The account was blocked last week. According to De Hond this happened after several dozen LinkedIn users had reported his messages. He was informed that he had violated the rules of use of the platform.
LinkedIn now announces that the texts that De Hond placed conflict with the policy of the medium. “By this we mean that no contributions are allowed that directly contradict the guidelines of leading global health organizations and public health authorities,” says LinkedIn.
De Hond finds that the rules of LinkedIn are too strict and “restricts professional discussions” about the coronavirus. He lets it be known that “from now on just as sharp and clear” in his conclusions. “Clear to you, but in such a way that hopefully they will stay within those policies.”
De Hond regularly posts links on LinkedIn and other social media to articles on his website, in which he is critical of the Cabinet’s corona measures. On the basis of scientific literature and his own data analyses, the pollster concludes, among other things, that the other half rule is nonsense.
