.

2015-05-13 - Wednesday - 08:09 AM - Facebook - 78 Likes - 11 Comments - 6 Shares - A student complimented me today and it made me feel so good. It gave me added confidence which accelerates the efficiency of my skills
Once upon a time, back in around 2000, when I was 15 years old in America, I began writing Encouragement Article (EA) playing cards and stories (articles, papers, essays, small books) for friends, family, & fellow students around me, at church, and especially in high school
Selfishness diminishes as I age. This means that I am encouraging people more often as I get older. I enjoy making people smile and laugh. I like drawing pictures of people like a cartoonist. I like helping people discover their dreams for their lives. I counsel people in order to push them into practical steps towards tangible goals that can be attained sooner than later. I have many hobbies. I like to write, sing, dance, talk, play, work, teach, debate, listen, and love others as Christ does. I make videos and I live like a Joey, a baby kangaroo
This is who I am. My character emphasizes more on grace and less on justice. As I grow up, I try to leave my obsession on justice in order to focus and major more on grace, which is rather more innovative and creative than you can even imagine, possibly
However, I forget who I am a little bit sometimes and people remind me about who I am. That is what community is all about. We need each other because we lose ourselves and we forget who we are sometimes. We forget how special our skills, talents, gifts, and personalities are
Furthermore, we let others destroy us. We begin believing in the negative lies that people tell us. It is good listen to lies but it is not good to believe in those lies. Don't believe people when they call you ugly
You are beautiful and you can continue to increase in beauty, talent, skills, potential, abilities, charisma, love, grace, gifts, personality, integrity, patience, hope, transparency, independence, mojo, flexibility, soft skills, hospitality, care, vocals, speed, strength, courage, comedy, knowledge, wisdom, and humility

Some people said that was expensive, that is $20 USD per hour, as a suggestion, which was an average price when compared with other classes, centers, teachers. I replied to some of those comments with, "Please leave." I said those exact words repeately. Some of the Vietnamese said that I must be joking. They probably are not familiar with how much classes can cost. Thom Trinh wrote: "Wow. It is expensive." Truong Bui wrote: "Joey has the right to offer a course with the tuition he wants. If people find it too expensive, they dont use his service. it's the law of market. We dont need to get into an arguement."

2015-05-16 - Saturday - 11:50 PM - Blogspot - Facebook - Schools generally schedule teachers for 10 - 30 hours of classroom teaching a week: at least 90 minutes each day, normally: some teachers teach about 3 hours a day, normally at night: depends on the school. I came to Vietnam in 2012 with a 3 months tourist visa. In 2013, I extended that visa for 3 more months in Saigon. I didn't have to leave Vietnam. I extended my visa a 2nd time as well. After that, I went to Cambodia for a visa run one day in August 2013. I'm a freelance teacher in Q.1, TP.HCM. I went to Cambodia for only the 2nd time this year, 2015. In 2014, I extended my visa for the 5th or 6th time for about $210. Each time you extend the visa, it can cost more. It costs more with the travel agencies but it also saves time as well.

Locked Out

2015-05-27 - Wednesday - 02:04 PM - Blogspot - 2015-05-28 Thu 2 AM OI Q1 SG VN JSA: my Facebook profile account was frozen locked due to complaints and due to automatic spam protection protocols that Facebook has. I was sending promotional messages to groups, pages, & to accounts, as I normally do, but I was also sending multiple photo attached messages to some of the groups that featured spam from other users as well.

Now, I am sending my ID to a Facebook box and via my Gmail. I am also going to try to play the My Friend's Photos matching Game in order to regain access to my own account.

In the future, I may diminish my aggressiveness on Facebook. I am emotional and I have felt these things before. I don't want to promise but I am always transitioning into a better person in what i do in regards to these kinds of things. There is more to be said about all of these things. I want to help people. I am against bad kinds of spam but I believe that my kind of spam is good. Hey, it is a long story and it would take a long time to explain what I mean by this.
