Zuckerberg Lax Standards

Update 12:19 26th March 2014: it appears the page has been removed, it’s nice to think our pressure helped make this happen.

Does a cover photo of gas valves in the shape of Jewish stars violate Facebook community standards?

Someone posted a comment on this Sooks, Nooks, and Hoses photo: "I smell shekels."

Okay, so what about this cartoon, then?

Cow CartoonNope.

So what about this cartoon? Surely THIS violates Mark Zuckerberg’s Community Standards??

ZogowitzBut no.

So. . . maybe this circumcision joke? I mean, you’d think that since it’s actually treating the subject of, um, violation, that it must be a violation of someone’s standards??

BabyBut um. No. Really not. Don’t be ridiculous. I mean, REALLY. It’s not THAT bad. Mark doesn’t think so.

Okay then, how about some light Auschwitz Bed and Breakfast humor?

B&BNo? So how about this?

Cockroaches RatsNote the comment on this one.

"They won't eat pork though. That would be like cannibalism."

“They won’t eat pork though. That would be cannibalism.”

It’s really a relief that none of this need offend anyone. After all, not a thing here violates Facebook Community Standards. I know because I reported the page. Here’s the response I received in record time. Three minutes was all it took for me to be reassured that no, nothing here violates Mark Zuckerberg’s standards.

Oh what a relief to know that someone sane is looking after the well-being of us all. No need for any of us to be offended. Facebook sez so.

Community Standards

Yay! Facebook says we don’t need to be offended by this page! I feel so much better now.
