There are so many things that each of us think about everyday, sometimes we write about them. Most of the time we do not. Maybe that is good, we control our mouths and fingers, yet so many stories go untold because of it.

People deal with issues each day. Some we understand, like sickness and health. Others we are not sure what to do about, like the poor. How poor is poor? A child living on the street that eats every few days. . . is that considered poor? Or how about the pastor of a mega church that needs 65 million dollars for a new jet. . . is that poor?

I looked over several of my websites lately. I looked at what I wrote, and what people replied. Now I come away devastated, because in just about each post, the people had no idea what I was saying, or trying to get across. That means, either I am one of the worst writers around, or people are ignoring the obvious.

Today I wanted to write about Facebook. I wanted to tell you what happened to me, and why I no longer have a page(s) there. Yes I had a few pages there. Some about my books, one called Mighty Boys which was a good news page about the things young boys and men to to change the world. I also had my main page which talked about politics and religion, and trying to share a path of what was right for the majority of people in the world instead of a select few.

Even that was misconstrued, albeit on purpose by religious fanatics, gun fanatics and others. Yet I was turned in for it. It is okay all of my readers know I do not talk hate or vengeance. Which was Facebook’s reason for taking my page down.

Then over the last few weeks I began thinking about that. I was really upset at first, and willing to do anything I could to get my page back. As time went on however, I had some different feelings.

Hate. Even though I never broadcasted hate, thousands of others do. Their pages are still up. From hate filled politicians and ministers, to NRA gun freaks. The hate was endless. Even the politics was getting out of hand. It is bad enough, Trump for instance, makes a fool of himself. There was no reason for others to call him names on top of it. Just post what he said and leave it be.

Oh there were a few good things on Facebook, but one good thing for every thousand bad things.

So I have decided not to go back to Facebook. It is not worth my time. Yes I have a few real friends there. People I care about, but they can talk to me here, on teamspeak3, and in email. I do not need the grief of Facebook, and if that is what it takes to be friends, then I don’t need friends I guess.

No one seems to understand what my posts are about anyway.

12 Thoughts on “Facebook and Uranus

  1. I refuse to go onto facebook for a variety of reasons, but just hearing about peoples various experiences with it, leads me to believe you have made a good decision by leaving.
    And just so you know I fully understand your stories on here. It’s listening to you for real that confuses me!

    I am sorry to hear that you will no longer be on FaceBook. I don’t know what their reason was for taking your page off, but it must have been a really immature person who complained. If I am able to get TeamSpeak 3 figured out I will talk to you there, otherwise, I will e-mail you. Stay sweet, Rems!

      Getting to Paul’s Teamspeak room is not rocket science. You install it, put in the numbers I gave you, the password I gave you, the room name (Paul’s Room) and the user name you want to use. Then Connect. Once there you bookmark the room so you can get back. Young people and OLD people find it the easiest. I know you fit into one of those categories, and ask Wayne for help!

    This makes me very sad. I will miss your presence on Facebook and I’ll miss our chats. You do know that you can block people on FB, right? You could stay and just interact with your friends there.

  4. This makes me very sad, Remmy. You’re a wonderful person and set a fine example for youth today. I will miss you, but I do follow your blog. You’re stuck with me. Your friend always, Cody

    I shall miss you terribly. I respect that you want to spend your time in better ways. But you have been missed these last weeks. *wails*

  6. Sad news indeed… Even being friends for a short time on facebook, you’ll be missed…

  7. Well … not happy with this … but understand your decision. I enjoy connecting with our community of reasonable & supporting peeps. I block the bad & the politics I don’t want to read about & keep my close friends only locked down. I will miss you! Will try to check in weekly … so no pressure … hee hee Love from Alaska

      I did not have a chance to block anyone. The attack on me was premeditated and devastating. Sorry I just can’t deal with them.

  8. Aw Remmy. If the good guys leave, who will balance the evil? FaceBook is doing a terrible job of policing it’s pages. I am waiting for the next great social media website. I will follow you here so I can stay with you. I so appreciate positive attitudes.
