I see that the BBC's chief political editor, that Laura Kuenssberg, has
been assigned a body guard for her time at the Labour Conference after
threats from left wing thugs and trolls.
Says it all, really.
New Socialism consists essentially in being seen to have your heart in
the right place whilst your head is in the clouds and your hand is in
I don't. I prefer facebook mainly because you can just
browse over the stuff some of your friends choose to
post with the more important stuff they do like moving,
new kids, grandkids etc. Corse only a subset of my friends
do that and I don't actually do it myself, but its useful with
the ones that do.

Yeah, some people I know well I communicate with entirely by
email or imessage and others entirely by facebook or messenger.
Urk, I only have 19 and deliberately avoid friending
friends of friends so my feed doesn’t get cluttered
with stuff about people I don’t know personally.
None of mine post much of that stuff. Mostly the more important
stuff like one who has just had to dig up the entire backyard when
the sewer ended up dumping in the inground pool and it turned
out to be a blockage in the main sewer down the road after all.
Or with one who has just been off on an exchange
trip for a year etc mostly to scandinavia.
Mine use messenger in facebook for that stuff.
Some others do it exclusively by email.

So he's not entirly sure as yet to a solution.
I don’t know anyone like that personally,
let alone have one as a friend.
Yeah, my visits are usually shorter than that and I personally
admin a group with me as the only admin, so I have to approve
or decline people who want to join and normally get a few every
day. And delete the off topic spam that gets posted, tho that’s
much less common, usually only one a month or so.
Yeah, almost all do post about stuff like that.
Yeah, about half of the support stuff like that comes via FB.
