I shouldn't laugh, because this is serious, and points to the real need for human oversight, but it's also pretty funny. "I teach courses in Python and Pandas. Never mind that the first is a programming language and the second is a library for data analysis in Python. Meta's AI system noticed that I was talking about Python and Pandas, assumed that I was talking about the animals (not the technology), and banned me." What's awful is that when he appealed, Meta doubled down with its AI process and banned him for life.
