Handful Of Examples.

To understand just a little of the severity here in FB… I’ve compiled a handful of pages we are working on. There are literally 100’s more. Just wanted you all to know it’s not just one or 2. This campaign is not crying wolf. A serious matter that our children or grandchildren can see.

Israel’s Voice. Preparing to take on Facebook.

Antisemitism, Holocaust denial & pure hate pages have been running rampant through social media. We’ve seen a few good organizations get involved, but where has it gotten us ? Just twirling along in a vicious circle.

Won’t mention names, because even we attempted some of these ideas. Blogging the problem & even getting a Jewish paper to write the story (just stayed within our community).

Post such pages in groups asking all of its members to report. Yes, we’ve been lucky quite a few times. But at what expense ? Tedious hours reporting comments, memes, posts then the page. Only to find the same admin start anew in just the time it takes for the suspension to be over.

Creating petitions. Some traveled at the speed of light. We got involved, we awoke a few that weren’t aware, yet some pages stayed intact.

3-4 organizations asking for donations to “build a software system” to help the reporting process. Will that help ? Again the answer is a NO. Who knows FB’s program enough for them to implement that idea & isn’t it something they should have done by themselves ?

Boots on the ground. Live demonstration right in front of FB’s HQ in Menlo Park. We’ve been down that path. Great that we attempted to make a huge statement, but then again. Didn’t grab the giants attention.

Israel’s Voice approach ? Solicit donations to place ads in major global newspapers. Ads on busses and or subway stations in the most populated cities. Billboards, on top of taxi cabs. Anywhere where the world will really awake.

Why did we apply for a non profit 501(c)(3) license ? 1) sense of urgency. 2) eventually have your donations be tax deductible.

Why us verses all the topnotch organizations already in place ? A) they are concentrating in different areas of Antisemitism. B) they don’t see this as a problem. C) their overhead won’t allow them to be as aggressive. D) they just don’t care. WELL, We do care here at Israel’s Voice. We will maintain our current jobs, monies collected for specific campaigns will go there 100%. We won’t stop till we get a direct contact inside FB that will work with us. An open line of communication deciding what is “freedom of speech” and what crosses the line.

Facebook HQ Street Protest Heats Up

Dear Concerned American:
 
Please read the attached press-release.  It has to do with the very foundation of what America  was built upon.  Freedom of speech vs the freedom to practice religion. While the government is shut-down, Facebook continues to run antisemitic hate pages. 
 
Please join us online or in person for the October 14th protest march outside Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
 
Remember, hate is a terrible thing.
Let’s join in peaceful protest with the goal of changing Facebook policy to honor and respect everyone equally.
 
See you at the protest and thank you.
 
Sincerely,
Michael Mendelson

Shame Book Campaign Against Facebook Heats Up
Major Rally at Facebook HQ, Menlo Park
October 14, 2013, 10am
“ShameBook” must be completely socially responsible
 
 
SAN FRANCISCO – October 7, 2013.   An online campaign against Facebook’s irresponsibly lax policy of allowing anti-Semitic hate speech to flourish is not only picking up speed, but now a major protest at Facebook headquarters is garnering support across the globe.
Protest organizer Michael Mendelson says Facebook routinely removes hate pages targeting racial minorities and the LGBT community, but routinely allows anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish and anti-Israel hate pages to stay up online and he is one Jewish American citizen determined to do something about it.   On October 14, 2013 at exactly 10am, Mendelson’s planned protest rally outside the Menlo Park, California headquarters of the international social media giant Facebook, Inc. now includes – what are estimated to be – thousands of boots-on-the-ground supporters.  
“I don’t think Facebook realizes that hate against Jews is being propagated through abuse of their site.   I just wonder if they realize how big an issue this is.”
Fortunately for the African American or Gay American communities, when enough people complain to Facebook, the pages are immediately red-flagged then removed.  All Mendelson is asking for is the same respectful treatment towards the Jewish American people, and implores Facebook to remove anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate pages in the same swift fashion.  Says Mendelson:
As far as I’m concerned, this is nothing less than an online Holocaust, because that tragedy happened simply because no one tried to stop it. Let’s do something today, before it’s too late.” 
Michael Mendelson is confident his message (which is supported by The Online Hate Institute and The Zionist Organization of America) will be heard, and so are thousands of supporters, who have vowed to show up and make their voices heard.  Police and local communities are aware of the looming protest march which is expected to be peaceful.  Says Michael Mendelson: 
“Until meaningful policy changes are implemented, Facebook will be known as ‘ShameBook’.  We’re confident once they pay attention, they will do the right thing.”

