Facebook account disabled

Last night, I was writing a message to a friend’s wall on Facebook, about telescopes, and when submitting the message, I got a message saying that the content of my message had been reported to be abusive by some Facebook users ?? After that, I couldn’t log in back again, it just said my account was disabled.

So, if you rely on Facebook for contacting me, please don’t, send me mail, which is still enabled, and even allows all sorts of abusive content (you can write me about telescopes if you want, no ultra-paranoid filters there :-D ).

I already wrote to the Facebook staff about the issue, but I’m not sure what they will decide.

    How facebook managed to do that is quite an achievement. A congratulations is certainly deserved. Good luck getting your account back :)

    Perhaps it was due to talking about long and hard things? :P, clearly FB is nuts…

    Yes, but these are intentional. Censorship is not a bug is a crime.

  6. [...] Like Rodrigo, my Facebook account has been disabled for some strange reason too. So, if you want to talk to me on Facebook, you probably won’t see me there. My pal Matt Nuzum said that I am vanished from his friends list, as if I don’t even exist. That, my friends, is weird. [...]

    Yeap, my blog was also reported to be abusive, I expect something like what happened to you in a present future.

    I take it you don’t really mind about your FB account, but stupid-censorship acts like this.

  8. Facebook stinks! says:

    Nothing like that happened to me but in general I don’t find Facebook to be reliable and professional for the number of people who are on it. I find it absolutely disturbing that FB would disable an account just like that with no investigation whatsoever. Who is running show anyway there? Doesn’t matter anyway…By the way I had an account disabled because of insults through a private message. Just make up another email address and create a new account if you are still interested in being part of the Fb family.

  14. Has anyone here tried FaceWizard? It’s supposed to harvest facebook user id’s from existing fan pages and then recruit them to your own fan pages. Anyone tried this?
