Banned from FB! Now where do I go?

Recommended Posts

Apparently the algorithms at FB have got my number down pat.  No sooner than I get OUT of FB jail, I post something mildly humorous and (mostly) true and BAM!  FB Busted!  Last time 72 hours.  This time a WEEK!  Guess that reduces my silicon footprint to....wait....no way....SA only?  ouch!

Social media no longer deals with humorous or (mostly) true.

Outrage and crybaby is the only accepted behaviour. So maybe it is just time to move on.

Left wastebook years ago and definitely the right move. 

My social media is limited to minimal postings here.

Read books. Talk to real people. Breathe. Come back to life.

FB is a has-been and has been so for the last couple of years, except people still living in the FB bubble didn't notice.

I lasted the first 18 months after it launched.  From what I have heard it is way more intrusive now than the intrusion that made me fire it.

Facebook is destroying democracy.

I still have a FB account because of the Robert Perry Boat Designer Fan club.  Bob posts a lot and it's interesting, he has fans everywhere who posts pics of their boats, stuff like that.  Otherwise it could be called waste book.  I really and honestly don't give a shit about where and what you are having for dinner.

1000+ posts here...  the roaches skittering abut this place should come as no surprise to you.

Look at this as a good thing.  Get off FB for a while.  You may like it.  Liberating.

Hang out with us roaches around here a bit more.  SA is the final frontier of wit, tolerance, knowledge and camaraderie.

I struggle to type that without a purple font.  :rolleyes:

Have one, but haven't posted in years. Once in a while I check to see what our daughters in Charleston are up to, and I do get text, or email messages when one has posted something, but still rarely go there.  Like someone said above, it's helping to really fuck up a fair Democratic election, with all the bots and such baiting those on the far left and right with misinformation.

Never had one either.  Seemingly I’m not missing much of anything.  Same with Twitter.

FB in general and the comments on news stories in specific, are looking more like PA every day (but with real names, some of them family members).

That, and the pics & information of themselves or friends some people put up in public view.

Some would call it "Stalkbook".

I was touched, inappropriately, when that shit show just began. I asked some guy at work what it was, he built me an account. That shit lasted a few days. My total "social media" profile consists of this place and a motorcycle forum.

Would you like us to go on a field trip to show you some support?

We haven't done one of those in a while.  Stupid covid lockdown and all.  Boo.

WTF did Meli do on wooden boat?

Sure, she's ignorant, opinionated and unable to spell but come on - wooden boat has higher standards than she can meet? I don't believe it. She's basically a pretty decent person.

I suspect it was a joke

IIRC Meli had a Mirror dinghy when she first started posting and did in fact talk a little about boats, fixing hers up, and sailing it. That's been left behind now. It's all social NTTAWWT

Must admit I've never looked at Wooden Boat. As a steel boat owner/builder I'd be banned on principle, I expect.

Hopefully off sailing tomorrow, the weather guessers claim it'll be a reasonable day. We shall see.

Shirly this is a mistake... she works at a library, right?

Is she dating @Snaggletooth?

Nope, even when she uses spellcheck, she still fucks up continually. Kind of funny really when she uses a correctly spelt word that's wrong in context because she can't tell the difference and spell-check can't help.

Anyway, I was more interested in how someone got banned from wooden boat. They sound like a right bunch of wankers.
