Subject: RE: BS: A solution to Fakebook
No problem Dave, sometimes I forget that things Iím smiling at as I type donít necessarily come over as the Ďgentle jokeí I intend them to be.

On your last point, Iím not actually Ďblamingí FB - I completely blame the bastards who mis-use those photos - but, knowing that they can be mis-used, Iím astonished that people continue to take that risk. Iíve never posted any photos of my own offspring as children, and never will. Iíd strongly advise others to do the same - fore-warned is fore-armed.

And itís not just paedophiles - just check out the photos of children that have been photoshopped to look as though they are deformed, or have missing limbs, which are then used by unscrupulous ĎLike-Farmingí pages. You know the kind of thing - ďPeople are ashamed of my disease - I bet I wonít get any LikesĒ, yadda yadda.

But if people want to take the risk that their kidís pic will be hi-jacked and used that way, itís their choice. Definitely not for me though.
