Naturalnews.com got banned for posting a quote from Gandhi?
Pfft. What a joke. I wouldn't believe this for an instant. That particular quote is already on multiple people's FB page (none of which have been
suspended), it's a part of the historical record, and quoted in Google Books, Alibris, the Library of Congress, etc.
You are being trolled, people.
Natural News could have been suspended for any other number of violations of FB's T&C. Especially relating to complaints about their promotions of
dubious snake-oil products, plagiarism, spamming, etc. Natural News promotes a LOT of snake-oil remedies. I wouldn't trust that site to tell me the
time of day.
You notice how NN states their suspension was by a letter from FB for violating FB's 'community standards', but then DOESN'T provide the text of
that letter? Did the letter from FB specifically
state it was a quote from Gandhi that got them banned? Can WE SEE THE LETTER? If not, I call
BS. Oh they got suspended for something alright, but NN is trying to misdirect you over what that reason was, instead making you believe it was some
plot by FB to re-write history.
FB's community standards
Sorry, but I don't see anywhere in that list a bannable offense for Gandhi quotes.
To think they "got banned" for posting a Mahatma Gandhi quote - JEEBUS people quit being so damn GULLIBLE. Natural News is playing you. They are
milking this for all the publicity they can, and playing the lunatic fringe for sympathy rage.
Naturalnews.com - apart from their adverse relationship to the truth - may even have been suspended during Facebook's purge of companies buying fake
Back in August the company announced there would be a major crackdown on FB pages buying fake "likes".
Facebook's Fake 'Like' Problem Is Real Serious --
And There's A Crackdown Coming
Facebook Says “No More” to Fake Likes and
Not saying they did, but the timing coincides with other companies receiving similar bans (Youtube and Twitter also just conducted a sweep of all fake
"likes" and "followers", and several high-profile performance artists just lost a large number of their fake views - YT itself purged over 2
fake views). If this was the case with NN, suspended for unethically buying fake likes, then good.
