Sad

Let me tell you a sad story.

When my wife ran off with another man I was deeply upset.

So I rang her and left very personal messages on that awful BT 1571 service.

(for non-brits it's a free voice-mail service but you cannot leave an outgoing message unless you pay a monthly fee)

As it turned out, I was ringing the wrong number but even though the recipient knew me he did not bother to tell me. You're an arsehole Dave!

So, you takes your chance when dealing with these sorts of "services". Just don't go there.

P.S. I'm glad now that she left. :)

Has there been a day

Has there been a day in the past 6 months when there wasn't some new Facebook scandal or privacy issue or some other silliness.

Does this tell you anything? Like stay the hell off of faceplant and move on with life.

Thumb Down

You could say the same thing about the internet...

The fact that people who use a service have problems isn't a big shocker if there are half a freaking billion of them. I haven't even got a Facebook account, but ragging on it for making news when it has such a large userbase is somewhat disingenuous.

Boggle.

Who is going to believe that the head honcho at Interpol is using Facebook for official business?

Really?

People give information about current Interpol investigations over Facebook?
