That's Right, You Heard, Wilma Dislikes FaceBook
I get many requests to become friends with members of FaceBook. I rip these requests up - they are not my friends, my friends know who I am, they have forgiven me often enough. Just occasionally I get letters from free thinkers about FaceBook who don't bleat the same old clichés at me. They could be my friends but never on that shite wipe site...
I’m not on Facebook and don’t want to be. What should I do? Is there something wrong with me?

What is it with people who say “are you on face book?” and then exclaim “REALLY” when I say “no, I’m not on bloody Facebook!”

Dear Nancy and Sid
Let’s face it, 1 in 3 people are on Facebook and it is no coincidence that 1 in 3 people are w*nkers. I think this is known as a direct correlation or some such term. “On Facebook” sounds like they are sitting around with either an illustrated address book or a computer screen jammed up their stupid arses.
Sooner or later, the penny will drop, that Facebook is not a “social network” site but an “advertising medium”. Facebook members are just demographics for advertisers to target. When they do realise that, and the time will come unless the whole world becomes w*nkers, you’ll be able to say “I told you so”.
If you must join a community join Xomba CLICK HERE – at least Xomba shares some of it wealth and doesn’t hide the fact that it supports itself with advertising revenue. Xomba is more international too.

Strange that, isn’t it? People who ask “are you on Facebook” are as annoying as people who say “I told you so”
Update Added 4th November
Wilma Proops has done a U turn and now quite likes Facebook. She is accepting frienship requests and sending out some too. She told me to add this update as she is too busy to attend to it herself.
