'Band Fags!' Banned From Facebook
This has gotta make you wonder if the employees Facebook hires to screen the site's profiles and fan pages are actually paying attention. Openly gay writer Frank Anthony Polito created a Facebook profile in 2008 in support of his novel BAND FAGS! It took Facebook two years to find that they have issues with the profile's content.
Kenneth in the (212) has published a statement from Polito:
"While I understand that the word "fag" is offensive to some individuals, I find it ridiculous for Facebook to deem my fan page a "violation" of terms without further looking into matters. This is clearly a violation against me as a gay author.
I would contact Facebook with regards to this matter, but they make it next to impossible to contact them regarding ANYTHING on their site."