TImageThank you again for your support in the campaign demanding Facebook do more to stop the spread antisemitism and Holocaust denial. This update lets you know how we are doing, and we hope you will pass it on to othersto help grow the campaign.

What We Want & What We Need For The Rally

Dear Friends:

Thank you for your continued support and our campaign to get all hate pages to be removed from Facebook.  Facebook routinely removes hate pages aimed at African Americans, the LGBT community and other minorities.  However; when it comes to hate pages targeted at the Jewish people, Facebook is very slow to respond.   Our campaign, “Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages” is a boulder rolling down the hill, picking up speed, getting bigger and bigger and bigger.  Facebook was created by the involvement and networking of individuals around the world.   We believe Facebook can be held accountable in the same way this country was created.  By the people.

On Monday October 14 at 10am, Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages is leading an organized protest, bringing this all important free speech issue to the doorstep of Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California.  Freedom of Speech affects us all, Jewish or not.   Our goal is to force the powers that be at Facebook to pick up a hammer and tear down the wall of hate and harassment which is routinely built on their cyber-property.   Facebook can no longer pretend to be an innocent slumlord, turning a blind eye to the criminals living and committing crimes on their property. The amount of support our campaign is receiving from around the world is astonishing, as it is humbling.

We at Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages believe that once our message is heard loud and clear, things will change.   Remember, we’re not asking for the world.   We’re just asking for the Facebook board to change their rules and implement meaningful changes.   We are coming from the point of view that, Facebook being such a behemoth corporation that they are simply not aware of the problem.

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED IMMEDIATELY:

HRH&ASP is a small cadre of volunteers, passionate with the ideals from which this wonderful country was founded:  Freedom of Speech, without purposefully hurting individuals or groups.   We are literally running on a shoe-string budget and people have been very generous.   What we need now are three things:  Volunteers, Ideas, and funding.  Currently our campaign is being financed out of the pockets and life-savings of a few good behind-the-scenes heroes. Hard-working men and women who still believe in the ideals of a free country.

Simple things like designing and printing posters, brochures with the demand letter, T-shirts, purchasing ads, renting the stage and sound equipment, transportation to the event location on October 14th are currently beyond an arm’s length within our current financial grasp.   As you can imagine, the list grows each day.  That’s why we’re asking you, the person of conscience, to help contribute in whatever way you can.  If you can donate now, you will be guaranteed your place in history.

WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH:

Just as we try our best to keep our schools safe for our kids, our communities safe for our elderly and our public transportation accessible to the disabled, Americans want a safe, friendly and hate-free Internet.   Nobody can completely police the entire world-wide-web.   All we want to do is to get Facebook to wake up and pull the plug on hate pages aimed at all minority groups, including the Jewish People.

Many major individuals and organizations have already lent their support.  A few of them are listed below.  Thank you again for your time and for your support to Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages.

Success is only a few clicks away.

Help us.

Thank you very much for your support,

Michael Mendelson

Thank you to those Individuals and organizations who support Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages including: Online Hate Prevention Institute, Stand With Us and Stand With Us San Diego, Children Of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, Zionist Organization Of America, SFI Students For Israel, Boycott Watch, They Can’t & Sign Petitions To Ban Holocaust Denial From Social Media As Hate Speech (NB: all links go to the relevant Facebook pages)

SHAME BOOK
Interview with Facebook Fighter Michael Mendelson

By Steven Alan Green

Imagine a modern day invention called Facebook that connects everyone around the world. Imagine now that invention is the most successful Internet business of all time. Now imagine sick individuals and hate groups infiltrating this incredible invention and using it to focus hate against minorities and to bully individuals around the world. Tragic stories pop up all the time of a bullied teen reaching their breaking point, ending their pain by taking their own lives. Unfortunately, the story doesn’t end there. It begins there. Because, whether it’s an individual being targeted or a minority group, hate on the Internet can have the same tragic effect. Imagine thousands of people rising up through their computers to lodge a world-wide protest to demand that these hate pages be torn down like the Berlin Wall. And imagine that cyber-protest working, but only on a case by case basis.

