    You say that now, but then they'll go after TSC next.

    I find your lack of faith disturbing.

    Facebook deserves to die, and in order for it to die, everyone willing and able to do so should take every shot at it they can, in any and all forms, until it, being the tumultuous lump upon social sanity that it is, dies an agonizing death and thereby getting humanity that much closer to being cured of its collective sickness.

    TSC, meanwhile, is nothing in the bigger picture. We're so insignificant on the large scale that we could probably willingly harbor child porn and pirated games and nobody would really notice or care if they did notice. We're like a deep hinterland town of the 'net: Do what you want and what the other people here will let you get by with. Nobody else's alleged authority matters, because they don't care about us and we don't care about them.

    Even if this place were filled with the most vile idiots around -- Which I've personally done a big part to ensure hasn't happened, mind. -- there would be 5-30 of those vile idiots at any given time. As compared to Facebook, which has, what, fifty million? Logged in every waking moment?

    Considering Tescia's recent ascension into the top 10, your argument loses some of its strength, but I agree with all of your points moreover, just not the attitude of Tescia never becoming anything significant.

    As of now what you say holds true but I'm hoping it'll be proven false in the future is what I'm saying.

    Eh, it's tricky getting the school involved.

    Guys, at its core, Facebook is a really helpful tool. It was designed for college age students and older, and since I joined about six years ago, I have used it for networking purposes. I don't play games, I don't take IQ tests and post them everywhere, I don't pay to play even more worthless games. But I use it casually, and socially.

    I understand that it has severely diminished in quality since they let high schoolers on, and since middle schoolers, but at its core, it's still useful. I am on the top privacy settings and am only friends with real life friends, so I get to escape any stupid little children.

    But Facebook isn't the problem, and truthfully, it's quite an elitist and isolationist view that it makes people more stupid or whatever weak argument you have. The main problem lies in society, and in parents not teaching their kids how to be good people, and socialization takes place and that idiocy spreads to others whose parents weren't the best. That is the problem, not Facebook or Twitter or MySpace or whatever.
