    That article build a good case for not using this social media stuff. It takes absolutely no thinking to do something stupid.

    Hahaha lots of Wilders don't use any kind of social websites (Including me, i got no Facebook, Twitter, MySpace NOTHIN)

    To be honest i still haven't met someone IRL that doesn't has a Facebook account (Specially young d00ds like me) and now Twitter is gaining popularity here.

    Not only do I not use any social websites, I'm not really sure who Al Gore is. ;)

    It is a good idea, I would allow it right away, but I have no friends, who can read english, so there is no reason for me to join, but I have shared the link nevertheless.

    I have not seen any spam post regarding this in Facebook. Their Facebook page is 24 Hours of Reality. The only way it will get on my Wall is one of my Friends Shares it to my Wall, I will be notified that. Then I will log in and promptly delete it off my Wall. As for News Feeds, again it takes a Friend to Share it. No big deal, I'm not going to "Like" it. I could report it though as spam.

    I do agree that this is just plan silly. Why anyone would do this is beyond me. So far there are 49,375 Attending, 12,656 Maybe Attending and 27,146 Not Attending. All of them are silly including those who clicked No on the 24 Hours of Reality Facebook Event.
