Liberal Facebook Users Claim Site Censorship is on the Rise
In recent days, several liberal and progressive members of Facebook have been complaining that the social media site is making it difficult for them to post and even disabling their ability to do so.

1. I do have a different problem with fraudbook; they block every attempt @ registration.

I do have a different problem with fraudbook; they block every attempt @ registration.

I am DonFphrnqTaub Persina & have government issue identification that shows that.

On yahoo! a search for persina is blocked; on google the response is Did you mean:.

But, fraudbook does cancel every registration attempt.

On provocation, the preview captcha tends to crash explorer.

3. The government has approved it,......
Donald became Don;

Frank became Fphrnq;

my grandfather had been a Taub, which I wanted to emphasize;

many people employ camelcase.


Why does fraudbook get to steal my identity, regardless of how I spell my name?



Why does any searchengine get to decertify a word that has existed for centuries?: persina?

What is a Syrinx?

DonFphrnqTaub Persina

4. a syrinx is part of a bird's larynx, or "voice-box"
Or a flute solo by Debussy.

Or alternatively, a DU handle by someone that likes the rock band Rush.

I'm not going to defend Facebook. I don't care for Facebook, at all.

And I think you should be able to spell your name however you want, even if it is kind of ridiculous.

But I strongly suspect that you're putting me on.

Good luck.

6. It happened to me
One of the largest Free Tibet groups with over a million members, dozens of new discussion topics daily, and high volume participation was hacked by the Chinese Government.

Instead of banning the person that hacked our group, what does facebook do? They simply shut down the entire group and banned me just for complaining about it!
