“Ron Paul Blocked by Facebook for Violating Community Standards”
“Ron Paul shared on Twitter that Facebook had temporarily blocked his account for “violating community standards” but he had no idea why. He posted that his account had not received a warning prior, despite the message saying that his account had committed multiple violations.
His Account Has Been Temporarily Blocked for Violating Community Standards
Ron Paul’s Facebook account received the warning on Monday, January 11.
He wrote on Twitter: “With no explanation other than ‘repeatedly going against our community standards,’ @Facebook has blocked me from managing my page. Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified.”

The message he received, which he shared in his tweet, read that his account had “Limited Page Functionality.” The message went on to say: “Due to repeatedly going against our Community Standards, you’re temporarily blocked from creating new Pages and managing your existing Pages. Review our Community Standards to see what’s a violation on Facebook.”
However, Paul said that his account had never received a notice from Facebook before about violations.
He added that the only thing they had posted on the day they received the message was his weekly column called “Texas Straight Talk” that he’s been publishing since 1976.
His Last Visible Post on Facebook Links to a Column Where He Expresses Concern About Recent ‘Social Media Purges’
A post from about four hours before he was blocked shows a column on his Facebook page called “The War on Terror Comes Home.” It’s not clear if this is the column that he referenced on Twitter as being his last post, but it’s the last one that appears on his Facebook page.”
