What’s up with Facebook?
cybercorrespondent's weblog ^ | 5-8-2012 | cybercorrespondent

Posted on 05/08/2012 6:42:53 PM PDT by Cybercorrespondent

Because of my conservative views, some liberal must have complained, and for several months I have tried to sign in to my Facebook account and this is the message I get. “Suspicious activity has been detected on your Facebook account and it has been temporarily suspended as a security precaution. It is likely that your account was compromised as a result of entering your password on a website designed to look like Facebook. This type of attack is known as phishing” I have changed my password several times, contacted Facebook, but they still don’t allow me to sign in. Since I’ve forgot my secret word, Facebook keeps on giving me impossible tasks to identify, such animations on some of my friend’s pages. Is Facebook a liberal organization?

Pretty common occurrence. More likely is they are having an issue with a database that is impacting you and your account will be just fine in an hour or two.

It is not uncommon for this to happen especially if you tried signing on an unidentified computer.
Just wait, if they are using the word temporary.

I’ve seen some occutard leftists play this game where they get a lot of folks to figure out someone’s email they use to log in and click the ‘forgot password’ link and try logging in with a lot of fake passwords.

The goal isn’t to actually hack the account but get the result of exactly what happened here, have the user locked out of their own account.

If Facebook blocked people for expressing conservative views, I’d have lasted about 24 hours. I go on the Obama page and write comments that send the moonbats into a frenzy. During the ‘08 campaign, I went on an “I Love Michelle Obama” page. The commentary on there was over the top ridiculous. I politely explained my beliefs, and why I couldn’t vote for Obama. People were very nice to me, writing things like “Go back to your trailer park, you white redneck racist!” A black woman sent me a private message and thanked me, saying that after reading my post that she realized she was supporting Obama for the wrong reasons, and that he stood for everything she was against, and couldn’t vote for him. I will save that message forever!

Have you tried signing in from a different computer ? Maybe the message you are getting isn’t from Facebook itself, but from a phishing site. When you go to the Facebook site, keep an eye on yuor address bar in your browser. It should just say facebook.com. If you see an IP address pop up, it is probably a phishing site.

Had something similar happen to me on Yahoo Answers.
I was one of the top posters on one of their political sites when my account was suddenly banned.
The post was banned because of a disgusting racial attack on Obama filled with the N word and curses.
I explained to Yahoo that it was a fairly simple thing to disprove since the IP address of the post was different than my computer. After eight attempts I finally quit trying and signed up under another name.

Since my password is almost unbreakable I believe the real culprit is someone who works for Yahoo.

You excerpt a request for help?

For blog hits?

Maybe Facebook blocked you because you’re an asshole?

How was one to know that was the entirety of the text without clicking on his intentionally placed MySpace page “excerpt” link which would thereby give him the hit that he craves like crack?

Trusting a blog pimp is no smarter than giving your car keys and twenty bucks to a meth head thinking he would bring back lunch and your change.

Oh, Dear Me!

I'm so sorry.

I forgot that I wasn't scheduled to take over responses for the "humblegunner" account until 11:45CDT tonight.

It's just so difficult having so many of us cover the board being "you" all the time.

By the way - Did you guys get your May checks from George yet? Mine seems to be late.

Liberals organize and travel in activist packs on Youtube and Facebook and mark conservative pages and channels as offensive content. They hound Christians and conservatives on both websites. They get their accounts suspended and frozen all the time.

I guess we could organize to take up the hobby and then it and youtube and facebook would have to change the system. Facebook is liberal like google is liberal.

Been here 3-1/2 years and has made fewer than 40 posts is indeed a n00bie.

Plus he is a blog pimp and a jerk so in my opinion he will always be a n00bie.

I’m a troll with 169 hit points——and I regenerate fire damage! Not only that, I can shrug off critical hits. Fear me! I am Slidge, King of Volturnum! We have the lowest tax rate in Rokugan, and no EPA!
