Maybe their automated system deletes, without human intervention, if there are a certain number of complaints about a posting. They need to instead have a moderator review before allowing deletions. Works on FR!

You were saying ...

It does ... but there are way too many people and way too many posts to have a person manually reading every complaint. It would cause the whole Facebook thing to collapse of its own weight, if they were to assign people to do that. You can only do it - if it doesn't get beyond a certain number of posts and people. Facebook is way way beyond that ...

FR runs on volunteers, FB would have to pay people. Automated systems are cheaper.

FaceBook now should know that the auto-ban feature should be disabled for prominent posters, or at least should require human review. And if the human determines that certain people are abusing the "abuse" button, it should result in the COMPLAINERS being flagged.
