25 Things I Just Don’t Give a Crap About

1-25) Your “deep,” “poetic,” “revealing,” “vulnerable,” smarmy, self-important (note the lack of quotations for those last two), “insightful,” “clever” overshares.

I’ve read two articles in the last 20 minutes on this meme (one in the Times and one in Time — much prefer Time’s account) and it appalls me that it is making that much of a splash.  Yes, the Internet brings a whole new level of “we are the world”-ness to all of our lives.  Or just a whole new level of annoyance (this time without the threat of repercussions for non-compliance, a la the chain letters of my youth).

Facebook meme, you are Meccanized.  (Sadly, I know this post is going to mean a lot more tags for me over the next few days … like the time my mass e-mail asking people not to text me on my work phone was met with 15 pointless texts of “hi … whatcha thinkin’?”)

    Thank you for speaking out against this malicious meme. At the risk of offending other Lindsay's who tried to rope me into this nonsense. It's funny that things as stupid as chain letters will continue to pervade every new technology and annoy us.Though – I do now seem to remember you grinding your own gears after chain posting on this very blog! http://meccanized.com/7-things-you-wish-you-did…Shame! SHAAAAAAME!
