For anyone who was friends with me on Facebook (under the pseudonym of “Rex Machina”), please know that my account has been unofficially terminated. I attempted to log in this morning to find that Facebook was requiring me to submit at least one government-issued photo ID in order to confirm the name on my account. Well, as you may guess, I submitted no such identification photos to the little Facebook Gestapo cretins, but I did provide them some images that wouldn’t even pass muster here. So, needless to say, my account’s official termination is only a matter of time.
(BTW, using my real Facebook account, I looked for Rex Machina and found nothing–so it appears Rex has already been “unpersoned” from all Facebook existence–past, present, and future.)
To be clear, Facebook was largely a waste of time and provided little more for me than somewhere to shit-post when I was drunk and ornery. That said, it did serve as the sole line of communication between me and some great people. Unfortunately, I will have no way of contacting them to set up alternative means of communication now that I can no longer log on, so in an effort to get their attention indirectly, I’m posting here. So if you happen to read AWD but only communicated with me via Facebook, please be sure to hit me up via my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best to everyone.
