Cyclophobia on Facebook

32,000 people have signed up to a new car supremacist Facebook site promoting hatred of cyclists. (Apparently it originates in Australia.)

Streetsblog asked Facebook whether this group violates their Terms of Use, particularly sections 6 and 7, under "Safety":

6. You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user.
7. You will not post content that is hateful, threatening, pornographic, or that contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.

Facebook's Simon Axten told us the group has been reviewed and deemed kosher by the company's staff.
