KNOX Council's Facebook page has never seen as much activity as it did last week.
Hundreds of people took to the social networking site to vent their anger by either writing a comment about the Rowville speed humps or liking other comments.
In contrast, there were just 13 contacts logged via phone, email or in person.
One Facebook post regarding the new speed humps received almost 200 likes before mysteriously disappearing last Wednesday The council said the post was not deleted — it appeared to be a Facebook glitch — and made sure users could see a link to that thread.
The council's chief executive officer, Graeme Emonson, said "we definitely don't delete threads". Only individual comments that were offensive, like language, were deleted.
