Facebook policy

Consider this a preemptive strike.

I think Facebook is the biggest waste of electronic ether since MySpace. Frankly, I am flat-out embarrassed to have my name listed on Facebook. This social networking claptrap should be beneath any adult that considers themselves to be from the northern quadrant of the Bell Curve.

I am a member of Facebook for two reasons. Firstly, I can keep up on the latest from my three children and five grandchildren. Secondly, I keep my name on there in the fast-diminishing hopes of meeting my father one day.

Anyway, here’s my point…

I do not intend to “friend” every candidate for elected office from every far-flung corner of this bucolic county. In fact, I seriously doubt that I will accept any friend requests coming from those who seek to run the world. There’s no need to take it personally, nor is there any concerted attempt on my part to shun any or all candidates.

My email address is prominently listed on this site. If you, as a candidate, want to strike up a dialogue or gain some exposure on this site, that’s the vehicle you ought to drive.

That’s all I got, my Facebook policy.

Bye

face book using is a waste, but playing video games is an intellectual pursuit?

Uh, did anyone say that playing a CD-Rom game was an intellectual pursuit?

So you're saying I can't count on you to water my crops? Or join my mafia? Or...waitaminute, when did Facebook turn into MySpace?
