"Hitler Drinking Game" Groups Draw Thousands on Facebook (again)

Despite international negative publicity the last time this happened just a few months ago, forcing Facebook to take immediate action at the time, Facebook continues to not be proactive on these issues whatsoever. How difficult is it to search for "Hitler drinking game" on Facebook to see the glorification of a mass murderer and trivialization of the Holocaust?

The largest Hitler drinking game group on Facebook currently has about 11,000 members.  It was created by Rik Jones (who considers himself a "Christian" and a member of the "Church of Christ" in Manchester.)  The description explains the "game" and concludes with a definitive "HEIL."

There's plenty of content and posts in the group from vocal Nazi supporters, some of whom are advertising their own Nazi groups, for example, yesterday, Ali Şener (who uses a swastika as his Facebook avatar) wrote:

I invite you all to establish the my new group only for nazi supporters http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001025616384

We urge you to report the aforementioned groups.

As we've repeatedly pointed out in the past with regard to this type of content and those responsible for it, Facebook continues to show double standards, hypocrisy, and lack of concern for their members privacy, safety and security: 
While the page will probably be removed in the next few days, the people who created and took part in it, will, most likely, be able to continue enjoying themselves on the Facebook platform.

Meanwhile, the founder of the JIDF (the only organization dedicated to fighting these issues) has been banned. Facebook cited their rarely enforced (unless mobs of antisemites and jihadists report Jews) their "real name" rule as their excuse for banning him.

Shouldn't Facebook be more sensitive about the privacy, safety, and security concerns activists who expose and fight these issues, and who receive death threats and harassment because of it?  

Ironically, the one thing that would protect Facebook from all the current privacy issues they face, is for Facebook to allow members to use aliases, in order to protect their privacy, safety, and security.
After all, there's over 100 search results for "Santa Claus" and celebrities like Biz Stone (who aren't using their real name) are apparently allowed to break these Facebook rules with impunity.  

Thus, We urge you to support the reactivation of his profile, by joining: "FACEBOOK: BRING DAVID APPLETREE BACK NOW AND LEAVE HIS ACCOUNT ALONE!".
