Facebook Idiots


If you shoot a dog because it was attacking your poultry and horses, and then runs at you, expect the following things:

1) Your GF (BF, spouse) may be incorrectly identified on facebook as the shooter.

2) Well, no animals were injured, so you shouldn't have shot the dog (the vet prescribed antibiotics for the wound on the mini horse's butt, and guineas seem to do OK with some messed up feathers. We still have to watch for signs of rabies - there is no indication the dog was vaccinated, and it wasn't registered).

3) Expect various facebook threats to the incorrectly identified shooter, veiled and otherwise. We're going to ruin your business, where does she live, I'll mess her up and kill her animals, somebody should kill her, throat punch, etc, etc, etc.

4) Various versions of "you're a horrible person".

So who was doing all this? "Animal lovers". It seems to me they're at best people haters who just jump on the band wagon.

Yesterdfay I was down about having to shoot a dog because the owner just wouldn't keep him under control, but today I've improved to "pissed".

I wouldn't let it bother you too much... People don't generally use FB to "think"... just react...

Don't give 'em what they're looking for as they pretty much won't change... then they'll be the ones "pissed"...

Poetic justice...

Amazing to me. I had someone tell me what a horrible person I was because when my dog was bit by the rattle snake I sat with my gun on my dresser and begged her to not to hurt anymore. How I told her that if she hurt too much, I would do what had to be done and would be the one to do it. I was one of the most heartless people on Earth they said.

Me and that dog have the closest bond ever now, I spent 32 hours straight with her trying to keep her calm so I didn't have to put her down. It worked, but yeah, the person who panics, treats the dog like a human, and is surprised it doesn't act like a human is the one who is sane....

People are stupid. Dogs are animals. The rest of us love our dogs...

I love my dog(s) because they are not blessed with true Human Characteristics. Hell, I'd never chase after a woman because she got out of the fence. And for sure women will never take to 'doing a trick' on demand for a scooby snack.

Re: Facebook Idiots


I had a dog bothering my poultry. Owners would not do anything to keep the dog home and safe. It was a nice dog, but it bothered my birds. So one day while petting the dog I used a spray can of paint and sent the dog home with a red "bulls-eye" painted on its side. It never came back.

I like it when they say, "It's not the dog's fault, why hurt them?" If it were legal I would say shoot the owner!

Re: Facebook Idiots


I thought on FB you had "Friends". If that's the way "Friends" are reacting to your actions. Quit FB! I don't need people like that.
I'm not on FB, so I don't know how it works anymore. When I did have an account, it brought nothing but grief.

Trust me, with something like this, you get a ton of "friend" requests.

It's for her business, so dropping it isn't all that smart, she's just had to put more restrictions on and delete a bunch of stuff.

There have been 3 complaints from us about the dog, the last one (before we got the mini) he was chasing the full size horse.

Re: Facebook Idiots


They don't have to be FB "friends" to be stupid. My stepdaughter told me she has disowned me and her mother because while keeping her dog he bit my grandson not once, not twice but, three times and I refused to babysit her dog any longer. Along with that he killed one of my chickens, puked on my living room carpet and pissed on a rug. I couldn't board him anywhere because she didn't keep his shots up to date. I drove his ass 2 1/2 hours away and dropped him off at her office. I thought I showed extreme restrain not killing his sorry arse.

Q:

1. How do th facebook crack whoors even find people to harass?

2. We kept a FB page for the store. I thought it was a good thing. Post a new store item - it brought people in.

3. I recently signed up to FB to post comments on a joint project I am doing with someone in New Mexico.

And now I've closed the account.

Why? Because every day, 2, 3 times a day, I would get "possible friends" notifications from FB. And they all had names like Lakleesha, la juwanda, jabro Jamal, Shandabanda do ja jamma etc.

WTF!

Ever listen to coyotes at night? Same thing - one finds a prize and they all start howling and snarling.

I use my account about once every 5 years, but only actual friends see it.

Re: Facebook Idiots


Here's something I didn't know, people can set up a facebook page under your business name, and label it as a page for people who are interested in your business. Then they can collect "reviews".

Having people search for the page using google and the "site:facebook.com" option then brings that page up to the top of the (non-ad) results on google search of facebook results.

I only found this out because it had been linked in an on-line "article".

I have new information on this. It was posted to a animal rescue type facebook site. The non-profit is located maybe 20 miles from here in a city. From there, it spread across the country.

Out of the blue, I got some Google+ suggestions like that - they were russkie names.


I deactivated FB. Reactivated a day back because of a builder friend.

Will deactivate again.

It really is no better than high school cafeteria gossip. Nasty side of people at every turn.
