Facebook killed my Vincent Grimmly page earlier this year, because they don't want people using stage names. Because they really don't care about people's privacy, despite their smarmy lip-service.
Yesterday they killed my personal page (temporarily I hope) because of "spam." If you don't know, if you post on Facebook too quickly, they automatically block you for some time because they think you're "spamming."
This time, I was blocked, then they said they'd text me a passcode and I could get back in. After typing it in, then THEN said I can get my account back if I send them a picture of my face and someone will EVENTUALLY get around to taking a look at it.
After reviewing my photo, they said they'd reinstate my account ONLY if I sent them a copy of my driver's license, birth certificate, or passport. The astonishing hubris of Zuckerberg never ceases to amaze.
I hate the hell out of Facebook. They've become a monopoly and have zero respect for freedom of speech or your privacy or safety. But if you've been paying ANY attention lately, you already know that.
