Apparently I did something that upset the facebook gods.

They claim it was either:
* photos that attack a person or group (don't know of any)
* nudity (not really)
* drug use (nope)
* violence (they left my photo of me brandishing firearms untouched...)

Of course they won't tell me what they were, so how am I supposed to know what to avoid?

The only thing I can think of is that there were some photos of Becky breastfeeding the boy in the NICU.

Apparently kids eating is indecent now? What? Not like I was showing full on boobs or anything, I've seen more revealed people walking down the street.

They use an automated scanning algorithm. Its not fool proof - earlier today a friend's picture of her standing in front of Niagara falls and another of her standing in her yard with her horse were both taken down for the same thing. I assure you no one flagged those, LOL.

their algorithm goes after people eating, leaves my brandishing of real actual firearms in what appear to be reckless ways (but in fact are a camera trick) intact?

Back to the drawing board.

it's like how on TV, they can show all sorts of violence and whatnot and nobody bats an eye.

Yet if there is one hint of a (female) nipple or something, all hell breaks loose.

We have a constitutional amendment that gives us the right to bear arms,
well I think we need another one that gives us a right to bare boobies. ;op

Okay, enough bad jokes. It is totally ridiculous how the boob nazis crack down on that, even when the situation in question is totally non-sexual and very natural, such as breastfeeding a baby.

That's worse than the hamster dance.

Yes, facebook believes breastfeeding is indecent. It's kinda like the LJ debacle over breastfeeding icons a while back

Ironically they had no problems with the bathtub photos where my boy was protected from the world by nothing more than a baby washcloth, nor the photo of him and his mom showering together (with no genitals showing)

borderline c/p: ok
brandishing firearms: ok
eating: not ok

How did these people get on MY internets?

They *are* rather screwed up, aren't they?

All the more reason to go to IPv6, and make it as technically difficult as possible to do so...

doing my best here to keep them off my internets

Me, too! (Except that my colo provider doesn't have native IPv6 so I had to dig a tunnel)

if you coloed at $employer you wouldn't have that problem since it's native ipv6 throughout
Apr. 28th, 2010 05:58 pm (UTC)
Very true, and when we[1] look into buying new hardware, I'm going to push for consideration of that. :) Does $employer have KVMoIP?

[1] And by "we," I mean the non-profit coop we're setting up. :D
Apr. 29th, 2010 05:56 am (UTC)
we don't have kvmoip, no. But you're free to colocate one. :)

What I found is awesome is either xen or vmware esxi (starting to prefer vmware more for a number of little reasons)

Both of those basically allow you to kvm the hosts you care about with minimal fuss.
