  1. How much you wanna bet the “founders” are big Obama fans?

  2. You’ve stuck a nerve, there, Claire.
    That’s why I don’t use FB (I have an account for access to other things, but my only post is that I don’t use FB, please email me).

    I appreciate your introvert link. There’s a lot more to it, though.
    I think there’s a difference between being introverted and being comfortable with isolation. In my personal experience, being alone (which I’m almost always, see: signature below) usually means dealing with things outside oneself (book, internet, TV, crafting, driving, etc.). Very seldom do I think about myself. Sometimes, isolation is just a comfort.
    On the other hand, being in a group usually means thinking about oneself while trying to fit in (me, where does me fit in? what do I say? is that person a threat to me?).
    As a kid, I hated those group-learning situations — it was always a social interaction, never a subject-learning one. Mainly, it was just a break, a kind of indoor recess. Put five kids in a group, and each kid gets 1/5 of the brain-exercise time, at most; and what you do learn is corrupted by the stupidity and ignorance of the other four. Of course, the teacher gets a nice rest. Schools don’t teach individuality. They teach collectivism in the name of “socializing.” Sad.
    Also, seems like the only time I do significant introspection is for posting or commenting to this group.

    This article is about quantifying compliance.
    Soon, it will be a measure of something, like IQ was, only horrible.
    Yeah, Claire … can’t wait for the gov’t to get involved.

  3. I **never** use FB. If I did, I’d use a dedicated computer which I used for **nothing** else, and which (take notes, H->) had **nothing** on it that wasn’t relevant to that purpose.

    The last time I checked, accessing FB gets you snoopware on your computer that subsequently reports everything you do back to FB central, regardless of whether you go to FB and/or login or not.

    Aside: no doubt People will try to hide behind the 1st Amendment, but I’ve got to wonder if it isn’t a massive class action / defamation suit waiting to happen.

  4. And of course those messages generate no charges…..

    Claire “Other people’s opinions of me are none of my business.”

    That’s 180deg out of phase with “Care about what…….”

    Other people’s opinions – especially if they’re gummit-folk – can get you in serious trouble. That reached its peak in the old Soviet Russia, where Siberia became a vacation spot for the unenlightened.

    I think Master Lao may have meant that there’s no point trying to mold someone else’s opinion of you. Even there, exceptions abound. (“I see that pretty redhead in the front row. I hope she likes me…..”)
