Facebook informed Twitchy yesterday that it removed a post from our Facebook page for violating Facebook’s Community Standards. The post included this photo:

(Editors note: The photo posted by Twitchy included the “censored by Twitchy” oval. We did not post an uncensored photo.)

An uncensored version of the above photo appears on a Twitter feed that President Barack Obama’s official Twitter account subscribes to.

This morning we received a message from Facebook saying it removed a second post from our Facebook page. The message said we are being blocked from posting to our account for 24 hours and may be permanently banned from Facebook if we violate Facebook’s standards again. The message did not identify which post violated Facebook’s standards.

When we try to post to our Facebook page, we get the following message:

You recently posted something that violates Facebook policies, so you’re temporarily blocked from using this feature. Learn More.To keep from getting blocked again, please make sure you’ve read and understand Facebook’s Community Standards.

The block will be active for 23 hours more.

Twitchy was unable to find a contact information for Facebook on its page. So we complained to Facebook via its Twitter page:

Some Twitchy readers think we are being targeted by liberals who are filing bogus complaints in an attempt to get us thrown into Facebook gulag:



Twitchy is no longer blocked from posting on Facebook. Twitchy’s posts were accidentally removed during Facebook’s review process.

Many thanks to our contact at Facebook for addressing the issue.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to Twitchy readers for your support. Twitchy readers are the best!

Many thanks to Glenn Reynolds and William Jacobson for writing about the Facebook block.

Please make sure you’re following Instapundit and LegInsurrection on Twitter.

      No kidding! I’ll be right ahead of you Facebook sucks dead hippopotamus azz.

    • MileHighinAZ

      I think valid reasons have already been given, and I’m going out on a limb here, and predicting the demise of FB, eventually. I left over a year ago, and would never go back, for any reason. Primary cause: no matter what security software is in place, your computer is at great risk for just about any form of virus, etc., as well as identity theft.

      • sgb1

        I’m glad you mentioned the security. I hadn’t thought about it. I have had a lot of viruses over the last couple of years. HMMM. Maybe I’ll quit.

      • owenmagoo

        “I’m going out on a limb here, and predicting the demise of FB, eventually…”
        from the outside looking in…never had an FB account, never will…
        it is the 8 track of social media. I want to ‘communicate’ with someone?
        I see them face to face, or use a phone. eventually, I can see myself teleconferencing, but only because society has taken me there and made it easy.
        all those celebs/pols with fake subscribers…take a look at one’s own list, and I’d be pretty certain that 60% of the people on you list have no real business knowing your life’s details.
        I’m sure there is some comfort that one can block a viewer, yet the data is being retained, forever. good luck in all future public endeavors, while keeping your life’s details private. not gonna happen.

            That’s mean. I don’t like this at all. If you have ever had a family member with a devastating mental illness you would think twice about what you think is funny.

        • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

          That’s why you don’t give your real information to FB. Only the people you really know know the truth.

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        You can get those type of viruses anywhere on the internet just about.

        • $1718659

          Really? So you go there daily just to see what’s up, right? What a maroon. I guess you never heard of virus scanners. But that doesn’t stop the other vices at facebook, like the data mining and identity theft. have at it!

          • wolf

            Facebook is no more likely to give you a virus than 90% of the internet. It’s a useful service that you don’t care for. Get over it. And data mining and identify theft are things the end user is responsible for avoiding, for the most part. Any info on facebook about you is something you volunteered.

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            Exactly, and I don’t volunteer anything that would land me in trouble with that since my husband was in the military and knows a bit about covering one’s arse.

          • wolf

            Seriously. As a privacy advocate, Facebook has some issues, but they All can be avoided by, if nothing else, going to the EFF website and poking around for articles on FB, or just googling “facebook privacy” or similar and looking for articles on protecting your privacy on facebook. For the most part, just practice basic safe browsing, don’t download things from sites you don’t know, etc, and you’ll be fine. People get all worked up about social networking, like it’s the Devil himself. It’s completely absurd.

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            I just sit back and laugh when people get all worked up about things they don’t know.

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            I can’t stop laughing at you, but anyway. I have a virus scanner, and a computer tech husband. Did it ever occur to you people create viruses to go AROUND virus scanners? Yes, they do!

            Before you call someone a “maroon” or “moron”, look in the mirror, sweetie.

