I have many, many faults. I know this.
Yesterday I found myself hockey checked off of a social network for a temporary ban. Gasp! Shock! Horror! You might think I did something awful to deserve the "jailing" but it sometimes works in reverse on social networks. When a person outs a wrong or blows the whistle — sometimes THAT PERSON — in this case me gets tossed offline for saying the word.
My theory about this: is that Facebook is so big, so many users, that it's team of eyeballs that look-over-the-things-that-offend-the-people cannot possibly fathom the Things That Offend Each End User Of It's Free Service.
Even when someone like me — gets a thinly veiled threat or not at all veiled — and I re-post it — I get the boot.
Hell, I could not even follow it. All I knew is that someone posted they wanted me in the ground – there was a shovel and salt. AND I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I DID TO DESERVE IT – aside from my last post. Which is my TRUTH. MY. TRUTH.
Soon, there were two dozen angry rabid post weight loss surgery patients, (some that were former members of my group, some that I did not know) jumping on a hate filled thread on Facebook — name-calling and wanting me in a hole, too. Why? I have the thread. It may or may not still be going. I don't know. It is painful to read. I was called a bitch, a victim, and worse.
And for attempting to stand up for myself, I am the one in the Facebook slammah. Facebook's popo clearly can't follow the chain of events and regard my actions as the problem. The persons whom are actually at fault are publicly posting and GLOATING about their success in getting a person bullied offline.
One is accepting cash donations. Why?
So. Here I am. In jail. Eating mush. Getting violated.
Hey, I suppose I shouldn't knock it too hard, it's free delivered food, free clothes, and a place to sleep, with no kids to bother me – and do I have to pay taxes? <g>
Might not be a bad idea. Screw it.
I hope you feel better about yourself today.
- Because inflammation is an underlying factor in so many chronic diseases, the fact that people in their early 20s are already showing signs of inflammation is a warning bell, Copeland adds. Using data from the larger study, his team will scrutinize other measures of adversity, such as the stress hormone cortisol, and epigenetic changes in which environmental factors affect the way genes are activated. The scientists will also look for biomarkers of more positive methods than bullying through which kids can increase their confidence and social standing.
- This is why SO many bullied kids are FAT. STOP IT.
