Submission + - Noted Sci Fi Author banned from Facebook for joke about chiggers (imgur.com) 2

sv_libertarian writes: Military science fiction author, Michael Z Williamson, has become a victim of Facebook's incomprehensible censorship tools. While pages calling for the death of various people, and openly espousing racism remain up, MZW has twice now been handed 12 hour posting bans over judicious use of the word "chigger", which refers to a blood sucking creature much akin to a Congressman, but much more irritating. Apparently this has set off all sorts of alarms in their censorship software. I wonder how many people who aren't well published authors with a large fan base get sucked up in this crap? Linked images are of course screenshots describing the offending posts and bans.
