    I like facebook. It is one of several outlets, and probably the most effective, to stay in touch with my racing friends/acqauintances. You can get something done in a few seconds that would have taken hours of legwork 10 years ago.

    The point of all this is that just because you have the means to dispense "news" worldwide immediately doesn't mean that it's a good idea to do so. Po' 'ol Seto got vetoed.

    It is not inherently evil, Like I said about cell phones too, they have saved lives.

    But it has become a monster. I am incredibly sick about (mostly women) complaining about their lives constantly.

    "UGHHH Casey is playing XBOX again and not paying any attention to me FML"

    I saw this status about 10x a day at one point. I'm glad Casey is smart enough to stay away from facebook or he would have ditched his GF by now.

    It invites unnecessary things into our lives, and personally I don't want to hear everyone's every thought. It is nice/sad to see how fat all the chicks from high school got, though (depending on who it was).

    And I've seen full-on arguments with 5 or more people on facebook statuses.

    Facebook is ultimately a good idea. It has rendered class reunions obsolete (always a good thing)
    But it has been turned to the uses of evil.

    The people that tend to do that get hidden. Problem solved.
