Supplementary notes

According to Facebook, "We don't tolerate bullying and harassment on Facebook because we want the members of our community to feel safe and respected. In many instances, we need a person to report this behavior to us before we can identify or remove it. Other times, we're able to detect this behavior without a user reporting it."
