With good reason, I have banned Facebook as quick as they have banned me. But my case was more because they couldn't explain to me why my content was pulled, nor would they even tell me which photo caused my ban.

In the case of Dominic Scaia, it seems they're overexplaining their case. Dominic is a transgendered man who uploaded a photo of himself, post-surgery without a shirt on, to Facebook. They banned him for uploading the picture. Then they reinstated his account but told him not to upload the offending picture again. And now he has been told he can upload the picture again. It seems they re-evaluated their policy.

Here's Facebook's delicious reply:

"I went back to our team here to ensure that we were being consistent in our review, and upon further consideration, the team has concluded that the photos do not violate our standards for graphic imagery and can be allowed. While we strive to apply our policies as consistently as possible, with over 350 million users on Facebook there may be instances when we fail to do this and we do our best to rectify these situations as swiftly as possible. We encourage Mr Scaia to upload the photos again if he would like to make them viewable on his profile.

We continuously re-evaluate all of our policies to make sure that they remain relevant and useful, and our policies surrounding graphic imagery are no exception. These have continued to evolve as we've seen how potentially graphic content can be used to create awareness and educate users about a particular issue. Last year's protests in Iran - and even today's crisis in Haiti - are poignant examples of this."



Uhhhh, fuckers say what? Too unamused to keep going, I'll send you to Bilerico Project for the article.

It seems they pulled his photos again. And then put them back up. Again.

I heard Facebook "banned" breastfeeding photos a while ago. A lot of people complained and threatened to cancel their accounts (including MY kids) and they now "allow" them.

Looking at some of the stuff that people post on FB, I am surprised they'd get so bent out of shape.

Silly and mean.

That is a little wild. They ban pictures but not words. I have seen a many groups, naughty room, hidden doors you name it with things like  who is sucking dick/eating pussy, what's your favorite position....... etc and they are open to anyone and the material isn't closed off. So that makes no sense at all.
LIve everyday as if it is your last.

P Gell: I read (and probably posted) about the breastfeeding fiasco. I certainly don't understand the problem with breastfeeding or photos of it or people doing it in public. The kid needs to eat - feed it!

I suspect that people get offended by it because it desexualizes the breast or something. We're taught they're "private" and "naughty" so how can that be ok in public? Shame, shame, shame. That's all they know.

Plum: I hear you. Before FB gave me the boot, I was surprized to see some of content. I thought they were big watchdogs and now it seems they are. And gatekeepers. Whatever you post there belongs to them. Pervs!
