Facebook finds it hard to deal with criticism ?

I was trying to post a status update in Facebook, referring to youropenbook,  a site which enables search through all public status updates. Another initiative aiming to help people realize the changing state of the privacy.  I was surprised to receive a "This message contains blocked content that has previously been flagged as abusive or spammy. Let us know if you think this is an error" message,
This is the first time I have ever encountered such a message, and I have posted a link or two in my status updates... Is it possible that Facebook is finding it hard to deal with criticism and is using its Anti-spam mechanism for internal censoreship ?!?
