  • FB ban for the words "Fat Boy" and "Chrome Whore"... Seriously

    I was on The RSC Facebook site yesterday and the admins were talking about concern over censorship and maybe going to a private instead of public FB group. Apparently member(s) were banned from FB for at least 24 hours merely for typing "Fat Boy" (you know, the actual model of HD).

    I thought this was preposterous so I typed "Fat Boy Fat Boy Fat Boy".... Nothing else.... That's it...

    And Wham I get blocked for 24 hours. Apparently I also used the term "chrome whore" in a post in December and these two "offenses" caused me to get banned.

    No way to contact FB about this or appeal... Just pure and utter censorship and there is No free speech on FB any longer.

    I made a MeWe forum for buying/selling Yamaha parts and bikes....

    I want you to join my group on MeWe: https://mewe.com/join/yamahamotorcyc...ndbikesforsale

      Did you mean Face Puke?
      Never liked the Face Puke!
      Does not surprise me at all, with all of the political correctness now a days and blaming everyone else, rather themselves.

        Just spell it wrong enough to throw the algorithms off but still able to get your meaning across eg: Phuckoff.

            The US is not headed in a good direction! Few of the politicians have the balls to stand up to big tech or the screaming mob of the “protected” classes. Common sense is gone. Name calling is the norm, while anyone who refuses to adopt the politically correct language is accused of some sort of phobia, ism, etc. Debate is extinct....censorship is the new strategy. Much more to come!

                Censorship has been coming in for awhile. Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow censored for using the word "cocaine" in a song. Others that I just can't think of right now.
                I'm on MeWe and hit up your group.

                  I'm not on social media (somehow my name is on Linkedin, but I have no record of a username or password), and find no use for it, as it is an invasion of my privacy and , in my opinion, a refuge for pea-brains to malign and harass others with impunity. I wonder how teen suicides rose when 'social media' raised it's ugly head?

                    I have never been on the facebook.
                    I believe that I'm doing just fine anyway.

                      I don't have a FB account as I really have no interest in it. I came very close when the old site was scheduled to go down and this site had not materialized yet. I'm very thankful that we have Rock River Powersports, Bubba, and the others here that stepped up and made this place a reality.

                      I hate the idea of censorship for this very reason. Those doing the censoring don't even know what it is they're censoring. I'd like to think as a functioning adult (I know some of you may laugh at that idea) I can decide for myself what I chose to listen to and acknowledge without the need for others to do it for me.

                        I’m betting all the Harley FB pages are getting wrecked with this confound censorship.

                          The problem is you are shiny shaming those poor chrome whores. Please remember, by not using hate speech you are contributing to a more inclusive society; your unquestioning compliance is greatly appreciated.

                                I'm addicted to Farcebook, so many friends and family are on it it is hard not to be on it. I'm on MeWe too so I'll look up the group.

                                        Went to FB, and on multiple pages where they are about Fat Boy bikes there is not one post with the name in posts. They’ve been filtered out.
