Facebook Has Deleted "Boycott BP" - 800,000 Fans Left Hanging

This group was created with the intent of sending a clear and strong message to BP and to Washington that what has happened in the Gulf has to stop everywhere. People from all over the world shared video clips, pictures, and frustration over what has been seen incredibly slow process to an ever growing economic and environmental disaster. Boycott BP and it's creator, Lee Perkins, have been focused in several interviews recently, one of which was done with Diane Sawyer. To say he has made a large impact in a short amount of time is an understatement. The question is: Why did Facebook suddenly take down the site? Some will call it a media black out of what is really happening down here in the Gulf.

Why is everyone relying on facebook???  Take some initiative and set up your own site that you control.  Then you could post what you want and delete comments against you or your beliefs of advertisers.....   Oh wait ..isn't that what facebook did......   quite a dilemma.   FreedomsPhoenix is a good example of  a web site.  I promote it to persons numerous times a month.  The crew there wants to get a message out and posts it.  Why rely on someone else to carry your water.

Just another example of why horrible Facebook must go. Immature geek Mark Zuckerberg is a wannabe Bill Gates with designs on a monopoly in social networking, which would result in a new Dark Ages like Gates did with operating systems. His whats-in-it-for-me practices trampling personal and privacy rights to position himself for riches no matter whom he hurts are despicable, and are indicative of much worse to come, and he must be stopped. If you could go back to the early 1980s and buy Microsoft's competitors' operating systems, wouldn't you? The only way to stop Zuckerberg is to boycott Facebook by deleting your account after telling your social network to do ditto, in hopes that a saner, safer, more democratic alternative will arise.

As of early this morning (June 29th), Facebook restored the original "Boycott BP" to Lee Perkins and it's many fans:
Mr. Perkins disabled 14 year old daughter still has not had her page restored though.
