Why I'm not posting on Facebook today

Yesterday, I posted on Facebook about Nebraska RIS, a property management company in Lincoln that handles my boyfriend's old apartment. Today I woke up to the following:

While I had tagged Nebraska RIS in my post, nothing in my post violates the Facebook community guidelines. However, someone who commented on my post included the owner's email address for the purposes of spamming her.

I am banned from posting, commenting, liking, or breathing on Facebook for 24 hours. When I tried, I was given a link to appeal the decision. When I tried that, I repeatedly got an error.

So basically, Facebook has allowed itself to be used, by a company with reprehensible business practices, to harass me further after already costing me money. Good job, Facebook!
