For impersonating himself

 

Steve Webb, a British MP form the Liberal Democrat party, was banned from the social networking site, Facebook, on Monday.

The site had received complaints that he was in fact impersonating a member of Parliament and chose to suspend his account. According to Reuters, Webb is a keen promoter of online communications and he uses the Web to stay in touch with his constituents.

After some help form his Facebook friends the site realized it had made an embarrassing mistake and reactivated his profile.

"You realize the power these organizations really have," said the banned MP, "It's actually hard for a genuine person to prove they exist."
