facebook Announcement: Pen Names Verboten!!


I interrupt my usual blog postings for this announcment.
In the words of Mark Twain: "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated".

For those of you who have friended me on facebook under my nom deplum "Dromedary Hump," and have been unable to access my facebook page since Thursday, my apologies. Facebook suspended my account on Thursday afternoon. It seems they require a legal name, not a professional name. This after having my DH name specifically approved by a facebook rep some five months ago.

I have provided them with my legal name-- Bart Centre--and they will be reinstating the account hopefully within the next 24 hours. Dromedary Hump will be added to my account as an alternate hidden name which would pop up if searched. Hopefully, all of my friends will be retained with the new account name.

In responding to them and giving them my name I asked if "Mark Twain," the pen name of Samuel Clemens, would also be rejected. My guess is their response will be something like "Mark WHO?" Oh well, I knew Mark Twain, and I'm no Mark Twain. ;)

Thanks to those of you who have emailed me with your concerns. I'd hate not to be able to converse with you on a daily basis. I've gone through fb withdrawal over the past 24 hrs.

Regards,
Hump

Good news Hump. Godlessbastard got his FB account closed due to his Godlessbastard banner. I immediately posted his banner on my own page to see what happened, which was nothing. I guess it's a random chance thing of suffers from the FB idio... Sorry team.

book is one of the worst application/web sites that exist.

book = Facebook

I have to tell ya. When Hump's account poofed on Everybody Draw Mohammed Day, I couldn't help but to make a connection.

I still think it's possible that there's more to the situation than simply Hump's pen name. 5 months with no problems then poof? Hump was kind enough to send me the email traffic and the gal he's been corresponding with is changing rules, in my opinion. The FB rep who OK'd DH as a screen name should be the person to answer. They change things all the time, but they should give folks a heads-up before deleting accounts. Also, a grandfather clause would be nice. In those aspects as well as some privacy issues, I agree with NEBob.

Damn! Just like that, vaporized.
Apparently you're faith in FaceBook was not strong enough!

zarton said...

Kinda makes you wonder if they would also delete Joseph Ratzinger with his new name or if they would have deleted Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu if she would have used her more famous pseudonym. Michael Lee Aday I could understand... OK, I'll give you that one... it's Meatlof.

At first I assumed someone with an axe to grind with me, who knows fb's rules, reported my page.
Then I figured, it's just part of their normal clean up and spot check review.
Still not up yet, it's the weekend. Hopefully by monday.

Hump, I wondered what happened. I wanted to share with you an author on booktv that was bashing secularists stating that since we don't believe that god we believe only in ourselves and couldn't possible have concerns for others. Her name is Melanie Phillips and the book is The World Turned Upside Down. As far as FB, I use a pseudonym for one of you accts. I use it so see what my page looks like to others. Is FB going to require birth certificates? I think you ticked off some tolerant religious person. Hope you are back on soon.

Motorhead said...

DM, you have issued death threats in the past and are a nuisance. I'm challenging you to a perfectly legal, good old-fashioned bout of fisticuffs. Hell, I'll let you have your god be your corner-man! I'll arrange everything. Venue, security, popcorn sales... I gotcha covered. ;) If you accept, we'll exchange contact info and get this ball rollin'. That's right DM, I'll PAY to get you in the squared circle. Sounds like fun to me! LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!! :)

NewEnglandBob said...

Motorhead, DM is just a sniveling coward. He is a mentally diseased, juvenile gutter worm. He would never meet you or even come out in public.

Dromedary Hump said...

MrsWren,
Thanks for your concern. I shall be back to fb, just waiting for them to reinstate my acct under my name as they promised. Probably by Monday.

Yes, that silly argument of theists has been roundly dismissed and debunked by ao many secular authors it's become just a nonsensical and easily falsifiable hackneyed platitude. Not even worth a reply. Afterall, whats the point? Do they think (think..Hmmm)that such a dismissal will convert thinking people? Or will it suddenly render non-belief in superrnaturalism obsolete? silly theists. They are just scared their archaic ignorance is slipping further into oblivion. And they should be.

Motor / NE Bob,
Please don't react to DM's idiocy.
He posts the exact same messages to all the blogs he visits daily after he gets home from the restaurant he works in at around 3 a.m. Sometimes he has specific comments and accidently mass posts them, resulting in his own deletions so as not to appear like the imbecile he is :)

Lets not feed the troll, please. Just delete the emails you get from him. Thanks.

Rachelle said...

How did the folks at Facebook know that wasn't your legal name, Hump?? There are lots of "strange" names that are legal names. LOL!

Pardon me if you had already explained it. :)

Dromedary Hump said...

I don't know rachel. I guess the strangeness factor was high enough to send up a red flag .

Angel said...

*whimpers*

Stop it, DM. Your boobquakes are terrifying!! That's IT! I repent! I cast off this demon called Atheism (heck, and Gnosticism too since it's all the same hooey to him) and acknowledge your intellectual superiority!

Now if I could just learn to talk in the same psycho-babble as you then maybe I can spread the word. Any help on that? What meds you takin', man? I wanna feel the high! I wanna feel the Lord! Gimme manna from heaven and take me away! Oh wait, that's half of a Calgon commercial. Shit. Well, whatever. At least I got the first part right. Right? That's what counts.

Angel said...

*slaps self on behalf of Hump*

I know I know I know. Don't play with the stupid psycho. He's just too damn easy.

The whole 'boobquake' thing has tickled my funny bone. I don't get it. I really don't. What, do fundamentalists thing mammary glands are sins? I ain't hacking mine off just to please him. Sorry. My husband likes them too much.

I guess I just have to "Say No" to God on that request. He wants my boobs then he's going to have to hack off my husband's testicles first.
