Farewell Facebook...

I just got this message on Facebook. Guess that's it. They're cracking down on folks with fictitious names

Your Account's Temporarily Suspended

It looks like you're not using your real name on Facebook. We require everyone on Facebook to provide their real first and last names so people always know who they're connecting with.

In order to reopen this account, you'll need to send us your real name and a copy of your ID.

Dear Facebook Idiots

One would think people at Facebook understand how intellectual property works. If you do not think up an idea you don't own it and whenever one is using intellectual property owned and registered by others there are always strings.

The notion of a real name is so silly I think I want to hear Facebook argue the issue on the merits in one of those so called courts of law. I would like to see Facebook produce a witness that contradicts the plain common sense truth that:

1. When a body comes out of a womb there are no real names tattooed to it.
2. No deity from on high drops out of the clouds to provide bodies real names in the delivery room.
3. When one is born parents or guardians think up a name.
4. A name thought up by parents or guardians is owned by parents or guardians.
5. Parents or guardians register names they think up as persons in states which are members of the United States.
6. When parents or guardians register a name some of the bundle of rights for ownership is surrendered to the state where registered and United States.
7. No parent or emancipated child can elaborate on rights surrendered because no one is ever provided a full and honest disclosure of any bundle of rights surrendered to a state which is a member of the United States for any persons or property placed under its protection during birth registration.
8. There is no law which requires or compels any sovereign, free, and independent American people to self identify using any name they do not own.
9. Free, independent, and sovereign American people can choose to:
a. Self identify using a name that is not theirs because it is thought up by parents or guardians, owned by parents or guardians, and registered in a state which is a member of the United States at birth; or,
b. Self identify using a name they do own because it is their own creation, owned wholly by self, and not registered in any state which is a member of the United States.

In order to prevent arguing an impossibly absurd notion of real names before a tribunal of law Facebook will need to reopen the account and add a feature which allows me to change any name I use whenever it pleases me to insure I am using a real name at all times.


So weird they would ask for copy of your ID. :/

you are not the only one


Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

Stopped a While Back when they asked me to pay

$70 bucks to fix a problem with hackers taking my account over. Its a free account so I told them to go take a hike. They wouldn't deactivate and let me create a new account. Tired of all their games against my privacy, too. Bye bye Facebook.

I use the

I use the https://www.teapartycommunity.com/ page now for most my politically oriented posts. It looks a lot like Facebook but without the trouble that Facebook brings us.


Are realizing they have overstepped their control BS.

Ideas are more POWERFUL than control. IF NOT YOU WOULDN'T BE READING THIS!

Don't be stupid, but be real and share your thoughts.

WTF else is life and community? And WHO is trying to destroy THAT?

Let's get real.

Facebook, "social media" and spying

Privacy considerations can and should be given appropriate consideration whenever information is posted on facebook or other such "social media". It is known that they are in cahoots with the CIA, NSA, and other NWO/DC criminal regime secret police to help gather sundry databases concerning their American subjects.

If you can do so without them, by all means find ways to bypass farcebook and similar agents of government/corporate intrusion. When enough people do this, they will finally learn that there are profits to be had in honoring and respecting their customers' privacy, and they will begin to have second thoughts about collaborations with the Secret Police apparatus under the NWO/ Wall St. "government" headquartered in DC. Until then, however, realize that accounts with farcebook serve THEIR interest, not yours!

Should we have the freedom?

To set up a website that demands real names?

Gilligan's picture

yes. and we also have the right to not use such a website.


Google is government.

I totally disagree with this

we all know that Facebook is collecting our data for advertising and other purposes, and the NSA is using it to perform social connections and monitoring, but it is a huge force for spreading information.

Only put on there what you want people to know, and only interact with people what you know will be monitored

We only live our lives so long, and the chance to interact and find like-minded people to help spread the word of liberty is too great an opportunity to pass up. I won't let the fear of surveillance stop me from embracing technology platforms, but I will fight to restrict the government's ability at every turn.

Guess it's that time then...

To delete the old facebook. Been contemplating deleting CIA-Book for a while now. My name there is Michael Revere (not real), but if they don't like that? Fuck em...

reckon folks should create a

reckon folks should create a global "cancel facebook day", once every year, all those contemplating should wait.....if i hadnt already done so, i would have loved to have participated in a thing

pertition the "representatives" for a national/global holiday.........i am offcourse utterly and totaly joking, but thats not that i wouldnt have loved to see that

My fake name matches my fake email address.

I have a real facebook I rarely go to. It's just family and close friends. Pretty boring stuff.

The bad thing is google and facebook and many other sites won't let you sign up unless you have a mobile phone number.

Then you have to steal Granny's cell or some other elderly relative's to get an account. :)

bait and switch, get your

bait and switch, get your hooks in, then when its dug in deep enough, "change the rules of the game"

How many folks would be using facebook, how sucessful would they be, how quickly would they have grown, if they not ONLY, FORCED(without choice) you to give YOUR details, AND prove it too

This is a general mentality i will always fight against, it will be the mechanism used to shut people out from goods, services, and culture........"you can have this, but heres the catch, you dont have to if you dont want to, but you'll not get that good, that service or that culture, if you make the choice that exclude you from these things"......the illusion of choice

Choice is choice, power, profit or any kind of greed will NEVER trump that........untill i see a true choice mentality from government, i wont have faith in the system, would rather go without it

that would be one of my "terms", even though life, liberty and happiness should be self evident, in that regard........i suspect some folks dont mind being dominated as long as everyone pretends they have real freedom, as long as they have the physical life, and the illusion, but i dont curse them, its not their fault a handfull of people have positioned themselves to take away their options

that goes for coporations doubly so


scan your id and change the name to the fake one you used.
nothing illegal about lying to cia-book.
then demand an apology.

As if they don't know us all

already. Privacy is long since gone.

I actually doubt this is true, unless you used some dumb pseudonym like Adolf Hitler or something.

It's true

My name was Betty Liberty III, then they made me take the III off. Now it's the whole thing.

Are you good with Photoshop?

You should scan your ID, replace your photo with a photo of a middle finger, and replace your name with a big "FCUK YOU!"


That's a brilliant idea!

On Facebook?

Still? Really?

I deleted my real account

I deleted my real account about 18 months ago. I do have a fake name account but no connection friends. I use it to comment on political post from politicians.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Never signed up

Seemed too freaky.


I also nuked my account.

All rights reserved and no rights waived.


Killed mine several years ago. At the risk of not staying up to date with my kids and their significant others.

Leave it to the gunvernment to be joy killers. I would like to be able to use the Interweb to stay in touch with them, but not at the expense of privacy. That's where I draw the line.

Hecks, it creeps me out enough already that they can monitor emails and track my cell phone location. Sure - the gov had a hand in developing the Internet, but it makes me think they did it knowingly, for that very reason.

Left one year ago...

will never go back!
