As you may have noticed, Turtleboy Sports Forever was unpublished by Facebook.
No reason was given, and no appeals was offered, which the terms of service claim Facebook will do. We’re flustered obviously, as this is pretty big downer. That page had over 30,000 followers, as did Turtleboy Sports Returns, which was unpublished in earlier this month. Oh, and all of our personal pages are either deactivated or suspended for 30 days. We’ll get Clarence back in 8 days and then he’ll be suspended again.
This obviously has a devastating effect on us financially. But remember – they’re doing this because we’re exposing the truth. They don’t want us to talk. They’ve gotten us blacklisted from Google AdSense, harassed our advertisers relentlessly, blacklisted us from Twitter, taken down 38 Facebook pages, sued us over 10 times, sent libelous fliers to every house in Holden, sent us death threats, and much more. If it were not for the generosity of turtle riders this blog would not exist today. So many of you have stepped up to defend free speech by donating to the Turtle Fund and hitting that PayPal button. I never though I’d see the day where we has to ask for donations, but I also had no idea we were living in a country where people will go to such lengths to silence speech they don’t agree with. We humbly accept and graciously appreciate any and all donations. Or you can buy the anti-censorship t-shirt, or anything else from the Turtleboy store.
I’d love to leave Facebook for good, but the reality is that they have something that makes them more powerful than any business that has ever existed – 2 billion people. In order for the blog to grow we need to reach new people, and Facebook has a monopoly on them. We have no choice but to continue to use their platform. So on that note please follow TBNews to keep up with our posts for now.
Any and all ideas are welcomed if you want to email firstname.lastname@example.org. However, our strength is in numbers. Bristol is drafting a letter that we’re going to email to media members with large followings, who would be sympathetic to our cause, and might help us out. We’ve tried contacting these people before but it’s easy to ignore one person. It’s not easy to ignore thousands. So if you’d like to help us out in that regard, stay tuned for more details about our next course of action.
Thanks for riding the turtle with us as always.
P.S. We’re still going live at 9:30 to talk about this, so make sure you’re subscribing to our YouTube channel.

Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help. Please consider donating by hitting the PayPal button above if you’d like support free speech and what we do in the face of Silicon Valley censorship. Or just buy our award winning book about the dangers of censorship and rise of Turtleboy:
