Facebook Cleanup Efforts Continue

Facebook’s crackdown on questionable profiles has been previously noted here. Not surprisingly, it continues.

Wilfred Drew, a librarian at SUNY Morrisville, lost the account he set up for the library. Facebook’s response:


This account has been disabled, as we do not allow profiles for organizations or other non-human entities. If you would like me to change the name on this account to your own, I can do that and reconfirm it. Thanks for your understanding.


On a side note, Drew received a B.S. from Cornell University according to his resume.

Ethan Durant’s Jesus Christ is also gone:

What am I supposed to tell all my facebook faithful who depend on me for their heaven points? And my apostle Karen? A great injustice has been committed toward the inter-webs by that great gloved hand called censorship!!

Another recently lost profile is Roscoe the squirrel.

    In your rules and regulations, do you specify what can cause a block. I put music videos on my page for Memorial Day since so many were not going anywhere and considered entertainment for the day. I am now blocked on the wall, was that it? I have been accumulating friends who are writers, since my sister, Nancy Taylor Rosenberg, is a famous writer, and they seem to all know her. Also, I have many friends who like to communicate with each other, and I answer if it is for me. Is that reason for a block? I am a fast typist, so I can answer my friends quickly. I also have many relatives on Facebook, so is there a limit now. When I try to find out what I have done, it just gives me different scenarios that could be it… I thought I was blocked due to inbox usage, then for comments, but I did not realize that a post which is not a two way conversation due to lack of a comment, was under the block. It now says that i continued to use something I was warned to not use, so now I am under a wall block. A video was posted which had been on Jay Leno, so my friend and I kidded each other with the content of the video, which was an older woman and her answers which were funny and on public TV. I am just guessing… Another, is a man who was being rude to me, so I was back to him. He could have reported me, but it was mainly in fun, but he just was being sarcastic to me.. I did not report him. Another time I reported a woman, who looked like she threatened me over unfriending her. She looked like she could be a fake idenity, and when I asked her about it, she got hostile. Told me I better watch out that our paths never cross. She asked me to be a friend, I did not ask her. I am very careful about who I get to be a friend, it is usually people who all know each other, or my writer sister, or relatives. Please explain if any of these things are the basis for this blockage? I have to try to comment to find out if the block has lifted yet. I just think that the way this is being handled with these blocks are including people who are not really up to anything but just for entertainment, we just do not know for sure the rules as they do not seem to be written down anywhere.

    I would appreciate the block be lifted, as I still do not know what I did..

    I’m a bit confused by this post since the rules on Facebook are pretty clear: “we do not allow profiles for organizations or other non-human entities”. A profile account is for a person with a REAL name, not other things. For other things, you create a Group or Fan Page. What part of this don’t you all get? The examples you state are quite obviously not people when they tack bull**t onto their profile names (i.e., “Ethan Durant’s Jesus Christ”, “Roscoe the squirrel”,,, and a library duh!). Maybe your people with the elaborate degrees aren’t as smart as they give themselves credit.

    This was sent almost a year ago. I was blocked for a long time, and I was not an organization or anything like that. It has been fine ever since I got back on..I do not know really what you are talking about in reference to my previous situation. I was just blocked for a very long time and was trying to find out why. I do not have anyone nor do I tack on bull***t onto my name..or have anyone that does either.
