Default Bullshit ******* spam ********!

So I get this Facebook friend request from some guy named K. He's got a bunch of "Miata" groups he belongs to and kinda looks like he might live in San Diego, so I check out his profile and a Google Search turns up that he's the CEO of GOMiata.. WTF!?!?!?

Now, I get the occasional hot-chick-come-look-at-my-****-site requests... but some Miata guy who I've never met spamming Facebook as a marketing strategy... **** THAT! He pretty much guaranteed I'll never buy anything from GoMiata and that I'm going to come here and express myself.

My anger might stem from general disconent and short-temper because I've been on this boat for 6 months and have a couple more to go, but it's probably more because I can't ******* stand that kind of bullshit.

The rumor is that GoMiata is a **** site (like they pay women to do nasty things and video tape it in the back room. I'm not joking. Anyone heard this or can shed any light on it?

I ordered something from GoMiata a while back. It is a legit miata supplier, and when I do get e-mails from them about monthly specials, it actually has name on the emails, but it's also about miata parts. It appears to me that Facebook is bullshit as I predicted and it's becoming another shithole website like Myspace was. The kind of site where you think Brad Pitt is on your friend list, but he's not cause there is actually 17 different Brad Pitt's on the website. This guy I work with used to live in the middle of nowhere is WV. He has a Facebook. I'm like, "why, that's so GAY". He says, "I post pictures of the deer I shoot and I talk to my cousins that I never see." I'm like, "The world really needs to see your deer pictures? Plus, can't you just call your cousins?" I.E. facebook is where you put people who you don't want to call, but you still kinda wanna keep in touch with.

Facebook's good if you're in the military too, so you can keep in touch with goings-on of people from your last duty station, people in the rear (or forward), etc. It's also a good way to keep your family up to speed with pics and videos of your kid, you know how many emails I'd have to send if it weren't for Facebook?

Just don't go crazy with it. I only have a select few people as friends who I don't actually know in real life. I don't use it like twitter to let people know that I'm grocery shopping or pinching a loaf. I don't play Farmville or Mob Wars or any of the other time vampires.

All things in moderation.

GoMiata does pretty good business. I bought my Katzkin seat leather there, as well as the door panel covers, roll bar, some other random junk over the years. I just hate that I get so many email from them. I guess I could always request they stop sending me shitmails.

I am pretty sure I have heard you say it in real life before. I think that means I spend to much time fixing your broken car.

Apparently this guy is a douche of minor fame... some additional homework reveals he is persona non grata in a few circles. You gotta wonder about the "CEO" of a company that the best photo he can come up with is an overexposed bad-hair-day cholo-on-Easter clearly-constipated cel-phone-pic-at-the-mall.

Got his invite too. Ignored it. I don't know what it is w/ female relatives and gay-assed farmville.

I do like the DIYPNP FB membership though. Easier to keep up with updates.

I can't believe there's this much fail here. You get an invite, you're pissed off at the Korean tool w/ spiky hair. What do you do? Whine? Sheesh! Have some fun with him.

Accept the friend request. Spam the heck out of him on his FB page. Stalk him. "Hey, now that we're friends, can I get an extra 25% off an order?" "Can you markdown item X b/c I think you charge too much."

So much potential. Dooo eeet.
