Our funny af Inappropriate dads page - a group run by my customers who are dads and like inappropriate humour has now been disabled by Zuckerberg! I get it, there have been some posts which are inappropriate, but the admin team have done a bloody good job of censoring them to make them fit in with Zuckerbergs guidelines, the thing is, Marky Z does not have a sense of humour!
I wouldn't care if we were posting shit that was offensive not funny but we are not! (well apart from my Trump meme post which was offensive to trump supporters I suppose).
So for all you dads who were having fun laughing at the inappropriate dads page - we have created it as "our last page got deleted" you will need to find it as a private group and apply to be a member, you will need to be a male and and a dad (no females or joint accounts allowed) you will also need to stick to the rules or else that page will get disabled too.
Last time I annoyed Mark he gave me a ban for a month .. here is what I thought of that!
Yep, I've only gone and annoyed Marky Z soo much that he has now given me me a ban for a month. A whole month without Facebook, how will I cope? The next time I put anything on that annoys him my account gets deleted, no trial, no appeals .... I’m toast!
I know what you are all thinking - what on earth did I post to get me this ban? Well to be honest, not much. It happens to be the third offence in a row though so hence the long ban.
So my first 24 hr ban came for this post ....
Nudity is not allowed. FFS can you see his dick? No.
Second 1 week ban came for this one....
"inappropriate content against community guidelines"
Can you see his dick? No
Last ban (one month - which I am currently serving) came for this pic...
once again can you see his dick no? I was just asking what type of dog it was?
So yes I have now learnt my lesson - NOT to have any laughs about appendages in shorts or tracksuit pants on Facebook.
My next ban will get my account deleted. This made me angry.
It shouldn’t I suppose because I’m an adult and I realise that breaking rules is wrong.
The thing that really upset me though is that you don’t realise how much you miss something until it’s gone. I’ve been on Facebook now for 15 years ... a lot has happened in those 15 years; I met my husband, got engaged, got married, had two cats, two dogs, two kids, lots of travel. Lots of good times with friends and family and Facebook has all that info. If I get my account deleted I can wave goodbye to all those Facebook memories.
A memory like this one from 8 years ago (and yes my son is wearing a pink jumper so what?)
will no longer pop up in my news feed and that devastates me.
Yes for all of you tech heads and super organised mums, I KNOW I should be keeping a back up of a back up from all my devices that have valuable info including photos on them.. but you are talking to a woman who sometimes forgets to check whether she has brushed her hair in the morning!
I also hate the power FB has, the power we gave it. You cannot contact anyone from FB to appeal anything it is a faceless business. It doesn’t care about users and tbh it doesn’t need too... it is more powerful than any other organisation I think second maybe to google.
I shouldn't really complain FB and Instagram have given me access to over 5000k followers for my business who I can reach that I never would have been able to before, it’s just a shame I have to link my personal account to my business one. My business is inappropriate so naturally I am pushing the limits of what’s acceptable with Facebook.
So a word of advice... just make sure any memories that pop up on your feed, you save... save to somewhere you own. Building and sharing memories on Facebook is like nurturing a garden in a rental property... if the owners say sell, you can wave goodbye to that beautiful frangipani and rose bush. It doesn’t matter that you may not use Facebook like I do with inappropriate posts, the fact still remains that if they decide to delete your account or start charging you for using the platform, your memories may well go with them.
Do not worry my lovely inappropriate family I will keep being inappropriate ( I don't know how not to be ) but I will just be sharing links now to my webpage that I own and I can write whatever the fuck I want on.
Would love your support by following my blogs and links.. and please comment below on your thoughts about Facebook, positive or negative x
Lots of love ... Lori , the inappropriate mum.
Ps Mums who get Facebook bans are my kind of mums!
PPS If you have messaged me on FB, apologies for my lack of response!
