The question has been answered

I earlier wondered how long until Andy Moritz got a Facebook group shutdown.

You created a Page that has violated our Terms of Use. A Facebook Page is a distinct presence used solely for business or promotional purposes. Among other things, Pages that are hateful, threatening, or obscene are not allowed. We also take down Pages that attack an individual or group, or that are set up by an unauthorized individual. If your Page was removed for any of the above reasons, it will not be reinstated. Continued misuse of Facebook’s features could result in the permanent loss of your account. If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit the Terms applicable to Facebook Pages at http://www.facebook.com/terms_pages.php.

Basically, Facebook’s policy is one of anti-criticism. Unless of course it’s not.

The real issue lies in the poorly defined difference between fan pages and groups. They try to claim the two are “distinct”, but they’ve clearly failed as this is an ongoing issue throughout the entire website. Maybe they’ve just been distracted by their failed privacy policies.

Anyway…who just can’t wait for the group page?

Not a big deal, big deal happens

Two people got married. Socially, this ought not be a big deal. Whatever. Good for those two people. But since this is another big step forward for equality, it is a big deal.

One bride wore a knee-length lace dress and pearls. The other bride wore a yellow shirt and white suit. And when a pastor pronounced them “partners in life this day and for always” Tuesday, they hugged and smiled in front of wedding guests and nearly a dozen TV cameras and reporters.Sinjoyla Townsend

On the first day same-sex couples could marry in Washington, brides Angelisa Young and Sinjoyla Townsend were the first of three couples taking the plunge in morning ceremonies at the offices of the Human Rights Campaign, which does advocacy work on gay, lesbian and transgender issues. Other ceremonies were planned throughout the day.

“Today was like a dream for me,” Young said.

Editing posts on one’s blog is only funny and/or okay when the person is a spammer. It doesn’t so much work when it’s done to people putting forth real substance.

I actually didn’t say that, and if you are going respond to arguements, perhaps you could respond to arguements made, instead of making arguements up to respond to? Of course, it may be you can’t respond to those actually made, in which case, I understand the temptation.

That should read as follows.

I actually didn’t say that, (sic) and if you are going respond to arguements, (sic) perhaps you could respond to arguements (sic) made, instead of making arguements (sic) up to respond to? (sic) Of course, it may be you can’t respond to those actually made, in which case, (sic) I understand the temptation.

No one minds the occasional typo or spelling error. They happen. I routinely find errors in old posts. (And, in fact, there surely will be one somewhere in this post, no matter how closely I comb over it.) But god damn it. If you’re going to edit someone’s correction, at least also edit what was being corrected in the first place. Language is important.

Another great Hubble shot

I don’t know any details on this one and it isn’t recent, but it sure is purdy.

Andreas Moritz, Facebooker

Immediately following the Andreas Moritz fiasco that got my blog temporarily pulled, it appears Moritz created a Facebook fan page for himself. I just couldn’t resist the opportunity. But more importantly, I couldn’t resist writing this.

Andreas Moritz is a dangerous quack who gives shitty advice that can literally result in death for any who follow it. He doesn’t know what the fuck he’s talking about. No, seriously. I mean always. He just has no clue how unbelievably wrong he is about everything. Look at this shit.

“When one or more amino acids become depleted, DNA or RNA molecules break apart, leaving behind their protein fragments labeled HIV.”

No, no, what the fuck? This quack doesn’t have a basic education in biology. Don’t listen to him for anything.

And where did I write this? Why, on my new Facebook page, Andreas Moritz is a cancer quack.

Be sure to join before Moritz has that shutdown, too.
