To all members.......

Postby knife7knut » Wed Mar 13, 2019 10:28 pm

This is not a political discussion but merely a warning to those of us who like knives. As most of you know I have been collecting knives for over 60 years now and do not sell them anywhere.
Recently I had posted a thread on a knife site on Face Book about some knives of a specific style similar to one I did on here. I have posted on this site many times with no problems and was shocked when I got a notice saying the post had been rejected due to the content contrary to Face Books ,"standards & practices". When I read further it stated that posts that advertised weapons and ammunition of any type were prohibited. I found out that for some reason the for sale option had been activated which was what brought down the,"Wraith of Zuckerberg" on me.
Not being very computer-literate I finally managed to disable the for sale feature and the post went through. All's well that ends well I thought.
Well it turns out it hasn't ended. I was on there today and went to reply to a schoolmate's post about HIS problems with posting and it wouldn't let me respond. Later on I couldn't even log on to the site and when I finally did get on I could only look at about 5 or 6 posts and that was it.
So I decided to post a rebuff on my time line and guess what? I get a notice saying:"OOPS We're having trouble posting this and will try and fix it as soon as possible." I went in and mollified my language somewhat and it STILL wouldn't go through;so I guess my days of posting there are over.
One of the moderators of the forum has a warning posted about this at the beginning of the site and I am just passing this on to members here. If this post is not appropriate please delete it.

I think social media like Facebook is overrated. I just don't see putting personal business out for the world to see. I wouldn't do it. No offence.

And it's not political at all. Millions (regardless of political affilation) hate Facebook (myself included) and can't wait to see them burn.

How can a company with no easily discernible products and services make money? By selling your own personal information--that's how.

I do no social media. They are all geared to track everything you do. It will end up in all sorts of people’s hands including the government. Not a good thing in my opinion.

Facebook has been in the Canadian news. We have a Federal election coming up in October of this year and the Cdn. government is wanting Facebook to find and remove posts aimed at manipulating voters. I think FB might be taking down easy targets (nothing to do with voters or politics) so they can say "Look we took down xxxx number of posts this month".

No Facebook for me either. Aapk is the sum total of my social media.

Ha! And at least one oldish lady ;)
I do quite a bit of FB but I seldom put up a post of my own. I ‘like’ friends comments and comment on their posts, but I don’t like the drama.
What I do like abt FB is that it gives me the opportunity to stay in touch with friends and family that I don’t see very often. I try to keep my friends list down to people I’ve actually known, even if it was years ago. It’s great for keeping up with the music circle too. I can see friends videos and get info on who’s playing around town.
I think FB can be ok, depending on how you use it and who you present yourself as when you’re posting.

I'm gonna tell y'all sumthin'....

If you want to get in a FIGHT real QUICK.... just get out there on (non) social media and say ANYTHING about guns, knives, politics, religion, SPORTS or most ANYTHING..... SOMEBODY is NOT gonna like it!

To me... social media has turned into a place to go start a disagreement.
I joined back in the day when you could find those old "school chums" you haven't seen in decades but now..... it's a HUGE mess.

Facebook came straight from the devil.....
Go to h-e-double hockey sticks facebook... back to where you came from.

NO, I don't like facebook.....
