Important JIDF Facebook Account Deactivated AGAIN! **UPDATE**

We had a feeling this would happen today for some reason.

This happens approximately twice a month.

Last time it happened, we lost a lot of important settings, groups, etc.

We called the Chief Privacy Officer @ Facebook who said they will look into it.

If it's not quickly reinstated, we may have to start yet another email campaign.

There were no warnings this time whatsoever. Only many visits to the JIDF by folks @ Facebook.


The account was quickly reinstated a few hours later. Apparently we uploaded a photo which was against Facebook's TOS. Of course, Facebook can give us no specifics whatsoever about the photo in question.

We believe it might have been a photo of Travis Bickle holding a gun in the film Taxi Driver. However, only friends of the JIDF had access to this photo, as it was on a private profile. On that profile, we also posted podcasts explaining that we posted photos from films we like in order to promote good cinema, not violence.

Martin Scorsese is a master filmmaker and DeNiro is a great actor. Apparently one cannot promote art and cinema on Facebook among private friends without running the risk of offending someone and dealing with the inconvenience of losing a massive social network and years of work (temporarily at least).

However, each time this happens, we suffer personal and professional setbacks, especially when things are not restored to how they were (which has happened many times in the past).

This time, we thank Chris Kelly and others at Facebook for their quick help in the matter and reactivation of the account.
