pasketti: From TFA:

Authorities have been involved other cases where Potter's daughter, Jenelle Potter, believed she had been slighted by someone.

Now that her dad's in jail, I wonder what she'll do the next time she gets all butthurt about something?


Really! You are thirty years old and need Daddy to defend you when you think you have been "slighted"? Sounds to me like the wrong people were shot. Now she is going to have to stand on her own two feet. How sad.

Smiths: it's made it easier but people don't get what they're putting up there isn't private.


Yeah, I do wish there was more privacy, and that the pictures you uploaded didn't become property of the site.

I don't put information out there without knowing what I type or post may become public knowledge. And while pictures that seem innocent enough could theoretically bite me in the ass down the line with some stalker type, I don't see the harm in it. Some people do put way too much of themselves out there though. So I know what you mean.

This happened pretty close to where I live (college hippie town in the mountains), and we all sort of assumed it was meth-related since it was "over the line" in Mountain City.
This is somehow more disturbing because it's so bizarre. And because, despite both being named Billie/Billy, the victims seem fairly normal and just stuck in a bad situation with this crazy woman targeting them.

Liese: A lot of people are drooling morons who have no idea how to operate a pocket calculator let alone run a computer. It doesn't mean that you have to look down on them because, unlike you, they need to find stupid excuses not to socialize with their friends and family whilst pretending they do.


FIFTY.

And you're right. It doesn't. I also don't look down on them, incidentally... champ.

For one thing I'd spend an awful LOT of time looking down that I could spend more profitably.

why hasn't someone written a 'best of facebook killings and crime' blog yet?

or have they?

CarnySaur: 32oz High Life: I just came in here to say that I don't have a Facebook account.

I set up a Facebook account just so I could delete it.


Hmm, that sounds kinda fun. I've never had one, but I might do that just for entertainment.

sid244: Proud


and all he wanted was a way to scam girls out of their phone numbers.

Smiths: meh... it's inflated an already spiraling out of control sense of self-importance, but now it's tagged with a real name.


So... because some people are attention whores... (and some dumbasses use their real names) there's no legitimate use for FB. Gotcha.

Smiths: and all someone who knows you needs to do is post "Bob Johnson is 5'3" and lives in this town at this address and is interested in cars" and suddenly you're getting targeted ads... and you didn't even post anything yourself.


Oh. You're a f*cking idiot. I see.

majority do. majority always defines, hence why "stereotypes" exist.

urban.derelict: Oh. You're a f*cking idiot. I see.


buh? do you not get that's it's just data mining for anything about anyone. You don't even have to have a facebook account to receive crap from them. Someone just mentions you or puts your e-mail into their "search for people", next thing you know Facebook has that mail in a DB and you're getting e-mail.

or i'm a f*cking idiot and when this all happened to me it was just my own idiocy and not the fact I set up mail accounts specifically for junk that people used to search for me and then i was getting FB mails.

yeah, i guess i'm dumb and those mails never existed.

and a pseudonym. don't forget that.

it's more of a "discussion" forum in this way. when real identities are attached and all the other information is there, it's a different level of complaining.

see: how many people are fired from their jobs for posting from pseudonyms on online forums in their off-time vs people posting using real info on facebook

You find a lot more "real posting" incidents than the "uses the online nickname" (and typically the "uses the online nickname" findings are only because the dumbass who got caught put his real name in his profile)

Women holding infants probably shouldn't be carrying.

Thats right. You need two hands to hold a baby. So the infant should be the one to carry the gun. It's the most reasonable way to go about that.


Couldn't find a pic of Kuato holding a gun from Total Recall. Did I make that up? That was in the movie right?

Assuming I feel the need to, I say the stuff I know that people I know won't like to their faces, not their facebooks. It's worth that much to me.

I don't know you and you're not worth a plane ticket (as well as a nude scan and full-body groping from the TSA) just to tell you you're kinda not very bright.

There are some things the internet is good for when it comes to social microtransaction. This is one of them.

We must destroy Facebook now, for the good of humanity. We must 'pull the plug', while we still can.

I have no problem saying things to people face to face either. I just think it's funny that people are in here saying "LAWL people posting their drama on facebook are teh loozers!" when they do nothing but post dramatic posts and opinions on here.

Why bother when you can just say it to 'em via Facebook, though, eh?

Fair enough, I suppose. Though I'd still have to agree with Smithy that having your real name attached to it adds a whole new dimension to just how stupid that might be.

And oddly enough, Mark Zuckerberg seems to agree, only he and his ilk seem to think that people will realize this difference and it will somehow magically stop them from being giant douchenozzles to one another. Reality tends to bear out something different. In a toss-up between human stupidity and the threat of repercussions from your star performance as a giant raging twat, guess what tends to win out, overwhelmingly?

I'm going to have to say the people who have the discretion not to get caught rate as marginally more intelligent from my point of view.

Someone took a photo of the Facebook homepage, added a date and location, and this newspaper had to buy it from Getty Images and credit the photographer? Is there some reason they can't just pull out their phone and take the photo themselves?

More importantly, why would they take a photo of a computer monitor instead of just taking a screenshot?


