      doesn’t someone have to flag it as offensive for Facebook to even know it was posted?

      I just watched an episode of the American QaF and it was hilarious. It was a slow motion scene where the “hot” one pours a bottle of water all over him. Ah the 90′s!

      @gskorich:

      I can’t watch it on Netflix. They completely changed the soundtrack, replacing the original songs with generic soundalikes. It’s too distracting.

      Wow, Facebook has been doing a lot of gay-banning lately. Hmmm.

      @Tony Johnston: I”m sure it’s not their policy ie community guidelines but just some dipshit bigoted editor who needs to lose their job.

      @Paganliam: That’s interesting. Seems like allot of work to do that too.

      @gskorich: Yes. It appears that a concerted group of bigots continued to flag his post because they didn’t like his positive comments about same-sex marriage. FB’s algorithm automatically suspended his account without a human checking the content. Which I think is wrong. Given the likelihood of abuse, a human should have to follow up on flagged photos and make the call — and be responsible for that call. Would Facebook really suspend the accounts of Barack Obama or Mitt Romney just because people flagged a post without manually checking first?

      I laugh when “grown” men tell me they still use FB.

      Yeah, it’s gotta be the robots. Unless they facebook staff really ARE that homophobic. I reported a picture of sex. full nudity real life sex. and I got a message saying the picture didn’t go against their community standards and wasn’t deleted.
