  • John, maybe you had better take a look at this.

  • Why would I be connected to this page during my vacation in Maryland and DC, if it were not real life?

    April 4, 2009

  • *ouch*
    Real life. Yep, yep. Uh huh. That's what wordie is.

  • with regards to chained-bears' comment...

  • Right! *quickly hands John a nice wedge of cheese and a live squid*

    April 4, 2009

  • *quickly rebuilds fake scenery*

    Oh, don't be silly, John! Of course Wordie is real life! Everyone knows that! Right, Wordiezens?

    Right?

    *kicks other Wordies under the table*

    April 4, 2009

  • Wordie's not real life?
    *eyes open wide, confused blinking*

    April 3, 2009

  • Did you flush them also?

    *thinks about UnFacing some people*

    April 3, 2009

  • I agree--though I've had to UnFace people on occasion.

    April 3, 2009

  • I don't believe that not having met a person in real life necessarily means they cannot be a friend (and therefore a Facebook friend). I added people I know only from Wordie, and I never met them in real life. Also other friends from afar whom I know from extensive electronic communication. If I'd drawn the line at not "friending" someone I'd never met in real life, I never would have met my S.O. *shrugs* Not a policy for everyone, of course, but there it is.

    April 3, 2009

  • I have never had to make use of such a verb: I don't add people I don't know on Facebook.

    April 3, 2009

  • Flush might work. Hmm. "He kept making rude comments on my status updates, so I flushed him." Yeah.

    April 3, 2009

  • I like flush. It's harsh, but, like, what were they doing there in the first place, right?

    April 3, 2009

  • Sorry, DeFace?

    April 3, 2009

  • Deface?

    April 3, 2009

  • Faceback?

    April 3, 2009

  • Faceoff?

    April 3, 2009

  • facebook burning?

    April 3, 2009

  • Is there a verb for deleting someone you never met from your friend list? I want there to be a verb. I don't want it to be unfriend.

    April 3, 2009

  • It is! It is all Facebook's fault! Why, just yesterday, when I wasn't feeling well and a last-minute deadline loomed, I handily blamed both on Facebook. :-)

    March 25, 2009

  • It's all Facebook's fault.

    March 25, 2009

  • Stupid Facebook....

    March 25, 2009

  • I would have taken plethora's stance until the recent redesign of facebook – at which point it ceased to indulge my fantasies of any kind. Very sad.

    March 25, 2009

  • That's what Wordie's fooor...

    March 21, 2009

  • I'm not sure I have any friends.

    March 21, 2009

  • 6) There is no way of adding someone as a friend, and reading their posts only. You are therefore exposed to points of view that are not necessarily the same as yours.

    March 21, 2009

  • I love both Wordie and Facebook almost equally (Wordie wins by a little bit).
    I use facebook to indulge my teenage girl tendencies, and wordie to let out the logophile within. They complement each other and I would go insane without either one of them.

  • Five Reasons Why Wordie is Better than Facebook

    1. The home page is simple and elegant.
    2. The design doesn't randomly change in ways that remove most of the functionality you've come to value.
    3. It's not trying to be something it's not (unless, in a spirit of whimsy, you count flickr).
    4. It's able to waste my time for longer while leaving me with the vague feeling that I might have been improving my mind.
    5. Did I mention that the design doesn't change?

    March 21, 2009

  • A *facepalm* when you're reading with your hands tied behind your back.

  • A word about linking to Facebook from your wordie profile. The "username" needs to be the ID number that you see at the end of the URL when you are on your Facebook profile page.

    (Putting in your real Facebook name or a pseudonym will just result in a click-through to the Facebook Home page, not your profile.)

    March 30, 2008

  • Haha! See? I knew it would happen!

    October 18, 2007

  • I just created the official(?) Facebook group for Wordie. Y'all join up now!
