I crosspost for dogs that need homes and are going to be killed. FB has given nothing but problems to people trying to do some good. With all the smut and garbage they allow, I just don't understand them!

It sounds like Facebook has an Orwellian Ministry of Truth to modify past history to match current propaganda. And we were worried about the NSA.

Is there an Ask Bob Facebook page? I went thru about a gazillion Bob and Robert Rankin pictures before I gave up. The one whose picture looked as tho it might be you who went to RPI had only 92 followers.

I completely agree with your assessment of the deplorable behavior of the geeks on and about facebook.It's always funny to me how the liberals can say anything about normal but God forbid if one exorcises his or right to free speech.I thinf I will terminate my account,I rarely go on it anyway.

Your slur on Greenpeace aside, I agree.
Repugnant as that Kendall Jones specimen is, it is not proper to threaten harm. Publicly, I disapprove.

Thank you Bob for bringing this up and explaining it so clearly. I do look forward to your e-mails. I like to think that I am now 146% smarter although my children still say I'm dumb!

The best thing I can do at this time is to share your revelations! :)

Your estimations of the standards of Facebook (per your newsletter of 7/14) is just about the same as mine. Nonetheless, i find it useful for some kinds of connections I value.
But recently I have begun to make more extensive use of Google+ and find it very helpful in making connections based on similar interests, rather than kitten photos and what I had for breakfast.
I find you a reliable source of information that I often use so I'm curious whether you have a higher opinion of Google+ than you do of Facebook.

I agree with your statement on violence in regards to Kendall Jones. Such a page should not be allowed. As far as Kendal Jones page, it's her page, she isn't harming anyone. If you don't like what the page shows, don't visit! That is the freedom we have and can choose what we want and don't want. Not to be sensored by someone because it doesn't agree with our personal beliefs. Should we take down all religious pages because I don't believe or because it doesn't match my religion? What about sports pages of teams I don't like. The list can go on and on. If you don't like the page, don't visit it!!

Even though I'm on Facebook myself, I'm beginning to realize just how psychologically dangerous it can be. Two words used by Facebook---friends and like---mislead a lot of people into thinking that all those who they've "befriended" are actually their friends. Likewise, some people, especially those with low self esteem, think that when someone "likes" a post of theirs that they're actually liking them. I know this sounds farfetched, but I actually know someone like this. Without strict community standards, Facebook as a public platform can be potentially dangerous. Manipulating people's emotions is no small matter. and should be taken seriously. And the worker termites you mention above most likely are interns---a polite term for free labor, often without strict supervision.

Well said, a voice of reason among the braying idiots who think Facebook is some sort of religion.
You realise don't you Bob, openly criticising or even actually not liking Facebook is akin to treason? Expect a 'kill Bob' page soon!

For the "Kill Kendall Jones" issue, I would not worry too much about it, despicable as it appears, since government enforcement agencies like local police, the FBI, etc., must have been following it all the while. Just let them do their job. A better place to voice your outrage is to inform your congressman or local representatives. There are always crazy people touting death threats. Just like prostitution or smoking m*riju*na, they cannot be eradicated entirely. Best way to deal with them is to catch them in the act.

I have recently closed my Facebook account because of these types of incidents. I really don't need Facebook as much as they need me. Enough said.

In regard to 'The Truth About Community Standard on Facebook'. BRAVO! I like your stance and the fact that you aren't afraid to stand up to the bully on the block. It is nice to have a few places (like yours) where truth means something.

What a great article. Once again, you have accurately pointed out the shameful lack of respect that Facebook shows its users. Well said.

Also, FB is socially aligned with a certain part of the community that has close ties to Washington.

Facebook's Community "Standards" haven't kept my mail-box from being flooded with the rants of right-wing ideologues, ardent enthusiasts of Social Darwinism, the exhortations to xenophobia and the never-ending parade of racist and vile personal attacks on the person re-elected President in 2012. Or the spam that is ever-present.
