Why must we see these stupid come-on ads for twitter and facebook with every message? Twitter is for people whose attention span is limited to 140 characters and facebook is for people who have no sense of privacy and apparently no identity worth stealing. So now we see ads for them everywhere.

Pfui!

For those that use Tweeter, Face Book or Google+, they can put AquaBoards.com in the front of more potential users.

All "social media" is for losers who need to have their vapid existence validated by other losers. Kinda like "chat." That's my story and I'm sticking to it. - Frank :tycoon: :bigboss:

Yep. That's why I never encourage anyone to listen. I've said it before and I'll say it, again. It's for my amusement and I don't need any participants for me to enjoy myself doing it. lol. - F.

Actually its for losers who want to know where the good bands are every weekend without doing much work. Just "Friend" or "Like" them on Facebook and their gigs show up on your home page. I love it, more time drinking and dancing, less time looking for a good place to hang out on Friday night!

Actually, facebook for me, is a way to easily share pictures of my daughter with family members that I rarely see because they live all over the place-some even in the Bahamas. Also, it is a way to see what everyone is doing and plan get togethers. I don't put anything personal on there or post any incriminating pictures. There's nothing I'd be ashamed for a potential employer to see-some of them do check facebook. I also have LinkedIn which is a professional networking site. You can set your privacy settings pretty high if you want so only your friends can see it. I don't go that far but many do. I would always do secure browsing if you are on facebook though. It is easy to set it up that way.

I would never do Twitter. It seems absolutely ridiculous to me.


Oh, and the tweet and like symbols above every post are annoying as hell.

What cracks me up are people who assume that because someone chooses not to use something that they do not know how to do so. Then they profess to be so "open-minded" when in reality they are judgmental of another's lifestyle, simply because it does not coincide with their own.

How evolved. lol.

Marli,

I was using "social media" back in 1980. The online community has been an integral part of my life since then. I have been training people in using sophisticated computer systems for over 30 years, in addition to a number of other topics. I'm not speaking out of ignorance, but out of a long experience and in full knowledge of the benefits and RISKS associated with the current generation of social media.

Why call folks who DO use FB, and actually KNOW what they are doing "people who have no sense of privacy and apparently no identity worth stealing"? That, to me, indicates a closed mind.

Some people use the page for more than games and status updates. I have my privacy settings exactly where I want them, not many folks can see much on my page, and I only recently changed the photo option to Friends of Friends, and that is only for certain albums. Basically, for me, Facebook is a photo album.

I have an identity, and I have a larger sense of privacy than you'd EVER know. Stalkers tend to make folks very private. And very careful.

I just don't understand why calling people names and denigrating them is ok. I see it here more and more. I expect it from some, that's why they are on my ignore list. You weren't one I expected it from, is all. Just because they like something you don't, why is that wrong? Can you explain that to me?

You are in a minority. I've seen too many cases of people losing job opportunities because of incautious entries in facebook to ever want to use it.

I do agree, a lot of folks seem to not understand how to change their privacy settings (or they just don't care to). I won't play any games on there simply because the 'apps' ask for a whole lot of info that I don't feel comfortable giving up. So don't get me wrong, I agree with you on that.

I just don't agree with calling people names (not you so much as another who may have hurt Ms Devine's feelings in the process) or speaking ill of them (and yeah, unfortunately that was you).

By the way, will you be going to the OCA this year? I didn't get a chance to meet you at the Catfish Convention last October, so I wondered if you'd be heading north.

DING DING DING! Exactly! Except, THIS is public, with no chance to change settings. Also about my FB: I don't go by my real name there either, hah.

Oh, and I posted a "Public Service Announcement" for all my local friends earlier regarding the river breaching its' banks and flooding the state road (and neighborhood near me) so folks don't come this way and have to backtrack. Another good thing about FB!

How about knocking off your slimy innuendo. You're nothing but a coward and a trouble maker. It's your job, now, to tell us who's feelings we may have hurt? You don't like what I say, have the balls to call me out, or are you "ignoring" me. lol.

Msdevine is a grown woman. If she really felt that I intentionally and with malice tried to hurt her feelings, I'm sure she can speak-up, for herself.

Keep your nose out of my business. Totally and forever.

BTW - I'll be at OCA this year to specifically see if you have the courage to say to my face, what you so glibly say about me in chat. I want you to look me in the eye and repeat all of the things that you have said about me over the years. I seriously doubt that you'll have the balls to do so, but I in no way doubt that you have a pair of balls.

You're a total loser.

Due to work and family responsibilities, as well as medical issues, I don't travel any more. At the Catfish Convention, I only attended the all-day auction, not the rest of the weekend. Were you at the auction? If so, what did you pick up there?

Msdevine
09-07-2011, 06:45 PM
OK, lets slow this frieght train down...... I just woke from a nap and saw my name being thrown around. First I do use Facebook, I Have nothing to hide. So I can post my link later and everyone can check me and my kids and see who my friends are and what I do on there and I don't care. I don't mind. Some people want more privacy ( my son does) and that is fine.
Now ((Msdevine is a grown woman. If she really felt that I intentionally and with malice tried to hurt her feelings, I'm sure she can speak-up, for herself.)) U got it Frank. I am a grown women and can and will speak for myself. But U did fine... I know we were kidding around then someone just butted in.. NO names but we know... Right?

