As for Facebook and the like, I guess that goes to my desire to not get involved in certain things. I deleted all my social media accounts a few years ago because I didn't need that drama in my life. Maybe when I'm retired or something I'll create an account somewhere, but probably Instagram or something so I can get travel ideas and maybe see pics of family that I don't see in person as often. I even un-bookmarked Off Topic here on Vortex because there was so much vitriol going on in so many threads there. I just want somewhere fun to read about cars and fun stuff. For me, the main forum here at TCL does an OK job of that still.
It's really just the trolls and truly hurtful people that I'm glad to see go. There's a difference between people who may post a specific thing that's hurtful or whatever versus the people who are just on some kind of daily campaign to hurt others. I've certainly got no memory of barry being one of the people who just slammed people over and over with intent to humiliate or discourage them from posting here. It's not like I've seen everything ever posted on TCL, but I guess I've been here a couple years now.
