Liking comments? Who asked for it on Facebook I wonder. Just how lazy do they want our children to be? Or how lazy do they want to make us? Who gives them such idiotic ideas? I couldn’t stand the “uber cute” “Likeyyy!!!” check box below posts that I see on so many blogs these days. And now this.
And when you add something to “interests” on your FB profile, they turn it into a page and then desperately keep suggesting the page to you until you join the page or throw the laptop away. No wonder so many people are now members of pages called “travling”, “khalil gibran”, “tokin on da fone”. Why don’t they just kill me instead?
It’s things like these that sometimes stop me dead in my tracks just when I think I am beginning to believe in oonchi soch like democracy and freedom of speech. But as long as Big Daddy Google (it turned out to be a spambot alright, but I still think it is a lame excuse for randomly deleting years of blogging and memories recorded with Blogger by people who brought in the trend in the first place) and this neo blogger called AbhiD (who recently threatened me on someone’s comment box that he will write about some of my posts in some thesis of a post he is doing on questionable content/ content in bad taste on various blogs. I am glad, the other bloggers that he is going to write about are celebrities in their own right. Although I do want to tell him that if research is such a passion for him, he should consider doing a REAL PhD. And no, I am not going to link him here until he does that post he was talking about. Then I will gloat. :D) are around, I don’t really need to worry. Censorship will survive.
One of these days I really want to do a post on the brief history of blogging. Those who didn’t blog when blogging was a novelty missed out on a lot of class and intelligence and brilliant writing, and a whole lot of fun. (Disclaimer – Please don’t sue me, I don’t mean blogs these days don’t spell class, intelligence, brilliant writing, and fun – I have 79 odd subscriptions on my reader). Just that in the era of blogging 1.0, I hadn’t come across any unreadable blogs/ weird bloggers, I do now.) Until then, bear with posts that don’t need much thought. And of course, the “questionable content”. LOL!
