Do it.
 
2020-09-23 5:06:15 AM  
And Facebook might have just told the world how to destroy it.
 
2020-09-23 5:52:56 AM  
Oh no, the rage dealer destroying your lives is going to cut you off? What ever will you do?

It would take about 10 minutes for a local entity to fill that void

Facebook vs government = child vs parents.  Child - I quit. Parents, no problem we'll just take all your stuff and give it away. Child, wait what... not fair... pouts.  Few hours later the child will give in knowing it will loose more if if she\he doesn't follow the rules.

Yeah, I can't imagine there's anything of value that fb provides to European governments. I'm sure they'll be glad to get rid of that headache

Oh darn what a shame, that would be nice to see them dump FB like a bad habit. FB needs them more than they need FB.

Yes, get rid of that toxic shiathole that poisons the electorate and gives the russians direct access to the vulnerable brains of idiots

Oh no, they'll have a lot fewer white supremacist right wing movements to deal with! Oh no!

You probably shouldn't threaten people with something that they want.
 
2020-09-23 9:35:31 AM  
Go for it. The less Facebook the better the world.

Didn't they throw this tantrum in 2016/2017 when GDPR was implemented?

Please. Quit all the countries.

Don't worry, thanks to Brexit, Facebook can continue to ruin the discourse of the UK.

Do people still stress out over GDPR?

I know our IT blames anything that they 'upgrade' to be less useful on the GDPR boogeyman.

Not really. People came up with whatever plan a few years back and just seem to be cruising with that. I just remember FB making a big stink and acting like they were going to pull out of the market. If only....

Facebook doesn't t quite understand the precedent set by president Lysol with the tik tok deal.  And none of this would have happened, well not so soon anyway, if president Lysol wasn't the horse zuckerburg decided to bet on.

You think we could convince them to move to Sealand?  Then that country would have something of value.
 
2020-09-23 11:23:05 AM  
Remember Europe doesn't have regularly scheduled elections.
If the Zuckerborg's addicts make enough noise, that set of pols lose power.

Europe is a continent not a nation, and since you can't get that distinction correct, your statement will likely be bullshiat.

And, behold, it is.

a flying monkey made me do it: You think we could convince them to move to Sealand?  Then that country would have something of value.


A negative value is still a value, so you are technically correct.

/The weight of all that derp would sink that poor platform in a day or two.

But how will white supremacists and other right-wing assholes find each other?
