2000SilverBullet is on a distinguished road

To give a prime example of why I hate Facebook.

I just got an E-mail to add a convicted killer to my list of friends on that fricken site.

Paul Bernardo

.....give me a break

I didn't know they gave convicted murders computers in prison to play with.

1) Have you joined Facebook?

2b) If you have *not* joined Facebook, have you ever been invited to join? Why did you choose not to join?
have never been invited nor would I join if I were. No real interest.

3) How old are you?
mid forties

4) How much privacy do you expect when using Facebook? How much privacy would you like to have?
I expect little true privacy nor do I expect the 'server end' to remain secure very long if it hasn't been hacked already. I think its rather unwise to have Real presnal data online. hence the answer to 2B
edit - google 'facebook hacked' and you will get 753,000 hits. Just to emphasize my point.

5) How do you use the web to keep in touch with your family? If you don't use the web, what do you use?
email and a personal website
edit - oh wait I missed the 'family' part, the above is for close friends. For family I use the phone or go visit.

6) How do you find out about offline organizations and activities?
word of mouth, phonebook, newspapers, flyers, online listings of organization in my area (you know the kind that only list a phone number or somekind of contact info)
