My ridiculous Facebook case

What was the matter, really?
I wanted to communicate
by poetry and pictures of some beauty,
but people were offended
and reported me for nothing,
for no bad intentions,
for some accidental nudity
without a trace of sexual intentions.
Thus I was reported for the beauty of my art,
for love of beauty was my only crime and weakness,
so I was disabled, blocked and exiled
with admittance back on the condition only
of a snapshot of a legal ID,
but I am not American but a most foreign citizen
and have made no transactions and paid Facebook nothing,
so they have no business in demanding my ID.
I must refuse it both for personal and reasons of integrity,
and I can manage without Facebook,
while their treatment of a generous and loving user
interested in digital communication only
is no good publicity or credit for the Facebook formalism.

Thanks, Ashe, but Facebook is not American but international. Mark Zuckerberg is American. If he imposes American rules on international members, who have had nothing to do with America, he violates international fair play democracy and is a dictator, whom I can not accept as such.

I already sent this reply to you privately. but I think it should be displayed publicly as well. You apologized, and that's all right.

I agree with you, but Facebook is American and as such we have to abide by their strange rules. I think there might be better outlets for your art.
