    How would you do that if you didn't live around them? For my part, its been a fun getting to know people after decades of not seeing them, its really strange how nostalgic it feels to see people who you knew from the time they were six to sixteen, when they are now in their forties. A lot of the people I knew were pretty close to places I visited in the last decade or so, I wish I had known earlier so I could have visited them.

    Frauds and stuff are the reason why Facebook sucks. You can never be to sure of what someone is saying is true or false. For example, for all you know I could be Jesus Christ or God. Prehaps you are Fidel Castro for all I know ( I am joking ). Again, everything have a good side and a bad side. It is just sometimes one overshadows the other. Technically this is an information forum + social website.

    I wouldnt suggest anyone totally ignore Facebook, theres nothing to stop an imposter who knows a little about you and a few photos to set up an account as you, pretend to be you, and sully your good name.

    Yeah, ruin your reputation and maybe even get you arrested.

    I tried facebook but I've never been much for sharing anything online, even though a lot of people I know are there it just really doesn't interest me in the least.

    Facebook is very cool. I check it many times a day (even at work) and use it to organise events.

    Just never add anyone you don't know in real life.

    Last night's episode was pretty funny. I was particularly amused at the people getting derezzed whenever they lost at yahtzee

    I don't agree that facebook sucks. it's actually useful assuming you take to time to configure it properly.

    I got rid of Disgracebook a month ago. This where I discovered that the people I USED to respect were actually the stupidest laziest dumbest people I ever met(and didn't know it). Without fail... Every time I logged in, I saw something I wish I had never seen. "oh my refrigerator is so dirty, how will it ever get cleaned?" DING...(idea)... Get your lazy fat rear off of Facebook and go clean it! If you're a teen, or a bored to tears housewife it's a great thing. For a grown man with lots of responsibilities, this was the dumbest waste of time I've seen in many years.

    I agree. New series has been good so far.

    I used to be on facebook. Going to uni makes it pretty hard not to join, but like most people I got really fed up really fast so I uploaded a v. graphic picture of a bumhole as my profile picture and got myself perma-banned, none of this rubbish deactivating but not deleting rubbish, I got erased from facebook.

    Yeah, or some decisions about format were made by a committee.

    One web site I bought something from recently annoyed me. It had a box where you entered your credit card details, that was at least 19 characters long, so I entered the 16 digit credit card number, with spaces between the sets of four numbers, only to get an error message pop up 'Please enter your credit card number without spaces'. WTF? Why have a box big enough to enter spaces, if you aren't supposed to have spaces, why not limit it to just the 16 spaces? And if they know you have put spaces in there, it's a snip to trim them out of the string.

    Another stupid committee decision is ATMs. Several different ones I use ask what you want, and I always select 'Cash, no receipt', and then a screen comes up 'would you like a receipt with that?'. I ALREADY SAID NO YOU !%(*HOLES!
