    I guess it can generally apply to anywhere I see my work interfere with my personal life when I do not ask for it. If someone tries to sell me on something at a store I usually listen to the pitch and wait for the close and see how good they are, it sucks for them cause all I do is judge. But that is not what is interfering with my personal life, because I am putting myself in a situation to be sold in.


    One place I hate to see marketing:

    Facebook!

    My personal page is so locked down, no fan pages, no groups, all privacy settings to the max. Facebook is my generation, I was a freshman at college (5 years ago) when it first appeared, and got my account not knowing what it was.

    It has and will increasingly become an integral part of a newer generations life. It has connected parties statewide, made events huge

    (Anyone go to Floatopia 2009 or heard of it? If you were there I want to talk to you. I had something to do with that, a large part, and the event was a grass root, viral Facebook event out of control. 12k people on the beach. One nice party)

    Saying that, it is a huge venue for making money and thankfully I haven't joined any of your BS groups but I know my friends are cause I see it on the right hand side and explore them only to see them obvious fabricated pages.

    No, I do not report them.


    I hope IM'rs don't turn it into another annoying Myspace and I know the fraud team at FBook is stricter but us IM'rs have a way to manipulate the system. :)

    So, not hating on anyone but thats one place I am untouchable (unlike when I post on CL personally) and plan to keep it that way.



    Also, Skype. That is one place I will say it. F YOU IF YOU TRY TO SPAM IM ME OVER SKYPE!



    And yes, this is the pot calling the kettle black
