From our favourite retired accountant we get this hysteria:
Whilst lots got excited by the royal weeding more than 50 Facebook pages were shut down against their owners will.
So much for freedom of speech in this country. Do you note any right wing ones in there?
Well, actually, to be honest, no, I don\’t note any right wing ones in there.
That would probably be because only not right wingers are stupid enough to break the Facebook terms of service.
In short there are three main ways to be on Facebook:
- With a profile – intended for real people, with a name
- With a group – a small to medium size group of people discussing something
- With a page – ‘Like’ something to get news updates from it
As far as I can determine no groups or pages have been deleted, only profiles, and all the profiles were not individual people, they were being used by organisations. Not only is this stupid (as I’ve previously explained here) but it violates the Facebook terms of service. So no leg to stand on if one is deleted.
So there you have it. Only lefties are stupid enough not to read and obey the terms of service.
Which stupidity, come to think of it, might aid us in working out why they might be lefties. They\’ve failed to read the operating instructions for the universe.
