Facebook STILL removing breastfeeding pictures

I received the standard warning email today:


You uploaded a photo that violates our Terms of Use, and this photo has been removed. Among other things, photos containing nudity, drug use, or other obscene content are not allowed, nor are photos that attack an individual or group. Continued misuse of Facebook's features could result in your account being disabled.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us at from your login email address.

The Facebook Team

The deleted photograph was not my profile picture, this was a picture out of my personal album. The Official Petition to Facebook has over 5100 members.....does this mean nothing????? And I can't even tell which photograph was deleted, because I have over 30 pictures in my album and it's hard to tell which one is gone.

Let's take a look at this now. My photo did not contain nudity (nothing was showing), it definately didn't contain any drug use. It was not an obscene photograph, so perhaps this was a mistake on facebook's part? Maybe I should ask for an apology.

Good grief. Here is the link for the facebook group.....please join!

Breastfeeding Older Children Survey

Ann Sinnott, whose 15 yr old daughter self-weaned at the age of six and a half, is writing a book (publisher: Free Association Books about sustained breastfeeding, defined as: breastfeeding children 3 years and older. She would like long-term breastfeeding mothers, past and present, to complete a questionnaire at the link below. She would also like completed questionnaires from mothers who are breastfeeding children 18 months - 2 years, provided breastfeeding is open-ended [no decision to wean] or continuation to long-term is being considered.

Please click on the link and complete the survery if it is relevant to you. :)
