This is not my real name, obviously. I've been using computers and social media since the 80s and 90s with a $1,300 Mac 20MB SCSI at 2MB/s and 486DX33 running my warez BBS with Fidonet. Also studied Novell Netware after hacking the high school network and becoming the lab assistant. I was on fraudbook and left along with a lot of my friends when it turned into an open sewer in 2006. Too many gullible morons, family, children, porn spam, spam, scams, and fake accounts to fucking mess with. We all knew it would turn into a shit hole when it stopped being restricted to college students and alumni. For instance, there were restricted college networks which required your .edu email to join and you had verification on your profile. The asshat zuck deleted them along with the discussion groups, events, and marketplace, and now allows any melon farmer to put any college on their profile. One of my female friends even did it with Michigan State. Fucking idiots putting schools on their profile they never attended and think someone like me is dumb enough to not know how to verify. It's disgusting and I don't have time for childish bullshit on social media. I already had 2 fake accounts from my university and the rival try to friend me and had to delete them from the site.

enter image description here

fraudbook is myspace 2.0, only 1000x worse. Business Pages that do not require a business license or tax ID for verification. Public figure Pages used by people who are not public figures. Fake university and celebrity Pages. Pages for fictional characters? WTF. That's just hiding behind a fake profile to spam and harass and are impossible to report as fake because they disabled that shit. Pages in general are stupid, and every goddamn body on the site needs to provide government ID numbers to prove name, age, and address to comply with their fucking rules of using REAL names and ban anyone below 18 years old. And if I'm not mistaken, it is illegal to use fake names on social media, so they are violating federal law and should be sued. They also run a scam where they hide your comments and restrict your posts from your Pages unless you pay to "boost" them, and when you do they add fake profiles to your your Page. Look up facebook fraud on youtube by Veritasium.

I joined just to answer 1 question and have left already because I'm not fucking around with the stupid points system on this forum. I never had restrictions or ratio enforcements on my BBS, and I don't play that game anywhere. And I don't like people having the ability to edit my fucking posts.
