Mentalpatient87: gilgigamesh: because she's sick of her very religious, Tea Party in-laws constantly chiding her on her "wall"

T.rex: I'm not one of those 'i don't use Facebook' types, but i will say that it seems to have lost a lost of its luster in recent months.    Nobody seems to post updates anymore.

HAHA, i've never been on the facebook so i can just say that this revelation to this gentleman may seem like he's st. paul on the road to damascus, but its just coals to newcastle for me.

as for the "workers" of facebook, i'm glad i don't participate in a website where the users generate the lion's share of the content whilst the ringleaders just sit back with their top hats, bar towels, and fancy beverages cracking in the shekels. that's for suckers.

Why I'm quitting facebook: I'm tired of getting invited to parties, knowing when my friends have life changing events, and being just generally in touch. By gum if I want to put my foot in my mouth and ask Tom how Lisa is doing the day after she dumped him, I should be able to without all them facebook SPOILERS.  Further, I love those "I don't have a TV" and "I don't read fiction" people so much I want to join them in my haughty assitude, and this is the path that will get me there.
