Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as much as you wish on FB, or even propose racist views but when you demand democratic rights, it apparently offends someone........curious! This is approximately (couldn't copy and paste it) what I wrote and asked for people to share:-

"As a British subject residing in Europe, the vote on the 23rd of June could have profound consequences on my future status in France. I hereby call upon Her Majesty's Government to take steps which would permit all UK Nationals living in mainland Europe, the right to participate in the forthcoming in-out referendum."

Is this too controversial? On reflection, this also makes me question their control and censorship................how were they able to stop the post before it appeared? I obviously don't believe that there are a group of individuals looking at every post that is submitted so, as far as I can see, there are two alternatives. Firstly, there are key words in a passage being automatically flagged and being brought to the attention of the admin, before being published. The second is rather more sinister.........are MY posts being monitored? I would appreciate anyone who can throw some light on this situation...........FB don't seem to be too illminating.
