Article note: Sloppy keyword recognition spam detection resulting in a 10-day sms ban with no notification. I'm cool with effective, clear spam prevention efforts - the POTS network is nigh-unusable because of the level of spam these days - but this kind of dumb shit that silently breaks low-threshold innocent behavior shouldn't be tolerated. Alternatively, if carriers and platforms keep doing a shitty job with platform management _and_ engaging in invasive behavior with the content they carry, we could trade a little more spam to solve a bunch of other problems and switch to a legal regime that protects blind carriers but makes them liable for anything they parse. Incentivize the fuck out of e2e crypto and non-retention policies.
