So I get a message from Facebook today that I am banned for 12 hours because of a post I made and the post was removed. What did this post say? Well, I will do my best because I am working off of memory here...
"Being ____ly violated is not an act of love. It's an act of violence whether or not it is done with consent or not. This is why we need to treat homos as the sexual perverts they are and not treat it as a normal life style."
I had several "likes" on this comment but since I offended the homos on Facebook, they see fit to ban me for 12 hours. The ban is not that big of deal...it's just the principle of it. If it wasn't for the fact that I have family that I talk to and there are a few really good trad groups on there I would say goodbye to Facebook.
I keep saying, "Family only" (family grows to "alumni family" who are indeed like family, and then friends)... we should quit, you know.
I had an attitude that, FB is a publically-traded company, so we use their service and follow their rules, and maintain a modicum of privacy.
My problem is NOT that your comment was banned, but that FB allows far worse offensive comments, pages, pictures, you name it
, against Catholics, our Lord, the Holy Mother (things I won't repeat) and even when there is a campaign to remove such offensive posts (which again makes anything you
said look kindergarten-mild), Facebook has claimed the offenses we report break no rules. (So I just blocked the offensive pages and people, and kept to myself.)
But given your ban, I find that there is such a double-standard on Facebook that I'm not sure I can justify maintaining a presence on FB. I wonder if there's a different service (not Google +, as they're just as bad if not potentially worse) that my friends and family and alumni might entertain abandoning FB for.
Of course, the same problem of FB being standard on elderly family members' "cable boxes" — those things with Netflix and apps on them, but they're not cable really — makes FB their only real means of "staying in touch." I'm truly at odds with myself here. I know of Diaspora, but I'm not sure such things are available on those cheap little Netflix boxes.
