Temporarily Faceless

**The following rant is based on recent false and totally unfair claims made by an anonymous person regarding my artwork on Facebook, which subsequently resulted in said Facebook account being disabled.  Reader discretion is advised.

Apparently someone had an issue with some of the artwork I've posted on my Facebook account, and so... without checking the claims for validity, giving me fair warning, or any notification at all, they have disabled my account.  I only found out when I tried to log on.  Yeah... rude.  So... I am in the process of disputing this, and hope to have it back up asap.

*heavy sigh*

It seems that if someone/anyone makes a claim that artwork is obscene or offensive... which violates the 'Rules & Standards' of Facebook, it gets the chopping block without question and apparently, without even investigating the claim.  I would laugh at all this if I wasn't so frustrated and pissed off with them.  It doesn't seem right that any person could make such a claim as this, without Facebook at least first checking for themselves, but that's the way it is, I s'pose.  Anyone who has seen my work knows that this claim is complete bogus.  I just hope this headache will be resolved quickly.  Until then...  you can still follow my art posts here.

Sorry 'bout this.

Just wishing you a Happy New Year and a fast comeback to FB. Have fun Jen!

Thank you, Carlos! It's been quite frustrating, indeed. Still waiting for my reply from them... I guess the holidays slowed things down? Happy New Year to you, as well.

Well, with FB I think the blocking policy it's not too fair and you never know what will happen. A friend of mine told me that his first account was blocked just because he played too much FarmVille (which is a really strange reason).
Anywho, let's hope for the best.
