    Wow. I’m (almost) speechless.

    It’s probably a good thing I wasn’t there, because I would have turned around and started something (“I’m sorry – I’m having a hard time believing you said what I think you said. Could you repeat your elitist, self-entitled remark?”).

    Yeh, I’m lucky I don’t get my ass kicked more. :)

    I just joined Facebook last month just because my friends had nagged me LONG ENOUGH. Wouldn’t you know it, but I LOVE Facebook. I don’t do any of those applications, like the gardening or the sending people baby bunnies (electronically, of course), but I have gotten back in touch with people I haven’t seen in 20 years, and wow, has it ever been fun!

    Her discomfort with being equalized makes me uncomfortable in a way that I’m not comfortable with either. I’m not sure what that means except that I’m getting off Facebook too. In order to accomodate the discomfort of those who have been equalized around me.

    Hmm, someone’s just a tad elitist.

    I left Facebook and Myspace too, though, but not for the same reason. I just got tired of feeling like I was being judged by people back home.

    I’ve heard the funniest/stupidest things from people in coffee shops and airports. Sometimes just listening can be the most entertaining part of my day.

    i have such a love/hate relationship with these things… i’m “friends” with people who i don’t talk to in real life and i have enough self-esteem issues that i get annoyed when they are updating about trips they took together and didn’t invite me… it’s awful… but at the same time – kind of fun if i can get over my own issues…

    that comment, however… is really strange…

    i think she meant that everyone is assumed to express themselves in the same way- via those app things and what not. maybe not. i personally find facebook really frustrating though.

    She *could* be referring to how your boss or professor might be on Facebook but is the protocol with them the same as with a classmate, friend, colleague? It’s tricky.

    I don’t have the slightest idea what that comment means, and that makes me very, very, happy.
