I've unsubscribed from someone because they kept posting links to Alex Jones videos.

But did not defriend

Though it was more over her being a goddamned drating hippie ass piece of poo.

I think I have more people unsubscribed than subscribed on my facebook.

But its not because they post things like that, its because I just dont care enough about them to want to see their posts every day

I've never had to.

Never have.

I find myself more likely to remove friends for crank stuff. One recent one (who sells Zija) basically called people who get the shingles vaccine "lazy" for putting "toxins" into their bodies.

No, I have people who disagree with me on tons of stuff (usually religion and politics), but I've never de-friended them because they're nice people in general.

I did have one girl de-friend me, though. She was complaining (vehemently) about a high school in our county allowing a boy to run for Prom Queen (he won). Blah blah, stuff about the liberal agenda in public schools and how she was happy she homeschooled her kids because at least "they were protected from THOSE people."

I guess she didn't appreciate me asking why, if she was already homeschooling, why did she give a crap about what the public school was doing? And also pointing out that eventually her kids will be out in the big wide world and having to deal with "those people."

I was surprised she did it because I wasn't nasty about it. But w/e.

No. I guess that my friends are more mature than some.

I dont have people on my facebook who I dont like. But once or twice Ive deleted a person for just uncalled for comments.

No I don't think so.
5 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/3/15 - 12:51:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I deactivated

Not for bigoted comments, but one guy who WAS my friend was being the most obnoxious donkey in the entire universe. He makes Y&R's Victor Newmann look like a peach compared to my former friend. I've also done the pre-emptive block on a few people just so they never find me.

I've muted two feeds. The political nastiness gets to be tiring and childish. Aside from that I just don't want to fuel rampant misinformation or ignorance on my timeline. I respect their opinions but I don't necessarily want to promote their agendas.

My mom does that poo all the time

I haven't come across any bigoted comments, actually. I don't actually have a lot of my 'friends' on my timeline anyway. I have come across people that just praise their mom in every post (hidden), tell men that they must be good husbands in every post (hidden), tell me how heartbroken they are in quotes from The Notebook (hidden), and so on.

I wouldn't have blocked them, myself, because I prefer debate, but my mother demanded I not argue with my racist family members, so I blocked them to appease her.

i like to know what bigoted things people i know think.
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/29/15 - 1:40:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
i've had to hide relatives' posts from time to time, but nothing too serious.

I've unfollowed friends that post sh*t from Britain First / EDL / other racist nonsense groups.