SOCIAL MEDIA RESPONSIBILITY:

In the last few years, there have been several tragic stories of young teens taking their own lives due to bullying through social media. As in most of the cases, it’s an accumulation of teasing and abuse (not just one incident) which causes teens like 12-year old Rebecca Ann Sedwick from Florida to take their own lives. But, bullying doesn’t always have to be targeted at an individual to be effective, damaging or even deadly. Every year, hundreds of hate group pages are created by anonymous and cowardly sick individuals, whose sole intent is hurting as many decent people as they can. These hate pages are self-published on Facebook, with the simplicity and ease of hitting the enter button. A few examples are in Mendelson’s blog.

THE PRICE OF FREEDOM IS THAT ACCESS REMAINS UNCHECKED:

The social media giant Facebook has made it a company policy to remove hate pages, especially when there are a number of online registered complaints. “Hate Pages” targeting African Americans, the LGBT and Gay Communities are routinely monitored and removed. However, for some unknown reason and as strange and out of place in today’s tolerant society it is, officials at Facebook refuse to take down hate pages aimed specifically at Jews, Jewish Americans and pro-Israel supporters. Ironically, the founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is Jewish himself. Well, there are few good and courageous people stepping up and doing something about it. Michael Mendelson, a hard-working average American, has taken the lead with his small army of 600, reporting such pages and groups day in and day out. Mendelson’s method? Fight fire with fire. That’s why he created “Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages,” a Facebook page.

Says Mendelson:

“Just as there is only so much one can do to supervise their children’s use due to technology, you can’t stop these hate groups. They keep popping up like cockroaches or weeds. Fortunately for the African American or Gay American, when enough people complain to Facebook, the pages are red-flagged and removed. All we’re asking for is the same respectful treatment towards the Jewish People, and implore Facebook to remove anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate pages. It’s astonishing to me they still exist and flourish on Facebook. And, it’s something that parents of young teens need to be made aware of. Our children’s minds are precious and should be protected from such poison, whether it’s a personal or racial or religious attack. They are, after all our children.”

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Technology didn’t get us into this mess, it’s just made it worse. With the plague of smartphones, our children’s access to the Internet can no longer be completely monitored. Mendelson urges parents to be aware of their children’s “likes” or Facebook groups they are in. Bullying pages can be entertaining to the uninitiated teen, but Mendelson insists it is still the parents’ responsibility to monitor and indeed censor what their children are exposed to.

Says Mendelson:

“Pages and groups that target a race, religion or gender are often filled with conspiracy theories and our children today take the word of a friend or a blog above the actual truth. “

On October 14, at 10am precisely, “Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages” will lead thousands of sympathizers right to the doorstep of Facebook, at their international headquarters in Menlo Park, California. The issue boils down to this. Why is Facebook routinely and automatically removing hate group pages which target African Americans and the Gay Community, but when it comes to hate group pages that target Jews, they seem to turn an anti-Semitic blind eye? According to “Help Report Hate & Anti-Semitic Pages”, a few normally dependable stalwart iconic organizations of American and International freedom of speech and human rights have turned their backs on this obvious blatant abuse of what has essentially become a public trust. Mendelson has repeatedly tried to contact anyone at Facebook Headquarters in Menlo Park, California, but nobody has returned his phone calls or emails regarding what will surely be the cyberspace freedom of speech issue of the year.

Says Mendelson:

“We taking our fight to Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, CA. on the 14th of October and intend on letting the entire world know about Facebook’s apparent policy of allowing these particular anti-Semitic/anti-Israel hate pages to still exist. Is in fact, a de facto endorsement of anti-Semitism, which is a shame for Facebook.”

A POTENTIAL SOCIAL MEDIA HOLOCAUST:

Mendelson estimates that today, of the half-billion Facebook membership, at least one fifth of that cyber-population are Jewish and/or pro-Israel; and it does make this writer wonder where the good business-sense here. There is little if any governmental regulation of social media companies, as they are privately owned businesses. The question for Facebook is different. Facebook is a publicly traded company and if their shareholders knew of Facebook’s seemingly willful ignorance to anti-Semitic hate pages, no doubt they would they feel quite differently about their favorite cash cow. Would they feel proud to own a piece of what some have termed, “ShameBook.

Mendelson:

“I urge everyone to follow the few blogs I’ve written and hope they step up to the plate with us in this much needed protest. You can look for a phone number to call Facebook, but you won’t find one. They are very good at gathering our personal information, just like the Nazi’s did in pre-World War Two Europe, but Facebook can’t seem to put an end to such major flaws. Speak out!! We are now living in a brave new world, where social media is sidetracking the very values parents are trying to instill in their children. As far as I’m concerned, this is nothing less than an online Holocaust. Let’s do something before it’s too late.”

