FaceBook just told me off!

I was commenting go Jesus and wrote this "No. Seriously. 12 men friends. Never married. No kids. Fag Hag girlfriend. Preached universal love."

The FaceBook algorithm pulled it as Hate Speech!  :rofl:

I think "fag hag" is probably where the card came out.  :teadrink:

At least you didn't get put in FB jail for it -- did you?  I've had some FB friends get suspended for the weirdest things.

Now that's funny! I wonder though, if Recusant is right? Maybe it was something automatic. Still, I think what you wrote is funny! :lol:

It is funny. These guys at FB don't have any sense of humour.

Their algorithms don't.

Funnily enough I have used the term Fag Hag a few times but up until now I have always added "(awful term)" after it. So that may have been the problem

And today I woke up to find I am in FB Jail (for 14 more hours) and I'm directed to the spamming rules so I suspect my posts about Mubarak Bala have triggered some warning somewhere.

It is better to kill a humanist/Atheist for not believing in Allah than hurting the feelings of Muslim fundamentalists.

I think Hanlon's razor applies here in that FB just triggered on the repartition and sharing of posts.
