Facebook Censoring Atheist and Ex-Muslim Pages
Sounds like muslims abuse the report tool and FB doesn't do much.

I find it hilarious that they ask for a facebook like when scrolling down that article.

Other than that, thanks, I wait for some serious outlet to pick up the story.

Yeah I was there for it firsthand I follow Atheist Republic and GodSwill on Facebook. Atheist Republic and Ex-Muslims of North America had each other's back and called it out. GodSwill didn't get shut down they just raked fb over the coals for it. Which is definitely appropriate.

> There are about two dozen new members here who were either kicked out of the Amazon forums or quit on account of their discriminatory practices. My offense was to quote passages from Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion or damning verses from the Bible, both of which, I was told, violated Amazon's community standards. There were no specific explanations about the nature of the alleged violations.

I'd say chances are this is an automated process. Enough reports and it'll get shut down and then if enough people complain/appeal it'll be reviewed by an actual human.
Or not. I don't know how things are run over there.

That happened to Facebook God's page as well. Targeted religious assholes who need to defend their helpless omnipotent imaginary friend.
