"Not Recommendable" by Facebook


Artwork by J R R Tolkien

I am a tremendous fan of all the works of J R R Tolkien.  I love the movies, and I love the new Amazon Prime Rings of Power streaming show.

So I decided, with some encouragement from like-minded friends, to create a Facebook Page to celebrate all things Tolkien.  His own words, his own art, my words, my photography, and such topics that I feel to be relavant to Tolkien.  My page is known as 'Marigold Brandyfoot'

Today, Facebook publishes on my page the following statement:

Your Page is not recommendable
Content on your Page is preventing it from being suggested to people. Let's help you be recommendable again.

What???  Two days ago, I did a post regarding the banning of books, asking when the books of Tolkien might find themselved banned from middle and high school libraries.  This is the only thing I can think of that would have lead to the above chastisment from Facebook.  Interestingly, a sense of censorship here.

If you would like to journey with me in Middle Earth, and celebrate its beauty, and grieve at its hurts, you can follow my page here:


Here is a sample post from June 4:

“I am (obviously) much in love with plants and above all trees, and always have been; and I find human maltreatment of them as hard to bear as some find ill-treatment of animals.” JRR Tolkien

Please join me, in Middle Earth.  Thank you.  signed....Marigold Brandyfoot.
