List Rules Vote up the photos that you can't believe were blocked or taken down from Facebook

Facebook isn't just a destination anymore. Facebook is a journey. People live their entire lives through Facebook. Posting about their own lives, following the lives of others via their Facebook newsfeed. Largely this is made possible by people sharing photos of their life experiences, but sometimes those photos get banned. These are some of those photos banned from Facebook. With some of these pictures it is obvious why they were taken down. With others it's an example of an algorithm gone wrong (mistaking one body part for another, for example). Others, well... others just defy reason. Be sure to vote up the photos you can't believe were taken down from Facebook.
