As of a few minutes ago, the problem has been fixed (total time of blocked access: just over 24 hours). A FB communications person just emailed me:
I'm so sorry for the inconvenience caused, there was a temporary misconfiguration in our photo review systems which caused a very small subset of users to be incorrectly enrolled in one of our checkpoints. There was no issue with your original photo, we have a combination of automated and human-review systems dedicated to keeping people safe, and a bug caused one of these systems to incorrectly enroll a small number of users into checkpoints.
We have since remedied the issue, and remediated all affected accounts. Please let me know if you or others are still experiencing any difficulties.
Really if Republicans just want to be "not Democrats," they should go this way. I don't want to be a Democrat any more either, it's just that Republicans suck even harder. If they start differentiating themselves by sucking less than Democrats, I'd gladly join them. This would be a great start. You have an opportunity, Republicans! You will also have to drop the fringe religious extremism and woman-hating, but I bet you can do it. Just be less evil than Democrats, rather than more.
There's no balance. Either you have freedom of speech or you don't. Either you trust in the marketplace of ideas or you don't have one. Mark Twain once said that "A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." But that was before the Internet. Now both can travel all the way around the world without needing shoes, and do so instantly. The medium is not the message.
The BitTorrent protocol is now the fastest way to download items from the Archive, because the BitTorrent client downloads simultaneously from two different Archive servers located in two different datacenters, as well as from other people who have downloaded these torrents already. The distributed nature of BitTorrent swarms and their ability to retrieve torrents from local peers may be of particular value to patrons with slower access to the Archive.
