Facebook is like the AOL for the '00s. It's training wheels for folks who haven't figured out how to use the real internet :)

Nick, I was never your friend on Facebook, but apart from three internet celebrities I only have people I have actually met in real life on Facebook.

My three celebrities are muted anyway. I don't care what they have to offer.

Facebook still needs to be able to have different types of profile for the same user though. The PUBLIC profile, the PROFESSIONAL profile, and finally the PERSONAL profile.

You can have your regular profile as your personal profile.
If you want to have a professional profile, you can create a page for yourself.
So Nick Bradbury could have his own Page, and people could become fans of him and his work. That way he doesn't have to have those people as his friends.

I also only use Facebook for my real friends. I do not treat it as MySpace, where people just add anyone and everyone.

Came across this saying a long time ago--don't remember who said it :-)

The internet--where the men are men, the women are men, and the 13-year-old girls are FBI agents.

OT but not sure how else to get your attention. Comments appear to have been dropped from archived posts. For example, the "Everyone Loves Ads in FeedDemon!" post is listed as having 74 comments but only displays around 25 and all are dated the date of the original post i.e. December 13th; any comment after that appears to have been dropped. I know they were there up until a few days ago as one of them was mine!

@Chris: Thanks for bringing this to my attention - I've fixed the problem.

@Nick: Many thanks for the quick fix. One last OT as I am here; the advertising issue aside, would a FeedDemon Wish List topic be a valuable start to the new year? I have a suggestion which IMHO makes an existing facility usable (as opposed to unusable) and one which I would be interested to hear other opinions on not the least yours. I did pass it on in some post installation response (I forget the exact mechanism apart from it being Newsgator instigated) but heard no more.

Thanks again,


@Chris: I just searched the FeedDemon forums for posts by you, but I didn't uncover anything. If you posted it there, did you use a different name? If you didn't post in our forums, that would be the best place for a feature request - just stop by http://forum.newsgator.com/Forum14-1.aspx

@Nick: Thanks for searching the forums but as you discovered, I hadn't posted there (I now recall I used the feedback facility in FeedDemon). Anyway, I have now posted to the forum (see "Is it possible to exclude feeds from the panic button ?" topic). Apologies to everyone for the OT posts!


We all know you just wanted a free Burger King Whopper :)


@Tman: I'm not a big burger fan, but I'd probably trade some Facebook friends for a round of beer and pizza :)

Heh, when I first read the title only I assumed it was still about the advertisement issues :)

Funny, huh?

You must have spent quite a lot of time doing that.

Nick, just wanted to say hi to an old friend. Hope you and your family are doing well.
