Earlier this week, Citibank closed the business account of social networking site for gay men, fabulis. When fabulis called to demand an explanation, they were told that their account had been suspended due to "objectionable content" on their blog.
The first problem with this is that banks should not be acting like moral policy for their clients. The second problem with this is that there is no content on fabulis' blog to find objectionable - except their focus on a gay userbase.
Our companies have too much power and responsibility to allow something like this to go ignored. We demand that Citibank not only restore fabulis' account, but that they provide a full explanation for their "objectionable content" policy and an explanation for why fabulis' blog was deemed objectionable.