Because then they can do that stupid skewed, blurred-in-the-foreground "action from the front lines" angle.

yarp.
it just about how it displayed. we spout opinions here in a more secure fashion because, well, it's nice to vent without insane repercussions or the whole "oh god will it come back to me?" aspect

i still don't post my employer on fark or really any insane details. ooh, i drink a lot, program in greasemonkey, watch hockey, and have a cat who just had kittens. There's Smiths on Fark.

Now I can't sign up under a real pseudonym on Facebook because they get angry if you have a nickname and not a real account.

Then these people link their FB accounts to all forms of webpages and forums and news sites' comments areas. Or they just register there with their real names.

These are the same people who biatch about privacy on the internet and how "it's no one's business if i post pictures of me drinking! why didn't i get that job! PRIVACY!!!"

Hell, I even have alternate pseudonyms (not on FARK) for different forums that I just sign up for to be able to view a response to a post, search the forum, or download an attachment.

Remember the hoopla with Google began indexing Fark threads? People were freaking out.

If someone can associate my real name to my online handles, then they've invested some good time in me.

but it's like car theft... if your car is locked and your neighbor's isn't.. it's easier to just get the open one.
If I post with a pseudonym and upload things with that but other people applying for the job are all over the internet, it's easier for the employer to find crap to compare against. "Well, we didn't find info on Smiths, but the bar is set at the beer pong playing guy who wants jews to burn.... so I think he has a good starting point"

and fyi: it's nice you have a picture and interests in your profile... i don't see a city or real name though. why you hiding behind the nickname?

need a hometown for Facebook.

irony.

I tend to proceed with the premise that my life isn't anywhere near interesting enough for people to invest that time dredging it up. I'm not that important, honestly. Every once in a while I lean out my window and smile for a satellite picture.

As for advertisers' interests in me (and of course people in general- which is, honestly, mostly why Facebook exists), they can piss off. I'm not friending Ruby Tuesdays. I do go there often, that doesn't make us "friends".

jmr61: Why in the world would you ever put "personal and private" information on the web? That's plain dumb.


Think of how much dumber the average American is, compared to you.

Now, consider that 50 percent of all Americans are even dumber.

Best service online BTW:

Spamgourmet.com

Use it constantly, always cool to track down precisely who sold your mail address.

Also: protip I learned about addresses on websites or anywhere:
use the address line 2 or company area to put an acronym or something about the place you're signing up for. Like

Bob j
24 main st
Bestbuy
crapville, Iowa


Then if you start getting junkmail you know who sold your info.

Protip: people who use terrible tragedies as flimsy excuses to push for their politics are not very nice people. They also cause people to not consider the merits of their political ideas.

Something to think about.


Don't you agree that if the couple, the baby, and all the people around them carried guns on their person at all times then this wouldn't have happened? Sure, you could say that it could have happened anywhere. That's why everyone should carry a gun everywhere. That's what makes us safe from crimes like this.

The couple was shot to death in their Mountain City home in the far northeast corner of the state. Their 8-month-old baby was found unharmed in Hayworth's arms.

He let the baby live because he knew they didn't have a piano.

Facebook isn't the place for airing your dirty laundry or for calling someone out. Pick up the phone or go see someone if you have a problem. Even then it's not worth resorting to physical violence.
To reiterate my point: Goddamit people, it's farking Facebook for Christ's sake.

Jenelle Potter sounds like she'd get along well with that crazy woman who was torturing the kid with Huntington's disease -- I don't remember her name, but her campaign began after the kid's grandmother didn't respond to a text quickly enough. This woman (and her father) sound like birds of a similar feather. Too bad they can't all be in the same cell together.

So I joined Google + because I saw more nerds there. Like the old days of the internet. I blame ease of use with FB. There are so many people who need to be medicated that use it. I just had a huge delete feast. Then last night I tell someone who has MS she can join my OPEN MS Group about Myelin repair. And she starts in like she is interviewing for a position. I am like It's OPEN JUST JOIN.. WAIT ya know what--if you have to question if your a right fit for a group. Don't use the internet.
So back over to Google + . With nerds,artist,and way to many freaking pagans.

People talking about and actually getting upset about Facebook in real life is the reason I deleted my account months ago. It's just the internet, nothing more.
 
2012-02-09 10:04:41 PM
I keep 1 Facebook account with my real name just so potential employers have something innocuous to stumble upon... Its almost completely blank.
 
2012-02-10 12:20:32 AM

thespindrifter: I deleted mine... for a whopping six months. In that time I had discovered a slew of people that I really liked who I could only seem to keep in contact with via Fb alone; many of them stopped checking their emails, and few if any seem to know how to write with pen on paper anymore. So I made an alias and 'friended' the really important people, and that was that.

I'm not sure how to get a wife off of Fb; mine uses hers for business networking, and likes the exposure. She's also very social (like most women), so that doesn't help either. I *did* manage to stay away from LinkedIn though-- that place was just plain useless.


LinkedIn: For letting the whole work know when you're fired.

Unequivocally the most awkward exchange I have ever seen on Facebook was between a 24 year old guy, his recently turned 13-14 year old girlfriend, and his family. They had issues with him having a child as a girlfriend, and the girl and the boyfriend were arguing back and forth. I had 3/4 a mind to inform the police about it. Yes, I do live in the South. I have to admit some of the stuff I see is pretty entertaining in an incredibly uncomfortable sort of way.
