Facebook has Blocked My Account!
11/9/2012 | Self

Posted on 11/09/2012 11:57:18 AM PST by ducttape45

I've been blocked form using Facebook. This is what I found when I tried to log in:

-------------------------------------------

Your Account's Temporarily Blocked You're temporarily blocked from using certain Facebook features.

This block will be lifted in 30 days.

Using Facebook to post or create spammy content is a violation of our Community Standards. If you continue to abuse Facebook's features, your account could be permanently disabled.

-------------------------------------------

It's a good thing I decided to close the account anyway, but still, all because I oppose Obama and posted articles negative of him!

I’ve been posting anti-Obama links like crazy for months. I haven’t been banned yet.

I deleted my account this morning. If you got blocked because of your posts, then I would probably have been blocked as well anyway. Screw’em!

I’d like to use Facebook simply to keep up with my kids and to see the pictures they post there of their families. But for a number of reasons I simply don’t think it’s a good idea to get involved with it.

So, I don’t.

Fakebook is so pre-postliteracy, like the 19th century, man. Sign up with the Twitter, only 140 characters of nonsense allowed.

I wasn’t just those who oppose Romney, Christians have been targeted for quite awhile with organized blog that tell people what posts to flag, even innocuous things like “happy Birthday” or posts from 2 years ago. Oh and there is NO recourse if you are blocked.

I know someone who got a 30 day ban because Mormons flagged them for posting the Greek of James 1:5. Another friend got several 30 day bans for quoting the founding fathers.

You are not alone by far. Facebook may be a great way to keep in contact with friends and family but it is also the devil’s playground.

I got off of Fascist Book weeks ago and use Start Page instead of Government Google.

Some of my political posts (links) on FB would go poof.

No problems here. Election night and the day after I unfriended every single person who had ever posted anything even close to praise for Obama. I did a little ethnic cleansing.

Yup. I think it depends on how you post and also who your friends are.

If you continuously go to Nancy Pelosi, Harry Ried, MSNBC, (even) Bill Orielly’s page and post anti-Obama stuff the liberals who see it will click “spam” to shut you down.

If you have a lot of activist leftist friends for friends on your FB and you post on your own FB anti-Obama stuff they may also try to report you as “spam”. (I think this is less likely to happen but possible)

Bottom line: It depends on where you post your stuff.

If you post in the enemy's encampment they can use the abuse button to block your posts. You are now considered a troll. You need to stick to like minded people who don't find your posts offensive. And if you find them in your camp, do the same, report them. Just another socially accepted way to divide and conquer

In the age of Obama I think it would be wise for us true conservatives to leave a very small footprint on the net if not the entire grid. No doubt in my mind a database is being maintained. It’s not paranoia if they really are out to get you. Just a thought.

If you are looking for alternatives besides twitter,

Try www.KeepAndShare.com

It was designed for organizations but works for individuals just as well.

It’s like facebook on steroids.

A must see.

In a nutshell, facebook allows you to define friends who must approve, and then they all have access to everything you share at that level.

With keepandshare, what you upload is shared by the file, folder, category, page, whatever... for ONLY those you specify.

You can also use it to share stuff with people who DO NOT HAVE AN ACCOUNT. If you know their email, keepandshare generates one with your attachment when you share it.

And of course, keepandshare is free. It does have some pay-for-premium service offers, but they are cheap and unnecessary for the average user.

“You must have all like-minded facebook friends that wouldnt hit the report abuse button. I ended up deleting the obama supporters from my list.”

No, probably not ALL of them, but the minute it appears they might lean further left than I am comfortable with (which isn’t far) they usually de-friend me because I’ll hit a nerve eventually. I know the secret to happiness...screw lefties. Friends, family, even the dog (if he ever wagged his tail at Obama, he’d be homeless) makes no matter to me. If you are a lefty you are not my friend and you will NOT like what I have to say...not enough to want to be around me, anyway. Which makes things a lot more peaceful.

Yep, definitely gonna keep it closed now. Looks like Twitter will get my business. I've also been trying to find a substitute for Yahoo as a homepage and I don't want to use Google.

I'm still looking.

No, that's just it, it's an account that I've had for a while that no one was friended on, basically an account so I could voice my views without anyone to watch, and they blocked it anyway.

**************
It could be friends of friends, depending upon how you have the security on your account set up.

My posts can only be seen by my friends, but I have friends who allow friends of friends to see and comment.

I’d wait the 30 days if you want to keep it and then lock down the security and dump any pro obama posters so you won’t be reported.

I posted tons of anti-0 stuff and nothing happened to me and so did most of my friends, so I’m pretty sure someone reported the posts on your page.

FACEBOOK is an addiction. I hosted one of my oldest friends this week. She came to share the election with me, as I was running for a County office for the first time (I won).
Anyway, this woman would not put down her freaking phone. We were out to dinner and she’s having FACEBOOK conversations WHILE WE ARE AT DINNER. This is not a stupid woman. The breaking point was the entire way to the airport she said not one word to me, instead had her nose in that damn phone. Needless to say, she is no longer my friend.

We’ll see what happens. No one was supposed to be able to view that Facebook account and look what happened. Next time I’m able to get on it I’ll see how it’s set up. Could be something got changed and I didn’t know about it.

“I’ve been posting anti-Obama links like crazy for months. I haven’t been banned yet.”

Only about 25% of social media for me is political, the rest is family and hobbies related.

There are MILLIONS of conservatives on social media.

Most of those “warnings” etc, are just bot generated, just work around them.

And anyone who posts HERE and thinks they are “safe” is sadly mistaken.

Information is how you use it.

BTW, Google the following :

DNT+

FBpurity

Adblockerplus

maybe your anti-Obama posts included links that had copyright issues. I found some election-poster-like graphics I saved were copyrighted and needed to be referred to as a link to the source and not using the copy I had downloaded to my PC; and maybe some of your posts included links whose websites (not you) were considered spammy or copyright infringed

i am only trying to guess what the issue really is

other people I know with plenty of anti-Obama posts on facebook were not blocked on facebook