Actually, I slept thru most of the auction. I did go down toward the end, mainly I bought cherry shrimp. I did steal some plants from Peanutbrain though! Cat Con was fun, but OCA I think is more fun, maybe because I know more people, but also I like the variety of fish, and the shopping all weekend long rather that just one night. If you ever do get a chance to come north, I'd love to meet you! OCA is really a blast, and a lot of Aber's go. A lot of really fun folks, all slightly crazy!

I'm on facebook too, but as I said before, mine is more private. Stalkers suck, been there, don't want to go there again, burned the tshirt. I'll check your page, thanks for the link.

YES! Go here: http://www.ohiocichlid.com/

And this is the hotel:
Holiday Inn – Strongsville
Phone: 440-238-8800
15471 Royalton Road
Strongsville, Ohio 44136

When you make reservations you should call, that way you get the cheaper rate ($65.00 per night) when you mention OCA.

The hotel is six floors with an elevator, and first floor normally goes fast to sellers. Personally, I don't like the first floor because the party goes ALL NIGHT, and I need some sleep. If he can use the elevator, you'll have a better night sleep. If not, ask for one around the corner from the main hallway, that may work. Then again, if you WANT to party all night, first floor is the place to be!!

If that website doesn't answer all your questions, ask in here. There are a lot of folks who have gone every year and would be more than happy to help you out! Probably start a new thread though...heh.

I wish I had nothing to do all day but spew venomous tripe. What a life. It must be very nice.

09-07-2011, 10:33 PM
Yeah Frank, you are on my ignore list, and you know that. Only reason I saw THIS charming post was cause msdevine quoted you. I admit to reading your post when it looked as if you had caused hurt feelings, but otherwise no, you aren't really that interesting. Plus, you did say goodbye a long time ago. That's when I put you on ignore. Figured if you weren't REALLY going to leave, even after your boo hoo story, I'd just do it myself. Poof, you are gone, mostly. Works for me.

Oh, and I'd have no issues saying straight to your face anything I say elsewhere. People who know me know this: I don't say things I wouldn't repeat. So please, make this a reality:

"BTW - I'll be at OCA this year to specifically see if you have the courage to say to my face, what you so glibly say about me in chat. I want you to look me in the eye and repeat all of the things that you have said about me over the years. I seriously doubt that you'll have the balls to do so, but I in no way doubt that you have a pair of balls."

Because you never did show up at the Catfish Convention last October, even though you basically said the same thing back then. You really should try to keep your word. Show up. People would love to meet the coryologist. Put a face to the name. I'll be there, maybe I'll see you there? Heh...doubtful.

Oh, and yeah, you are still on ignore and I have no intentions of reading a reply from you. If you want me out of your business, you could stop reading and posting to me, too. It works wonders, I promise!! Can you resist? Yep, that's the challenge, I'm betting you can't.

Radio show... Frank... when ????
The show will relaunch on September 14th at 7:30 PM. The name has been changed from "Monday is AquaBid Music Night on Wednesdays," because out of respect for Mark, I don't want anything that I say or do, to reflect poorly on AB.

The show is now "Douchenozzle Radio" and will be a opportunity for me to excoriate the losers in our society, from politicians to so-called business leaders to the average douche bag members of what's left of our once-proud society and the dishonesty, fear, hatred, bigotry, ideology and narrow and/or closed-mindedness that too many people now exhibit in their daily intercourse with the world around them. Please don't tune in, if you are faint of heart. I will be taking no prisoners, no one will be spared and I hope that you are shocked and appalled - yet, hopefully inspired at the incredibly brutal honesty with which I will endeavor to present my positions, as douchenozzley as they may be. This time out - "Sorry. No more Mr. NiceGuy."

I MISS the radio show!!!!!
Truth be told, so do I. A great deal. It's nice to take a break and have an opportunity to recharge that lump of doo-doo that passes for my brain. lol.

Oh and like Ms. D said , you can have my back anytime also... :D
I always will. You can take that to the bank. I'll never let any dark, malevolent force attack you without my coming to your defense. We can't let the self-loathing haters of the world get the upper-hand. We must be vigilant and call them out and shine a bright light on them to expose their misplaced rage, lest they foster more negativity in what is increasingly becoming a smoldering cesspool of vitriol. We must all work diligently to crush these individuals before they spread their repulsive and destructive behavior to every corner of society.

Being a megalomaniacal psychopath, I have come to understand that most people will not stand up to such towering evil and that it has become my responsibility to rid the world of this type of menace, one pathetic cretin, at a time.

I promise to never let you down.

And now - a nice cup of morning joe, just to get my juices flowing. I'm having a hard time putting my thoughts to paper, this morning.

Smiles. alberto

P.S. Thanks for reading this - especially to those who claim to "ignore" me. What a load of crap, that is. Face it - you're powerless to not read this drivel. lol.
