Every now and then, PraguePig.com comes across a Czech-language comment on Facebook so offensive, I feel the need to report it.
And more often than not, Facebook will reject my complaint, usually along the lines of, “We’ve looked over the comment, and although it doesn’t go against any of our specific Community Standards, we understand that it may still be offensive to you and others…”
