Passive Aggresive Messages to Facebook

Hello everyone! So, this really is a shitty update. It really is. But anyways, today I was on facebook, and this one page I had liked (obviously unliked) posted some really offensive material, and for some reason it just really pissed me off. So, I did post a reasonable reply to what they had said, but it only got made fun of and ignored. So needless to say, not much happened. Then the admin continued to tell people to kill themselves and encourage horrible harassment and what not. That was when I decided to report them to the Facebook staff and hope for deletion of the page, or at least the admin losing publishing rights for a bit. Deleting the page seems a bit harsh.

 

  After waiting like, 2 hours, I got a reply from the facebook staff saying they found nothing wrong with the page (even though I read the terms, and the post definitely went against them). So being pissed off again, I wrote a long winded and detailed reason why I was dissatisfied with their reporting service. For those of you who have never reported something to Facebook, they will give you the option to give feedback on their reporting protocol and whatnot.

  Here is what I said to them:

Okay, so the page I reported. The admin DID delete the post saying if anyone is mad about anything, they should kill themselves. I do believe that violates the self harm section. Then the user also posted the phone number of some person that was on the opposing side of what they had said (I will refer to that in a bit) and he/she was encouraging the page’s likers to call/text/harass the person who owns the number. That breaks the bullying and harassment section in the rights. The image that started this all, was an image that called the band BOTDF (Blood on The Dance Floor) horrible, gay, and faggots. I do believe using ‘gay’ and the word ‘faggots’ is against the part of the rules that mention discrimination against orientation.

 Now, I don’t mean any disrespect towards Facebook or it’s staff, but obviously I was really offended by their posting. The whole page was being really horrible, and I wouldn’t be shocked if some people had taken things too seriously and harmed themselves. After all, the band is really popular with a large mass of teenagers that harm themselves due to distress and depression.

 I am probably taking this too seriously. But I don’t know.. I was just thinking that maybe the page doesn’t have to be deleted. Maybe the admin could lose publishing rights for some time. I just feel like the way this person acts towards people isn’t exactly healthy, and some of it probably not legal as far as human rights go. Again, probably overreacting. But for some reason the whole thing really bothered me.

 Thank you for reading, and I am sorry for starting so much about this. I’ll understand if no action is taken, but I am generally worried for the well being of some of the people who liked that page.

 

  I ended up not sending it, because after long thought I realized it really wasn’t worth making a big deal over. Yes, the page did say some hateful things. But did I really want to churn the waters even more? Ultimately, I was afraid that it would turn into one of those huge ordeals that somehow makes it’s way to the news. I know that is highly unlikely, but hey, you never know. This page has almost 200k likes, and I think something like that being shut down could easily stir up some publicity.

   I do want to be famous, yes. But I don’t want to be known as the girl who shut down a mega page on Facebook. No way. Besides, I was probably making it out to be a bigger deal than it already was.

 

  As always, I am open to everyone’s input and opinions. Feel free to comment and tell me what you think on the whole ordeal!

A Clone of His Empty Life

December 8, 2011 at 10:25 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

  I hate him. It is stupid, and I don’t normally hate people. But he takes the cake.

  There is this girl, and she is a good friend of mine. . . and I can’t help but admit that I have also liked her for quite a while too. I even asked her out at one point, but that was when she started dating this guy. So it’s easy for one to infer that I obviously didn’t get the girl.

   If you were to know her before she began dating him, you would remember an amazing person. She had a bubbly personality underneath her demure countenance. She was adorable. She always knew how to keep a conversation going, and always knew the right thing to say. As far as looks go, she has a petite frame and had always wore clothes that showed it off in a perfect and completely non-trashy way. Somehow she always managed to have perfect skin complexion, and her hair also had a beautiful shine to it.

  But then we get to the point where she has now been dating him for around 2 years. The change is great. I probably should mention now, that the boyfriend has always done drugs. . . well at least he has for as long as I’ve known him. The first time I met him he was strung out on some drug, and that is how he is all the time. And now he has her the same as he. Her once beautiful personality has now transformed to be like his. She is so out of it most of the time that all normal conversations have ceased to exist. They all consist of “Yeah”s and “uh huh”. No matter what you say. That gorgeous, face? It’s now riddled with sore that one gets from taking drugs. The clothes she wears now show her lack of care about her appearance. Baggy and dirty, holed and worn. No longer showing off the beautiful body under it. Did I mention how sweet she smelled before she began dating him? Now she smells strongly of cigarettes, the exact smell I am allergic to.

  Seeing her downward decline saddens me, so much that I have a hard time finding words to explain it. But, what can I do? I wish I could talk to her of this, but she is older than me. . . and she loves him. Trying to talk her out of this lifestyle would make her hate me, no matter how much true concern I display. I don’t know what to do other than watch her diminish before my eyes, and to remember back on the amazing conversations we don’t have anymore. I just wish now that I could take her from him and correct things, but even now it may be too late.

 Hi to anyone who is following my blog. I am sorry that I have been gone so long, and I am also sorry that I am returning with such an unhappy post. I have been super busy lately, and just now as things that are bothering me began to build up, the stress and need to rant to someone who won’t know who these people are, kind of reminded me of wordpress. I promise the next blog will be on a happier note, and I promise it will come sooner.

Thank you for reading and following my blog ❤
