Facebook reinstate VIZ page

Tuesday 16th February 2016 will go down in history as The Day Facebook Blocked the Viz Comic Facebook Page For a Bit, and everyone will remember where they were on The Day Facebook Blocked the Viz Comic Facebook Page For a Bit. They were online, Tweeting and Facebooking about it. "Facebook blocked the Viz Comic Facebook page for a bit" they said, or words to that effect. At least the ones who weren't posting about fluffy kittens or Kayne West anyway. 

Yes, after several hours that seemed like a lifetime for fans of Viz Comic, Facebook reinstated the Viz Facebook page later the same day. Facebook apologised to Viz, saying it was a "mistake". Hooray for Facebook! Let's give them the benefit of the doubt and assume it was a genuine mistake and not the sort of mistake used as an excuse by a teenager filmed by security cameras shoving a DVD up his jumper or a flasher caught in the headlamps of a police car. 

A victory for common sense and rude cartoons. You can visit the Viz Comic Facebook page at this link. Unless it's been removed again:

Seemed like a bizarre decision in the first place, I haven't read Viz in years but compared to some stuff on Facebook its fairly inoffensive:)
