On my News Feed I posted:
Facebook is where you lie to your friends...
Twitter is where you tell the truth to strangers!
and immediately got a message I was blocked from posting for 1 week.

Whoa... musta triggered a filter.

The post did include a link to my twitterfeed but I see that being done a lot. Guess FB is tightening up their spinster in preparation(H) for the mid terms.

Which news feed, where ?

I'm guessing you meant sphincter..But..given facebook's policy on bare skin, maybe "tightening up their spinster" is also appropriate.. :)
Plus ..I now have a mental image ( with acknowledgements to Gerald Scarfe's influence ) of "tightening up their spinster" which I think I might draw tomorrow..seems fitting for facebook ;)

My mobile spellchecker likes to change spellings, or even change words, when I hit the Submit button. It comes with the keyboard I have installed and doesn't have any settings.

Mine does this change words just when I hit submit / send too :)..took me a while to realise..
Occasionally..like in your above post, the change is amusing, and a good alternative..
I suspect that the phones silently giggle about it when on charge later.. :)
