No, no, not you my dear... me!
Well perhaps not really as I am pretty sure why there is very little action on this 'forum' that back a few years ago used to have hundreds of members and dozens of active posters. Sure its gone through at least two major revamps and users just fade away but the single biggest hit for folks like myself who refuse to participate in that FaceCrap thing is simply that. I understand the desire to 'communicate' with fellow human beings by any means possible, it after all what actually makes us 'human', but I am not at all sure that the current means of communications is doing much to help the human condition but perhaps does more to isolate us in our own little bubble.
Just to be clear I am no better than most in personal interaction, if you can picture an old fart sitting in his chair wondering who to bug next on line (mostly by email) you get the picture. If it were not for my desire to retain my privacy as much as possible (and in these days if you do ANYTHING on line it is debatable) I would possibly be putting myself out there on 'social media', but to what end... such places are increasing being revealed as highly intrusive and insecure ... no thanks!
Our friend whose nom de plume appears at the top has demonstrated in the past her impressive skills in 'mining' internet data and I am sure she could drive right in my lane way with barely a detour if need be (when can I expect you dear?) such is the power and the danger of the 'net'. Bottom line I am going to keep dropping a few words in here as and when the I feel like it and hope that those of you who are more 'into' that facecrap thing revert back to the dark ages of 'forums' and fill in a few blanks here once in a while...........
