Oh, folks, I am so sad and overcome by the wrong facts, muddy thinking, assumptions, false optimism and general....Government Supporters [the worst words I know] on FB. I went to check on a sale, looked at my own timeline, and literally felt like I'd been slugged in the stomach.
Paramoia [and its more popular cousin, paraNoia] is only crazy if they're not after you, and after us they are.
If they'd only leave us alone.......

    Old dino has always shunned such things as FB and Twitter. All I have to do is watch Watter's World on the O'Reilly Factor to realize I am surrounded by idiots. How y'all think Obummer got elected twice? Hm?
    I like it in the Gulch, though.
    The following is my alternate post or what I first thought to write here--
    An allosaur does not want to show his face on FB. That would defeat the whole idea of being an ambush predator.

    One reason I cancelled my Twitter account...

    Yep... FB is often a sewage line for anyone who wants to spew their garbage into the blogoverse.

    I played on for a year or two against the likes of "Jan4Gore" and "Verotchka" who, amongst others, had Warmite juice flowing through their veins instead of logic or hemoglobin. Many religious Believers in groups at Linked In were much the same.

    But that seems to be the way 'the rest of them' "think" nowadays, so they are common watering holes for conspiracy theorists and loons.

    Now, if I can get my OCD games off my PC, I'll write a few books on several subjects... just to piss off nearly everyone.

    Well wind,
    What we are looking at is the cumulative effect of liberal education, exponentially increased by 40 years of liberal policies.
    If you want a better example of this, try this factoid: Taylor Swift Fans made 8 seconds of White Noise a number one hit today. It was actually a recording flub, but all those people paid 1.99 for it!

    I did 'The Big Logout" back in February. However, I've since realized that it is futile and pointless. Let me 'splain Lucy... Within a few weeks, the account had been restored. Apparently many of the services I use kept certain account relationships alive, and that accessing those accounts caused the FB account to revive. Which is what they said would happen if I chose to logon again.

    I don't delete the data and the account because there are some old items that I'd like to retain. However I don't use the blue finger of death anymore, I just allow them to serve the data I choose to provide.

    Who wins? I dunno. They get a *tiny* bit of tracking information on me, but no advertizing revenue. I get to store data on their servers, while suffering excruciatingly difficult access to it. Decision: DRAW...

    Don't use twitter, never have. Too much crap. FB is pretty much in limbo in my life. Use it to connect to family who still use it. Oh well.

      The majority of the people who make me a combination of crazy and sad on FB ARE my family. My former students can [because they are my former students] think, and often do.
      Those who use twitter are referred to in my universe as twits.

        Your post fits for my family as well. But, its family and we are spread out all over the country, so, its a way of seeing whats going on.
        The twitter post had me LOL. Thanks for that much needed belly laugh.
        Thanks, winterwind.
