I'm a webb surfer and I do believe that, so it seems,since Obama has been in office, I've noticed that if you speak against the guy or ask about his policies,his supporters are in your face and defending something they cannot explain. It seems that even our freedom of speech has been slowly silenced, because his administration and his suypporters are big babies that cannot take any kind of constructive criticism. It's very strange. Now since Bush put in place the Patiot Act, Obama has taken it steps further to censor our free speech, we cannot stand for this. Facebook must be being stong-armed to go along, how many other seachsites will???
Recently I received this message on Facebook chat while talking to a friend of mine:
"You have been blocked from sending chat messages because you repeatedly misused this feature. This block will last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. When you are allowed to reuse this feature, please proceed with caution. Further misuse may result in your account being permanently disabled."
I don't understand what misusing the chat feature is when I'm talking to my friends online. They are threatening to even cancel my account permanently if I don't comply with their censorship. I only talking to one friend at the time, and the exact same thing happened to her. I really don't think Facebook should get involved in censoring private chats–it did not send several of my messages that included words in spanish.
I started the politically conservative group, Soldiers Without Boots several months ago, and it still doesn't appear when typed into the search box. I've reported it ad nauseum and received no response. It could be that they fear grass-roots rebels willing to fight against the Fascist left.
I know of a couple of people that have had their accounts blocked, and when they wrote emails they were replied to with a generic letter saying Facebook officials determined the account to be illegal but couldn't specify reasons for that determination, due to security concerns. The person had nothing provocative, nude, or offensive. This type of censorship, for whatever reason?, just isn't right.
They are actually blocking accounts and not saying why. They don't say why. They don't answer the emails asking why? In fact they don't know if it is illegal or legal, this is all subjective. In fact they allow some to post certain items that are NUDE and they block others that are NUDE ... it is TOO subjective.
