Facebook Has Been Spam Marking Posts All Day

Spam

There have been multiple reports that Facebook has been marking totally innocuous posts as spam for the past several hours. I've had that happen myself several times today. Although there have been multiple conspiracy theories about that, ranging from attacks of nefarious people flagging posts to the idea that it is because Facebook sent many of their content-checkers home due to the coronavirus, it apparently is just a bug.  According to Facebook's VP of Integrity, it's in the process of being fixed, and the posts will all be returned. As far as I can tell the only thing all the posts being blocked have in common is that they have links to external sites. And we were recently told that Facebook believes all the posts have been restored.
