"Outsville needs your help to fight facebook censorship"
 
from an email I got..fyi

"We need your help!
Outsville.com has been blacklisted by facebook's algorithm by accident which is reducing our traffic by 90%. FB Support thinks Outsville may be confused with outting LGBT members without consent so it has permanently removed all of the content that contained our domain address.

What can you do?
Please goto facebook if you have an account and try and post outsville.com on your page and then click the request review when the above message appears.
Please Also forward this email to all of your pool playing friends to help us with store traffic. The Shop Sale button take you to our sale items for May. "

Amazing, but sad! 'Outsville' - great name, though appears the Facebook folk don't play much pool. Probably to busy playing with themselves.

Following your suggestion now... hope others do too...

Truly a shame for the good people at Outsville. Hope this is resolved promptly.

I always hate it when racking templates are deemed so politically incorrect.

Outsville a built pretty well known brand with with a number of great products. Don't let the 'politically (in)correct' lefty jags at Facebook control your life. Hate to say, but Facebook is the largest marketing outlet for small one-line companies, not too many other options. Don't give up without a fight.

And they (fb) will gladly defend those who will complain as they are on the same side

Make sure to tell the people at facebook the outsville
team has had their FEELINGS hurt and they are OFFENDED. These words should get them out
of this little jam.

What a joke. Hopefully this can be resolved quickly and
their business is not affected too much.

The more time goes on the more I hate FB.

Shhhhhh, stop trying to make sense. Panic and drama are the norm around here buddy boy. :thumbup:

They should not have algorithms running that are designed to censor people in the first place. They should let the market decide who succeeds and fails. Of course that wouldn't be fair to the dumb, less ambitious members, so it won't be allowed.

It's a shame millions of small businesses have to censor themselves to stay above water due to the thought police -I mean social media.

Best of luck to Chris and the rest of the Outsville family.

If I did Nerdbook I would try to help.
