Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So I just undeleted my Facebook account (Meiss panics, water still wet)

    I've never had a facebook, but spam accounts keep following my twitter.

    I don't care how many "sexy pics" they offer, I'm not going to click on those virus links.

    sometimes I'm about to post "What the hell do people do with all the time they spend on facebook anyways?"

    but then I remember I'm an extremely boring person and don't have many friends

    and I think oh

    right

    I think I should go on a facebook hiatus

    it is how I keep in contact with a lot of college people so I don't think I will ever delete it but I definitely don't need to read inane status updates all the time.

    Never put anything on the internet that you wouldn't want to appear in a newspaper. Facebook is fine if you don't use it like an idiot.

    what i don't understand is why people are so fucking paranoid

    it's as easy as not putting information you don't want the general public to know about you on the internet

    if facebook asks you what your favorite movie is, and you tell them it's star wars, what on earth do you think are the implications of that?
    oh no! a potential employer is going to find it and realize you're a nerd! oh no!

    now if facebook asks you for your credit card info or your sin number to add farmville to your account, clearly an alarm should go off. and you should just maybe not do that....

    i just really don't get any of this
    it seems so simple to me. I've added all of my clients to facebook, that's sometimes the easiest way to get a hold of me. I don't put anything personal that I don't want to share on there because why on earth would anyone do that ever?

    "oh but my boss might see pics of me drinking"
    if you are over the age of 21 in the USA it is legal to drink, they cannot fire you for that
    "oh but my boss might see pics of me getting high"
    why the fuck did you let people take pictures of you doing something illegal in the first place? okay so you did... that's dumb of you untag them
    "but my boss might find out that last saturday instead of going to work i went to the renaissance fair and neckbearded out"
    that's your own fault for being dishonest, and again... if you skipped off work, why would you post about it on the internet?

    i just don't get it
    i never will i don't think. people are hilariously paranoid, and paranoia is infectious it seems.

    the best advice I can give a person

    when you go to a sex store and buy a penis pump, or when you go to a strip club and get a 5 hour private dance, or when you go to that new semi legal brothel on fifth street

    only use cash

    I really can't get into Twitter. I'm sure its pretty cool but every Twitter update I see longer than 60 characters is usually completely undecipherable "RT #coolstuff like @jim said hahaha yes @mandude yes lolmao" and I can't figure out what the fuck is going on.

    speaking of identity theft I just got an email from pizza hut saying thanks for ordering a pizza in Grapevine, TX

    I don't live there!

    I think it's just a screwed up email since I don't have a charge for that on my card but I changed my password anyways

    Facebook is essentially my replacement for e-mail and any kind of IM between friends. And it keeps me in touch with any that may have moved away. I don't use any of the goofy ass applications, and I tend to block anything that I don't want. I got my privacy settings worked out for the most part so people I don't want to see stuff won't see it.

    The whole privacy thing does kinda worry me a bit but really now, what could they actually do with some of it? Oh they know I like a certain thing, SHIT DAWG BETTER HIDE

    I dunno. I'm not too elitist about this whole social networking thing.

    sometimes I update my status with things along the lines of "i just scratched my butt crack and it felt amazing" and then I remember my grandmother is on my facebook. (she is the only older family allowed)

    and then she'll leave something like "oh, why do you have to be so stupid"

    Yeah I don't really understand what's so bad about most of the stuff I have on Facebook.

    I took off my birth year today, the only thing questionable I have left on there is my cell number, which is set to friends only.

    i think the big thing people hate is the catered advertising
    and people are all butt hurt over the fear of having their email addresses sold to mass marketing companies
    which is why my facebook email address is one that i have made purely for junk mail

    i don't even check it, it just exists.
    anything i sign up for, i sign up using that, it's glorious.

    Beavo, if a teacher has pictures of themself drinking and the kids parents see it, they will complain about the teacher.

    And if the teacher gets complaints, they will be the first on the firing squad when it comes to complaints.

    During a tough economy when layoffs are gonna happen, being considered a liability at all by your boss is a bad thing.

    yes they are

    I am waiting for my mom to say something I can submit to mymomisafob.com but she would be horribly offended if she knew

    here is something I wrote on my brother's wall about talking to her:

    i was talking to mom on the phone and i said i was watching a bollywood movie and she said "the squatter?" and i said "what?" "the squatter. you know, it's so famous now. i haven't seen it yet though." "do you mean slumdog millionaire?" "yes. the squatter."
