    so a little while ago, i was looking at my facebook feed deal and i saw a comment from someone i knew in middle/high school. except the last thing i heard about this guy was he was busted for child porn.

    facebook is an evil porthole to the past. i have not only seen people fall victim to the evil but have experienced it myself.

    theres a reason we have a past, because its not meant to be our future.




    oh yea and.......fuckin chomo

    I used Facebook to track down an ex-girlfriend who I consider was the one that got away. I found out she was married and had three kids.

    I won't ever do that shit again.

    I remember when that sting happened. A coworker of mine's husband got arrested. Made for some real awkwardness.

    This is why people shouldn't post their personal info on their profile.

    Next thing you know a guy has you kidnapped and locked in a basement and is "married" to you even though you refused to take his candy weeks earlier when he was trying to get you in his car...

    Facebook has helped be reconnect with family members I haven't seen in years. Can you get that from Twitter?

    Seems like if you have people who are important in your life you would stay in touch. I don't have a facebook account and I don't feel like i'm missing a thing. I do however have a twitter. I don't post I just follow about 12 poeple from OnA and a few bands for updates on shows.

    I'll guarantee you that facebook has facilitated thousands of times more extramarital affairs as Ashley Madison has

    i actually like facebook but with the caveat that i only accept friend requests from actual friends, not just people ive met
    i found a girl ive known my whole life, but we hadnt talked in since we were teenagers because she lives in another state, a little over a year later we're engaged. so finding someone from my past turned out great for me

    Nobody wanted anything to do with me 20 years ago, why would today be any different.

    I've never signed up for Facebook. I've been half tempted just to see if anyone from my past would recognize and friend me (more out of curiosity's sake than "I wanted to be loved!!!"), but never tempted enough to make the attempt. I figure if anyone wants to find me, there are enough ways for them to find me.

    If I became famous I'd do a Facebook account.

    I found an old childhood buddy who I was looking for years, since the intertubes came out. I figured I'd be lucky to even think of what he would look like but figured, picture older maybe fatter and, by chance, the one time he had his face for his profile, I found him. He works in NASCAR, with FOX, ESPN and SPEED. He's been mentioned twice, one write up on an ESPN page and Waltrip mentioned him a few weeks ago. He got me and another friend tickets to one race and going to see him this year in NH. Until I met him again, I never knew a mutual frind of ours growing up was actually his uncle. He sends me pictures every week from the race. What was really cool is that he sent me a video of his birthday party that I was at. We were about 8 or 9. If for nothing else, I'll be thankful to fb for that

    fb also helped out big time with our class reunion

    Exactly. I've never looked up old friends.

    If they were friends we'd still talk. Fuck em.

    I like finding and getting found by old friends and schoolmates. It's fun to talk to them and catch up, even if its only that one time or occasionally.

    I've actually asked myself, is there anyone from my past who I care what they're doing? And I figure it goes one of two ways. They're doing better than me, in which case I'll just get depressed. Or they're doing the same/worse than me, in which case I don't care. And when discussing where I am in my life, it's either "fine" or a spiel about how I live a life of chronic misery and intellectual boredom.

    I'm a facebook grump. People from my past try to talk to me but I would just rather not revisit those days.

    As far as CP goes, a teacher that taught me at my middle school was busted for child porn. He was also the girl's track coach and helped with volleyball. He can be found on that badteacher website. The piece of shit's name is Ken Holcomb. I always like to post his name and what he did whenever this topic comes up. Sick fucker.
