New Facebook page for WUWT

After seeing a Steve McIntyre Facebook page created by a well meaning fan, and Steve having no control over it or what was said on it, I decided that I should get my own for WUWT before somebody did something similar.

So here it is.

You can visit, sign up as a friend, whatever. I don’t plan to spend much time on it right now. Please don’t make requests for my time on it, as I’m overwhelmed as it is.

  1. I’m surprised that just anyone is allowed to use another person’s name –and reputation– to make such a page, as such a thing amounts to identity theft, regardless the intentions.
    Intentions –especially the good ones– pave the road to Hades.

  2. That McIntyre Facebook page is defamatory, are there laws against this?
    It entirely misrepresents his position and reflects wrongly on his apologists.

  3. I was trying to add the widget to my facebook page, but they removed the custom scripting. Glad to have you linked in.
    I want to set up a facebook-> myspace->twitter->facebook bot to auto update and watch it melt down.

  4. It’s just another way of reaching people.It would be better if you had given people an idea of what wuwt is about.I have recommended your page to friends,but they will be puzzled if they read your page.You can delete any comments you don’t like,but I suspect fans will carry the can for you.I know you don;t want to bothered,but it may snowball.You really don’t have to do anything.If enough fans post,then the nasty comments will be buried.
    ps
    Nearly 2 million people like Sarah Palin’s page.

  5. Dustin – you are correct, sir! Facebook IS horrible. Every time you do business with evil, a little bit of it rubs off onto you. Most people who argue about this are failing to see the name in front of their face: FACEbook. As in you give them a nice image of your FACE. Then they install scanners darkly about your life, first at the Motor Vehicle Department, then the airport, then later all over the place, and together with all the surveillance cameras already installed they use your face scan biometric information that you GAVE them voluntarily at the DMV, and they track your every movement anywhere. Facebook gives them more images as well as other profile information. You are cattle. You are being farmed like sheep. And you are now walking into the chutes towards an odd-looking building with no windows. DON’T GO IN!!!

  8. FACEBOOK should be renamed WASTEBOOK as this, Twitter and the like are sucking the life out of useful social interaction, all on the premise that they are improving it.
    How many ‘friends’ you have has become a proxy for popularity whilst I doubt that many of the ‘friends’ really cares about the inanities that you are putting up on your page. Put the damn phone down and talk to someone face-to-face.

  9. Why not ask for staff of volounteers to run the site for you? You have plenty of fans with experience and time to do the leg work and it might just be a welcome addition to the WUWT family.
    Showcasing many of the high profile supporters and top stories and maybe the odd poll when the site becomes popular would boost the standing of WUWT immensely IMHO.
    There are still people out there who can be reached and should be reached, its upto people themselves to decide on their stand as individuals but surely there is no harm in reaching out.
    Disclaimer: I of course could well be wrong, it wouldnt be the first time.

  10. heheheheh…..you can run, but you can’t hide!
    What about your myspace account? Or MS’s live spaces? Yes, I know I’m probably putting evil thoughts in people’s minds, but the cabbages will, eventually, think of it anyway. Were I you, I’d try to cover more bases. However, upon reflection it is a futile act at this time. Maybe, one day society will get over this insidious compulsive need for an instantaneous skewed view on reality, but that won’t happen until they are convinced a true view on reality is more enticing.

  11. FB has little value for me other than to say hi to family. Sorry to see that anybody can set up an account like the “fan” of SM.

  12. Please, Please, Please, Don’t make this blog more popular. I’m having a hard time checking out all the comments as it is. 8<[

  13. I’ve joined facebook and twitter for one exact reason. In a book I read about getting your name out for publishing a book it’s a good idea to gather a “following” on fB and twitter.
    It’s about as much of a time waster and brain musher, as going to realclimate or hansen’s blog expecting to find logical comments on global warming.

  14. Antony, why didn’t report that page to Facebook?
    There’s a link on the bottom left of the page, but you have to login to proceed.
    REPLY: I alerted Steve McIntyre first, and the person that set it up, to give them a chance to work it out first. -A

  15. My favorite Facebook word is “Poke”. Everytime I see that word I laugh because it reminds me of an installment of “Lonesome Dove” when Robert Duval asks the girl if she wants a poke. She said no. So I never poke anyone on Facebook.

  16. Forgive me for not signing up – I jumped off Facebook a couple of years ago after becoming completely jaded with everything on it: the endless banal bulletins on what “friends” are currently up to or what their “mood” is; the poking, the myriad childish games and applications, the notification emails in my outlook inbox to tell me someone had left another moronic comment on my “wall” – yawn! When there is so much of interest to be had here on WUWT, and at Steve M’s, and Jo Nova’s (to name but three) – why would I waste another second of my life at that brain draining virtual nutty asylum?

  17. “as I’m overwhelmed as it is …”: just doing us all great service.
    Let’s give him a break for once! TimC
