The Facebook Team to me
4:57 PM (9 hours ago)Hi,Your account has been disabled because we have determined that you are not representing yourself authentically on Facebook. (Without ever BOTHERING to contact me first, of course...) Fake accounts are a
violation of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. (And what exactly IS a "fake account?") All accounts
must abide by the following policies:• You must provide your real first name and last name.• Impersonating anyone or anything is prohibited. (Apparrently, ANYONE can be deleted for no reason, since your account "is not really you", and thus, you are "impersonating yourself online"?)• Profiles created to represent celebrities, pets, ideas, or inanimate objects are strictly prohibited.• Profiles created for the purpose of spamming or harassing others are strictly prohibited. (Funny how the email abuser I blocked got ME deleted, but suffered nothing for his attacks, isn't it?)People on Facebook want to interact with their real friends and the people they know in the real world. Since fake accounts can damage the
integrity of this environment, they are not allowed to remain on the
site.Unfortunately, we will not be able to reactivate this account for any reason, nor will we provide further information about your violation or
the systems we have in place. This decision is final and cannot be
appealed.Thanks for your understanding,GiannaUser OperationsFacebook
I really enjoyed the "thanks for your understanding." after the "You're deleted for no valid or justifiable reason, we will not tell you why, and our decision is final." The absolute pinnacle of hypocrisy at work...
Be wary of FaceBook...just because Zuckerberg puts a few bucks into what is alleged to be "cannabis legaliation" in California (it isn't legalization...and it's definitely not REPEAL of PROHIBITION) does not mean that he has stopped attacking cannabis/hemp activists any more than Obama's "we're not going after medical users" means they're going to stop raiding dispensaries!
Make sure that you don't allow your ADDRESS or PHONE or CELL numbers to be CONTROLLED by FaceBook...remove that information from your accounts ASAP...EVERY APPLICATION that FaceBook hosts is allowed to access ALL of your personal information at will, and to spread it to whoever the application developers wish to SELL IT TO...and for whatever purposes they wish!
Put it this way...WHY would they tie "validating your account" to your cell phone or credit card when they already USE YOUR PAGE to generate ad revenue? Aren't profits high enough? Do they REALLY need to hold your personal information and right to privacy hostage--as well as your credit and OFFLINE communications?
Are corporate profits more important than YOUR LIFE to you...or just to FaceBook?
Think about it...and start looking into FaceBook alternatives like Diaspora
