Is anyone else being blocked by Facebook censors?

Facebook note: Apologies in advance for any typos. I'm a terrible typist, and I have dyslexia, so I make many mistakes. I do not think in parallel structure, I'm a messy writer, i hone and refine my posts. (It doesn't come easy.) And yes, it's important to ply one's craft to the best of one's ability—even on Facebook. Because, in my world, typos are often the only bits of writing that survive...some sort of weird Murphy's law at work.

It takes me, upon average, three tries for each comment or post, to get everything right. So far, today, I've been blocked by Facebook from correcting my posts ten times. Belay that, we're now up to 2 dozen times.

The problem is, that I have to make a decision each time to either save my revised post or complain to Facebook.

Despite the fact that Facebook is once again blocking my every amended post I have found a copy and paste workaround. Cumbersome.

Wondering if anyone else is being blocked by Facebook censor.

My note to them:

"HEY! I have the right to correct, edit, amend my posts withougt you arbitrarily deciding thst I'm a spammer, As you can see, I'm a terrible typist, and I have dyslexia, so I make a lot of mistakes. It takes me upon average, about three tries for each comment to get everything corrected. QUIT BLOCKING ME!!!"  (Note the typos...)

What is significant, is not that I make typos, etc., but that you, Facebook are being a censor nanny, and your algorithms are broken, if they continue to construe my correcting of my typos on my comments as a form of spam.

"It looks like you were misusing this feature by going too fast. You’ve been blocked from using it."

I can't help it if I'm a fast thinker.
