Day 28: Everyone has an opinion…

Photo Jul 12, 12 33 33I’ve ranted here before about this: irrespective of your opinion on certain issues, posting a book of a highly-opinioned status on Facebook of all places will have one of two effects: rally friends who already agreed with you, and antagonize those who didn’t. Only once have I ever seen a constructive Facebook discussion where someone’s mind was changed by the presentation of facts they hadn’t considered before.

For all our sakes, please: don’t use this medium to have serious discussions. The issues are far more complex than the Facebook architecture was designed to handle.

      With practically the lone exception of the above screenshot, Facebook was shockingly calm. But yes, Twitter pretty much exploded. And I have to say, I lost some respect for Roddy on that one.

        You mean you still had some after the Free Mike Vick incident, the I wish New Orleans would flood again incident, the I hate gays incident, or the It’s not like Joe Pa himself raped them incident?

        Wow. Well to be fair, I don’t really pay attention to pro football beyond the games themselves, so I was woefully ignorant of those gems. Yeah, big goose egg for ol’ Roddy.

        #RiseUp to putting down the phone when angry.

        #RiseUp to not giving a shit about asshat pro athletes.