Demand Letter For Facebook Rally Oct 14

A big thank you to ‘Online Hate Prevention’ our demand letter is final. The rally is in Menlo Park, Ca on Oct 14 @ 10am. Please sign & share the petition below. As we are not an organization, we wish you to donate to theirs. Andre has gone above and beyond the call of duty ! To get involved, call Michael Mendelson 754-217-1184

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/stop-racism-and-online-hate

We call on Facebook to:

1. Revert back to the old rule under which ‘hateful speech’ was prohibited rather than ‘hate speech’.

This captures a far wider variety of hate, and Facebook should not allow the use of its platform as a channel for hate against any individual or group.

2. Have a person properly review the first complaint about any content.

Algorithms for identifying hate are fine when they are identifying hate in the system themselves, but if a person takes the time to make a report, Facebook must take sufficient staff time to properly consider it.

3. Be transparent about the way complaints are reviewed.

If a large volume of complaints are made about the same content in a relatively short period of time, then it is fair for a certain number of those to be logged without reviewing the content again, however:
a) Users must be told this is what happen to their report
b) A sufficient number of complaints should trigger a fresh assessment by a different reviewer or manager
c) Additional fresh assessments should occur periodically (based on elapsed time or volume of complaints) and at each point of escalation a more senior Facebook staff member should review the reports.
d) It should be possible for a sufficiently serious complaint (relative to other complaints) to rise all the way up to the CEO and board for final determination if it is not upheld earlier and keeps being reported by a significant number of users.

4. Improve quality control of the complaints process.

Facebook should conduct random audits of complaints and publically report on the percent of complaints that on further review are reassessed. Facebook should also set an expected quality of service for complaint handling and take steps to address the problem when the quality drops below this threshold. We believe there is an extreme bias in favour of rejecting complaints.

5. Work with local NGOs that focus on hate speech in each of the countries in which Facebook has users.

Most of Facebook’s audience (approximately 83%) is outside the United States and the language of hate speech differs country by country. In order to effectively implement its prohibition of hate speech, Facebook needs to directly work with, and learn from, local organisations around the world who counter hate speech. Facebook should also run a more open consultation on policy matters and invite these organisations to participate.

6. Recognise Holocaust denial as a form of hate speech.

Facebook’s continued refusal to acknowledge Holocaust denial as a form of hate speech is a disgrace that must be fixed. This issue will not go away until Facebook fixes it.

And here is the petition that needs to be signed and shared.

Time To Stand Up

How to loose 28% of your followers on Facebook.

‘Help Report Hate And Anti Semitic Pages’ went from close to 15,000 likes to under 11,000 in just under 2 hours. The time it took for Facebook to filter it all out. Here’s the story, parents pay attention !!

Approximately 5 months ago we created a page. Went through all the steps slowly to get it done right. Started out to reach a larger audience outside of our ‘secret’ group that would allow us to take advantage of others to help us report other pages and open groups that are blatantly spewing hate, anti Semitism, Holocaust denial & conspiracy theories. Between asking for additional help, we also post the truth about Israel to contradict BDS’ers, stories of anti Semitism today, stories from the Holocaust to NEVER FORGET and just all around pro Jewish stories from around the world. To avoid entertaining members that may not be their “cup of tea” We’ve filtered out countries, set an age limit (17 & over), put close to 20 admins to ban those that may start trouble or to hide a comment should one use vulgar language. There have been many of times where we took horrific pages from our ‘secret group’ and transferred it to the page for quicker removals.

Trying to enhance our page gearing it toward our demonstration on Oct 14 10am in front of Facebook’s headquarters, we went back into the settings. Added a phone number, email address & links to our blogs. Then went back to check on every other available icon to make sure things were cool. Well…. They weren’t !! Facebook reset the age limit to ALL. Frantic as some of our content might be controversial, we quickly set it back to 17+, then bam !! Over 4,000 were removed, meaning those underaged saw some things they shouldn’t have. We are truly sorry for that & will do our best to make sure this doesn’t slip through the cracks again.

