Vituperation On March - 25 - 2010

Imagine a target painted on my facebook page.

Okay, give me some wiggle room on this one but here is a concept that just came to mind and I could use some help.

Did or did not Sarah Palin violate the terms and conditions of usage at Facebook by her recent postings? Is inciting violence a violation of the Facebook rules? My gut feeling is that she has indeed gone past the boundary most of the rest of us would be held to. My gut is also telling me that it would hardly take any spinning at all to form this argument into a petition to remove Palin’s Facebook page that Facebook would be compelled to honor.

Something here or am I just indulging myself with deluded thinking ?

If we can get her page removed (just imagine the  . . . ) Okay, I caught you guys smiling. Good no?

What do we do next? Ideas? Feedback?

    This is just a bit off topic -- topic of Palin’s Facebook page. However, I thought out of consideration I’d confine Palinism to this thread and not begin littering the POV site with additional Palin posts.

    I was going to post a link to a video I made about Palin but when I got to YouTube I found this clip and began to watch it. I will just say that I was glad I hadn’t had breakfast yet.

    Hang in there.

    Responding to Objectionable Content

    What do I do if I find an explicit, hateful or otherwise objectionable profile on Facebook?

    We don’t want any content like this on Facebook. You can help us out by notifying us of any objectionable profiles. You can anonymously report offensive profile pictures and content by clicking on the “Report/Block this Person” link located at the bottom of the profile page. You will be asked to specify the offensive content. Facebook will review your complaint and will act to ensure all users comply with our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities so that Facebook remains a trusted environment where people can interact safely.

    What happens when I report someone?

    All abuse reports on Facebook are confidential. The user that you are reporting will not know that you have reported them. After the report is submitted, Facebook investigates the issue and makes a determination as to whether or not the content should remain on the site based on our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. In certain situations, the circumstances require more severe action. For instance, users who repeatedly violate our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities can be permanently banned from the site.

    Please be aware that not all reported content will be removed. A Facebook administrator looks into each report thoroughly in order to decide the appropriate course of action. If no violation of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities has occurred, then no action will be taken.

    Ok, I logged onto Facebook and saw so many of her notes there, which one should I read, I certainly have no patience to read through all of her waffling. If you have the name of her inciting violence posts, please let me know and I will report it/them. Please don’t make me read through them all, I beg you!! *sobs*

    The worst thing that could happen to Sarah is to be ignored.

  5. javaz says:

    Not a member of facebook, but it does sound as though she should be reported for abuse of their TOS.

    I doubt facebook will take heed though and treat her as they do normal members, because she is Sarah Palin after all, and they must make a lot of money off of her.

    I’m game
    Oh oh,
    I better not say that,
    she will shoot me from a helicopter.

    There is a button on the left side of her page and you can report the comment as inappropriate content for facebook. I did it yesterday. Here is the page on the left side at the bottom is the “report page” button

      Thanks, Sue! That was easy. I hope it makes a dent. Enough little dents and that gorgeous femme fatale pictured above may be seriously dinged. (We already know she’s dingy.)

    • choicelady says:

      Did it! Thanks for the tip!

    • Vituperation says:

      I am not a member of Facebook and I don’t want to be -- been there done that. I don’t imagine much would happen by reporting her page via Facebook. After all -- she drives a lot of business their way. I am thinking it has to be brought to them outside of their immediate domain and sphere of influence.

      I don’t know for sure. What do you think Facebook might be inclined to do?

      • SueInCa says:

        They are like any other media, if they get enough complaints they will take down a page. I used my daughter’s logon to report the page. It will not do much good, but I did make the gesture.

  8. kesmarn says:

    Vitupe, I was so fixated on that amazing Palin pic for a while that I couldn’t process the content of your article. Whew.

    Now. Yes, I think you may be on to something! It’s worth a try, isn’t it?

    • choicelady says:

      Yes, Vitupe -- where DID you get that photo? I did not know botox allowed your face to move that much. Sure a different look from the Happy Homemaker guise she offers the public!

      • Vituperation says:

        I don’t remember where exactly I got it -- it was a photo I found doing a Google Images search.

        I was putting together a video of Palin. I posted the video at Huffpo when I had it finished under the moniker Jellinek.

        Here’s the video:

      That’s what I was thinking -- it’s worth a try.
