Point the first:
I don’t want to know what happens on facebook. If I wanted to know what happens on facebook, I would go on facebook. I don’t want to know what happens on twitter, instagram, or any of the other brain-dead socio-pathic-media spittoons out there.
You are posting on Blue Mass Group, a discussion web, the purpose of which, and the rules thereby, is to promote actual and original discussion.
And I CERTAINLY don’t see how any post that is merely a screen shot of a conversation that happened someplace else, and contains no commentary besides the title doesn’t fall afoul of the rules and the spirit of BMG.
WHAT? THE? FUCK?
This is not that and it enrages me that people are trying to dumb BMG down to the level of facebook. Don’t. Do. That.
I don’t give a dry french fart for either facebook or twitter yet now have to strive to prevent the rot from extending into BMG… WTF, all over again.
If you want to splat brain-dead, faux pithy, lowest-common-denominator sniping and simpleminded memes, there are places to do that and you’re welcome to them. Don’t do that here.
Point the second:
I sure hope the converse isn’t happening: that conversations here don’t get splatted, out of context and without nuance, up against some pathetic social-moronic wall of self-abuse. I would hope that would not happen… and if it did happen I would hope the editors would take action.
