Facebook's 3rd spamming allegation against our Church and State website since 6 June 2017. This time one of the two articles targeted has been liked/shared by Facebook users over 70,000 times (WITH UPDATE - DAY 79 22/11/2017)

Re: Internet cuts since 26 May 2017

From my newer blog post's Update 22 November (8.16am):

"And it's not just Facebook blocks, blocks on public access to our Church and State website and the daily targeting to fluctuating degrees of category pages throughout the site that Declan and I are dealing with these days. We have also been dealing with Internet cuts since 26 May. See my blog post of 21 June, Internet cuts: We pay £65 per month for BT Infinity but feel we are in a race against time to stay online (WITH UPDATE 22/11/2017 RE: 170th Internet cut since 26 May 2017)."

22 November (8.06am): 170 internet cuts since 26 May 2017.* We had to suspend work on our Church and State website on 15 June after 4 internet cuts in one night. With an all-time record breaking 7 cuts in one day by 4pm on 29 August; 14 cuts in September that included on 5 September our latest 1/2 hour removal from the internet plus the almost total shutdown of our BT TV service; no cuts since 15 November (as of 22 November at 8.06am).

* 12 out of the first 18 internet cuts were within the first four days of a BT engineer's visit on 12 June. It is a matter of written record that this engineer "securely fitted a brand new master socket to another location on the same wall. He also carried out a comprehensive line test and could not find a problem with [our] line".

The War on Free Expression

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) still have not recorded my complaint about serious misconduct by HMRC staff involving criminal or near criminal behaviour; see my previous blog post of 30 August, Independent Police Complaints Commission: My complaint to the IPCC about the alleged non-referral of my complaint against HM Revenue and Customs for serious misconduct (WITH UPDATE 5/9/2017). I not only complained about HMRC Pay As You Earn and Self Assessment updating my address on 11 July without my permission (and the detrimental effect this may have on Declan and myself in terms of the possible suspension of our Housing Benefit), but also their subsequent closure of my Self Assessment account based upon fabricated hearsay evidence which no independent judiciary would accept. We were also dealing with Facebook a couple of weeks ago; see my blog post of 20 August, Facebook's 22nd block against our Church and State website since 1 December 2015 (WITH UPDATE - DAY 3 21/8/2017). Now Facebook are treating as spam two articles from our Church and State website - the 3rd incidence of this sort since 6 June 2017. This is my report to Facebook tonight:

For the attention of Mark Zuckerberg, Chairman, Chief Executive and Co-Founder of Facebook

5 September 2017

Dear Facebook,

I posted the following reply to your messages in my Support Inbox (please find both messages attached):

Please note that these two links you are treating as spam are to articles on our Church and State website:

Contraception and the Catholic Church

Christian fundamentalists are driving our country into the Dark Ages

The second article above has been liked/shared by Facebook users over 70,000 times. Neither article is spam.

On 5 April I reported that the page listing all the groups I belong to was not working. With this rectified, I reported on 10 April that I couldn't schedule posts on my page. Then I reported on 12 April that my scheduled posts were not posting. On 6 June I reported that there was no fault with an excerpt from a book by Dr Pascal Bruckner, one of France's leading public intellectuals (a 16-day block). On 24 July I reported that there was no fault with an excerpt from a book by Prof Paul Cliteur, one of the Netherlands' leading public intellectuals (an 18-day block).

On 10 August, Facebook replied: "We reviewed your [Prof Cliteur] post again and found it does follow our Community Standards. The post is being restored to Facebook. Thanks for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience."

Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

24 July 2017: Facebook remove a book excerpt from one of the Netherlands' leading public intellectuals (WITH UPDATE - DAY 18 10/8/2017)

DAY 79 UPDATE 22 November (8.21am): Still no withdrawal by Facebook of their 3rd spamming allegation against our Church and State website since 6 June 2017 (a 79-day block to date). We have absolutely no idea for how long this unprecedented block in terms of length will continue or what's next from Facebook; see my newer blog post of 29 October, Facebook's 24th block against our Church and State website since 1 December 2015 (WITH UPDATE 22/11/2017). We have also heard from the Independent Police Complaints Commission concerning my appeal of 23 September against what became an investigation by HMRC into my complaint about serious misconduct by HMRC staff; see my newer blog post of 27 October, Home Department: Complaint to the Home Secretary against the Independent Police Complaints Commission. My appeal against the HM Revenue and Customs investigation of serious misconduct is simply being ignored (WITH UPDATE 28/10/2017). As explained in that blog post's update, it's not inconceivable that our case against HMRC will see the inside of a courtroom in the New Year.
