A friend writes on Facebook that she was glad Dallas beat the Redskins.
In her comment box, I wrote "BLASPHEMY ;P" and Facebook erased it!
So I thought weird and I wrote "HERESY ;p" and Facebook erased it!
I then wrote "WTF? I tried to write two non-obscene words that have a religious context and Facebook just erased them. Talk about Big Brother BS."
And my friend responded almost immediately with, "It said you commented like 4 times, with nothing there...=) Wonder what's next to be censored?? Fox news! Tombstones! =)"
That pretty much sums it up. I can't write a word with religious overtones on Facebook without them arbitrarily deleting it - no complaint from my friend because she never got the chance to see it. A little friendly football rivalry/teasing and Facebook shuts it down.
Is free speech in America seriously this threatened?
