Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Scipio Africanus, born in 236 BC. He was an ancient Roman army general. I have not found reliable verification that today is his actual birthday, but hey, anything will do for a celebration!
A coupla years ago I discovered that Facebook had an option whereby you could permit folks to Follow you without Friending you. So I set that option, thinking, hey, anything to spew my blasphemous hogwash to a wider audience.
So about a dozen people Followed me. There's also a page where I can see who Follows me, with links back to their pages.
And so yesterday I discovered one of my Followers has a page that's mostly instructions for building terrorist bombs, and several of my Followers have profile pictures of nine or ten year old girls wearing nothing but their underwear. None of my followers (except the ones I follow back again) are of any importance to me.
So I sez to meself, Hey, Self, I don't need links to this kinda crap! So I disabled my Follower function.
So anybody who wants to see my stuff is just gonna hafta Friend me, and I'll gladly accept any Friend request if I can identify (or if you message me) the interest community you share with me.
But no terrorist bomb-making instructions nor nearly-naked teeny-boppers. I don't need those.
