I remain, yours sincerely

Rob Hoffman says he’s not giving up on social media just yet:

For now though I am staying put. This means that I have to put up with people’s political postings, rants, and sometimes absurd observations. For the most part, I am capable of scrolling past most of this tripe, and continue on my merry way. Sometimes though, and I always kick myself when I do this, I will be drawn in to a debate, and I have always without exception regretted it. I believe that at some time in the not too distant future, the very definition of the word stupid will be adjusted to mean, “Those who believe they can post something on social media and actually change somebody‚Äôs mind.” No matter how logical I believe my point to be, or no matter how racist and narrow-minded another individual or “virtual friend’s” post obviously appears to be, my argument always falls upon the deaf ears of those who simply don’t see the world the way I do … the poor devils.

And, well, there’s always your friend Tom:

You know, not for nothing, but there’s not a single bot on Myspace. Who would have thought that 2005 represented the good old days?

I mention purely in passing that 2005 was this site’s peak traffic year.
