Me: I'm not a hugger, plus a year of social distancing has made me even more wary about social contact. Please don't hug me when this is over.

Facebook crowd: Tough dude, we've missed hugs. Gonna hug you even harder now. Too bad, nothings going to stop me hugging you.

Me: I'm being serious guys, please respect my boundaries. You're making it so I don't want to see you after this is over

Facebook crowd: Haha! We know where you live, you're not getting away that easily! One extra big hug coming up

I mean seriously, replace "hug" with "strawberry float" and see how creepy they all sound. But apparently consent and bodily autonomy don't count when you've missed hugs :roll:


Sounds like someone needs a hug :wub:

:lol:

I do sympathise, but isn't that just your friends teasing you? Probably best to laugh it off for now. I'm sure they won't hug you if you ask them not to IRL.

Although why UK viewers are being included I don't know. I guess Youtube implemented it before we left the EU, so we're stuck with it too? At least for a while.

Because the fact you need to be 18 to purchase an ISP in the first place, and parental controls then being turned on as standard when you first sign-up, isn't enough!

And yet the biggest issue of the day - anonymous social media accounts spewing all sorts of shite - continues without issue.

I definitely won't feel comfortable getting close to people after this (I barely did before) so I'm also really not looking forward to excited people trying to get close to me. Unless I really, really like them.

Reality is, no one will want to get close to me anyway and then I'll feel sad about that instead :lol:

Why stop there? Replace 'hug' with 'kill you while you sleep' and see how murderous they all sound!

They have done in the past, even when I lock up and freeze, no reason to think they won't again.

Stop caring about the clowns on social media.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Yes, a problem that truly dwarfs all others.

Why in strawberry float do social media sites think we want to see what everyone's doing in anything other than chronological order?

I adopted a different app for FB a while ago and I'm happy with it. Try Maki Plus.

That little light switch thing that websites now use instead of a simple "Yes/No" tick box. I first saw it on cookie settings but now it seems to be everywhere.

You can guarantee that whichever option I pick first will be the wrong one as I'm always unsure whether the switch should be on the left or right depending on my answer. I swear it's different on different websites too so I'm always second guessing it.

It's like when you're sure you're holding the USB cable the correct way around and then you've still got it wrong.