      • $1718659

        Finally another soul who GETS this facebook crap. Thank you!

    • Garth Haycock

      No need for a reason to dump facebook. Just do it.

      • Russ Mirmelstein

        Just did it! :)

    • Slackdragon

      Give Google+ a shot. It is honestly the best social media sight around right now. Its concept of having “circles” of friends that you can speak to is amazing. Some things I want to say on Facebook, I don’t want plastered to all of Facebook. WIth G+ I can be as narrow as 1 specific user or open to the public.

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        Umm, you can do that with Facebook too. You can have 1 person see a post or however many you choose, all your friends, or public. You can make lists so you can restrict what people can and can’t see, or you can manually type in who you want to see your post or part of your profile. It’s the same thing..

        • wolf

          Exactly. G+ circles are a bit more obvious and user friendly, though.

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            I still prefer Facebook since none of my friends use G+.

          • wolf

            Sure. And at this point, using the most widely used social network is pretty much like having an email account before social networks became popular, or having a phone before the internet. I always laugh at the luddites who think that all of this social networking nonsense is just a phase.

            Yes, it’s going to pass. When something better comes along. The world is never going to say to itself, “Damn, I miss the days when I couldn’t keep up with everyone I know by scrolling down a convenient screen once a day or so. I think I’ll sell my computer and go back to using the phone for all my communication!” Never. Well, except that the phone is a good way to use social networking services, of course. But then, google glass is coming out at some point, and then what will be the point of carrying a phone?

      • http://www.facebook.com/peggy.kempfwilloughby Peggy Kempf Willoughby

        google supports liberals like Obama. I will go kicking and screaming before I support them, but ALL the area schools are buying into their ‘free’ stuff. More ways to indoctrinate us to the liberal theology. you google anything a positive article about the left pops up and negative about the right wing. People deny it, google denies it but it is a fact you can check out yourself.

  • Paul C.

    Facebook is over rated and their stock sucks.

  • Guest

    What most likely happened is lefties are bombarding Facebook with phony abuse reports on your posts.

  • Conrad2010

    I shared this page on FB. I may get blocked. Freedom reigns.

    • YERMOM182

      I shared it too

  • Kathi Barry

    This happened to me several times back when Rush Limbaugh was being attacked by Sleep Number, etc.. over the Fluke thing. One thing I learned, all of the same people post on all of those same pages, they have several names, when you block one, they come right back. All they have to do is say that you said something they didn’t like, and your freaking page is locked up. This happened to me three times and I never even said anything inappropriate.

    I finally realized, if I was going to go after the left, I would have to do it with a fake FB account, otherwise, my real account will be canceled. FB sucks.

    • lizzie893833

      And that’s why I have multiple fake FB accounts.

    • News Reporter

      I use fake FB accounts because I am a rare conservative who regularly comments on left wing biased local television news websites. Liberals will use your information or just your name to perform identity theft, send junk mail to your residence, vandalize your residence, harassing phone calls, publish your name on left wing blogs, etc. All it takes is your name. They assume you live locally. My last name is very unusual. Not that hard to pay a few bucks for background checks to get everything they need to ruin your life. They would attack and protest my business if they knew. Yes, FB sucks. Hide ALL of your FB information from strangers.

      • John W. Kerr

        I have been banned from so many popular liberal marxist HATE sites its not funny! I used numerous email addresses and post namesI never use curse words but freely use Demoncrat, Obamanation that makes desolation, idiot, fool, sheeple, koolaide drinker, deficate, etc. and other “Merrian Webster” english language synonyms acronyms etc. Pseudo-intelligence NOT intellectual knowledge is all the left has other than vile cursings and hate. Its like grades school or a sociopathic mental ward in their web habitations! Hate and censorship is their only defense against conservatives, christians, constitutionalistic historians. They are a blight on the face of the earth, but we still must love them though enemies they are without reason, morals, or direction other than the dark abyss!!!

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        Wow. I am so sorry that you aren’t able to leave your house because of the huge left wing conspiracy against you. Maybe if you weren’t trying to take rights away from people, deny people the right to vote, keep women from being in control of their own bodies and the like, people wouldn’t be upset with you.