Parents these days are dealing with a whole new problem today with social media & Facebook being one of the worst of them all. There is only so much one can do to supervise your children’s use due to technology. No more do they only have a computer at home (were you can glance) you have armed them with cellphones where they can connect without your knowledge. Are you aware of their ‘likes’ or groups that they are in ? It’s high time you guys get a grip on it’s content. Bully pages, groups that make fun of others, religion that may not be what YOU are instilling in them, propaganda and conspiracy theories ? Don’t know where the list starts nor where it ends. The search bar is dangerous, friends adding them to groups they originally had no interest in and worse… Pages that ‘pay’ Facebook to gather more “likes” that end up in their news feeds. How many deaths have you read in the news over bullying or being persuaded to do unlawful acts due to peer pressure ? Pages/groups that target a race, religion or gender ? Most are filled with conspiracy theories and our children take the word of a friend or a blog above the actual truth.

I urge you all to follow the few blogs we’ve written and hope you step up to the plate with us in this much needed protest. You can look for a phone number to call Facebook, but you won’t find one. They are very good at gathering our personal information, but can’t seem to put an end to some major flaws. Speak out !! We are now living in a world where social media is sidetracking the very values you are trying to instill in your children.

Save the date. October 14 10am Facebook’s HQ in Menlo Park, Ca. Tell your friends. Inform the media. Force Facebook to abide by the very community standards it put in place.

Exposing Facebook’s Lack Of Morals

It’s urgent to get worldwide coverage on this event. Facebook must be held accountable for their blatant disrespect of many using social media. It is so important, that this must be exposed before plan B starts to take shape. Soon internet.org will gain momentum and the world will see 5 billion more users. We have seen social media’s power via the news of uprisings in third world countries. It just may be the cause of WWIII if this continues its course. We urge you all to get involved with this event whether attending, promoting, sponsoring and most important, have this published in every newspaper. The reporting system has a major flaw. Captions as shown here are still up and do NOT violate “community standards”. Hope you are as outraged as we are !!

Many are not aware of the ‘dark’ side of social media, and certainly not the extent of it. Anti- Semitism, Holocaust denial, bullying, credible threats of violence pages, groups and profiles are running rampant throughout Facebook. We’ve created a page about 4 months ago and gained almost 12,000 likes. We have had success in removing many of these pages privately for about two years now. We have just uncovered several prostitution pages with filthy pictures, phone numbers and open email contacts. Some of these pages are ‘sponsored’ (paid to advertise), meaning that you have no choice but to see them, not something one can just block. My 16 year old gets these ads on his feeds. Does this belong in social media? We can monitor our children at home, but they all have smartphones these days. Cyber bullying continues to torment our youth. Amanda Todd took her life 10 months ago, yet these kids persist.

We have successfully removed over 500 pages this past year. With each successful removal the very same admins start anew and are replaced just as fast as we get them removed. That will be just one part of our demand letter & statement that we’ll be protesting. Yet there are well over 1,000 on our list.

Next step of action would be to hold a demonstration in front of Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park. We have started promoting and working with authorities to gain the proper permits. All legal matters have been handled and police protection has been arranged. That’s where your help is needed. We are asking for your support in promoting the event further. We have close to 300 people attending, but want to attract thousands more. (See blog link on the bottom). The date is October 14, 2013 at 10am.

Online Hate Prevention, Stand With Us & Children Of Jewish Holocaust Survivors are also onboard as they are aware of the severity.

We must do this for the safety of our children. It’s our duty to keep FB clean. There is a possibility of another demonstration at the same time in NYC. Will keep you posted on that, but goal remains in California where my friends and I will be.

You may be asking yourself, “it can’t be that bad. So here are just a pics off of these pages. Follow some links for yourself. If you find some broken, it only means we reached success in removing it, but there are over 1,200 on file just as vile.

Beginning stage of our demand letter. Should have it completed very soon.

We believe Facebook is one of this century’s most important communications tools not only in the United States but globally. We believe Facebook Inc has a social responsibility to run the Facebook platform is fair and transparent manner. We commend Facebook for prohibiting Hate Speech in its terms of service, but feel this does not go far enough. We also believe, based on our own observations, that the provisions against hate speech that currently exist are not seriously or effectively enforced.

We call on Facebook to:
1. Revert back to the only rule under which ‘hateful speech’ was prohibited rather than ‘hate speech’. This captures a far wider variety of hate, and Facebook should not condone the use of its platform as a channel for hate against any individual or group.

