Hi all

I have been recommend this forum by a friend and I hope that someone  
may be able to help out.

I have a major issue with Facebook. One of my friends (FB profile:  
Baba Rampuri) sites is blocked on FB, so whenever someone posts a link  
to this domain "rampuri.com", a window pops up and says that the  
domain is blocked, due to spammy or offensive content. I assure you  
there is nothing that comes even close to that.
None of our profile or fan pages have been blocked, it's only the  
domain URL - so far.
I and about ten other people have tried contacting FB to get them to  
lift the ban, but have heard NOTHING from "them". It seems, to me, to  
be a fully automated computing process, with no trace of humans around.

The reason the URL is blocked is most likely because of a power  
struggle going on in the American yogabusiness, and we are confronting  
and challenging some of the big players (the Ashtanga yoga cult and  
the Hare Krishnas). We have been "attacked" on other levels as well.

Does anyone have an idea how to get in contact with a human being  
working in FB or does anyone know someone at FB, preferably in the  
US ??!!!???
Facebook should also have a "whitelist" of sites reviewed and approved  
by them, so that eventhough someone should report the "whitelisted"  
domain as spam, nothing will happen, because it is already given  
Marc's stamp of approval. How to get on that list ??!!!??

Thanks, any ideas are very appreciated !!
