Facebook censors Ghandi Quote and suspends account
Original post made by Ed Pickett on Jan 3, 2013
The post that riled Zuckerberg is one from Mathatma Ghandi's autobiography. Ghandi said
"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."
OK, Zuckerberg doesn't agree with that. But does that justify his censorship of the quote and the suspension of the user's privileges.
Apparently Facebook's community guidelines include the censorship of conservative thought.

Really? Slow news day.
I'm sure Zuck was monitoring natural news' fb page personally just to offend Ed.

You obviously don't understand Facebook's filtering software. If you did you would not make such an off-the-mark post.

Oh, you are obviously so ahead of the curve.
Explain to us dumb folk how FB's "filtering software" relates to "there is hell to pay if you even think about posting anything that offends Zuckerberg's sensitivities"
