OK the title is a bit hyperbolic, but social media censorship of even massive sized groups/followings has gotten out of control.


The official Crossfit corp has something to say about that.

Good for Crossfit. I recently joined FB after a long time resisting only because it was the only way to find some people. Maybe they'll ban me for talking about low-carbing before they do for my political thinking.

WTG CrossFit. It is a sad situation. I do use FB in a limited way for keeping in touch w/ family and friends.

Thanks, PJ. This is awareness we must all have. I applaud CrossFit, as the fundamental right to freedom of speech cannot be threatened if we are to learn and consider alternate views through open discourse. Political correctness takes on a new meaning when we are talking about digitally-based social media and analytics gathering firms like FB, Google, Wikipedia, and many others who subtly refuse and overtly ban active memberships from anyone or group that doesn't embrace shared views. Imagine, they gather all related information and behaviors of their members to use for marketing, targeted ads through the browser based on click history and website visits, but they don't want anyone to stray from the way they believe everyone should think and conduct their lives. They don't care about member privacy, as they want to exploit members by having full control of the message. Behavior like this is unacceptable.

So glad to see a company like this speaking out to FB publiclly! Anyone who puts their business in FB's hands is a fool to be deleted with a whim.
