I recently posted in here with a link to a group I set up on Facebook for women from the area I live. I then received a message from Endometriosis UK to say it had been deleted because it was of a promotional nature and went against the guidelines. They explained that they can't be responsible for external content. I understand that, and wouldn't expect them to take responsibility for external content. But does that mean we can't post links to anything, to share with each other news articles on endometriosis or research or blogs? I have responded to the email to ask why my post was deleted, as I can't find anything in the guidelines about posting links. Unless I'm looking in the wrong place. But no one has responded. I also asked how it is best for people living in the area I do to communicate, as we have no local support group. There are a few other women who have joined and we are looking to arrange a meet up in January and it seems a shame that I can't let others know through here. I also don't understand why anyone would have reported my post to Endometriosis UK, when I was just trying to help and create somewhere to communicate with others who live near me. Has anyone else had their post deleted, and can anyone direct me to the guidelines where it states we aren't allowed to post links to external content?
