succeeded in some topics. In a lot of others, however, the editing was
refused automatically "because this page has been abused many times" and you
have to go through an administrative process to request unblocking.
Wikipedia has several volunteers to cope with this nighmare, but if FB
doesn't have enough documenters, where do we find the people that will
ensure pages aren't changed by obscure minds with a lot of spare time,
spammers, XXX advertising, phishing, hatred messages and the like?
