Hello to all those faithfully reading and hopefully enjoying this effort to make even the worst horror movie more watcha... aw, screw that - I'm not that good. If a movie makes you cringe because yet another batch of unlikable teens that are pushing 30 are inching toward their deaths, having a party no one does anywhere ever, a paranormal movie is boring you to tears with unending pans of empty rooms, or thanks to CGI technology when people finally bite it, their blood squirts everywhere except on the victim, the ground, the people next to them... you're in good company and this is the right place for you.

MY FINAL (SO FAR) THOUGHTS ON THIS WHOLE FACEBOOK MESS (AND THANK YOU JOHN HUGHES 1950-2009)...








Dear Mr. Zuckerberg:

We accept the fact (because, admittedly, we have no choice) that you are an invisible giant standing on the backs of your underlings, running a huge money making corporation and have little regard for the pitiful ants that scurry about, using your site and making you the aforementioned money.

We do NOT accept the fact that we had to sacrifice our Facebook accounts on the basis of rules that your company itself regularly breaks and changes whenever the mood strikes them, and regular Facebook members with 'agendas' can wipe out hundreds of accounts at will (Deleting Native Americans on Indigenous Peoples' Day was just a crazy coincidence? How stupid do you think we are?).

But in either case we think that you're crazy to make us provide photo ID (which, if you really thought about it, proves nothing - I could be a gummy bear and the license could be forged for under $20) telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions, making you the big-ass money.

But what we found out that each one of us is a Native American, a member of the LGBT community, a person escaping from abuse, or simply a person that, for innocent reasons, cannot have their 'real' name appear on their account. And that will never change no matter how much you think you can threaten and/or force us, rich and privileged white man.

Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours, the Ex-Facebook Club
