"If you don't do what I say you will be REMOVED!"

So yesterday I lost an internet friend I have had for YEARS... I think I "met" him like 7 years ago...
ANYWAY, on Facebook I saw he had posted a petition about some Texas politician trying to outlaw pit bulls from the state or something like that. He wanted ALL of his "friends" on Facebook to sign the petition or otherwise he was going to delete them as friends. Yes, he did say this, and yes I went "PSH!"

I replied to his post telling him that no, I was not going to sign any petition. I stated my reasons why (some of which being that people for the most part (notice I did not say ALL) are not responsible pit owners, a friend of mine's son was attacked by the FAMILY bit bull, and when I would go to the Humane Society in Colorado Springs I would see that around 90% of the dogs there were pit bulls or some mix to include pit.

People are either training their dogs to be that way or it is something genetic in them. Terriers by breed are feisty, energetic dogs who typically have little tolerance for other animals, including other dogs. Their ancestors were bred to hunt and kill vermin. Many continue to project the attitude that they're always eager for a spirited argument. The larger they are (or the larger their mouths), the more dangerous they are!

Anyway... back to my lost friend. He replied back that he was serious about this ("You know me Laura"). And I told him fine, delete me. I am entitled to MY OPINION. I also told him that if he goes about deleting everyone from his life that disagrees with him then he was going to be one lonely person. I said this because a few days previous he had deleted a bunch of people off of his Facebook over a disagreement about World of Warcraft, his inability to reach level 85 FIRST in his guild because of his internet sucking, and blaming it on someone else. This "someone else" replied that it was not her fault, she sees why he has no real life friends because of how he treats people, and he should really not call people fuckers that he does not know (in jest or not) because they will take it wrong. She also told  him that if he had such a problem with them then he should go find another guild. He proceeded to tell her to fuck off, and deleted her.

SO! Yeah, he deleted me too... and I could give a fuck less. I REFUSE to allow someone to try to bully me into something that I do not believe in (and are online petitions REALLY legit when the people signing them are not in said State or even said COUNTRY?). It made me cleaning out my friends list that much easier...

Sometimes that is tough Laura. However, it sounds as though he is a bit of a stresser in your life right now. You don't need that. :)
