A Romney Supporter Reported Me To Facebook? I Am Blocked for 7 Days.

Anyone can report anyone on FaceBook for a violation of their ‘Community Standards.’Facebook gave me a 3-day timeout for suggesting to Tagg Romney that “Obama would pummel your pasty White trash face” had he elected to “take a swing at him.”  It could be fairly construed as over the top in the hypocritical world of LDS Republican Politeness Enforcement. But the 7-day time out I got for my comment on a Utah Clean Politics post suggests Facebook has a serious problem.

Facebook censorship or whiny Republicans or both?


To be clear, this action was initiated purposefully and without cause by the same sort of person who finds nothing wrong with the voter suppression going on across the red states with a vengeance. Republican behavior is shameful.

    Interesting. I just got a 24 hour time out when commenting in the same group with comments directed at the same person. Ken of course is ignoring my questions about it. Interesting that a guy who pretends to hate internet censorship so much seems to enjoy being surrounded by it. Either he’s the culprit or this is a huge coincidence.

    Now, let’s see?…Who else censors??

    As is being plumbed in Nathan’s recent thread, the polarization that is occurring could easily be rectified with an actual Mano-a-mano (on ‘pay-per-view’ even) between any number of these all too easily offended mucky-mucks.

    Had that occurred between GW Bush and Saddam Hussein…imagine the diminution of blood-shed, and Dollar drain!

    Who’s to say Presidentin’s all $1000.00 suits and crowding Secret Service attachments? Speedos at zero feet would be infinitly more satisfying to those of us who’ve tired of Kabuki.

    I’ve never been on Facebook because it’s evil. What did you say about Katy Perry?

    Good catch Richard! That is really funny.

    I am sorry you were reported to Facebook. What you said wasn’t even a big deal. Happy to have you back on utah’s clean politics when you get back.
