    Maybe others were aware of this but I just saw it.  It occurred today evidently.  Link below.

        That's not what this is about Grace. It's a form of censorship. They've taken down political Pages, not Profiles.

        I would think this would get a better response on the Topical forum.

          Taking down political pages:  That's definitely covering their tushes. Private enterprise. They own the sites, and I'm not surprised that they are rendering their sites unavailable to Russian hackers, Chinese hackers, and bots in anticipation of the upcoming election.

      I read the story on the link and I say, "Hooray, it's about time!" There are those of us who want to carry on decent conversations with family and friends without the constant barrage of political harassment from hateful people who think its not our right to to believe anyway but theirs. I notice that both Facebook and Twitter aren't targeting just one persuasion, but both conservative and liberals who are known to be obnoxious.
      For example, I just happened to mention to my right-winger cousin that I am pro-choice. She took it fine although she is pro-life, but a militant male "friend" wrote a ridiculously long, ugly haranguing opinion of me on my profile page and shared it. He became so obnoxious that I unfriended him. I think it is uncivil people like him as well as the problem with Russian hackers' interference in U.S. elections that caused the so-called censorship.
      These two are privately owned social media and they are making it clear that they want people to be civil on THEIR media sites. With freedom of speech comes responsibility. We can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater, but when one treats other people so rudely and uncivilly, one is violating their civil rights. It is only right that people who are just on these sites to harass people who don't see things their way should lose their privileges.
      I also think that the upcoming elections are causing Facebook and Twitter to cover their own a$$es.

    Facebook will die a death if this continues. They should remember Myspace and its rise and fall

    I think it is somewhere between censorship and housecleaning.  Those accounts straddled the line between real journalist and crackpot conspiracy theories -- so they may have just become more trouble than they are worth.  Afterall they came from different pars of the political spectrum and some were party-neutral.
