On Wednesday 4th August 2010 Facebook permanently disabled my Facebook account citing reasons of "harassment" under which they include " unsolicited messages, friend requests, poke or using other functions ". None of which I am guilty of! The only thing they were clear on was that one person had reported me. Now surely in any case when a person is accused in such a serious manner I should first be approached with their "evidence" and then given the HUMAN RIGHT to defend myself! But no, Facebook's tactic is to ban your account with no further communication.... basically asking me to just agree that I am guilty of this accusation!
Now Facebook openly admits in its Help Page that they "have limits in place to prevent abuse of its features and to protect users from potential spam", they also admit that they "cannot provide any specifics on the rate limits that they enforce".
A social networking site that doesn't want you to be too social!!! Its a joke!
When people join such a large and well known social site we place as much trust in them as they do us to behave in way that is both respectful and decent. They are quick enough to accept your money in their virtual games but not so quick to give you the respect of proper communication.
I have pictures of family in my FB account that I have no access to elsewhere, these pics are irreplaceable to me.
Please "sign" this petition to help me get my account back, and help stop this from happening to perhaps you, or someone close to you too. This is not only about the personal things in my account I have no access to elsewhere but more importantly it is about the basic human right of defending myself against wrongful accusations, no matter how big or powerful the accuser!
Thank you in advance for your support, it is greatly appreciated.
