It seems that my face book account has been closed. They won’t tell me why. However, on their “Ask” page it does list some things. But nothing to indicate as to why my account was closed.
Now, I’ve not stalked anyone.
I’ve not threatened anyone.
I have however, been threatened for my lack of religious “beliefs.”
I just wonder if those individuals had their accounts closed as well?
Now did I post thing like I post on here?
I had one picture that was removed some time ago.
Not a problem.
Had I asked a lot of people recently to become friends?
Yes I had.
But I for the most part only invited those with the atheist “A” on their picture.
I did send them a question asking as to “why” but I’m not betting the ranch on it.

My letter to them:

I have been informed by my account on your site has been disabled.
I have received threats from some members and have actually filed a complaint against one who makes it a hobby to find those, like myself, who are an atheist.
I have also been verbally attacked by others in the past.
I have also have some trouble recently with someone trying to hack into my e-mail account here on yahoo.
I may have also had someone try to hack into my account on Facebook.
I have NOT received ANY notification of my being in ANY VIOLATION of your company's policy.
I think I may have had a photo removed but that, if it did happen, was quite some time ago.
Now I have recently attempted to add "Friends" who are also atheists like myself.
I have also joined some groups that are atheist based as well. Some are located outside the US.
As for those individuals I have attempt to add, the mast majority of them have the atheist "A" on their photo or something similar.
I do not go out looking on your site for trouble.
I do not go out looking for religious believers of any kind to attack or try to change them to my way of thinking.
But I along with other atheists have had people attacks us and in some cases tell us to "die" and what have you.
Is that an accepted action Facebook allows for those who follow a religion? To attack others who do not?
Could you also tell me just how many other Atheists have had their accounts closed for similar things?

Or could you inform me of who has been trying to hack into my account?
Sincerely, Ima

Are you sure you are still on Facebook's site when it tells you your account had been closed? I've seen browser redirects that take you to another page that kind of looks like facebook and tells you your account has been closed. Usually its an effort to try and steal your account information. I would go on Facebook and double check the URL or try logging into Facebook on another computer and see what happens. It just seems odd that Facebook never notified you that anything was wrong. If you can get into Facebook on another computer then change your password immediately

I'm there as Ima Athiest
I've also logged on under another name and that account and name is not coming up.
Interesting I said in my letter to them, I've been threatened by people on facebook because I'm there as an atheist.
And I've report people to them because of it.
Anyway, I'm going to create another ID for it.
We'll see what happens.
I had a couple hundred contacts on there.
Had Ima a Antheist on there.....
so we'll see what happens.
But thanks for the information....I'll try that too.

I've had my facebook randomly deleted with no given reason too, but that was before I started posting atheistic messages and became active in various atheist groups, so I don't think that was the reason. I've heard that facebook sometimes deletes accounts with fake names or names that sound fake cause they're afraid they might not be real people, so maybe thats why yours was deleted. Also I think they might delete it if they recieve a complaint from someone, so maybe if you tried to friend someone who doesn't know you they go worried and sent a complaint.

Dan is right, check your computer for Malware. I am on facebook and have tons of atheism pictures published along with atheism links and notes and I have been involved in some really heated debates without recourse. Worst case scenario is someone got your password and started spamming from your page and facebook shut you down for that reason.

THE SWINE!!!!!!!
I shall NOT be silenced....

I think Facebook gets grumpy about people who don't use their real names when creating their account. I tried to make one for Atheist Pride but they rejected it at every different spelling because it was, 'inappropriate'. Nicknames are allowed, just not fake first / last names. HOWEVER - they should have notified you beforehand to change your first and last name. Have you tried to recreate the FB account using the same email?

Here is an update from Facebook
Enjoy lol

The Facebook Team"

At this time, we cannot verify the ownership of the account under this address. Please reply to this email with a scanned image of a government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver's license) in order to confirm your ownership of the account. Please black out any personal information that is not needed to verify your identity (e.g., social security number). Rest assured that we will permanently delete your ID from our servers once we have used it to verify the authenticity of your account.

Please keep in mind that fake accounts are a violation of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. Facebook requires users to provide their real first and last names. Impersonating anyone or anything is prohibited.

In addition to your photo ID, please include all of our previous correspondence in your response so that we can refer to your original email.

Sure kiddies....I'm gonna make a copy of the driver's liscense, which is against the law down here in this state...and send you a copy. Come on....
What a cheezy way out....
But that's ok.
I've decided to create another.
I'll let you all know what it is...
Comment by Rick on April 3, 2010 at 12:23am
Thought I'd post a copy of my reply.
Let me know what you think.
I'll let you all know what they reply.
Here's the reply I sent.

Not a problem
First though, I'll need a copy of your government ID, with a photo, and your name, with the information you want not to be seen blackened out.
That way I'll know I'm dealing with a real person instead of a computer.
You just can't be too sure in this day and age.
