I approve of this message. 30 agree Reply Facebook comments aren't the worst. Moms on Facebook are the worst. 16 agree Reply Moms on Facebook are fine. Facebook users who don't know understand their privacy settings are the problem. Or rather, one of just many problems. 15 agree Reply Jeez, Sarah Brown. Stop being so fucking ignorant. You're corrupting people's children with your goddamn no-no words. FOR SHAME! 10 agree Reply The best part is that Sarah Brown didn't even write the post I linked to! I found it via her, and I was trying to give her credit. 5 agree Reply I'm so confused by this. But I do like comments on posts that ask for the post to be removed from their facebook. 5 agree Reply Now Rita's mom will NEVER let me sleep over again! 25 agree Reply I AM CRYING LAUGHING 1 agrees Reply Oh Rita's Mom – you are hilarious! 1 agrees Reply Aww…lmao. My mom used to get on me about cursing on Facebook but I think she's given up. lol 1 agrees Reply My mom used to read my stuff through my Dad's facebook, or reading over her sister's shoulder. Once I called home and my dad said my mother was reprimanding me for swearing (contextually I might add) on FB, so I told her she could get her onw facebook and comment on it there. Haven't heard a word about it since! 2 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
