I deleted over 100 people this past fall from my FB and these were friends, people I went to school with. I'm not a "friend collector" on there so that was pretty tough cutting ties with so many people but they had just gotten on my last nerve. It's a preachy lot and they would get offended by comments such as LMBO or OMG. I'm going to be myself on my own posts and my parents are my friends, I do use the occasional REAL bad words and you know if my parents don't mind (and they are serious Christian people) then the rest of those preachy, pretentious jackals can kiss my hams.
I still have preachy people on my list, they post bible verses two and three times a day but I don't say anything to them (agree or disagree). I'm not anti anyone's belief system. If it works for you and makes you feel good then that's great. I have my beliefs and even if they are the same I don't post them. I just don't talk politics and religion.
What I am is pro-literacy. I want to spark at least one person's curiosity into picking up a book. I don't care if it's a King book or not, but it would be exciting to see someone on my friend list talk about a book they are reading instead of a game they are playing on their kid's Wii.
I'm no genius, not a great speller (I use spellcheck all the time and it lets me down), my grammar sucks, and I talk like a hick because I am one... BUT... I know the difference between: to, two and too; there and their; here and hear; you're and your.
Reading is a great thing and I wish instead of beating me up and wanting to burn me at the stake for what I'm reading that some of the morons would pick up a book and try to read. Maybe they'll read a book on how to burn a witch?
