@Matt # 14: You surely are jesting. So it’s the olds’ fault that retard tweens who can’t spell vomit obscene bullshit on FB? Oh, and a word of advice about your atrocious mixed metaphors: Stick to one idea per sentence. On the other hand, I suppose I should be grateful that you’ve at least HEARD of Bob Dylan..
Depends on the family!I have family members in their 60s and 70s on FB (mom, aunts, uncles, father-in-law) who log in regularly. Of course, I’m middle-aged, so it doesn’t cause a scandal if I’m profane in my status updates, which I have been occasionally. Actually, now that I think of it, I have quite a few young cousins, and nieces/nephews who don’t get grief about posting whatever they want.
I’m an ‘older person’ and have several teenagers on my friends list. Most of what they post is stupid garbage, in my opinion, but I just ignore it and have even put some of them on ‘hide’ so I don’t have to see their absurd updates and crappy spelling.
Don’t judge all oldies the same way – we’re not all fuddy-duddies and Facebook is not only for young people. In fact, women in the age group 45+ form the biggest group of new FB users.
Aunt Kath should know what territory she’s getting into and keep her opinion to herself.
@ Matt – yes, but remember that the old roads are often the most scenic
@Jax – I do the same thing w/the high-schoolers on my list. I used to be a middle school counselor and several of my former students are on my list. Their status updates were so inane/appalling/badly-spelled that it was depressing, so I just hide them. I don’t consider myself a fuddy-duddy at all, but tH15 q1nd 0v 5h1t g3ts 0n my n3rv35.
Oh please, he’s probably the same age you are. Stop sucking up to people older than you when you’re just a young idiot like the rest of us. Emphasis on the idiot. Please find somewhere else to post, I hate reading your crap.
@ironicbark # 22: Why hello, copy-kitty-cat. Ad-hommies = the mark of a truly subtle mind. I’d go on and pulverize you with my wit, but I’m too bored to summon the effort. You and your generation bore me. Boring. Boring. Boring.
its about time that someone makes an app to test how much of a genuine fucktard someone is. if they fail, their account is closed, and their IP address barred. it won’t be fool-proof, but anything to rid the site of retards like jordyn is only a good thing.
Ahhh, yes, nothing quite says maturity like arguing with people ten years younger than you online. Oh if only our generation had the wit and wisdom of Bob Dylan to show us the proper way to chastise anonymous people on a forum revolving around an application most often used by college kids. But, you don’t have to deign to answer to me. I’m sure AIDS ain’t curin’ itself!
Noone. And I mean NOONE pointed out the glaring remark made by Aunt Kathleen!!
She says “that’s just a vulgar thing to say on such a public form”.
She only took offence to the fact that he said it openly in front of his friends. If it was in the form a private message then Aunt Kathleen would be getting it OONNNN. She could have said “that’s a vulgar thing to say, and that too on a public forum”.
Clearly, Aunt Kathleen needed some TLC which Jordyn failed to gauge. I know. It’s sick. But I didn’t say it. Just pointing out what Aunt Kathleen stated explicitly!
Jordyn should complain to his mother before she tels on him!
