do i still exist? day 5

on friday afternoon, i attempted to log in to facebook only to find that my account had been disabled. i was given no warning. all traces of me were apparently immediately deleted from the site. i am told that i have disappeared from all my friends' lists, all comments made by me are gone, etc. friday morning, i was there. friday afternoon, it's as if i no longer existed. how stalin-esque.

i was rather unceremoniously informed that i have been de-facebooked. when attempting to log in, all i got was this message:

Account Disabled. Your account has been disabled. If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit our FAQ page here.

that's it. the faq page informed me that i have, apparently, violated facebook's statement of rights & responsibilities. there is no specific information as to what i specifically did to do that. i was given the option of filing an "appeal" by sending an email to facebook. i sent the email on friday afternoon. i think it's reasonable to expect them to tell me the reason why i've been de-facebooked.

it's day 5 and still no response.

It is so odd. Yes, you did vanish from my list.

Go back to your blog.

I'm not liking FB all that much lately.........what with the hacking issues and the new format that you probly don't know since you were defaced

WTF happened to you? I was just sending you this amazing link to an Indian version Billie Jean, and I couldn't. Was it something I said?
