Missed my point. You are "avoiding anyone that posts on Facebook"... I am saying you already hang out with people that post on Facebook. Maybe even live with someone.

I don't know where you got that quote. I didn't state that. I said I'm staying away from people who post on FB. It is similar to what you said but I just want to be sure you're not getting my posts mixed up with something else.

Right. I do hang out with people who post on FB. But I have taken the time to try and find out if they are posting about others. If so I stay away from them as much as possible. I don't want to be involved with that kind of behavior.

The point is I don't want to be involved with creepy people doing creepy things. Stalking others on FB is one of the things I don't want involved with either directly or indirectly. That doesn't imply that everyone on FB is creepy or that everyone on FB is stalking people.

McAfee was commenting on this stuff in an interview. It is an invasion of privacy.

I agree with the gist of your comments but most people don't see it.

You are completely paranoid.
Please explain to me how anyone that takes your picture... from that alone... is going to do all those other things you talked about. It's painfully obvious you flat out do not understand the technology.

Rich, yes I was referring to that quote.

- You are "avoiding anyone that posts on Facebook"
- I said I'm staying away from people who post on FB

Is there a difference here?
You are also paranoid. Trust me, Rich, no one is posting about you on Facebook.
Well... maybe...
"My Uncle Rich is so paranoid about Facebook..."

But you didn't quote me you made that sentence up.

I'm not paranoid. I've done my research I know what people do. I just don't want to be involved with such behavior.

You should look at this as a good thing. It's not about what they post. It's about who is doing the posting.

If you think I can take your picture "with Facebook" and from that... only that... I can find out everything about you: you do not understand Facebook.

You mean no one "liked" your post about it? That's a shame.
