Steve, your penultimate statement, "Perhaps this says more about the American sensitivity to nudity and their desensitisation towards violence" is right on the money, I believe. I'm currently writing a piece on the farcical attitudes of nudity / sex / violence exhibited by Facebook and its Community Standards, based on my own recent experiences with them. Given that Meta Platforms is an American company, the execution of their standards is not surprising, but totally absurd.

As your piece illustrates, they appear to have no appreciation of what is harmful and what is innocuous.

As always, a well written and researched piece. Much appreciated!
