When trying to share informational content on Facebook, I find that it's getting blocked. I get the following error message:

The content you're trying to share includes a link that our security systems detected to be unsafe: http://example.com/motorcycle-guides. Please remove this link to continue.

Does anyone know why this is occurring, and how can I fix it (if possible)?

You'll need to contact Facebook via the "Report a problem" link on the logout menu (right side drop down menu).

Facebook flags URLs rather liberally in an attempt to curb spam. As a result, many legitimate links can get blocked rather easily. There's not much you can do short of trying to get the URL whitelisted.
