Social Media Moderators Required To Sign PTSD Disclosure Forms

edited January 2020 in Off-Topic
(Pertaining to YouTube & Facebook employees)

“"I understand the content I will be reviewing may be disturbing. It is possible that reviewing such content may impact my mental health, and it could even lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)," the statement read.”

That bad?


  • I grew up Irish and Catholic. That must surely count.
  • I read the requirement-to-sign as an anticipatory first step of a hold harmless defense on part of the corporation. "Complainant knew or should have known ..." (However, I am not a legal scholar, just predisposed to be skeptical about things employees are required to sign.)

    Apologies for a nonsensical story & link. Things sometimes look better late at night than next morning (and I miss Ted’s positive influence).

    Nonetheless - glad some found value in the story. My quick take is these companies are doing a bit of a disservice to those who actually served their country under wartime conditions and must suffer the real PTSD consequences.

    There’s also, perhaps, a message here as to how sharply the advent of “social media” (somewhat of an oxymoron) has altered our social / political landscape - not for the better I fear.
  • Too late for Zuckerberg, everyone already knows he's crazy along with bought.
  • I had 16 years of Catholic Education which is an experience itself !
