I LOVE hate speech. The more, the better. What I don't care for is thought police, whether employed by government or Suckerberg. Bring back the Polack jokes! Speak rudely, whether about morons or blondes. That's real freedom.

PR types so smart they deserve big bucks

FaceBUTT's Terms of Service are written by illiterate nitwits, precisely so you can't understand their meaning.

These appear to allow Facebook to exploit your name, likeness, content, images, private information, and personal brand by using it in advertising and in commercial and sponsored content — without any compensation to you. Facebook claims the right to monetize, not just your images, but a sizable portion of your entire online identity. They want to see Facebook became a place where users are disrespected and their experience is a feeling of being victimized and exploited.

NSA admits massive call slurp

When they have it, they should not give it to Zuckerberg. Are we reading Peter Strzok's text messages because of this? The California legislature has passed incomprehensible laws to supposedly protect our privacy. These politicians did not trust the public to vote on a privacy referendum. The fourth amendment to the US Constitutuion bans seizures without a warrant. Who has access to these calls and texts?

Tree

You are responsible

Do not trust FaceBUTT with any of your info. Gurgle is even worse about collecting all about us. I've heard people say they trust them, but not NSA, Chi-coms, or other governments. The problem with that idea is that your government agency likely slurps up whatever these entities collect about us. Never use Google search, Chrome, or G-mail. PaleMoon is a safer browser. Keep your add-ons like uBlock Origen up to date. Never use Facebook.

If they don't turn it off, it continues to ring. Put the switch to turn off the bell in an inconvenient location. They also must have no access to a phone or other means of communication, because he otherwise may set up a new scam. In addition, there must be an appropriate fine, which is much larger than what.he could have earned.

Never used Facebutt, because FB shares too much personal information with every developer, marketing slimelord, scammer, and stalker.
