Welcome to the Shitshow

That’s about the nicest thing I have to say about Facebook. That’s not a joke.

It’s happened again; Prime got a ban from Facebook. This one is three days and the reason why is insane: he told a guy to jump into a chipper shredder. That broke community standards. Seriously.

Bear in mind that women have reported actual death threats but those death threats never broke community standards; the content was never removed nor was the abusive user banned. Yet others were banned for saying that Pizza Hut pizza sucked. Again, this is not a joke.

So I’m taking a Facebook sabbatical. I’ve decided not to go on Facebook for the next three days. Prime can use my account to his heart’s content, but I won’t. For fairly obvious reasons. Zuck doesn’t need my clicks or attention so he won’t be getting either. He doesn’t deserve either one.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
