In response to EnchiladaT's comment:
I read HP because it is tabloid and it keeps me informed about what the average idiot American is interested in
I wasn't thinking about pike only (though he actually took the time to find my HP account!), just curious if people wanted their real life photos accessible, their hometowns, etc,....
*** if you think I am bad here how do you see me behaving on HP, lol.
Enchillada, I have ths same concerns. I used to post on Politico, & enjoyed some of the back & forth. Once the switched to everything going through Facebook, I quit cold turkey. For me, the back & forth we all have here is to a large extent a bit of a game. We often take things way beyond how we would talk in mixed company. We let our hair down, & get down & dirty kicking around thde debates of the day. All too often, we all go way too far with whatever debate ws are engaged in, be they Red Sox or a good socio-political debate.
anyway..... i sure as hell would not want 90% of the hyperbole i engage in to ever end up on Facebook. I wouldn't want to have to defend any of it, as hyperbole, irony, & most out of context comments do not translate well in print.
i would likely quit posting here altogether.
I'm actually shocked that there aren't more folks fired for the stuff they "share" on Facebook. I'd be out.
