Every Monday, I do a one-minute video on Instagram for Full Compass called "Craig Anderton's Monday Mix." But when they posted this video, Instagram sent a warning: "This ad isn't running because it uses profanity, implied profanity, or insulting language."

First of all, it's not an ad, it's not selling anything (harrumph). We're still trying to figure out what could possibly be considered profane or insulting language. Maybe "pink noise" or "technical reason why this is valid"? Or showing naked pictures of a DAW's console view?

The Gods of Instagram are willing to give it a manual review. Okay. But having an algorithm accuse me of something, and then having to appear in front of a virtual tribunal run by the Keepers of the Holy Algorithm, seems pretty Kafkaesque to me.
"As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect."

I used the word "attached" in an email just now, to describe a situation with a gate at our condo.
When I clicked Send, gmail told me that I had forgotten to include an attachment.

Until AI becomes much smarter, it will always be Artificial Idiocy.
It would be interesting to find out what indeed flagged you. I've had content taken down on many platforms for the most innocuous or tangential technicalities, but in retrospect, it made perfect sense from an algorithmic perspective.
My guess? The word "pink". I am serious.
"Pink?" That's profanity and/or insulting? Well take THIS, Instagram!

Deliver the smackdown!!!!
Some people might find it fun to program the big data algorithms, like they want their little puzzles to make it through the linguistic programming maze into making name and fame for those who they train.
