Subject: RE: BS: A solution to Fakebook
No problem Dave, sometimes I forget that things I’m smiling at as I type don’t necessarily come over as the ‘gentle joke’ I intend them to be.

On your last point, I’m not actually ‘blaming’ FB - I completely blame the bastards who mis-use those photos - but, knowing that they can be mis-used, I’m astonished that people continue to take that risk. I’ve never posted any photos of my own offspring as children, and never will. I’d strongly advise others to do the same - fore-warned is fore-armed.

And it’s not just paedophiles - just check out the photos of children that have been photoshopped to look as though they are deformed, or have missing limbs, which are then used by unscrupulous ‘Like-Farming’ pages. You know the kind of thing - “People are ashamed of my disease - I bet I won’t get any Likes”, yadda yadda.

But if people want to take the risk that their kid’s pic will be hi-jacked and used that way, it’s their choice. Definitely not for me though.
