There is a Facebook page dedicated to the School I went to in the 70's. Lots of reminiscing, memories, old photos, that kind of thing. Generally it is a very pleasant group page, with majority positive comments. Obviously some of the threads are 'Do you remember Mr Bloggs, the history teacher?' followed by peoples memories of that teacher. Obviously, as in any school, there are positive memories and negative memories. One such thread, about a Maths teacher, who (IMO) was excellent. He inspired me any way, along with many others. The comments are 70/30 positive/negative with comments about him giving 'naughty' pupils the slipper (we are talking the 60s/70s). Anyway, today an ex pupil wrote this: "I remember him as a bully!.. and if he didn’t like you , you were bullied!! That bas**** made my life a misery until I told ***** ****** (Deputy) about it, and, bless him, he got involved. A couple of months later, Mr T***** left, to F****N RAPTIOUROUS APPLAUSE!!!! I don’t think it was just me, because he was a c*** to lots of pupils... and unfortunately I was one of them. I’ve heard he’s dead... .. I hope it was painful...." Regardless of this persons experience, I don't think this is acceptable as the teacher has since died and is unable to do anything about it. I reported it to Facebook as hate speech, citing foul language and hateful comments about his death. Facebooks response was to say that it doesn't contravene any of their policies. I assumed there was a misunderstanding, so asked again for this to be considered. They stood by there actions, suggested I 'hide' the comment and block this eejit from my feeds. Is it me, or do other people find this unacceptable (although maybe not surprising). By the way, I'm not a fan of Facebook anyway and use it only to keep up with close family as well as join groups connected to my hobbies.
