Facebook Admits It Blocked Links to Wikileaks DNC Emails

Have you ever noticed that every single time Facebook does something like this, they always blame it on an algorithm or something beyond their control? I would have more respect for them if they just came out and said "whoops, you caught me, my bad" and left it at that.

Facebook admitted it briefly blocked links to Wikileaks files containing internal Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails. The block seems to be the result of another algorithm accident that may have incorrectly determined the links to be malicious or spam. Facebook Chief Security Officer says the company has fixed the error, after receiving heavy criticism from WikiLeaks.
