    Scary. But really, its more that murderous psychopaths are dangerous. (cuing captain obvious) It could have been anything that triggered an attack. Facebook just happened to have been the catalyst.

    Yep...I was just thinking, what did nutcases use as an excuse to murder prior to the internet. Socks not matched properly? Toothpaste cap left off?

    Sigh...calling them facebook or myspace or whatever crimes just detracts from the seriousness and obscures the real cause of these crimes--murderous, abusive people.

    !unique.

    This could've easily been MySpace.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    Are you implying that either site has any claim to superior maturity?

Its not the people who use facebook or myspace that are scary...its the scary people who use myspace and facebook...they would be scary anyway...facebook and myspace are just tools.

    wasn't Facebook originally supposed to kind of be a MySpace for grown ups?

    i kinda hate them both to be honest. I've had old friends hunt me down via facebook (and vice-versa) which is nice, but i tell to pls just email me. Who the hell wants yet another place to have to go to check for messages every 5 mins.

    I used to get so much more stuff done - like thinking - before the internet and cable tv

    Write down all of your important info on a sheet of paper. Include names of your friends, where you work, where you went to school, what you do... You know, all the important stuff.

    Then hop in your car, head to the worst part of town, and hand that paper to the shadiest looking person you can find.

    Welcome to myspace/facebook.

    College students, at least. Originally one needed a university email address in order to get an account. Then they free-for-all-ed it.

    Ive worked at some larger business's that there was a 20-something myspacebook culture.
    It appeared very dramatic and soapoperatic. Ive actually seen arguments start over something
    that was posted online. To me, its very strange. But, I have a hard time grasping a lot of post
    80's technology and stuff so it might be a 'me' thing

    I work in libraries and the whole field is vigorously pursuing this to maintain and reclaim relevance as an information resource.

    No, I think you can buy the handle. But there should be a seven day grace period before you get the blade.

    I think a lot of this has to do with a generation of kids growing up watching the Real World, and Survivor, thinking that it's normal to have high amounts of drama and cat-fight-ery in their lives.

    Is it different than MySpace and Facebook ??
    Yeah, even with the Fixie Forum, less emo kids I guess........
    Ive actually met BF'ers in real life. So I can only surmise Im
    just being an angry olde man towards the new stuff that I dont understand.
