STOP Censoring artistic photos by Michael Stokes and Locking him off his page.

Freedom of expression is freedom to create art, and on Facebook, that should include freedom to not be persecuted by people who signed up to view your page. More over freedom should not be threatened for creating art.

With all the things that actually NEED to be reported on Facebook, beautiful images of the human body, with the 'offensive' parts covered, shouldn't even be on the radar. This article says it perfectly:

A photographer feeling threatened for sharing his work on a page people have to LIKE to see is ridiculous. Facebook giving people who want to abuse the tools offered to report hate crimes, bullying, and other serious matters, the power to freeze an artist's account is sending the wrong message. This should be changed and I think the policies that allow this must be reexamined.

Please sign if you agree.
