Facebook removes elbows [PHOTO/VIDEO] thought to be nipples

Facebook removes elbows [PHOTO/VIDEO] thought to be nipples, Facebook's breast police just might be more efficient and ruthless than that of many dictatorships.

One can imagine them positioned in all parts of the world, trained on anatomical textbooks and porno flicks. 
Here a breast, there a breast, everywhere they are abreast of imagery that Facebook deems offensive.

The Web-zine 'Theories of the Deep Understanding of Things' uploaded an innocent — but seemingly risqué — photo of a woman sitting in a bathtub with her elbow resting on the edge (warning: it looks inappropriate) as a test of Facebook censors.

Lo and behold, the social network quickly takes the photo down for violating their terms of service.

Obviously FB moderators could not tell an elbow from a dangerous, filthy, uncanny and violent female nipple.

Facebook's policy is based on subjective appearance rather than objective content, and the service w ill not hesitate to remove photographs that appear to violate its TOS.

The picture test was in reaction to protests over Facebook's policy of removing pictures of mothers breastfeeding their children, reports
