Adding Friends And Losing Sanity at Facebook

image courtesy net

adding friends and losing sanity
at facebook
no more friends a new path i took
playing by the book
no fresh broth to cook
my garden is green
the other side of the garden
i need not look
no more adding
bandra gangsters and crooks
who end up hanging
me on butcher hooks
searching for a needle in a haystack
finding it in a nook
my karma my fucked destiny mistook
the wheels of dharma
my shelf life overtook

The Danger of Adding Friends on Facebook- Part 2

I recieved this message as timely response from Facebook - against the threat I got from a Facebook member who had added me as friend and than showed his true colors by his vile comments in a message to me ..I will not name him simply because he would hurt his parent more than he has hurt me..

Excerpts of his message to me that as part of my cyber police complain..

2>u said im nt ur fuckin father..if u a real good father..u wuld hve nt abused me..i can nw see what kind of father r u..usless n mentally retarded..
3>u said i hve no right to pass a public comment on ur post..u forgot that u r on facebook n nt using ur own private website..i have a authority n will to comment on whos evr profile i want..its nt by me bt from da website "FACEBOOK" facebook orders me to do so u dickhead..
4>u said it was nt written 4 i was in ur frnds list the mesg n ur status was shown on my wall 2..u dint specifiy ne name r creature on ur i have a right to write nething on ur posts asshole..
5>n u asshole if u want i can file a case against u n land u in lock up r get ur ass spanked with guys 4 ur posts on religion bais...u still hve no idea who m i...u really messsd it with a wrong person..
6>my comment dint point u as framing u...indeed i asked u whthr what it means in ur fuckin motherfuckd tongue..
7>if nw u can help ur self then face the cops r my guys soon...wait n watch what i do nw

I had blocked him but sent him a message as he had twisted the gist of my hijra link giving it a religious bias where none existed..

My Reply to Facebook

Thank you for your kindly response this person is a menace and a danger, I have nothing personal against him, I follow terms of service and guidelines as set by Facebook, I am not a member of any group, I stay to myself, so when an incident like this happens iot shatters my faith and my belief of peaceful coexistence at Facebook..

You keep prompting and adding suggestions about adding a friend do you know the madness and folly if another 100 guys begin behaving like him, you will have anarchy at hand, imagine if this was meted out to a girl, this person has lost his balance and should be expelled from Facebook,,I leave to your discretion , I told the Mumbai cyber Police to pursue this case as it sheds bad light on all Indians including 26/11 .

I have spoken to my lawyers and am taking a serous view of this..I have not mentioned his name on my Flickr blog , out of respect for Facebook..

He stays in my area I presume and will be a security risk to me and my family , you sitting in America will not realize this I am not trying to make a mountain out of a molehill..

Facebook is a place to relax , catch up with old friends not a place to vilify or hatch plots to harm someone if his views dont agree with yours..

He writes Facebook has given him the permission to comment on my links , he is childish and very dumb and people under 18 should not be adding older people as friends I think it is time you reviewed your membership guidelines for the future..

I have removed people whom I dont know from my friends list and will not be adding anyone unless I am perfectly sure, and I reiterate Flickr has a far more fluid and safer method of adding friend as compared to Facebook., much better transparency and control..

Please consider this as a feedback of a Facebook user for better and cordial relationships between members at Facebook.

As Ever
