What's so Social About Social Media?

Facebook creates mental illness that thugs proliferate and thrive on
Editor

 

ne of The Voice's regular contributors, is 95-year-old Myrtle Macdonald, an intellect with an masters degree, who's helped people her entire life.

 

Even at her age, her mind is as clear and sharp as ever. Last month she was even busy editing her book.

 

Earlier this week, she told me that she engaged some people in in a Facebook conversation and questioned the character of some of these so-called activists in the community. Instead of chatting with her in a respectable manner, they told her she was "off her meds" among other things.

 

It was disturbing to her and she was very upset about it.

 

It's not often that I bitch about anything, because at my age, every day's a blessing. But being told she was off her meds was disconcerting to me and I mentioned to her that it was best to just to use the ignore on them—the anti-social misfits whose names I won't mention at this time, but they know who they are.

 

Most of us will agree that there an abundance of empty-headed imbeciles on Facebook who've spawned mental illness with the help of that venue. They hide anonymously behind screen names and troll, typing whatever they want without repercussion and the only time this type of garbage will stop, is when Facebook requires users to have their contact information posted and accessible.

 

I was told that there were a gang of thugs out to "blackball" me and The Valley Voice. Believe me they tried. According to the nice people who informed me that they unwillingly had to dip their toes into these misfits' social circles in order to find out what's going on.

 

It's because of this, and a barrage of anonymous attacks, that I decided to drop social media. It hasn't affected traffic to the website one iota. In fact, traffic to the website has increased. Go figure. As it turns out it was the best thing I've done since creating The Valley Voice and I'm glad to be out of that cesspool of degenerates where these opinionated sloths can't pollute my train of thought.

 

"I love to speak encouragement to people, it amazes me how little this is done...a reminder to all of us, a few kinds words daily, even to just one person would be a great goal to strive for," said Shannon Ross in one of her emails to The Voice Wednesday.

 

On a slow news day, I'm going to inform Voice readers what happens when Facebook thugs get your home address and who they are from a first-person POV. It involves having my door almost kicked off it's hinges at 11pm. There were other instances of harassment by online misfits let loose in the real world.
 

It doesn't matter what's typed online to me, but when I'm getting my door kicked off it's hinges, it's time to bail. Now, I'm being held hostage by doe-eyed thugs and criminals I've photographed over the years, whereby if they don't like something I write, or a photo I've taken, then they have my addy, and can continue to kick my door off it's hinges. It's all because one person with a big mouth has compromised my security in a place I've lived peacefully at for over 20 years.

 

Now, to feel safe, I have to move. Thank you very much.

 

Screenshot that.

 

If you want my address, write me and explain why you want it and I'd be happy to give it to you.

 

Online abuse can come from people at any age. It just so happens this is a 95-year-old spiritual lady they're targeting.

 

What Chilliwack needs is more people like Myrtle and fewer Facebook hoodies.

 

Watch for my commentary at some time in the future and I'll make some points. I'm going to tell you how they got my address and why they wanted it.

 

In the meantime, many social media users need to button it, grab some brains, stop typing like 3-year-olds and leave dear Myrtle alone. 

 

Assholes.
