If You Post that Dumb-As-Shit Facebook Legal Disclaimer on Your Wall, You’re a Tool Bag

In response to the new Facebook guidelines I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details, illustrations, comics, paintings, professional photos and videos, etc. (as a result of the Berner Convention).For commercial use of the above, my written consent is needed at all times!(Anyone reading this can copy this text and paste it on their Facebook Wall. This will placethem under protection of copyright laws.) By the present communiqué, I notify Facebook that it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, disseminate, or take any other action against me on the basis of this profile and/or its contents. The aforementioned prohibited actions also apply to employees, students, agents and/or any staff under Facebook’s direction or control. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of my privacy is punished by law (UCC 1 1-308-308 1-103 and the Rome Statute).

Facebook is now an open capital entity. All members are recommended to publish a notice like this, or if you prefer, you may copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement at least once, you will be tacitly allowing the use of elements such as your photos as well as the information contained in your profile status updates.

Oh here we go again with these fucking idiots… Once again, another social virus is spreading on Facebook. A social chain virus, spread by idiotic users that mindlessly copy and paste text. Text that some wannabe toolface law student likeßrad Gorson wrote one day on a power trip. (yes, I used a Germanß as a B even though it’s pronounced like an S. That jackoffprobablyhas some Google Alerts shit set up and I would rather not deal with him). But I digress…

Do you morons actually think that if you post this “disclaimer” on your wall, that Facebook will respect it? Fuck no dumb shit! It’s Facebook. They can do whatever the fuck they want. They own your content. If you read the idiotic terms of service, you already agreed to this shit when you signed up. It’s the fucking internet. Do you think anything on the internet is ever private? You dumb motherfuckers. I don’t care if you’re Christ himself, the TOS still applies.


Facebook’s New Chat Sidebar Sucks

This Giz article sums it up better than I can (and it may or may not be funnier than me, too)

I was going to blog about this new dumb ass Facebook chat bar, which is ugly, awkward, garbage and a waste of space. However, I was upstate all weekend on 56k, so I got lazy. Just read the article. I’m too lazy to blog. That being said:

I NEVER used Facebook chat. When it first started, there was a stupid ass bug where your cursor would lose focus even if you were in another browser tab as soon as an IM came in. OK so that’s been fixed. But I don’t need people creeping me when I’m online. It’s pathetic. I’ve been a Google Chat man since 2006. Nuff said

Cut Out This Maybe Bullshit

You know what’s terrible? A maybe. If you haven’t noticed, I don’t like uncertainty. Give me a yes or a no. I hate bullshitters – give me a straight, to the point answer. Simple as that. Seriously – want to get anywhere in the real world? Be a CEO? You need to make decisions. And this ramble has nothing to do with people messing with my head. It relates to…

Facebook events! Nothing pisses me off more than when people RSVP to crap and say “maybe attending.” Like are you serious? It is either a “yes, I’m going” or a “no, I hate you/ no, I have something else to do/ no, your event sucks.” I literally had someone admit to me that he or she clicks maybe to be polite. Because declining an event is apparently an insult. Well you know what? Grow some balls and stop being so polite. Because to me, a maybe is a “I’m really not going to go, but I am too much of a little bitch to decline.” It’s the worst when I’m reading the maybe list and know someone on there who wouldn’t be caught dead at the event. And then I just shake my head in shame.

It could be that Facebook is annoying as hell and you need to get rid of your 321 event notifications. In that case, click the “remove from my events button.” That’s what I do. It doesn’t confirm you as a guest, it doesn’t put you on the decline list, and the person can plan accordingly. Be like me – I know my shit.

The only exception is college parties. People hop around and I understand that in college, people show up if they feel like it . For college parties, that’s totally fine because anything goes. But if it’s a formal event and you’re maybe-ing, you’re a moron.

PS -It’s 4AM, I just watched two episodes of Dexter and it’s absolutely hilarious and have absolutely no business being awake, let alone blogging. But only 3 people read these anyway, so who cares. I set this to auto publish at an hour people are actually awake.

Facebook Pisses Me Off Sometimes

Facebook has gone to the shitter, and here’s why. It used to be cool and informative, but now it’s just useless. The recent redesign wrecked things. I am usually a fan of web 2.0 fancy, glittery, pretty AJAXified web apps, hell, I even supported the new looks when everyone hated it. However, I actually learned some usability testing from all that time I spent (checking email and reading Digg) in Systems Design and Implementation class. All the AJAX fancy shit doesn’t help when it’s asynchronously sending “poop wars” notifications back and fourth.

Speaking of notifications, that’s one thing the dev team ruined. Back in the day, notifications were useful and relevant to real life. Now, we get live updates on who became a fan of Edward Cullen and that Jimmy scored a blumpkin on the “Which blowjob are you quiz.” Number 1 pet peeve: They moved the birthdays to Oshkosh, all the way at the bottom on the right column. Well that doesn’t help me, I don’t look there. Put the damn birthdays and other real life useful information on top so we can actually remember things and people won’t hate me. I became enraged when I did my random profile check (for the first time in a while, because I used to have a life before summer break) of someone I haven’t heard from in a few months and realized I missed a birthday by two weeks. Fuck. Well if notifications were engineered better then… I don’t know, it doesn’t matter anyway, it just annoys me.

Random plugs: By the way the Yankees are awesome again, CC is the biggest boss that I’ve seen thus far and I just watched Taken which was a killer movie. Watch it now (yes 5AM) if you haven’t seen it. Oh shit, my server time is an hour off – it says 4AM. I should fix that.

Facebook Worm

First it was the AIM virus, then it was the MySpace friend hijack… It has finally happened – a Facebook worm that hijacks your computer and posts spam on your friends’ walls.


Fear not, Facebook has blocked people from making posts if it contains questionable content. Just because it is blocked on Facebook’s side does not mean your computer is not infected anymore. If the creator of this worm changes the message, it may activate again, or steal your password – you just never know.

Here are some tips if you are infected:

  • Change your Facebook password immediately. You don’t know if the malicious program doing this has stolen your password and sent it to someone.
  • NEVER click on the links in people’s spam posts. It probably contains a malicious script that uses an exploit in Windows to execute code that will infect your computer
  • Make sure you have all the latest operating system updates patches installed (Windows XP / Mac OSX Tiger or Leopard). Don’t ignore these. They are released to fix vulnerabilities that will stop problems like this from happening.
  • Update your Antivirus definitions and Antispyware definitions and run full scans
  • Come find me because I want to figure out what is causing this and create a removal application.
