So I assume you've heard of the new "crisis" in Israel, and you probably took a side already. I am not here to convince anyone of anything, but to ask the question that is in the headline; 2 days ago, I joined a group which it's members believe the Marmara ship to have been a media stunt. Most of this group is Jewish and Israeli, and most of it Joined the group for the whole porpose of supporting their ideas and opinions of what happened. Yet, when some Anti-Zionist people joined this group just to flame it- even pressing those "report" buttuns didn't do a thing. Never mind that: Myself and the Anti people had some funny (imo) arguments. They declared Israel is a mass murderer, I declared they were ignorant. Yet, for some reason, MY account was blocked for spamming/harrassment and now I can't reply or post anything on ANY wall beside myself. I don't believe Facebook really checked my reports, because these people keep on posting there, yet I, who actually believe in this group's causes, and posted related meterials, am prevented from it. I think Facebook should check more closely if and whether people abuse the report system, which imo at least, seems... kinda rubbish. There is nothing better that human logic, and a system lack that. Please share your opinion. ~jimeny

I tend to steer away from these kinds of things on sites like FB, or really anywhere there would be something I say which might offend others, and you know they are waiting to push that report button, not worth losing my rights to use the site over what I call idiots. I tried on here to have a discussion on several topics and found that you can not have a decent conversation or discussion with people on the net, some are just there to cause a problem. Does facebook take sides, who knows but now you are locked out of using the site as you would like. Does not matter I found out what you said if enough people complain out you go.

True I guess... though Facebook is really good for arranging protests, petitions, and sharing information. Kinda sad it doesn't seems to have a very good filtering system.

So you didn't do it before? Because there were some very serious nazi comments for 2 days.
