A Facebook gardening group has been flagged multiple times for violating the social media platform's community standards for its often use of the term "hoe."

Of course, a hoe is one of gardening's oldest tools, but Facebook's algorithm flags the topic for "harassment and bullying," and keeps pulling posts from the group WNY Gardeners page.
