Discussion on: Rejected by Facebook

Umm... what??? That makes everything seem even odder than it already was. I have no freakin clue how any company filter - automated, or human-managed - could possibly categorize my site as porn?!?! I mean... it's perfectly understandable that some hiring manager may not like the content on my resume site, but there's no logical way they could possibly view it as porn?!?!

I bought the domain only a few months ago and I have no real reason to believe that anyone at any time would've previously housed porn under that domain. Quite frankly, I don't think that anyone's ever had that domain before.

This still feels like a stretch, even as I type it, but I'll throw it out there anyway: You don't possibly think that I was rejected because of some nonsensical filter in the FB network proxy??? I mean... if the FB proxy is blocking access to my resume site, that means that those who eliminated me either A. never even viewed my resume site (and thus never viewed my credentials), or B. made a conscious effort to subvert the filter, perhaps by pulling up the site on their personal mobile devices.

That is so out-of-left-field bizarre to me that I'm not even entirely certain how to process it. Hmm...

Sorry, man - but I gotta tell you that this response is, IMHO, an epic fail. You fabricated something as "evidence" of why I should take a different approach. But your entire argument is (wait for it...) fabricated.
