How to Offend Facebook

Todd Starnes points out that offending Facebook is WAY easy. Just post a not-unfamiliar joke:

“Rancher Bundy should’ve told the feds that those were Mexican cows – who came across the border illegally to seek better grazing opportunities. It was an act of love.”

And watch Facebook tell you that you’ve offended the community, so they’ve removed the post for you.

I… *really*… hate Facebook.

Todd, however, is more forgiving:

For the record, Facebook has the right to censor — it’s their company. And while they may censor conservative and Christian postings, Facebook is quite welcoming and affirming to leftwing diatribes against Republicans, religion and the Tea Party. I just wish the folks at Facebook were a bit more tolerant — and diverse.

  1. Y’know, I don’t mean to toot my own horn for prescience or anything – but back in the days of BBS (and later AOL, then Geocities) it became markedly clear that the Internet was going to be a very dangerous place where people willingly give up privacy in return for the illusion of “social” networking; that false sense of “connecting” with someone who’s just text on a screen.

    Y’know, feeling like they’re out being social when the reality is that they’re in a dark room illuminated only by the glow of their monitor screen. Sure, I’ve heard the stories of star-crossed lovers who met online. They’re the same as pen-pals in prison. Whatever. You find what you’re looking for.

    For the same reason, my hatred of Facebook (et al) rivals the unmitigated fury of a thousand suns. Facebook was DESIGNED to be weaponized against the stupid. And folks just sign up for it willingly.
