One of our supporters recently sent this letter to Facebook’s Australian office after we were able to supply him with the address.
This is in a period when the tragic killing of a serving soldier in London apparently by extremists was hijacked by the motley collection of low-life street thugs known as the EDL, whose equally stupid Australian counterpart is the ADL. This is in a period when racist comments were made to and about an Indigenous footballer and sadly were followed by matching remarks from prominent commentators. This is after we have had a spate of racist incidents on public transport.
And of course the bogot bottom-feeders that infest Facebook have been taking full advantage of these events.
So our supporter took them on at various sites for these and other matters where they gather but so concerned was Facebook at the prospect of losing their bogot customer base that they fried his account.
I have to write to you by snail mail because you do not publish an email address nor do you have a phone number to call. You have one billion customers but no help desk.
I have been banned by you on several occasions, the first for daring to suggest to channel 9 they should show the greenpeace anti rubbish commercial. I believe you banned 100 or more users that day.
More recently a race hate page was set up on your system. I found that page after the Brisbane Times ran a story because the anti-Islam rally the page organised had zero attendees. On the race hate page the organisers have advertised they are calling for recruits for a secret society to wage war against Islam in Australia. Upon seeing this I contacted several police departments, a dozen or so politicians I know and some news outlets. And then you banned me. You leave a race hate page running and you ban the people trying to protect society. I couldn’t inform you because you banned me and to inform you of anything I have to log in.
You require on one of the accounts that I provide government photographic ID.
ASIO, the AFP, my local police and my local members of parliament have told me it is illegal for you to ask for photographic ID, and most especially as you had no Australian address, no Australian contact phone number not even a phone number in the USA. So you wont be getting photographic ID.
As for phone numbers, I like to be a part of the 6.3 Billion people who don’t have a mobile phone.
Since finding the race hate page being run on your system I have contacted ASIO, because it is establishing a terrorist organisation. I have contacted the CIA in the USA because the race hate page is recruiting citizens of the USA in the USA. I have contacted the FBI because of the USA citizens on that race hate page. I have contacted the Australian federal Police because you are in contravention of many laws by allowing a race hate page to exist, by asking for government photographic ID, by banning Australians from trying to report law infractions. Ditto with the Queensland and NSW police. All the major media outlets are aware of your illegal practices and your total disregard for Australian law and Australians trying to fight racism. Please restore both accounts, I will decide which I want to keep. Please cooperate fully with ASIO, CIA, FBP, AFP and all police departments who contact you and please provide an Australian phone number where concerned citizens can contact you directly without having to get banned because you have no contact address and no way of informing you what illegal actions are happening under your protection.
If you were watching a recent episode of ABC’s The Checkout you will note that even the redoubtable Chaser team were unable to crack the Kremlin of the West.
Yet ironically parts of the Moscow Kremlin these days are freely accessible to locals and foreign tourists.
Here’s some screen grabs as Craig Reucassel tries to engage the mysterious Facebook minions.

Also remember #FBrape, the Twitter campaign we featured recently? Writing to advertisers and letting them know when social media is being irresponsible does work.
Mind how you go… 😉