        And besides, none of you “good christian conservatives” are supposed to be on facebook anyway. It doesn’t discriminate against its employees. For that matter, you shouldn’t be on twitter either since it, as a corporation, doesn’t discriminate against its employees either.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jeremy.krause Jeremy Krause

    That is how the libs work, I have been blocked by a number of liberal pages because i call them out to cite facts and act like adults ( instead of arguing with 3rd grade insults, prove me wrong ) and they simply block me and continue to post on the page as if I tucked tail and ran. Thats the only way the liberal mental flea brained sheep can win an argument.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000564429818 Pieter Stegman

      The best way to argue with the left is by using force and violence. That is what they listen to and understand. They are cowards to begin with and any show of force will get them to run screaming like a third grade sissy.

      • G Bolton

        I agree. They are bullies, and the only thing that scares a bully is the threat of someone turning the tables on them

    • loriaw07

      I was horrified to learn that there is a facebook page called Soldiers Deserve to Die-They are Murderers…I spent an evening arguing with their small commie brains in defense of our wonderful men and women in uniform. Twice I posted a great article by an actor from CSI who plays the coroner, a very Pro American, Pro Military article and twice it was removed. The next thing I know, the like button and comment button were removed from me for use, however the “share” button remained active. What a bunch of cowards!!!

      • Imperial73

        Whats the article?? Ill post it for you till i get kicked off too. F ’em.

        • loriaw07

          Robert A. Hall is an actor. He plays the coroner on CSI if you watch that show. He also is a Marine Vietnam War veteran, but does not mention that he had his legs blown off in that war. This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the United States of America .
          “I’m 63 and I’m Tired”by Robert A. Hall

          I’m 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked hard since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.
          I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
          I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought Mc Mansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble use their own money to help them.
          I’m tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America provided to them. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have:

          1. the economy of Zimbabwe,

          2. the freedom of the press of China

          3. the crime and violence of Mexico,

          4. the tolerance for Christian people of Iran

          5. the freedom of speech of Venezuela ..

          I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Sharia’s law tells them to.
          I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.
          I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly in an all-knowing government.
          I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must not complain when Saudi Arabia uses the money we pay for their oil to fund mosques and madras Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.
          I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.
          I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don’t think gay people choose to be gay, but I #@*# sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from “cool” people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.
          I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially those who aren’t working, but living on welfare or crime. What’s next? Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”? And, no, I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I’m willing to fast track citizenship for any Hispanic who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the kind of citizens we need.
          I’m tired of the trashing of our military by latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here’s a deal for those folks. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, while the critics of our military can be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia because the girls were Christian — then we’ll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.
          I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats has looted the public treasury for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet.
          I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about “innocent” mistakes, “stupid” mistakes or “youthful” mistakes, when all of us know they think their only mistake was getting caught.
          Speaking of poor, I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement who have air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.
          I’m real tired of people, rich or poor, who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
          Yes, I’m tired, but I’m also glad to be 63, mostly because I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter.
          Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate. THANK YOU DISQUS AND IMPERIAL 73!!! I wasn’t sure how to get this to you or if you will receive it at all but worth a try. Please let me know if you do and if you can get it to the creepy SDTD-TAM. I bet you will be blocked also from commenting on their page. Thank you again. God Bless you and the United States! :) [email protected] Lori

    Correct me if I am wrong on this but….FB is now a PUBLICLY traded company…no longer a privately owned company. As a publicly owned company it would seem to me that they are now subject to the jurisdiction of the Constitution…aka 1st Amendment? I was slapped on the wrist for calling myself a “Cracker”….not anyone else and not in direct reference to Obama….by FB. I wish there was another social site we could go to that doesn’t use dictator tactics…

    • tvonthebrain

      The 1st amendment does not apply to companies in any way,shape or form. It merely applies to GOVERNMENT creating laws regarding speech. This is not applicable here, as Facebook has it’s own terms and conditions, as does any business.

      Facebook has an OBLIGATION to keep nudity off of it’s site. It’s a family site, with children who don’t need to see that.

        A lot of the posts on Facebook aren’t child-friendly, so maybe the parents ought not to let their children onto Facebook. I have some dirty jokes on my FB that kids should not read, but I’m not going to take them down because one kid whose parents don’t police their internet might see it.

