Get a load of these white-hairs laughing at Facebook marching in a Pride parade at the ReaganBook announcement:
ReaganBook is "a Facebook for patriots," but it really ought to be called "a Facebook for bigots," since one of the main selling points for ReaganBook is that it will allow you to spread hate speech. (They refer to their lax policy on hate speech as "tearing down walls of tyranny, or censorship.") Right now, ReaganBook is a laggy mess of a site, but I'm sure that it will one day eclipse Facebook in popularity, the same way Conservapedia has become a much more popular destination site than Wikipedia ever was or ever will be. Or maybe it'll just be a way to cash in on some internet advertising for a while before ReaganBook's core audience dies off.
In any case, I joined ReaganBook to see what was up. You can friend me at reaganbook.com/Ayn_Randy/. The e-mail I received from ReaganBook when I joined reads as follows, in its entirety:
Hello Paul Constant,
Thanks for joining our community!
Site Name [sic]
And right now, ReaganBook seems to be made up almost entirely of people trolling ReaganBook.
Welcome to the internet, conservatives!
