In several instances people who are not close friends, nor people I see often, but with whom I am friends on Facebook, are saying things about the recent rioting that I find utterly objectionable and bigoted. I feel tempted to put them in their place, but then can’t be bothered because stupid people never listen anyway. Unfriend? there are genuine friends in common.
From self-righteous in reply to post #997 mob rules.
Yes, I’d noticed this too. It is rather tempting to pass a warning shot over their bows, but I worry that such barbed sarcasm will either be ignored or ‘not got’, or just fuel the flames of more objectionable and bigoted remarks.There are so many times a day one can press unlike before tedium and the real RSS (Repetitive Strain Syndrome) sets in.
These may be Walls to post upon people, but they do have ears. Or rather eyes and networks in this case. But the metaphor stands.
I’ve ‘other friends of friends’ who have also started to embed pictures and video. Just like those that rascally paper the Daily Mail has got hold of. These kinds of people yoff are only after one thing. So either put in an order to Footlocker, or be done with it. Should this type of content appear, remember that once they’ve tagged and sold all their new gear on eBay, you’ll never hear from them again.The Met are on Facebook too your perps!
