Facebook Pre-screening offensive comments?

Censorship 1

bhagwad writes "Apparently Robert Scoble tried to post a long comment on Facebook only to have a message pop up saying "This comment seems irrelevant or inappropriate and can't be posted. To avoid having your comments blocked, please make sure they contribute to the post in a positive way". If true, this is huge. For one the self moderating system of comments has always been the rule so far. And with countries like India rooting for the pre screening of content and comments, is Facebook thinking of caving into these demands?"
