One of my grade school friends, who I haven't talked to in 35 years...

    found me on Facebook.

    OK, so I accepted his friend request. We weren't super-great friends, just two kids who happened to be in the same grade. In fact we weren't really very good friends at all. But what the hell, why not.

    So now I get continual updates from his Facebook wall.

    About half of them are borderline suggestive/ bikini pics of a teenage girl with his fratboy-style comments ("shake what ya got, hot stuff," "bounce 'em for me, baby")

    Ewwwww .... but wait for it....

    It's his daughter.

    I mean, what the fuck? :eek:

    Holy. Shit.

    That might be worthy of a defriend.

    Unless she's hot. Apparently he's offering her up?

    Mouse up to the top right corner of one of his posts and "hide" will appear. Just click on it, it will ask if you want to "Hide ____" and just click on that button. He's still your friend, but you won't see his updates anymore.

    Yeah, I knew that, but about once a month he posts something of legitimate interest.

    It's not like these posts/pics are actually pornographic, they just kind of tiptoe right up to the line.

    And, ewwww.

    "Bounce 'em for me, baby"?

    That's really, really disturbing.

    A bunch of people from my elementary school are planning a similar reunion. We left sixth grade in 1972. There are a couple of people I was good friends with and just lost track of and others who are seemingly better friends on Facebook now than they were when we were classmates.

    I'm going to go. It's about two hours from where I live now and close to where my family stills lives, so why not?

    This is the part of Facebook that creeps me out. There's one person from my graduating class who continually looks for new additions and friends them. I barely remember this girl, and ignored the request five times before giving in, accepting, and hitting hide.

    I do love the hide feature. It's handy for those who insist on updating 17 times a day with banal shit. Or for those who just annoy me in real life.

    A hardcore political wingnut who I barely know from my time running the college newspaper tries to add me. I blocked him about three years ago, but at some point, he had to get another name, and he tried to add me again - blocked. I thought it was done, but NO - I had to block him a third time! Good lord. He's not even mass spamming everyone; his total number of friends is pretty low. He is specifically trying to add me each time.
