How can a breastfeeding ad with a cigarette as a nipple get deleted off facebook, but these other photos remain?

I just got blocked from facebook twice in less than 24 hours…you can see the two offending photos here: https://unlatched.wordpress.com/2012/09/13/a-collection-of-all-photos-that-facebook-removes-from-unlatched/

The second photo to get me blocked was this ad about breastfeeding and smoking:

but how does it differ from the following photos:

Their nipples are only covered up by little dots done on something like MS Paint.  The nipple in the above photo has a cigarette covering the nipple.  I reported them of course, but Facebook says they can stay.

I also reported these photos and they were deemed ok to remain on Facebook:

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking the time and actual effort to
    create a great article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot
    and never seem to get anything done.
