    Calm down and read the article. There is nothing that violates Facebook's standards showing. SNOPES is saying it is probably false and they were banned for something else that was contained on the page. You only get one side of the story in this article. That alone makes me suspicious. If they were banned for publishing that emblem, then I'll be the first in line to burn Facebook down. It just doesn't pass the smell test at this point.

    Its more about their selective guideline enforcements. I read the article and saw plenty of examples.

    They deleted a fake topless photo of Jan Crouch from the Jan Crouch's Wigs group on Facebook. So they reposted it with big red hearts over her nipples. Everything's good now.
