Facebook, in a policy wording gaffe, seems to make targets of its "dangerous individuals" but then recants

Facebook created controversy with a policy change that was clumsily worded and seemed to accept making violent threats against some categories of persons that Facebook itself or other media reports had declared as “dangerous”.  There was some quibbling in the language as to whether this referred to rhetorical threats only.

But Lifestylenews reported that Facebook removed the language seeming to accept vigilantism against some “conservatives” today. 

Laura Loomer and others had written pieces saying that the original language seemed to target them and that Facebook as acting like a totalitarian left-wing government.
