I just wanted to post this to see if anyone can beat my score of unread What does Putin want posts.

Not me, even though the question appears to have been answered.

How about someone reposting the official FB posts from Township officials here on MOL?

Looking into the legal issues involved in social media postings by government might be a good idea.  It would be great if Morganna's posts, for example, were read and responded to by town officials.  There was a time when they were willing to engage on social media other than Facebook.  They probably focus on Facebook because around 17,000 people have signed up for SOMA Lounge, but it seems unfair that if you want to join a public discussion with township officials about matters of significance to the community, you have to give your personal information to a corporation that monetizes it and behaves irresponsibly both politically and socially.

Excerpt from Guatdian article:  

Don’t mind me, I’m just enjoying the unintended typo in relation to the Grauniad.

I have to admit, I'm a sucker for humorous venn diagrams and that one was pretty funny. At least the cat doesn't look like someone's torturing it for a meme.

here you go.

I'm not sure if you're intentionally distorting what I said or just being sloppy when you say that I'm "critical of wokeness" when I clearly said the AP tweet was an example of "over-the-top wokeness".

Which one is it?

Call me incoherent.

I think the best thing to do now is to retire MOL. It had its day but, at this point, it barely registers. No one who’s moved to the area in the last 15 years has even heard of it. Those still here, as you mentioned, are most likely no longer SOMA residents (and those who are still SOMA residents can suck it up and join FB for a better local experience). MOL is the MySpace of SOMA. Retire it, ask Mary Mann to write a nice article about you closing shop, Have a small get together, maybe she can get a picture or two and then take MOL offline. Thanks for the memories!

Completely disagree. 

No surprise coming from you.

Probably Public Enemy No. 2 among my fellow Chapel Hill basketball fans during the mid-1980s. Go figure.
