Supplementary notes

According to Facebook, "We give people the option to appeal our decisions, except in cases with extreme safety concerns. We restore content that we incorrectly removed or when circumstances change, both when it's appealed and when we identify issues ourselves."

According to the source in Q2 of 2020, "due to a temporary reduction in our review capacity as a result of COVID-19, we could not always offer our users the option to appeal. We still gave people the option to tell us they disagreed with our decision, which helped us review many of these instances and restore content when appropriate."
