In conducting this event, if I have made you think two thoughts beyond what you would have - then I have been successful.
I get the strong impression I've caused people to examine closer what some take as a given.
The "addiction" doesn't end with deleting the account: the devil is on your shoulder for two weeks...."Are you SUUUuuuuure you want to delete?" I will post here if I get any further notices from Facebook.
And in a media like this, it is important to understand what created the media/idea. In Facebook's case, Mark Zuckerman, a recluse who couldn't face people. 5 billion people are using his prosthetic crutch to hobble about, themselves.
And as reiki points out, the shallowest of interactions.
The advertisements for games was appalling: "Mafia Wars" encourages you to assemble a gang, take over the town, make money. Other war games involve creating an empire, and conquering other cities/countries. How is this acceptable? Yet people brush it aside, "Oh, that's just..."
And those who accept..."oh, that's just" are liable to accept anything. Then wonder why their minds are cluttered with confussion.
Thanks for letting me rant.
