OIC. Well let's hope the benefits to the forum are good, as according to my wife I 'p***** off everyone I know', by unknowingly wall-papering their Facebook Feed pages, with copies of posts from a forum that is of nil relevance to them.

Don't get me wrong, your chosen policies are just that, but maybe a Sticky might have been in order, so people knew what was happening, and the ramifications of it?

No, it's more that to them I've just turned into a spambot, and they're going to hate me for it.

If I happened to be a personal friend of a long-time musical hero, just say Mick Jagger, and was privileged enough to be linked on his 'Personal/private' FB page. How do you think I'd feel about accidentally wall-papering his Feed, in front of all his Friends, with page after page of irrelevant stuff?

Something very similar to that happened to me last week, and it's highly embarrassing.

p.s. It's like StrongEagle wallpapering Don Henley (The Eagles), or SMS doing the same to Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus. Can you now feel their pain?
