    Okay, I dont really like Facebook and I hardly use it. One of the reasons is because I found that so many of my "friends" use it promote or advance political beliefs.

    I always ignored their posts and never commented on them but recenetly I figured if they were going to spew their beliefs then I would comment on their posts.

    Well, it has led to nothing but arguments and LOTS of trouble.

    I have known this one girl for over 20 years and she recently got married. She made a post asking people to contribute money to a certain political candidate. About 5 people commented how they like that politician and how they were going to donate money to him. I simply posted "dislike". She deleted my post. I then wrote "I hope <said candidate> believes in free speech more than you do".

    The next day her husband writes me a nasty message.

    Well, I always hated social media and now I hate it even more. Since I rarely used it it wont be a problem to use it even less.

    My suggestion to everyone out there, dont use Facebook to promote politics.

    I actually fooled around with her once when we were younger. I always wanted to do more but her dad was CRAZY and if he had any suspicion he would have killed me.

    this could be fun...and as entertaining as the threads when someone tries to screw a fellow member out of a B/S/T deal.

    Good call. It does look like he's doing the same.
    What did you think would happen; really?
    It's her wall, what does that have to do with free speech? If someone puts something you don't like on your wall, do you leave it?
    So you're being a dick to some guys wife, and you're surprised you got a nasty letter.

    So to sum up... you've acted childish, got called on it and come on here whining looking for back-up. All because you had to pick on a woman for liking a political candidate other than the one you do? I'm not sure on any distances involved, but I think you got off easy with a letter from the husband, rather than a bloody nose.

    For a Canadian you seem rather angry.
