Farklee: We should start an official Fark Poll:How many FB accounts do you have (including aliases, pets and etc):I will go first:6
bubo_sibiricus: TsukasaK: Jesus, poison the well much?Then let's go with what just happened in Syria.The government was using FB and Twitter to find out who was circulating information, getting their real names, going to their houses, and shooting them.Anonymity is a right. It is an *important* right.
TsukasaK: Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: You could NOT use the product. That's an option.Absolutely not! It's my god given farking RIGHT to use whatever name I want on a private website, nevermind what I promised I would do./agreed though//don't like the rules of the party, don't join///personal responsibility, what a novel concept!
TsukasaK: 12349876: It's only "fallacious" when you don't know the difference between bad and illegal.Bad? One could make an argument that signing up with a website that basically says "Yeah, you have to use your real name here, is that a problem?" and you respond to that with "No problem, I'll make sure to do that!" would be "Bad". It makes you a farking liar if nothing else.
TsukasaK: Because the USA is exactly like a tinpot dictatorship, and because you have the *right* of anonymity on a private service.
12349876: There's a difference between saying "I think Facebook is bad because you can't be anonymous" and "I think Facebook should be forced to let you use it anonymously" or "I think Facebook should be shut down because you can't use it anonymously" and you were not distinguishing between the two when you made your comment...
stonicus: RoyBatty: Apos: And I want a three way with Bar Refaeli and Erin Heatherton.Both scenarios have the same chances of resounding success.Well, one of the answers is "I don't want to tell you", which sounds to me like Facebook will certainly interpret several of those answers regarding your facebook alt as a "no".This is why my facebook alts have no friends. (Not an explanation for why my real alt has no friends :( )And yes, I got some facebook alts at the same time they started allowing facebook to be used as a general web commenting system.How soon before they send you a message "you've made no friends in several months. We're deleting your account."
Noah_Tall: So most celebrities are going to be banned?
BitwiseShift: Hey FB. The fifty's called long distance from East Germany. This is not a repeat from the thirty's called from the Third Reich.
TsukasaK: BitwiseShift: Hey FB. The fifty's called long distance from East Germany. This is not a repeat from the thirty's called from the Third Reich.Oh look, this tired shiat again.
Amos Quito: What is this Facebook, and why should I care?/Never touched it//Never will///EverEnjoying watching the stock shrinkage
dbaggins: there is a difference between when the state asks you to turn in your fellow citizens hiding something, and when a company asks its users to turn in their friends that are hiding something.
dbaggins: Would you like to coin a different term for this type of behavior ?
Jedekai: Facebook is evil.
Jedekai: Amos Quito: What is this Facebook, and why should I care?/Never touched it//Never will///EverEnjoying watching the stock shrinkageFacebook is evil. We're talking Lex Luthor evil. Irken Armada evil. The-Red-Skull's-Daughter-Sin-During-Her-Period-Evil.

semiotix: /that's "Sexxxxxy" with five Xs//friend me on Facebook!
Hector Remarkable: Next they're going to want to check my anus.
Paelian: So why bother with fake FB profiles anyway? I can only think of a few reasons:1) You're screwing around on a spouse/significant other.2) You're playing Farmville or its equivalent and want nothing else to do with FB.3) It's a throwaway login like a one use email address for media that have FB functionality.4) You're using social media for pranks, stalking, or taunting the police anonymously (probably not the smartest choice you could make).Have I left anything out?
RoyBatty: I am somewhat pissed that Drew hasn't made a FARK version of disqus, or facebook commenting, or openid or any of those identity system things.
Dahnkster: Remember in the old days when we had profiles sorta like Match.com...and you could stalk Farkettes?Big Johnson: [flying in the chopper to the roof] Just like farkin' Saigon, hey, Slick?Little Johnson: [smiling] I was in junior high, dickhead.
Real Women Drink Akvavit: //same with her BFF Britneigh
