Once you decide to remove someone, who do you decide to remove and why?  Are there any other factors that control your decision?

“Facebook Removes Accounts Linked to Duterte’s Former Social-Media Manager,” The Wall Street Journal, March 30, 2018.  Accounts removed for “coordinated inauthentic behavior.”

As the platform owner, you can either open your site to all comers, or establish objective standards to limit who may and may not use your platform.  Are there risks if your standards aren’t sufficiently objective, and a tinge of subjectivity creeps in?

Governance (to the extent you establish objective standards, and decide who you let “in”), and Information, and Compliance (to the extent you kick people off).  But are there other controls on your decisions, when you become a large social platform?
