What the hell Facebook?????

I like to think that I have a happy funny blog. I don't want one of those angry rant filled blogs. I enjoy reading those but it’s not me. I am a happy person and want to share happiness and joy. Occasionally I will have a post that expresses my frustration but those are short and over quickly.

This post is going to be an angry post. I am sorry but I am feeling attacked and my fight or flight syndrome says strike back in the only way you can.....BLOG IT!!!!

Last night as I am getting ready to call it a night and I check Facebook and blogger one last time I realized I forgot to post yesterdays blog post on Facebook (turns out I had but just forgot). Feeling the need to share with my family and friends I quickly try to share my post.

Facebook in return send me this message:
This message contains blocked content that has previously been flagged as abusive or spammy. Let us know if you think this is an error.

WHAT???? Abusive or spammy, are you serious??? I've never even heard of the word spammy before. I'm guessing it has something to do with spam. Now they are comparing my blog to spam. Are they serious?

I figured it was so error so I click the provided link and get this message:
I am blocked from adding content.You are trying to post content on Facebook that has been marked as abusive. You may request to have this block lifted from Facebook by contacting us below. Please note that we're unable to reply to every bug report at this time, but we may contact you for more details about the issue as we investigate the report.

 I politely fill out the information requested:
Content you are blocked from posting:

Please explain why you think this is an error

With in a few minutes I get the following email reply:

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

ARE YOU SERIOUS FACEBOOK???? Did you even read my blog or review anything on it. I don't even have ads on it. Cant say that about Facebook. You get bombarded with ads on that web site.

So now instead of simply clicking the nice little share button I have to copy and paste the URL for my posts to appear on my FB profile. This is not a big deal, except that I feel that Facebook is being lazy by not clearly investigating my request for review.

Please copy and paste the URL and link into your Facebook page to protest!!!

If you like it share it
