Sorry for the frustration in the title.
We run an online store selling bitcoin and crypto related merchandise.
I tried to advertise it on Facebook (please understand I am a complete newbie to FB ads). Uploaded the balance but ever since Facebook imposed a ban on "crypto ads" I am unable to get my money of them. I'm only getting generic replies which are so shameful that I don't even want to post them (basically got 10 replies "we don't support your business model".
I am selling T-Shirts and Cups for fucks sake. If their algorithms are dumb enough to realize it, they should at least provide some communication back to us. I've been trying for few weeks now, and finally decided I had enough. I want to get my money back and don't want to use Facebook/Instagram anymore.
Not only am I unable to get refund/reply but I'm also not able to spend the money of it, because they automatically lock anything crypto. https://imgur.com/a/9n4Dw
Are there any business owners with similar issues? Any Facebook experts that can help me with the issue?
TLDR: Had a Facebook AD account with a balance, Facebook banned crypto ads, closed my account, my money is locked, can't get them to refund it. Want to close my account and get my money back, need some help from people familiar with FB Advertising.
The level of vitriol in this subreddit has gotten as bad as r/btc. Almost the entire front page is now filled with fud, conspiracy theories, and ad-hominem attacks.
I get that people are not super thrilled about segwit2x. I am not a huge fan of it either, but I am also not interested in seeing a chain split. The level of recourse has devolved to the point it can't even be called a debate anymore, it is just children throwing shit at eachother; and I emphasise the word children.
It has gotten to the point where we are now doing more damage to the ecosystem than if we just let segwit2x go forward. The 2x proposal is probably not optimal but it is also not going to lead directly to $ 20,000 nodes run by 3 people, so stop pretending it does. That's the kind of bullshit reasoning that passes for discussion in r/btc. We are supposed to be better than that.
Stop it, just fucking stop.
