Yeah, sorry, maybe the above is too much, especially the part about the alleged abuse.

So then, back to Trudeau.

Every topic on JT imaginable can go under facebook groups, I hate Justian Trudeau and believe me, there are a lot more of them!

So if you're frustrated here, with Capital "L" liberals, small "l" liberals or anyone remotely supporting JT, then there is a facebook site waiting for you, with plenty of "friends" in tow!


But I like to discuss Trudeau here, where I’m anonymous, rather than on facebook where I’m not, because if I meet him I’ll want a hug and a selfie for my photos and I wouldn’t want my friends to think I’m a hypocrite. :sunshine: :biggrin:

Nothing is too much for the Evils of Facebook. It's all part of the history of facebook, including incredibly stupid things I had to report on my own family, so don't feel it's too much.

And yes, JT Hate Facebook pages could be run and administrated by many here for all we know.

I am really tired of all the posts on FB and Castanet about the terrible "T's". (Trudeau and Trump)!

Make it go away!

At least on Castanut I can ignore those threads but on FB it gets slammed in your face no matter how many times I click on "I don'y want to see this". I'm ready to unfriend everyone. lol
If I agreed with you then we would both be wrong!

Yes I noticed you've stayed out of the Trump threads, the one I started was merely meant to be all the stuff that happens in the interm, until he is Pres. as opposed to just slamming him. That's why all things posted there works.

Facebook is a wonderous thing, if it's only in your control. I like it for so many reasons. But that's not say it doesn't have a dark side.

They keep threatening to take away my account because the pesky email doens't work for them. Like I don't need facebook emailing me, they have a built in messenger. Use it. Damn it.

I read them for entertainment but shake my head a lot. I try to avoid Politics and Religion because no one wins and it just turns into an argument.

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

There are good things about Facebook, like being able to see photos of place you'd never in a million years go. I travel through my friends and they travel through me and all my photos. Professional site, nothing personal there. And there are lots of sites that take you all over the World when you're in reality stuck at home.

But this is about the "evils" of facebook. Of which I feel there are many.

:spitcoffee: I just did, you're crying and rolling on the floor clutching your favourite great big stuffed unicorn. Tears are streaming down your face, while you ask that important existential question "whhhhyyyyyyyyyyyy........."

I said nothing is too much for the Evils of FB, but what you wanted was for me to what? I'm already dying inside when I see stuff like that and the evils of social media are encouraging as bad and worse. The Slim man killers? Murder, people who encourage suicide, what case was that? I'll find it. Facebook for all it's wonders, is also filled with evil.

I sincerely apologise for being such heinous troll. You are a kind and sensitive person, and I had no business hurting someone like you. Anyone who wants to has every right to put me into the category of evil here. I'm going to step aside now.
