The Peril of Facebook Likes

Yesterday I lost a longtime friend because I had "liked" a comment on Facebook that the person did not agree with. The fact that I had also "liked" the original post which the person commenting disagreed with, did not help in salvaging the situation.

I was informed that my liking of the egregious comment was such a misdeed that it was the final straw - we have had a rather strained relationship lately - which made it abundantly clear to my former friend that we no longer have anything in common.

Do you wonder what important political, religious, moral or ethical issue was being discussed in the post and in the comments to it that it could lead to such a disastrous result? Well, it was basically a difference of opinion on the culling of friends lists in SecondLife and how to go about doing it.

If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, please inform me and I'll be forever grateful and give you my first born (although, you'll probably not want that).
