Facebook’s moderation algorithm now seems to be deleting airsoft pages as suspected, but for my part I don’t think UKAPU should campaign against it unless our members think otherwise. Facebook is a private website and they can control it however they want, in line with their personal politics. The owners aren’t compelled to listen to the public.

We web users have over relied on Facebook and as a result have lost some of the freedom of speech that the web was supposed to provide. But there’s plenty of good airsoft sales forums and they are better moderated to prevent illegal sales.

It’s a shame to see our legitimate, positive activity marginalised yet again though, and I hope you will all continue to talk about airsoft on this site so that we can keep introducing new players.