        • Love of Country

          I’ve never so much as visited a single page on FB. While I’m not particularly interested in making my own page, I do find myself wondering about old friends I’ve lost contact with over the years as well as learning more about cool new acquaintances I’ve met online such as yourself. But I never get past the little paranoid nuisance of registering first. I guess I’m just weird like that, huh?

          BTW, I posted a few pics for your enjoyment when I replied to one of your posts the other day but since I didn’t include any links it took about 24 hours before the moderators actually posted it …. hope you got to see them and/or use some of them.

    Facebook needs to square up on this. Kinda like when people going through custody battles use CPS improperly. This can happen on any social media site because the same coward liberals ganging up on you would do it wherever you go. Facebook needs to put some protection on pages like yours so that they don’t use automatic blocking based on # of complaints (if that happens) or let a junior/amateur FB team member review childish complaints about your page and think they merit action.

    • tvonthebrain

      Facebook is VERY MUCH a family site, and has an obligation to keep garbage like that which was posted OFF of it’s site.

      They gave a very clear explanation of why they were blocked… They violated the terms of service… SPECIFICALLY:

      “You will not post content that: is hate speech, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.”
      This isn’t a ‘freedom of speech’ thing, it’s a decency thing. You don’t post garbage like that on family sites.

      • Jesse Malkin

        tvonthebrain, we appreciate that you are commenting here, but if you are going to do so please be honest. We did NOT post a nude photo. We did not post an indecent photo. We posted a photo of a woman with a huge “censored by Twitchy” oval covering her chest.

    They are regularly banning/blocking conservative posts and even bible studies. However, when we “report” disgusting pages such as http://www.facebook.com/nooneabove, the response is they are in no way violating terms of service against hate, etc. They have their own agenda, and ours had better not be of a conservative nature in opposition to their own or you’re out!

    Facebook has staff that FULLY UNDERSTAND you are Michelle Malkin. They know the high number of page visits and that you are a high profile individual. Your page is internally flagged as high profile, supervisor approval only. If we sent a massive number of MM readers to Madonna, Cher, Ellen Barkin or Obama’s FB page to report images, do you really think FB would shut them down for 24 hours or threaten to ban? NO! FB staff know everything. It’s not only the liberals reporting, it’s the Facebook staff intentionally allowing this to happen. My guess is that FB staff has friends in the underworld (liberals, progressives, hollywood, politicians) pulling favors.

    Here is what I wrote about this on FB: You may not like her but it’s an act of
    cowardice to block a voice you disagree with just because you can. I
    value Michelle’s insight and ability to highlight differing views.
    Besides isn’t that what the ignore button or Hide button is for.

    Facebook You have done a great job of giving people the tools to block
    people and feeds they don’t want to view. Honestly Chill out. We have
    the intellect strong enough to push back against people we don’t like. I
    am sure some of these people or groups who might have complained are
    wanting Facebook to do their dirty work because they don’t have the
    personal intellect to win the debate in the arena of ideas and
    community. So they do what cowards always do, they take offense where
    there is no offense, they pretend to be bullied when no one is bullying
    them. they turn to the authority and become the very bully they accuse
    others of being. Please don’t interfere by blocking this because
    together all our voices, liked and disliked make a grand chorus of
    community that empowers everyone.

I was banned from the page immediately and told I was permanently banished to Trollville. This is how the Obama Train runs. No one is allowed to criticize at these pages so that THEIR trolls won’t learn the truth. They shield their Moonies from all criticism so as not to tarnish King Obamas crown.

On this page: http://twitchy.com/2012/10/04/oof-kitchenaid-mocks-obamas-dead-grandma-attempts-damage-control/#comment-673345816 left a comment with a question asking about Mr. Obama’s mother. A fellow poster replied with a link to a valid article that was neither offensive nor slanderous. But, his post was “hidden” because of complaints. Now it is gone altogether. So, before getting ticked at FB for their automated system that libs abuse, why don’t you fix yours?

    • http://www.facebook.com/walker.bennett.5 Walker Bennett

      Yep, Facebook is just playing by the same rules as Twitchy. Block and censor any facts that you don’t want people to see. Twitchy is more offended by numbers than pictures though.

      • redheadgrl

        It’s just kind of funny twitchy getting all upset over abuse of an automated complaint system, when they are using something very similar to censor comments from their readers.

        • Jesse Malkin

          we are aware of the issue and will fix it as soon as we can.

