Teenagers making sexual statements - Sometimes I want to respond equally inappropriately just to freak them out and show them how HORRIBLE it sounds out loud in social media world. It's like they think others can't see them?
Every Union "the city is going to hell" ad - Didn't work for bad 70's-90's Evangelism and it doesn't work now. Last night I got riled up and started to craft something brilliant saying, "Oh people will will hate this one..." when my wife said, "David. Stop. Not tonight"
Kids who used to be in my youth group running blatantly from God - "Getting drunk tonight! Who's in?" The number of times I've had to erase comments.... some good ones too. I once NEARLY wrote, "I'll bring the weed" For obvious reasons... I did not write this :)
Invites to Multi-Level Marketing scam parties - Last week on Twitter I cracked and wrote:
On second thought...gimma a couple of Visalus, I'm IN on your financial plan, let's go to that indie rock show & does Farmville still exist?— Dave Carrol (@davecarrol) January 16, 2012
Psychobabble quotes - I'm guilty of it too. But my inner Gen Xer wants to punch myself when I do it. I almost always want to respond with fictitious response like "Leadership and belief and faith when mixed with positive friendship is worth it's smiley weight in positive, leading attitude feelings" Then I'd sign it CS Lewis just to anger people.
Personal attack posts - I desperately want to give a social and relational etiquette lecture. But then I'd have to give myself a lecture too for the lecture. That would get weird.
Text Speak - Cus I hate it.
What are the things you have to bite your tongue not to comment about on Facebook and Twitter?
