Maybe just surround it in white like this:

Or maybe black looks better:

I think you should leave the "Understanding through Discussion" part under the gold EvC logo, it looks good and adds a lot.

Now, how am I going to be able to be a dick to people, anonymously, if they know who I am on Facebook?

And how will I keep my real life friends from finding all the politically incorrect crap I spout here?

I'm not sure I'm down with losing my anonymity.

Re: Aliases
So, I talk about stuff here that I never talk to my real life friends about. And I'd bet that some of them would be appalled by the things I've written here - its not that I actually believe them, but I did write them.

On the other side, I don't want someone who hates me on here looking me up on Facebook and finding me in real life.

Thirdly, there's the creep factor... like:

"Hey Matt, I didn't know you played percussion. And your girlfriend it pretty cute, but that green shirt is hideous. When did you go to San Fran? And is that your baby?"

Re: Further Concerns about Facebook Searching
How did Facebook become so popular?

When it first came out it was so much cleaner. It was really pretty basic and didn't have a whole lot going on. There wasn't even a "news feed" on your home page, it was basically just a book of faces.

Gradually, they've added and implemented more and more crap and junk and now its a real turd. Too, with the integration into, well, everything on the web, and how stuff gets automatically shared onto news feeds, its gotten to the point where I find it almost unusable.

Their software is just pathetic, too. All kinds of shit just messes up and doesn't work right. So don't think the fault is lying on your end.

On the other hand, I just ran into a guy that was one of my best friends in grade school. I haven't heard from or seen him in, like, 20 years. I was very interested in seeing where he lives, and what he does, and learning that he is married with 3 boys now. Without Facebook (or something like it), I doubt that would have ever happened.

We're even making plans to meet up over Thanksgiving. I'm really happy about that.

Re: Aliases
I would suggest for you creating an alias on Facebook

That's not gonna happen. As much as I voice my objection to losing anonymity, my extreme case of apathy will end up overpowering.

Personally, I've decided that if people want to dislike me because of my opinions, which have generally been based on research and logical thought, then f*** 'em.

Yeah, but you see, I'll write stuff that isn't even my opinion. Rather than having to explain to people that I don't believe or support some of the stuff I write, I'd rather just avoid the whole thing altogether.

This I can understand as well, we have all pissed someone off on this board at one time or another. However, from most of my experiences on this board, I do not see a lot of hate thrown around even though we quite often disagree.

Lurkers...

I mean, were you here when those hackers followed crashfrog over here from another board and crashed the whole site for a week?

Now, does this mean your scenario isn't possible? No, it does not, I'm just not going to live my life in fear of it.

I wouldn't call it fear so much as a justified wariness.

See, the creep factor doesn't really bother me because I tend to be an open person anyways.

Sure, and I'll send you a friend request on Facebook. Just don't expose me, please.

'Cause I'm purposefully acting as a closed person, and I'd rather have control over who does and does not know who I am.

The "Understanding Through Discussion" portion needs to move..

Ya know, UTD should be, like, our motto. Too often we just try to prove a new poster wrong, without even discussing with them enough to get a good understanding of what they're trying to say.

Maybe if we all aimed for UTD a bit more, the conversations here would be more constructive.

If I PM you a link to my Facebook page, would you send me a friend request?
