Facebook BLOCK for a “Nude”…of a PUPPET! (not a naked one!) And, Tips to Avoid Spamfriends

Clearly Facebook’s default response to any and all complaints about photos is, “Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius.”  Google it 🙂

I woke up to a giant wave of love…which is great, only I hadn’t finished my first cup of coffee, I have allergies from hell, and said wave of love consisted of concerned emails wondering why I had left Facebook…

Well, I logged in and was told that I’d been blocked for a picture containing “nudity.”  And what came up as said blocked nude picture someone had complained about?


So yeah, if you ever wondered if anyone at Facebook actually reviews complaints BEFORE they lock your account for a photo someone’s complained about?  I’d say probably not.

So what to do?  Well, I’m laid flat with allergies, tree pollen is off the hook here right now.  I don’t have the energy for a Crusade, so to speak, against the tendency of every large media conglomerate to staff its censorship departments with underpaid drudges in third world countries, who are well aware of Brad’s Law:  “No censor ever got fired for censoring too much.”

Obviously someone who seriously loves the Departed Dear Leader reported the post.  Which means somewhere in my friends list is a “mole.”  I was very very promiscuous when I was young on Facebook, and friended every potential fan I could.  Now, I know better.

So I can’t fight Facebook, the morons.  But I can fight spammers.  Here’s what to look for when you get a friend request…and when to DELETE one.  If 2-3 of these are true, you’ve been spammed.

1.  This person has NO mutual friends with you.

2.  This person is from Africa or the Far East (sorry, sounds racist, but it’s the trend).

3.  This person has MAYBE 10-15 posts in their timeline, most of which are family photos, possibly also an endorsed ad or two for sunglasses or some other usual spam suspect.

4.  This person immediately messages you.  “Hello dear, how are you, I love you.”  Blah blah.

DELETE AND REPORT AS SPAM!  Otherwise you’ll find your timeline flooded with ads for counterfeit sunglasses in NO TIME.

And reported for “nudity,” too, obviously.

EDIT:  Of course I forgot to add “anybody whose profile picture is duckface,” but you know that, right?  Also, that seems to be an abandoned tactic now.