    • Jesse Malkin

      Our spam filter has been over-active recently. We have reached out to DISQUS for assistance. Not sure this is the “same thing” as FB blocking us. We have not accused anyone of violating Twitchy’s standards.

      • redheadgrl

        thanks for looking into it. I really like Twitchy. It seems if someone disagrees with a post, they can report it as abusive, even if it is just 4 simple words such as “is Bush running again?”. I understand the need for an automated system, but liberals that don’t agree with thoughts that are different from theirs can have comments banned with this tool, just as they used FB’s tools to block twitchy for 24 hrs. Maybe not the same thing, but pretty close.

  • Jedd McHead

    I don’t see anything wrong with this photo (except that it’s censored!) Seriously, this is bogus and I’d reallly like to see the “second” post that was flagged. ‘Fess up, FB!

    But I’m confused — why was this photo posted in the first place? I mean, was there a caption or comment attached to the photo to explain the pic or provide a punchline? The whole thing seems odd.

    • redheadgrl

      I think the non-censored photo is the avi for the porn twitter feed @BarakObama is following on twitter. Twitchy placed the censor caption over the offensive part when they listed the story.

    twitchy moderator – here’s another comment that was hidden because of abuse complaints:
    Bob Ferri • 8 minutes ago • parent−Is Bush running again?
    What is abusive about those 4 words and a question mark? It’s from this twitchy page: http://twitchy.com/2012/10/05/hankygate-lefty-media-twitterers-obsess-over-romney-cheat-sheet-conspiracy/#comment-673431471
    Please let me know why simple questions and links to news articles are being hidden in the twitchy feed because of abuse reports?

    • Jesse Malkin

      we are aware of the problem and are looking into it. Please bear with us.

      • redheadgrl


    • Jesse Malkin

      we are going to reach out to DISQUS for assistance. Again, please bear with us We are NOT trying to censor your comments.

  • wrongheifer

    Wanna do a FB ban?….

  • Allan Howell

    Advise everyone visiting Twitchy in bold red colors, ” Facebook censored “, and to go to a non-Facebook web site for the non-censored version. I would also have, ” Facebook violates 1st Amendment rights to free speech”, ” Facebook is anti-conservative ” This will let every visitor see the dangers of Facebook and how they can silence our constitutional right to free speech.

    Most people do not realize what can happen when you put all your eggs in one basket. I found out the hard way with Yahoo a few years ago. I had a Yahoo email account, played fantasy games, and chatted on Yahoo messenger. Yahoo closed my Yahoo account due to violating Yahoo’s policies. I was never told what I did, never given a chance to explain. I lost irreplaceable pictures and contacts. I can only guess it was due to sending emotes in chat to a annoying Pakistani that kept bothering me, and thinking I was a woman.

    Facebook sucks. They respond to anonymous complaints from prudes or political hacks with automatic responses to the so called bad boy. They don’t even look at the page in question. They pulled that crap on me. I told them to fuck off. What they need to do is to get off their fat asses and review the complaints/pages before they just hit a button and get back to work on that donut and coffee. Stupid assholes.

    I agree with Stephanie. There are probably trolls who are scanning Twitchy posts on FB and marking them as spam or something like that.

  • moneyhoney1

    You know what kills me about this? A few months ago some jerk was posting a picture of a black man with his mouth on a woman’s breast and her hand on his penis.there were little stars covering it up, but even though we reported it over and over again, it kept showing up. I guess it’s only liberals who are allowed to be offensive and say what they want! We need an alternative to facebook already!!!!

  • salvagesalvage

    Yeah, you posted a pornographic image, FB doesn’t like that but it’s much better to cry and scream about liberals than admit that you screwed up. That is the wingnut way of course.

    Oh and Twitter feed that President Barack Obama’s official Twitter account subscribes to? IMPEAACH! SCREEE! SCREEE! IMPEEEEEACHHHH!

    • Jesse Malkin

      the image was not pornographic. We covered the woman’s chest with a “censored by Twitchy” oval.

      • salvagesalvage

        Yeah, that image doesn’t illicit feelings of arousal in any way!

        See the oval? It didn’t dilute the sexual imagery enough to prevent it from being sexual in nature, that’s Facebook’s problem with it.

        But again, wingnuts always must be the victims of dark conspiracies so you won’t take stuff like facts and logic into consideration.