2. Have a person properly review the first complaint about any content. Algorithms for identifying hate are fine when they are identifying hate in the system themselves, but if a person takes the time to make a report, Facebook must take sufficient staff time to properly consider it.

3. Be transparent about the way complaints are reviewed. If a large volume of complaints are made about the same content in a relatively short period of time, then it is fair for a certain number of those to be logged and dismissed without reviewing the content again, however:

a. Users must be told this is what happen to their report
b. A sufficient number of complaints should trigger a fresh assessment by a different reviewer or manager
c. Additional fresh assessments should occur periodically (based on elapsed time or volume of complaints) and at each point of escalation a more senior Facebook staff member should review the reports.
d. It should be possible for a sufficiently serious complaint (relative to all other complaints) to rise all the way up to the CEO and the board for final determination if it is not upheld earlier on, and keeps being reported on mass.
4. Improve quality control of the complaints process. Facebook should conduct random audits of complaints and publically report on the percent of complaints that on review are decided wrongly. Facebook should also set an expected quality of service for complaint handling and take steps to address the problem when the quality drops below this threshold. We believe there is an extreme bias against upholding complaints, and that that right now so many complaints are wrongly dismissed that a tossing a coin to make the decision would on average give a better result than Facebook’s manual review.

5. Work with local NGOs that focus on hate speech in each of the countries in which Facebook has users. Most of Facebook’s audience is outside the United States and the nature of hate speech differs country by country. Facebook can’t focus just on American partners to assist it in recognising hate. Facebook needs to directly work with and learn from local organisations fighting hate speech around the globe. Facebook should run a more open consultation on policy matters and invite these organisations to participate.
Recognise Holocaust denial as a form of hate speech. Facebook’s continued refusal to acknowledge Holocaust denial as a form of hate speech is a disgrace that must be fixed. This issue will not go away until Facebook fixes it.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Open Plea For Help

To whom it may concern,

My name is Michael Mendelson and I am a concerned citizen that is working to remove hate pages from Facebook. My goal is for this letter to make it all the way to the desk of every major official in government and mainstream media. Today, there are many major issues with social media and Facebook is the main target for now because millions use it daily and they have no one (not even themselves) regulating its content. In it, you will find anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial, bullying, credible threats of violence (including promoting Jihad), graphic nudity, solicitation of prostitution, open targets of ethical, racial and religious groups/pages and profiles running rampant through it. Some pages are so violent that we have contacted the FBI, but to no avail. These pages are still in existence and seen by countless numbers of people every day.

We are a group of over 10,000 (and growing!) that are reporting such pages to Facebook. It usually takes thousands of reports to get Facebook’s attention in order to have them removed. We hope that somehow you can intervene to help us before our protest that is scheduled for Oct 14 at 10am. If there is no way that you can help us before then, then can you please join us at our protest to make them accountable for holding to the very “community standards” they have set forth for all? At this time, there is no customer service with a live operator that can look into our *very* credible violators. We find this to be unacceptable for a company that’s worth billions. Free speech is our freedom in the great United States, but this goes above and beyond. We are not talking about one or two pages here, but literally *thousands*. (on file)

The way things are set up now, *anyone* can create a page or an open group to spew all the horrible things that we mentioned above. If we are lucky with finally getting a removal, a new one replaces it within hours. There is no reprimand for these violators, and all they have to do is start anew. This is a major business that relies on such pages “promoting” by (paying) their causes to gain “likes” and immunity from getting removed. Having said this, yes… We can block a person we don’t want to see, but we can’t close our eye to “sponsored” pages or open groups spewing hatred. And still with the convenient *search bar* they are also clearly visible.

You have to keep in mind that our children are trolling this site via their computers, tablets, and smartphones. As parents, we can not supervise them 24/7. We must take action before more people get hurt. Some have already made good on their threats and the results have been tragic. Do we need another Amanda Todd who took her life almost 10 months ago over this ? Believe it or not, we still fight new pages for her to this *day* that won’t let her rest in peace ! Do we need people to gang up against an ethnic group, gender, sexual preference or religious belief to have a FREE platform to spread hatred around the world? Why hasn’t Facebook been contacting the authorities on true credible threats of violence ? As an American, I hold the company responsible.
We appreciate your time and attention to this very important matter facing our nation and its people in these very “connected” times. I look forward to hearing from you soon and together we can help stop the spread of callous hate and save countless lives.

With regards,

Michael Mendelson
