Facebook prides itself on being an open forum for the free flow of ideas, no matter how vile they may be. Consider the Holocaust-denier groups that are full of repugnant insults and tons 'o racism
Some people want the groups removed from the Web site, while Facebook's spokesman has said that the company finds the groups offensive, but it wants to "be a place where people can discuss all kinds of ideas, including controversial ones."
Which is all well and good, except that the Internet-savvy can't help but note that Facebook recently banned pictures of breast-feeding mothers
, probably one of the least offensive things anywhere, ever, at all. Is anti-Semitism really less offensive than boobies performing their natural function?