        If you’re still not getting it, here’s an example, if I say “This is a stupid f*cking post about a non-story that f*cking wingnuts would only think important becuase they’re f*cking idiots” you still get the full message despite my “censorship”, it’s still obscene and insulting despite the “oval” in the form of a * and you are about to further prove my point by banning my account from posting here.

        • Jesse Malkin

          You are welcome here. We do not ban people for disagreeing with us.

        • vino veritas

          Not their job to worry about what gets hypocritical logic-challenged crackpot’s like you ‘aroused’ nor is that ludicrous expectation listed in Facebook’s TOS or guidelines. Fact is, pornographic images are posted to Facebook on a regular basis almost every day and many stay up much longer without interference or warnings which is opposite to the treatment Twitchy received for its non-graphic substantive message. This is a documented fact as well as provable by anyone with the simple knowledge of how to create screen cap via their web browser. Since you are not here as an official rep for Facebook, I can only respond to your declarations regarding their supposed problem with the Twitchy’s message as ignorant, arrogant and completely unmerited. There is, then, nothing to ‘get’ whereas your rambling post of vulgarities is concerned. You are the quintessential jackass and your hypocrisy reeks.

          To further prove MY point:

          “salvagesalvage • 7 hours ago • * >and you are about to further prove my point by banning my account from posting here<. "

          "twitchyadmin MOD • 6 hours ago • You are welcome here. We do not ban people for disagreeing with us."


    • vino veritas

      Yeah, ah no they didn’t. They posted a censored image and the difference is simple enough for a house pet to understand, so perhaps asking you to learn that difference would be expecting too much.
      Fact is, you just posted a disgusting offensive example of your sheer stupidity and no one here is “SCRREE” ‘ing.. wth that means.. for you to get banned. I’d prefer to let moronic trolls like you make complete unabashed asses out of yourselves anyway to show your unforgivable stupidty and lunacy.
      This is the 1st amendment way. Too bad you will never understand that simple fact of life, either.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/wdelpilartcot William Del Pilar

    I’ve been planning / laying out my next small biz and for 1st time last night I was looking at value of Google-plus for long-term social networking compared to FB? Why? (1) FB’s clearly distinguished itself as a leftist corporation. (2) As biz-man always questioned their long-term viability when their No. 1 viewer is anti-advertising; anti-everything a company has to do to generate the ad-revenue FB needs based on how much they spend (not just on the company but some of their salaries are beyond comprehension – true White Elitist living off the back of those that made them). (3) FB has to have that control it’s viewers despise to make ad-revenue. And they gave that power to it’s consumers. Notice the backlash everytime they try that. At my company I flat out told the consumer or rather educated them and told them they could go elsewhere. However FB wants to be No. 1 worldwide and they’ve put themselves into a position where they will now fail long-term because consumers will simply go elsewhere. Regardless of what one thinks no one is too big too fail (MySpace and BearStearns). FB has positioned themselves to fail because of their sheer size and culture and relationships they created.

    Google-plus is more straight fwd based on Google overall. May not like that but we usually know where they stand. Regarding privacy no difference from either one. Bullshit like this will most definately have me thinking of the switch. Especially as Google-plus has better interactive tools for my industry. That’s just my initial reports as I’ve just started digging into what is the best long-term social network to focus on for my biz. I’m big enough to say I can be wrong which is why I’ll hedge my bets and have an presence on all until one begins to separate itself from the other.

    Facebook is a publicly traded company. I would suggest shortly after posting, you do a screen capture to provide as proof the bias, should the censorship arise.

    No public company, especially one that markets in information, wants to be known as either censor or shill. Advertise the negativity and bias and you’ll win the argument.

    Money talks, especially with publicly traded companies. Ask newspapers how well censorship has worked for their shareholders as they go the way of the dodo.

    When I was going to different facebook pages of sponsors of Nickelodeon to politely express my opinion about not being able to do business with these sponsors unless they rethink their position (over TMNT controversy)..I was reported as being a spammer and was actually kicked out of my account. To sign back in I had to give them my phone number to receive a text message with a code to get back into it. I thought about not doing so, but caved. Then when I signed back into my account, I was told that because I had been spamming, I couldn’t post on any other pages for 15 days. I tried locating a place state my position, but had no luck so I said “screw ’em” and deleted my facebook account permanently.
