This notion of collective guilt and collective punishment for that collective guilt is, perhaps, the single most toxic fruit of the downward spiral we have seen recently into weaponized identity politics.
Everyone needs to show up on November 6th (that's in just 6 weeks and 2 days!) and vote like the continued existence of your country depends on it, BECAUSE IT DOES.

Given everything that is flying around with respect to the accusations being leveled at Brett Kavanaugh, I want to take a few moments to point out some things that people might not like.
And not liking these observations has nothing to do with politics.
It's about being human.
Human consciousness, identity, ego and the mechanics of memory all intertwine in ways that are not fully understood by anyone... but there are some things that have been learned along the way.
And they're not pretty. They're hard to hear, and harder to accept, but they're true.

It appears to be "interacting with fringe accounts" which gets your account caught up into this.
This is the algorithmic equivalent of systematically enforcing the schoolyard idea of "cooties".
It's not hard to see how such a system could be weaponized via selective enforcement and categorization, and even to "distribute the blame" by not controlling for malicious mass-misuse of reporting features by some in their own epistemic bubbles.
