    Typing too fast on facebook???? 13th Oct 16 at 6:57 AM
    Got up an went on facebook. Entered a quick little comment comp - or tried to - only to be told I was blocked for using the feature too fast. On my FIRST comment of the day. Filled in the little thingy that you get if you want to appeal. 10 minutes later it seemed to have cleared, only for me to get it again on the next comment I tried. This time I just ignored it and tried again but just typed slowly and my comment was accepted. Can FB actually tell how fast we type? Am I being silly there lol?

    Lately it feels like every blooming site is conspiring to slow down my comping pah.

    And I just tried another comment and got blocked again. It really doesn't like me this morning.

    I've just commented on about ten posts without a problem, six of those were comps. I never enter 'like and share' comps - just wondering if that might be causing others' problems?

    I am still unable to post comments... however I Just noticed it will allow me to comment on a "sponsered" advert / status that the company has paid to appear in news feeds! (even If I don't like the page) which is very strange. I never had a warning prior to this ban it Just happened.

    So basically pointless I reported a few and got a simple thanks for submitting and then a short phrase saying no further action is required Really fed up with it my friend entered about 10 competitions today and has now got a ban it seems ridiculous!

    That is how I was reporting it, with no success. Then last night I sent a report via the arrow on the top right hand side, down to report a problem, something isn't working, selected Messages or Chat (and later Pages), and put the report in, and I seemed to finally be cleared from the ban after a few minutes

    I'm a bit wary and dubious how long this will last though, but for now it's seems back to normal

    Yes mine is also fixed. I wonder if it was a genuine ban or just a glitch?

    Sorry to bring up an old post but anyone having trouble today?

    I have done about 10 and suddenly got a ban with no warning with regards to sharing this time not commenting. Wondered if another glitch?

    A few people have reported this so don't worry guessing its a glitch again. Might hold of posting on FB,
