I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but I think it will be a spark for a discussion.
It’s already a hit on the internet, but what do people on HE think about it? Well, that’s probably one of the reasons why we all passionately hate facebook so much. It’s not really a freedom of speech, but a freedom of being a complete moron. :)))) I personally agree with both of them, not that I’m taking their sides, it may happen to everyone to be in a similar situation.

@Aaron that was crazy. I guess the madness just begins and we’re gonna have a new meme.

I think the daughter and father were both being immature. Punishment enacted out of anger is often received wrongly by children (and teens). Its like trying to nonconform and just conforming to nonconformity, and I think this is the root of the matter: conformity/nonconformity. Its all bs whining on both sides though. positive conditioning works way better.

LAWL! this is why facebook is good for humans. It is bridging the gap between kids and parents. Humanity needs this. Sure, the first generations using are going to be idiots and not know how to use it properly, but its needed.

haha this looks like the culmination of a whole lot of shit/disrespect/etc. between the father and daughter.
I wonder if shooting your kid’s laptop with a .45 will become the fashion now, in addition to the old classics like grounding them and taking away their cell phone…

I think they were both over reacting as well. This should have been brought up in private and handled maturely. He probably later did, but I assume a lot of screaming and yelling went on from both sides. This was dealing with a problem indirectly. The direct problem is that his daughter is not respectful.

It’s obvious stupidity. “You have a laptop and facebook profile, yeah? I have a gun. Who’s your daddy?” Having a gun is really cool and maybe it’s for shooting at technical equipment, instead of using it on people.

@Matt, things have been handled in private far too long. A fight between a boyfriend and girlfriend is more successful when in public. Things need to be brought into public light. fuck privacy. Who the hell needs it? If you are being private, you are hiding something.

@Alex I had a discussion about this yesterday with a semi-psychotherapist. If we didn’t need privacy, there wouldn’t be psychotherapists at all. I agree with you and with Sean Parker (the napster dude) about the changing of privacy and shit, but privacy and being an idiot are completely different things. We may don’t care about “stalkers” and whatever, but some people worship their profiles on facebook so much, that they don’t want you to “invade” their false reputation and theyname their own bunch of shit – Privacy. It’s really hilarious how seriously they take themselves and “how on earth is someone not going to like them!”

It’s not private if you say it in public. It’s a show off and most of the time it fucking sucks :))))))))))
And it’s not really a big deal. I’d slap the shit out of some people who worship their walls on facebook. The funny thing that happens is that when you say to someone that they’re pathetic about being scared what people have to say about them, they call you a “troll” because that’s the new word they just learned. :D
Being afraid of criticism is the same as being impotent. The daughter was a fucking hypocrite and the father had enough of it. A fucking lot of hypocrisy is going on around the social networks. Always. :)

I totally agree with you dude. On facebook the other day, someone posted a comment about death. This guy holds himself in high regard as being and intellectual who likes to debate. So I started a debate, and posted my comment. Within 2 seconds he “unfriended” me, and deleted my comment.
The world these days..lol
