Nice to hear that you support allowing ISIS and Al Qaeda to use Facebook as a recruitment platform. After all, the marketplace of ideas will punish them.

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.
Facebook is not the gov't. They are a private business. You can't have censorship or your first amendment rights broken by a private business.

Well, if ya do change the name of the company, be careful in doing so. Since you carry those great caliber tips, I was thinking.....High Caliber.....might be a great name,,and then it struck me,,might be confused with an NRA ad,,

I thought refusal to trade was an illegal act in the public marketplace?
Seems like a good winnable law suit if F***b^^k is refusing to accept you as a paying advertiser.

Predictions are that it will be broken up to a news division and some kind of something
else with a blockchain permission consensus to speak, post. Translation - a CNN where
the diaper change will rub up against the climate change, vaporizing itself into a black hole... ...just guessing.

One choosing where to trade is a big deal,
performing efficiencies' in perfecting product sustainability has its merits way beyond a
dying identity of it's free to use.

I want to Thank everyone who stepped in and asked FB to review our site.... The issue was finally worked out Saturday afternoon and we were placed on the white list so the algorithm will leave us alone...

FB took us out Monday and as far as I can tell it was related to someone else's post that had our domain and a photo of our "Make Pool Great Again" hat. Her post was removed and when she reposted we were blacklisted and her post was removed again.... The other possibility floated by a FB tech is that the algorithm thought that Outsville might have been a term for outting members of the LGBT community without their consesnt...

They never could tell me what it flagged but they could tell me that we had not been reported for anything on any of our accounts and none of them had "notes" so it was not anyone being vindictive or trying to play PC police....

It has opened my eyes that our decision to stay small has to be revisited. I like being able to make small changes as more pro players use our products and give us feedback.. This has kept us from looking to larger retailers like Seyberts and Pooldawg since I don't want anyone stuck with a bunch of inventory and "there he goes changing chit again". That will change 3rd or 4th quarter more than likely.....

Hope all of you are doing well and shooting them straight... We have a few things coming but man R&D is slow going right now as we are staying busy.. Who knew if you started a pool and billiards company you likely would never have much time to play the game after that =)

Thanks again =)

The best way to fight Face Book is to not be a part of it. I have never been a part of it and life is good. Don't need it and don't want it and don't understand the worlds addiction to it.

There are other venues.

Just saying....

Except that they can since all those things are still under some laws for decency and hate speech and what the platform allows. Business are still regulated to make sure they don't discriminate with hiring and firing and can set their own rules for what is OK or not. For example the forums, you can certainly post things that are rude and annoying here but there is no law that will keep you or anyone else from being banned by the mods.

If you rely on a privately controlled company with arbitray self-interests and no strict money-for-service contracts for your business, you deserve to be bitten in the ass.

If you think that "traffic" has to do anything with "success" or you rely on ads for you business, you deserver to have your nose bitten off.

Please rely on something else to drive your business, for example, real stores selling your stuff

At any rate, it's good to hear (and unsurprising) that this got worked out.

In related Facebook news, this just in over the wires (in case you missed it):
A vulnerability in Facebook's WhatsApp messaging app made it possible for attackers to spread surveillance software to mobile devices through a phone call.

While WhatsApp users cannot check whether their device was affected, there are certain red flags users can spot that may indicate a mobile device is being manipulated by a third party.
