Let me just start by saying, this block has nothing to do with boobs or breastfeeding. Stand down, fellow lactivists. Stand down.
Now, stand back up EVERYONE. As usual, this, my fifth 30 day block, is as a result of me violating absolutely no Facebook policies.
This photo elicited a lot of strong responses, but not for what I would've figured.
I was a smidge concerned that folks would be upset that he is naked, but I covered his penis and nothing else considered private (or a violation of FB policy) is visible. Turns out, I had nothing to worry about on that front. Nobody even cared about that.
Their beef was that he appears to be so angry. In fairness, there's no way for anyone to know that, in reality, he was not actually angry at all and it was just a fluke shot that makes him appear so in that moment. I have another shot in which he was sneezing, but looks like he's screaming right at us. However, on the thread, I did explain that. Further, and most importantly, even if he were actually as pissed as he looks, displays of anger are not violations of any Facebook policy of which I am aware. And it's completely odd to me that people reported it for such. I do, in fact, know that is what the reports were for, as I received messages from those who reported stating as much. Stupidest block ever.
For those unclear as to what a ban entails, here it is: the offending account, my personal account that I use to run the page, is blocked from posting on the page, on my personal page, commenting anywhere, PMing, friend requesting, or even liking anything. I can do absolutely nothing on that account for 30 days. If that were the only account from which I admin this page, Zen Parenting would be shut down for those full 30 days.
So, that's it. No big scandal. Just another day at Zen Parenting for me. And I'm not in the blogger in-crowd, so, unlike some who get banned for seven days and light up FB with their outrage and the outrage of others over their mistreatment, my fifth 30 day block will go, again, largely unnoticed. Asinine. All of it. Asinine.
