Lets post away until we are banned, as if we'd lose much. :)
Facebook, the preeminent global social media service, has bowed to pressure and will begin banning posts containing the Confederate flag.
The new ban, which some commenters have called “Confederate Flagging”, will go into effect soon after the July 4 holiday. Multiple violations will result in account suspensions.
Users who send or receive a post containing the flag or its imagery in any form will receive the following notification: “Content deemed offensive to one or more groups of individuals is blocked from public view. This content may include images or links to images that “depict, display, or promote the design and/or content of the Confederate flag in any manner.”
All monitoring and blocking will be controlled by Facebook.
