I was having a Facebook addiction that I wanted to tame, then this current popular beloved-by-many war starts up. My friends turn into 24-hour compulsive clickmonkeys of propaganda, mostly NPR, CNN, and a few others. My timeline filled up with it.
It maxed me out mentally, plus I wanted to walk away from years of my embarrassing profile on Facebook, so I did the delete procedure. It takes Facebook 30 days to “start” (per them) the deletion process.
I wait five weeks and decide I would like to go back with a limited low-key snooper profile to keep an eye on a few things. It’s impossible. Trying to vary the registration information after the first two tries failed didn’t work. FB picks up on it and blocks me. My latest attempt worked for days before getting the block message.
Either it is prohibited to ever return with a new profile, or somebody is reporting me for something bogus. FB’s review team is so low quality that blocks rarely get overturned for any reason. I’ll see.
Anyway, I guess I can never go back. That’s OK. I can find other things to do. I’ll miss some of the locals.

I took five weeks off from Facebook and came back with a new profile to leave a lot of my history behind.
As I add some old friends back, my timeline has heavily filled up with posts 100% in line with the US government with compulsive repetition of The Hill, NPR, CNN, etc. Such warmongers, all of them, just loving it.
I’ll keep everybody as friends but will unfollow the posts so I don’t have to look at them.
I’m not going to completely leave Facebook. I want to keep an eye on a few things.
For the second time in a week, I’m blocked from my account. FB doesn’t like what I post, and all I post is garbage. Freakin’ kindergarten. The prohibited words seem to be “Russia” (last week) and “sodomy” (today).
I wish they’d save me the trouble and just delete my account. It would improve my life.
For the second time in two months I have scrubbed my Facebook wall. It’s in case I lose my GD mind over world gone mad. I’m ok on other networks, but FB feed triggers me. Twitter, WordPress, MeWe, VK don’t bother me. Who knows.
Still deciding where to go with G+ closing next year. I was a long-term fan of the My Opera Community. It closed years ago, so I primarily went to Google Plus. Now it’s going away. Facebook makes me too sad. I recently deleted all my posts and just sometimes lurk now.
