The policy is not completely clear, but just like Google, Facebook has the last word. “We work to foster an environment where everyone can openly discuss issues and express their views, while respecting the rights of others”, is one of their key theories. Does that work, in practice? Isn’t it much too easy to close down someone’s Facebook-account?
