This AD was created and published in the early morning hours via Facebook on October 15th, 2020:
I was pretty shocked that my AD never reached publication.
MY AD WAS REJECTED
I woke up the following morning to these notifications when attempting to check Facebook insights (statistics):
As of today I have had my account restricted for my Christian beliefs and political thoughts.
There was nothing "unusual on my account" that warranted being placed on a blacklist.
Even further, I have had zero rejections for violating content policies.
I have on multiple occasions attempted to have Facebook resolve the issue and while there is an appeal process (which is unnecessary given I have not violated any policies for being a Christian), the "help" is cyclical. The only assistance I ever receive is an "Account Quality" link, where I enter my e-mail address for security identification purposes. This link shows up as a red error icon and tells me to try again at a later time. I'm still trying today, 3 weeks later, with less then a week-and-a-half before I miss the appeal deadline, which at that time I forfeit and I am banned for good. I have been told that there is no other way.
UPDATE: As of 11/13/20 - the glitch mentioned above was fixed, however, the e-mail recovery code link is now conveniently having technical issues. As a result of a 2nd "technical glitch" in their system, my account ban remains unresolved.
This is something that the all-mighty, all-knowing, and powerful OZ (Facebook) has refused to resolve in time to prevent my business account from being put on "social-media house-arrest."
Way to force someone out of free speech by oppressive obligation...
And, thanks Facebook for the "free speech" platform... or was that only the "free speech" that you like to hear?
