So I get this message from Facebook.
The only two wall posts I’ve made in the past month are this one on December 27 at the WM3 Truth Facebook page:
The “Damien Echols profile” page at wm3truth.com has been updated and greatly expanded.
And this one on December 28:
Another wm3truth.com case history page updated. Did Jessie Misskelley recant his 6/3/93 confession right away, as supporters claim? No. He told his lawyers the same story for the next sixteen weeks. – DJK
I suppose you could say that these posts are hateful in the sense that I hate people who beat eight-year-olds unconscious, tie them up, sexually assault them, torture them with a knife, carve off body parts, then drown them. Guilty as charged, I hate people like that.
Facebook obviously doesn’t have someone reviewing each wall post for violations. Users have to report specific posts. Facebook probably doesn’t even review each reported post. I doubt that an actual Facebook employee looked at those posts and said, “yes, that’s hate speech, we might need to ban the author”. Other admins on the WM3 Truth page have also been subject to repeated TOS violation reports. As far as I can tell, Facebook offers no way to appeal a violation charge or to report people making anonymous, bogus violation charges.
If the WM3 Truth Facebook page disappears soon, this is why.
This is not a free speech issue. Facebook owns the site, they set the rules. Ditto Wikipedia. That’s why I prefer to publish on a site that I own.
