facebook: Stop silencing people for making the world aware of hate speech

A prominent Icelandic feminist has been temporarily blocked from posting content on Facebook, warning her that she must stop violating the community standards of Facebook. The material considered "abusive" is a screenshot of a personal death threat directed at her from a Facebook user who does not approve of her political views. 

This policy opens a gateway for political harassment on behalf of those who want to silence their opponents and must be reconsidered.
