Chelsea Schilling did a great job in her articles on WDN, I decided to use one of her search criteria’s to do my own searches. I chose INCEST. The reason behind this sudden interest in Facebook was last month my Facebook page was taken down due to some obscure terms of service violation. Without any warning or any contact what so ever my page was taken down, as was Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson. They were demanding his passport as part of them starting to investigate his account. Mine was just, so what. I did after two weeks or so finely get a canned answer sort of.
Your account has been disabled because you violated the Facebook Terms.
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to reactivate your account or respond to your email directly.
For more information about our policies, please read the Facebook Community Standards: https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards/
The Facebook Team
Which is funny considering they sent it to my email account? So why were they unable to respond to my email directly?
I have gotten no more than that from them, no explanation of what I did, nothing. But yet they seem to enforce their terms of service sporadically and prejudicially which really amounts to censorship. Is this supposed to be what CISPA is all about? Where things that are violations are only taken care of at the whim of whoever cares to do something about it.
If you violate the letter or spirit of this Statement, or otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us, we can stop providing all or part of Facebook to you. We will notify you by email or at the next time you attempt to access your account. You may also delete your account or disable your application at any time. In all such cases, this Statement shall terminate, but the following provisions will still apply: 2.2, 2.4, 3-5, 8.2, 9.1-9.3, 9.9, 9.10, 9.13, 9.15, 9.18, 10.3, 11.2, 11.5, 11.6, 11.9, 11.12, 11.13, and 15-19.
When I log in I get this nice page. Is this supposed to be their answer to their policy number 15 above?
Your account has been disabled. If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit our FAQ page here.
Click that, and it brings you to this page.
Facebook accounts that violate Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities may be disabled by Facebook.
Possible reasons include, but are not restricted to:
- Continued prohibited behavior after receiving a warning or multiple warnings from Facebook
- Unsolicited contact with others for the purpose of harassment, advertising, promoting, dating, or other inappropriate conduct
- Use of a fake name
- Impersonation of a person or entity, or other misrepresentation of identity
- Posted content that violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (this includes any obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit photos, as well as any photos that depict graphic violence. We also remove content, photo or written, that threatens, intimidates, harasses, or brings unwanted attention or embarrassment to an individual or group of people)
Please review the Facebook Community Standards to learn more about specific types of conduct and content that are not permitted on the site.
If you have not posted violating content or otherwise violated our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, keep in mind that your account may have been recently compromised by someone else. Also, our systems sometimes disable accounts temporarily for security reasons.
If you believe your account was disabled by mistake, click here.
And when you click the link you get to a page that asks a bunch of question about your account then you enter in the information and you get a window that says verify the information. Then another window pops up that says they will contact you:
Thank you for contacting Facebook.
You should receive an email response shortly. You may need to respond to it before we can assist you further.
Then nothing, no contact, no answers, not anything. So it’s no wonder their IPO was so low and a joke. I want to know what I did that was so wrong as to violate their terms of service so bad that my account was disabled and locked? I demand to know what I did wrong? Was it my political views, or was it posting content from infowars.com, or was it someone who decided I was looking into their non-existent company? And that last one was a report I was doing at the time of a non-existent wrestling company that someone said they owned and it was a bogus claim, to be more precise NCW Wrestling.
The wacky part of all this is all I want is my zip file of my account from them. I don’t want my account restored or to be back on their site. I just want my file so I can have all my stories and research that I had on their site. They will probably use my photos and such without my consent even though I own the copyright, I know they will store my information and phone numbers and such that’s all they want anyway. And in order to sue them I have to go to California to file the suit? Yeah right.
All of these searches below violate Facebook’s terms of service and policies, but as of today all of them are up and online.
WARNING: Links will lead to pornographic photos follow at your own risk. They are here to show violations.
All these results were under the search for incest. I haven’t even gotten out of that search yet. All these violations are contained there, I dare to wonder what I would find if I typed in Preteen Hardcore. And then they want to let under aged children access Facebook now. They can’t maintain it with people over 14 on; imagine if there were younger children that could access this. But I guess it’s okay for the CIA/NSA I mean Facebook to allow illegal activity to go on its site, and to not enforce their terms of service equally. I mean why should they bother, they only want your information and to spy on you so it’s all okay.
Due to most of the links being deleted their no longer needed here.
