Why would anyone ever use any form of social media? Anything you post, like, friend, follow or allow someone else to post on your site will be used against you. Voice an opinion and lose your job, like a post and you can be charged with a hate crime (at least in Germany).
well, in the US, getting charged for a hate crime based on a twitter or facebook post is almost ridiculous unlikely. first amendment protections is a bit different than eu or german free speech protections.
even so, am in agreement 'bout social media, but Gromnir has never quite grasped the window/mirror o' social media. our need for external validation is almost non-existent, and our curiosity 'bout the day-to-day thoughts and doings o' people outside our immediate circle o' friends is negligible.
even so, am conscientious o' the fact that posting as Gromnir has effective killed any chance we will ever be a judge. is not simple 'cause o' the Gromnir persona, but on such boards as these we admitted, more than once, we ain't a fan o' the law of Brown v. Board of Education. the Justices did the right thing, the moral thing, by ending school segregation, but the legal reasoning for the decision were weak and having a Court make law, instead of leaving to democratic process, arguable resulted in a decade o' blood and fire.
no doubt you couldn't care less 'bout our feelings regarding brown v. board, but if we were ever being considered for a place on the bench, somebody would go through our history with gusto looking for any possible references brown v. board or roe v. wade. kinda wacky to think how posts on a game board from as far back as the mid 90s could handicap our career, but am not naive 'bout the reality.
HA! Good Fun!
