Some Web Pet Peeves

A few things that bug me, do they bug you too?

  1. Users – I don’t mean the people, I mean the word. Why do software companies call their customers “users?” I thought only drug dealers do that? Customers are called “customers,” people.
  2. What part of FREE are you not getting? - Sure, Facebook keeps fiddling with things while seemingly oblivious to the wishes of their members. (Hey, that’s another better word than “users” isn’t it?) What do you want FOR FREE? Deal with it, or go find another way to keep in touch with people you probably wouldn’t talk to if you were in the same room.
  3. Online privacy – Sorry Facebook, at least this one isn’t only about you… Yeah, there are places to find out stuff about you that you don’t want found out. Guess what? If you don’t provide anybody with the info, they won’t get it. And for info that’s public knowledge, well it’s public not private so stop complaining.

I feel better after getting that off my chest. Now all of you people get off my lawn while I go take a nap. #grumpyoldmanstuff
