I finally joined facebook at my wife's recommendation. It's fun right.........no not really. Frick, I found out you couold look up old long lost friends from years gone by and not a single one of those moreons has added me as a friend. Great, now all my insecurities from high school are welling up again......what a bunch of JERKS! :cryin:

I have the opposite problem. All these people who I didn't really know or associate with are all wanting to be my friends. Or people who legitimately are friends keep recommending these folks I hardly knew. I don't want to clog up my flow with a bunch of info from people I don't actually know or have anything in common with, but I hate to seem rude.

My HS friends seem to forget that I moved to town in 10th grade, and just didn't get to know everybody they had known since kindergarten.

It also seems like a lot of them are still caught up in the novelty of it, and are friending everyone whose name they recognize. This isn't myspace, people. It's not a competition to see who has the most friends.

Anybody that cares about who friends them on facebook needs to re-examine things in their life.

I hate the FB. I have an old account I let everyone friend me on then I deactivated it and opened a new one with jus the people I like lol Problem solved. A couple have discovered my dirty little secret and I just opted to not friend them. Fuggem. You can also make your profile completely unsearchable and unaddable. Explore the Settings tab :thumbsup:

Jup, maybe they dont know you are on FB?? Its a possibility that all of your HS friends have looked for you before you joined and couldn't find you, so they just assume you aren't on it. I would friend a couple of them so they see youre on FB now and ill bet others will start friending you back!

Nope, I'm not either. In fact, I have no interwebs at home so all my Lounging is done from work. Last thing I need is someother web site killing my productivity.:p

off to re-examine things my life....

/ FB is odd. I ignored 5 women who I knew in HS... I was wtf, you barely gave me the time a day 25yrs ago and now you're interested in what I've been up too.... So I banned 'em

No. I hope to remain the last one and solidify my title as hypocritical Luddite.

I figure, I already waste more time than I wish to on the interwebs. If people want to know what I'm up to, I'm easy enough to find.

All of us who aren't on Facebook should get together and form a club.

//You need to be less angry.

Maybe we could set up some kind of website where we could commisurate with one another and let eachother know what we were up to.

Excellent idea. I wonder if there is some existing website we could use where we could do something like that. We don't need to reinvent the wheel.
