Over the years I've seen a lot of comments about how these forums are too PC. I see it every time I send a warning to someone for an obviously racist/sexist/nasty slur. Then there are the inevitable comments such as 'no wonder no one posts here anymore'.

Well tonight I got my 3rd or 4th stint in facebook jail. The first time was because someone called my crew and my self 'bad men'.  My reply was that we weren't bad men - this is a bad man and posted a pic of Adolf Hitler. 30 days in the slammer Big smile

Next time some twat whom I didn't know said something rather nasty about someone they didn't know so I called them out on it. From memory that got me a week in the sin bin. Ironic because they used a four letter word starting with 'C'. Same word I used defending someone I knew to be right. I got a week for that one Big smile.

There was another trivial one, I don't recall the details.

Tonight in a hunting group in a conversation about what calibres work best for deer, I posted that a neck or head shot will work for any calibre (similar words at least) and I get 2 days for bullying and threatening behaviour.

Next time I get someone sulking because they get a 'friendly' warning from me and they threaten to leave I'll just laugh on the inside Big smile

Just thought I'd share for those with fragile minds who are easily butt hurt and for those who are of a more robust disposition Wink

Yeah it certainly has its place  but the algorithms  need a tune up. FB is a great tool for stuff such as advertising things like our gurnard comp. I only advertise it here and on fb plus our club newsletter of course.

Not to be taken too seriously though is facebook. I like the KK story and PCJ your wife was right.

I've never joined facebook, so haven't had these problems. From what I see most people use it "friend" people they don't like to spy on them.

I've got better things to do

Although from what  mate says, it's god for up to date info on where the fish are. So it could be useful, but then I seem to take pleasure in doing things the hard way. and try and find them myself.

I haven't had a FB ban yet, but have been threatened by individuals (representing a large group) that their imaginary friend will strike me down with lightning for blasphemous posts lol. Still waiting.

I use Facebook like a forum and have to admit that it's 100x more active than traditional forums which are sadly dying. Don't use my real name, provide no personal information and only read/post on group pages. A third party browser extension called Social Fixer removes all the crap from the screen and advertising making it quite usable. I have no "friends" LOL

Problem with using Facebook like a forum is that the search is a nightmare. On a decent forum you can dig up old posts and mine them for advice. FB is not like that. Great for up to the minute posts on which twizel canal is firing, crappy for searching through old posts for information on techniques etc. 

Reddit is another one, some good information buried under a metric Megaton of ****.
