Well, Now Facebook has increased it's efforts to weed out accounts with
This just goes to show how the morons that end up running these places have preverted the internet into some glorified neighborhood where everyone is
your friend. In a perfect world with rainbows and unicorns and Obama ... yeah, speak your mind, everyone wants to hear your opinion and to take a line
from Demolition Man "Be Well, John Spartan" ; man, that's one huge delusion!
The same as it's delusional to think everyone is evil and hell bent on destroying another and exposing every deepest, darkest secret we maintain.
My earlier post is an agreement and a confirmation to the general and somewhat ill-informed public about the potential
dangers of Social
Just as people need to wake up about 'Conspiracies' (I like the term Agenda instead of conspiracy) people need to understand that having access to
online resources requires more then just knowing what to click on.
There isn't really much technical information that the general public should need to learn to use online resources. The main thing that all people
should learn immediately before using online resources is caution. Take time to read Privacy Policies before you click accept
Here's an except from Facebook...

(except to the extent has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it).
To use? how? Why anyway they see fit, of course.
I have a Facebook page and I use an alias. If they think I need to be accountable for my actions online... LOL Only my bank (and a few online
retailers) know my personal info... and that's as it should be.
Accountability? Accountability for what? I would dearly love to hear their reasoning behind why a personal social network requires accountability...
If you want that in a professional online community, go to LinkedIn.
I'm sure that you'll see corporate CEO's and jobseekers networking with other lampshade-wearing beer-chugging drunks with riotously funny
When Human Resources departments at companies all across America have a policy to check MySpace and Facebook and now Twitter for any accounts that you
may have listed under your REAL name; and then use that in addition to any real qualifications to place you in a job... This is a sad day.
Facebook is a personal social website. Who the hell cares what nickname you use... What if I'm from the middle east and my given name is Habib Admin?
The name Admin is soooooo forbidden in almost every facet of online accounts...
Except, of course, to the administrator. (and one ISP that had no foresight and allowed me to acquire that login name on their service, very long
But that's what happens when the ignorant transplants from another industry takes over something that they don't understand; like internet. All they
see is dollar signs and they ignore good practices. That means aliases have always been used and should be in the future. Use aliases on everything!
Except where it may constitute fraud. It's just a wise thing to do.
It's a wise and sound practice to keep all of your personal information off of the net. Make it as hard as possible for the 'bad guys' to obtain
Who knows or cares why 'they' are interested in someone... the fact is if something catches their eye, they can start finding out everything about
someone that carelessly posts personal information all over the net.
No computer system is secure. Facebook certainly isn't immune from being hacked. Why make it easy on them?
Yeah, I saw that picture that says ... "LOL, I'm behind 7 proxies!"
Why is it even funny? If you are really behind 7 proxies... there's a good chance at least one of them doesn't keep logs and that breaks the chain
back to your desktop computer in the volcano lair.
While I'm ranting about keeping personal information private... How about Obama making all of his private documents public. What has he got to hide?
Where's his thesis? Where's his accomplishments as Head of Law School or whatever it was. Where's his real birth certificate? Not the computer
I'd love to be able to read some of his work (not his bio-books) from university... Apparently he needs lawyers to keep it all under wraps because,
of course, he has a lot to hide? Or nothing?
