Facebook Enacts Most Senseless Censorship Yet

Print comment Post Comments
And you thought banning breastfeeding photos was bad.

This week, the Google+ Precursor slammed its banhammer down on an iconic album cover -- deeming it a violation of Facebook's Terms of Use.

That's understandable. Was it Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland? The Black Crowes' Amorica? That one with John and Yoko?

Nope. It was Nirvana's Nevermind, featuring a three-month-old in the buff -- something new parents see roughly three times a day next to an economy-sized package of diapers. And that's not counting the 30 million people who already own the album.

In commemorating the album's 20th anniversary -- feel old yet? -- the band announced it will be releasing a deluxe reissue and uploaded a photo of the original album to its account. The photo was taken down and the account was sent a notice: "Facebook does not allow photos that attack an individual or group, or that contain nudity, drug use, violence or other violations of the Terms of Use."

So all you moms and dads out there, that life-changing moment when you saw your child for the first time, remember: That memory is completely offensive.
