    Default Vent - Why do people feel the need to start c.rap pn facebook?

    Who needs enemies when you have "relatives" like mine? Why do people seriously feel the need to start things on Facebook? I mean really, who are they trying to impress? Name calling, swearing, and all those other goodies!

    One person picks a fight (40 year old woman) and then sends in her teenage daughter to "threaten" me and tell me I have NO idea who I am talking to? Yup, pretty sure I'm talking to a spoiled brat who has never had her butt whipped by her equally spoiled mother.

    Some people should have been swallowed!

    Ugh! /end rant
    I walk into the barn and hear her soothing nicker, feel her soft muzzle against my cheek, her warm breath on my skin, and it is at that moment I realize there is no where else I would rather be.

    De-friend them. Simple.

    I'm not even friends with them on Facebook. Most of it is on someone else's wall. I mean, when your 40, the last thing you should be doing is talking junk to someone half your age. Then you send in the Calvary? I was cussed at extensively and I never even said one back to them.

    My main reason for getting Facebook was to find my siblings whom I hadn't seen since I was 6 months old. Found them after a 6 year search, so I use it to keep in contact with them and my other close relatives and friends whom have moved away.

    Family member dies, I ask why no-one called her sister (my mom) and then the insults start hurling at me and I can barely miss them.

    Seriously think some people should have been swallowed.

    Always take the high road and don't sink to their level. There will always be a neverending supply of stupid, ignorant people it's up to you to take charge even if that means ignoring their behavior. YOU have the choice.

    I use Facebook to see how old friends are doing. I won't rant or do anything negative on there. ... It could come back to bite one in the ass. Just don't go looking for trouble.. Why even bother reading someone's wall unless you are actually friends with them. As someone else said...take the high road and hit delete/walk away

    I posted the initial question on my cousins wall ... Three weeks ago. It's like they were having a slow night and decided to start stuff. I just don't get it.

    OP isn't that what the internet is all about?

    People think nobody can see them, so they can voice nasty opinions.

    I hate this.

    you're not alone.
    My brother is one that should have gone that route.
    actually blocked him on FB although I know he still posts nasty things about me and about my parents.
    I just figure anyone that knows our family knows he's full of it.
    Unfortunately there are loads people has on his list that don't have the mental capacity to see that he is the very definition of psychopath.
    Oh well.. those people opinions don't matter anyway.

    You should friend 100 of your best coth frieds and let us "go trainwreck" on their pages. It would be funny because they would have no clue who we all were! (only kidding, but fun to think about)

    Sorry they're so nasty.

    You can block them even if they're not on your friend list. Just go to their profile, click on the * that's next to MESSAGE on the right side and follow the prompts on the drop-down menu. Buh-bye!

    Went and blocked them all this morning. Ugh. Now, I'm waiting for messages from their "friends"...

    Good for you! If their troops come after you, report them to FB as harassing posts. They may get a time-out from FB.

    Print all their crap out so you have evidence when the time comes that they deny ever posting any of that.

    Refusing to engage would be a better plan and printing out emails suggests future willingness to engage...
