just so yall know its because theyre trying to automate the process of removing spam. the problem is that facebook has shitty engineers who can't figure out how to distinguish a real post from a scam post.

What else is new. Facecrap deletes legitimate posts on a regular basis if they don't support the agenda of their leftist staff. People should just abandon that politically biased and corrupt platform altogether.
