Lots of heat is being put on Facebook over Holocaust denial, ranging from blogs to CNN to pissed off moms who still can’t post pictures of their breasts on their Facebook pages. Facebook is standing firm in their defense of the deniers.
Meanwhile, MySpace is just hoping no one looks their way. In an email to MySpace forum moderators today, MySpace asked moderators to “keep an eye out for anti-semitism and derogatory comments.” Based on the text of the email, some of which has been redacted, it looks like moderators are expected to remove this content promptly and even perhaps ban offending users.
Here’s the email:
This is a hot topic right now. Keep an eye out for anti-semitism and derogatory comments.
If you ban a user for this, please leave the ban info here.
Please include links of deleted posts as well.
We’ve reached out to MySpace for comment on their official policy on Holocaust denial.
