Facebook may now ban Saeed Valadbaygi

Much of the news about what is happening in Iran has been sourced through a small minority of sources. Even the US State Department has been relying on Twitter reports to find out what is going on.

Given that, it is quite amazing that Saeed Valadbaygi is now facing a ban on Facebook.

These are the messages that they have sent him.
