Ha ha – I am not the only person to take issue with what I see as Facebook’s Taliban mentality! Read this, in Gawker:
Inside Facebook’s Outsourced Anti-Porn and Gore Brigade, Where ‘Camel Toes’ are More Offensive Than ‘Crushed Heads’
An interesting read, and it underscores my warning about the excessive power wielded by Facebook.
And about the Taliban nature of their policies. I will tell you what I find obscene: the fact that an implied vagina is deemed worse than crushed heads, deep wounds, and excessive blood. That is sick.
American TV is like that, too – they’ll tile out the hint of a buttcrack or a nipple, but show someone drinking horse urine (no kidding – the show is called “Fear Factor”).
Yes, but cable is better!
And I love how Gawker called Facebook 19th century: http://gawker.com/5765057
