    I don't get why people hate on Facebook.  I mean, I don't enjoy using it so I rarely log on, but if people do enjoy it?  Good for them.  And if they don't want to have an account there?  OK, that's a perfectly reasonable choice too.

    The anti-Facebook thing here is kind of nuts at times.  And there are a lot of good reasons to criticize Facebook, particularly regarding privacy issues and its loose adherence to its Terms of Use.  But this isn't a diary about privacy issues - it's a diary about how rumors spread, and rumors have been spreading ever since cavemen beat each other over the head with rocks because they were wrongly told that someone was stealing their raw squirrel meat.

    "The first drawback of anger is that it destroys your inner peace; the second is that it distorts your view of reality. If you come to understand that anger is really unhelpful, you can begin to distance yourself from anger." - The Dalai Lama
