It’s Facebook Versus the Elbow Boob–Guess Who Won?

Facebook sets up a rigid bunch of content filters that automatically takes down content that are found to violate their long list of image rules and guidelines. However, it looks like they need to work on their filters some more because they've just been trolled by the folks from the Theories of The Deep Understanding of Things.

You see, the group purposefully posted the image you see above with the sole purpose of testing Facebook's image filters. There's zero percent boobage revealed in the photo. In fact, all it shows is a pretty blonde bathing with her elbows sticking out of the tub.

Facebook disagreed and ruled that the elbow was a woman's boob, so down, down, down the photo went. They obviously didn't say that outright, but what they did say was that the photo violated their Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.

The page admins posted the takedown and commented:

FB moderators can't tell an elbow from a dangerous, filthy, uncanny and violent female breast. No questions were asked and the post is down. Imagine our surprise.

Ah, Facebook and their wicked ways.
