Dear Readers,

The FaceBook ban on peoples not using their birth given, legal names has caught up with me.

Two months ago an acquaintance of mine warned me about FB blocking people from using their service if they didn’t use their ‘real’/legal name.  Being Black Coffee Poet on FB (both as a personal account and an FB page) has me violating FBs new legal name policy.

If I want to continue using my account I have to scan some legal ID with my real name.  To that I say, “Hell NO!”.

As of yesterday I have been blocked.  No access to my personal account or my page.

Legally, in the FB sense of being ‘legal’ (their rules), I am supposed to be allowed to run a page as the one I have: the Black Coffee Poet page.  Pages do not need to be under a ‘real’/legal name.

Being that I’m blocked from both accounts, FB is BREAKING their own rules.

I have no way of contacting FB so I’m no longer on FaceBook having me not be in contact with almost 3000 FB friends.

It’s Twitter time!

I’ve been procrastinating on learning how to use Twitter.  Now is the time.

Add me @BlackCoffeePoet

If you can help with my FaceBook situation, or you can help me learn how to use Twitter, please contact me: click CONTACT.

Thanks for your support!

Peace, Prayers, Poetry,

    Respect Existence or Expect Resistance!

    Hello, I also got blocked from commenting on facebook. This in itself would not have bothered me too much. I have a phone to talk to my friends. What bothers me is a multitude of other blogs use facebook comments as their commenting platform. That means facebook has effectively silenced me on other sites that are not affiliated with them in any way. So please, if any of you own a blog, please remove facebook comments and use the native commenting system in your blogging platform. Thank you for not using it here.


    • Jax,

      Thanks for reading and writing.

      I’m still blocked and it has affected my website readership. I have joined Twitter but it is sooooo different.

      Hoping for the best.

      Peace, Prayers, Poetry,

      Black Coffee Poet
