Facebook Revamps Its Takedown Guidelines

 

 

 

 

” Facebook is providing the public with more information about what material is banned on the social network.

  Its revamped community standards now include a separate section on “dangerous organisations” and give more details about what types of nudity it allows to be posted.

  The US firm said it hoped the new guidelines would provide “clarity”. One of its safety advisers praised the move but said that it was “frustrating” other steps had not been taken.

  Facebook says about 1.4 billion people use its service at least once a month. The new guide will replace the old one on the firm’s website, and will be sent to users who complain about others’ posts.

  Monika Bicket, Facebook’s global head of content policy, said the rewrite was intended to address confusion about why some takedown requests were rejected.

  The new version of the guidelines runs to nearly 2,500 words, nearly three times as long as before. The section on nudity, in particular, is much more detailed than the vague talk of “limitations” that featured previously.

  Facebook now states that images “focusing in on fully exposed buttocks” are banned, as are “images of female breasts if they include the nipple”.

Other sections with new details include:

  • Bullying – images altered to “degrade” an individual and videos of physical bullying posted to shame the victim are now expressly forbidden
  • Hate speech – while the site maintains the same list of banned topics, it now adds that people are allowed to share examples of others’ hate speech in order to raise awareness of the issue, but they must “clearly indicate” that this is their purpose
  • Criminal activity – the network now states that users are prohibited from celebrating any crimes they have committed, but adds that they are allowed to propose that an illegal activity should be legalised
  • Self-injury – the site says that it will remove content that identifies victims and targets them for attack, even if done humorously. But it says that it does not consider “body modification” to be a type of self-injury “

 

 

You can’t show buttocks or boobs but beheadings are still okay ? WTF ?

 

 

” While Facebook’s new guidelines state that users should “warn their audience about what they are about to see if it includes graphic violence”, it provides no way for members to add cover pages to clips to prevent them from auto-playing. “

How a Miami School Crime Cover-Up Policy Led to Trayvon Martin’s Death

” The February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martion might never have happened if school officials in Miami-Dade County had not instituted an unofficial policy of treating crimes as school disciplinary infractions. Revelations that emerged from an internal affairs investigation explain why Martin was not arrested when caught at school with stolen jewelry in October 2011 or with marijuana in February 2012. Instead, the teenager was suspended from school, the last time just days before he was shot dead by George Zimmerman.”

Bank of America Reportedly Froze Gun Makers Account

 

 

 

 

” American Spirit Arms owner, Joe Sirochman posted on his Facebook page a statement that is truly amazing. He discusses a problem he was having with the bank as they were holding his merchant account funds for ‘further review’.

After many hours on hold with the bank trying to get to someone who could help he was told by a bank manager, “WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and PARTS ON THE INTERNET”. Needless to say this angered Mr. Sirochman!

We are at a point now in America if we don’t stand up for our Constitutional Rights we are going to lose them forever. When private companies (Bank of America) decide not to honor their obligations to their ‘law abiding’ customers (American Spirit Arms) just because they don’t like what they are doing it is time for us (Americans who believe in the Constitution) to stop supporting those businesses (Bank of America).

Here is his post on the American Spirit Arms Facebook page:

All,
My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms and I wanted to share my recent experience with Bank of America .(which we have been doing business with for over 10 years)…. ”

 

 

  This isn’t BoA’s first foray into the world of politics in general and firearms in particular . Witness their treatment of McMillan firearms and illegal alien credit cards and mortgages .

 

And let us not forget BoA’s cozying up to Drug Lords …

 

Mexican Drug Cartel Laundered Money Through BofA, FBI Alleges

FBI: Drug Cartels Use Bank of America to Launder Money

American Banks ‘High’ On Drug Money: How a Whistleblower …

 

 

  So apparently while Bank of America is more than happy to facilitate illegal immigration , drug lords and money laundering it cannot in good conscience do business with legal American businesses that engage in the legitimate firearms trade . Remember this and choose your bank and financial advisors accordingly .
