Stray CATs can be very noisy indeed.
I have a similar hate for Instagram. If I'm scrolling on my phone, posts will appear as "New post from someone I follow, ad, new post, suggestion to follow this person, ad, suggestion, new post, suggestion, ad, new post." A good two thirds of what I scroll through now is either an ad or a "because you follow this other person." And no matter how much I say "Do not recommend this person," it's like a hydra where even more pop up, anyway. Fucking hell, Instagram, just give me the option to turn that feature off entirely.I know it's fashionable to hate on Twitter right now, but: Fuck Facebook. it's become an almost completely useless husk entirely devoid of what I go there for.
"suggested" posts, ads, "recommended" groups, local sponsorships, etc etc make up FAR too much posts.
I just did a count, in the first 50 things on my feed were 4 (FOUR) posts made by friends; three of which were re-shares or reposts of someone or something else's stuff.
Political aggression, "engagement" by stoking fires, propaganda, it's all there's left there.
I joined facebook to reconnect with people, maybe get some more information on how X from high school was doing, see that Y got a new job, whatever. This never ending torrent of things to make you angry and/or happy? It's just unhealthy and unwanted and frankly...unnecessary. Yeah, the occasional marriage or something shows up, but in actuality, most important things happening in other people's lives? They don't make it on there anymore. This is just useless hormone boosting crap.
Social networking = useful, healthy, interesting.
Social media = horrible crap.
Apartment maintenance guys are the worst sometimes.I put in a maintenance request to have my apartment clean my air conditioner's evaporator coils. They kicked by my request as "completed" with the note "checked". They did not at any time enter my apartment to access the evaporator coils. Unless they've got access to the attic space that I don't know about, there's no way they could have even checked the coils, let alone cleaned them, as should be done yearly as part of regular maintenance.
