FACEBOOK CENSORS AND TEMPORARILY BLOCKS USERS Facebook has a mechancial system that if it detects use of "certain words" they will block the user. these words could be any word, but if facebook analysts machine deems it unfavourable, then your blocked. If you are debating on line about Obama, politics or religion, there are again certain words will automatically get you blocked. Facebook should not have the power to censor or temporarily block users. Iowa

Facebook has been censoring users.  It will temporarily block users.  They have their own system that if they catch a certain "word, or phrase" that they deem as unfavourable, well they temporarily block you.  If you are on line posting for a long time, well Facebook will temporarily block you again.  If someone else on facebook doesn't like what you say in a post, they can get Facebook to block you.  The whole system is outdated, unfair, and is censoring everyone's free speech.  

I can understand if someone is using racial slurs, other awful stuff, sure block them for a day.  Further, they send you notice that your temporarily blocked, but don't say if that is for a day, 48 hrs. If you try the following day to access apparently facebook will block you longer because of that.  Censoring normal everday conversations people have on post or news sites is not in our constitution.  Facebook is violatitng our freedom of expression.  

Facebook should advise users how long they can post on a news site, or other social sites before just simply blocking them.  I never use curse words, I engage in political debates on various news sources on facebook, and frequently for no apparent good reason to me and othrs, Facebook says "your temporarily blocked". no reason given, no time line on how long the block is on.  This violates every user's rights in choosing to use Facebook's product.

Not true.

 You do not have a right to use Facebook (or any other web site).  Thay can completely ban you for any reason or for no reason at all. Start your own web site if you don't want to be restricted.

Yes, they can

You should stop feeling entitlement to something you do NOT own. They can block all they want because it is THEIR server. You likely own nothing if you post on their site especially when you accept their ToS.

If you do not like what they do, do NOT join or post anything on their server. Free speech? Get a blog on other website. Being blocked? Get a blog on another site. Even better, get your own web hosting and post whatever you like to say. It is that simple. Stop acting like a child who cannot get the toy he/she wants.
