Facebook says its "Hate Cornwall" page is OK
Finally got a response from Facebook, who tell me that since the "I Hate Cornwall" page directs its venom at a place, rather than a race or religion, there's no problem. "We have reviewed the page and it doesn't breach our Principles or Statement of Rights and Responsibilities," a spokesman tells me. "We also have pages which say 'I Hate Manchester' and 'I Hate Liverpool' and so on."
I'm not sure this is really something to boast about. Particularly when paragraph 3, clause 6 of your Statement of Rights and Responsibilities says:
"You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user."Or the next line:
"You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence."But what do I know? I'm far too old to be on Facebook anyway.
