Not being funny or nasty, but reading all this stuff I sometimes wonder (and I think this is a good topic to talk about)...

Do you guys have actuall friends? You know, people who move, to talk to in real life, who show emotions...

...or does your social live stop here...?

They really couldn't just write ZΦBΦBΣ

It's amusing seeing Albany via NL google, all the places near there are Dutch-names anyway (e.g. Gansevoort, Watervliet...)

It's called compartmentalization. I wouldn't let normal people know I hang out here.

And I'm not inviting anyone to the Facebook account I finally opened a couple of weeks ago until I figure out how to do that. Which is not top priority right now.

Someone would have to donate to the NYSDOT a few Φs (An Adopt-a-Greek-Letter program?)

Indeed. And apparently Watervliet's even pronounced more or less correctly.

Not even me???

It's just that some people seem to be on here 24/7. I have also joined the SSC Group on Facebook, and sometimes when the server is down on here I see comments of some members who seem to turn suicidal because they can't log in. I also see members who are online 27/7, so they obviously never go out for a beer or two, and then come home and check SSC and push themselves towards a permanent ban

Or some people come on here and they seek attention. And they make stupid trollish remarks (Montreal, Tilburg...)

And some people, especially in this section need a god. So they turn to Chris Zwolle, which I find sickening at times.

Sooner or later I might get a ban. I get on with most people, I like to chat and follow up my interests in international infrastructure. I do have a life as well, so I'm not on here all the time. And if I do get a ban, I will miss some of you, but it won't affect me. I know this section is being moderated in a shit way sometimes, but then again I don't see the moderators as gods, like some of you do. I've got friend moderators on here, and they tell me that some of them a power-munging *******s.

And then we got some who just talk and talk, because they got nobody else to talk to. Some of them are right here on the RRA.

So... who are you?

The thing was set up by one of our attention-***** social-media people at work one afternoon when it was slow. I let her do it, immediately logged on and changed the password she'd used to one of my own, and have logged on maybe twice since. In fact, I'm on the verge of forgetting it's there. I guess I could "friend" you, but what would you get out of that if there's nothing else going on on my page? If page is even the right term for it - I just don't know that stuff. For that matter, what would I get out of it?

Nothing personal, it's...well, Facebook hasn't been part of my life and I'm methodical by nature... (And as I said, I am campaigning for a promotion; I don't need at the moment to become a Facebook addict on company time. I keep SSC minimized and compulsively hit refresh every few minutes out of force of habit, but I should probably cut back on that. They don't really seem to care, but you never know what they're monitoring.)

Oh what the heck, let's see what happens.

The rest of that post, I'm leaving alone.

EDIT: I've forgotten my Facebook password. :/

Please.

So now it's feeding me "people I may know," an awful lot of whom are in Mayrhofen.

Does that mean it's trawling your contacts for me, and if so do you really want it doing that?

This is the sort of thing that makes me uncomfortable.

How come it's feeding Mayrhofen? We're not even Facebook friends yet...




Edit.... Or are we?....?

Be careful what you wish for.

You need better sources of entertainment.

So... Now I'm your friend. I am also your only friend at the moment. I live in a village with a population of 4000, and most people know each other here, and subsequently also became Facebook friends. Its search engine figured that you might be a local, because you haven't got anybody else on your friends list. Get a few more, family members, look up old friends from high school, and it will suggest people you may know who may even have been in your circle of friends of the past

Feel free to roam my profile and see my pictures. Now that you are a friend, you can see what I'm like. And I only allow friends to browse that, to everyone else it's invisible. I got it secured, and any requests from people I don't know, recall or have no mutual friends with I usually ignore.

My main friends are my family of course, the locals I know in Mayrhofen and a lot of friends from all over Europe and America - past and present. A frightening amount of people in my list has seen me naked....

Edit: Anyone else on here who have known me for a while... pm me for details.

SO much time-wasting potential, so little time to waste.

Maybe after I've started a load of laundry, done some dishes, watched the second half of my alma mater's basketball game (since I've listed them as a favorite team, I probably ought to pay attention), called my mother....

EDIT. You could be banned any minute now....

FL? Co to jest?

R_UK, half an hour playing with my profile. You are such a bad influence.

Really dealing with real life now. Later.
