    Have they given a reason for it? I.e. is it because of the nature of the group - or is it because of racist comments (no doubt justified by people using "free speech"!)?

    I'm glad to see it gone, but if it was simply because of its aim, then I imagine there will be some sort of backlash because of it (not that most people really care).

    Whey, so much for free speech.

    But then Facebook do tend to be quite authoritarian and close down most risqué groups, so I'm surprised it took them this long.

    Well it appears then that multiple pages have been made, because I just typed "everybody" into the search bar on fb and the first thing that came up was "everybody draw Mohammed day" and it is still accessible.

    You do realise if people make such offensive websites, it won't take long before it either gets hacked or taken down by a money hugging host...
