  1. Deeeeelicious!

  2. My fan page had a piece of m/m art deleted, but it facebook didn’t apologize to me.

  3. Nope, not censorship at all.

    No sireeee!

    The “user operations officers” are just there to make sure you think correct thoughts. No harm in that, eh?

    I used to like Brains Faggots. What a shame that idiot homophobic Yanks have made the word unusable.

  6. Ugh! I hate faggots! They’re so gross!

  7. My grandad, like many other butchers in his day, made faggots to his own recipe. They are still a Black Country delicacy, an essential part of any Black Country Night in a pub or club, and never fried!
    Bostin’!

  8. Damned if they do, damned if they don’t. Wipeout Homophobia on Facebook reports HUNDREDS of instances of hate speech (including use of the dread F-bomb: “faggot”). And if, by so doing, it means that PinkNews gets its precious content interrupted for a bit because FB is now overly-sensitized, then so be it.
    Facebook IS an American company, with
    American monitors, most of whom DON’T speak or comprehend UK English, or Strine, or Anglo-Indian English.
    Get over that – or go sod the lot of yourselves, you whinging poofters.
