Meh.  It's Halloween.

I guess that's a Halloween costume? Looks like a good way to get shot when you go to your neighbor's door.

ETA: I do not advocate shooting people.

They're slowing down for me.  I've only gotten 2 new ones.

MOSTATA

Andy (Heart) Zoe.  The (heart) is a heart emogi, and the lettering for both words looks like some middle schooler trying to make their name appear "cool" on some internet forum, using foreign letters, etc.

Okay first time in this forum. Today I've been bombarded with Mormon ads on You Tube. I'm there to watch beauty, thrifting, and decorating videos not to be preached too. There has to be a better place to run them. If I want to know about a religion I'll google it.

Weird.  I've already gotten some that blow my mind, and I don't understand where they are coming from.  I get some from eBay (I buy a fair amount on there) but for a while, there was a lot of Nazi Items showing up, and with my Jewish heritage, and my Great Aunt a Holocaust survivor, I would NEVER EVER have any interest Nazi stuff, so that upset me, and I finally figured out a way to stop them.

I had one show up yesterday that I thought was the next in the neverending line of Chinese Crap Clothing, when I looked at the t-shirts and sweatshirts they were selling, many of which had borderline racist or supremacist messages on them.  I reported the ad.  I haven't seen it since.  Makes me wonder sometimes if someone is using my computer when I'm not here.  A former co-worker's kid used our accountant's computer a number of years ago.  He was looking at porn - pretty violent and hardcore stuff.  He unleashed what our offsite tech guy (we now have one in-house) called a "Pornado".  Every 30 seconds, vile stuff would pop up on the screen.  Boss was LIVID.

LOL at "Pornado." Back a thousand years ago when the Interwebz was still fairly new, I wanted to see what was going on in Washington. I typed in whitehouse dot com instead of dot gov.... ACK!!! PORN!! And the popup windows --- close one, four more pop up in its place. Fortunately I made the mistake on my home computer and not my work unit. 

RE: the craptacular Chinese clothing.... I finally got one on my feed. It's called Comfyfree. Does that mean the clothing is free of comfort, ie uncomfortable? 😉

Ugh. By way of explanation, loooooots of Mormon mommy types are very into those things, either as viewers or blogging/vlogging about them as a sort of part-time job that lets them still be stay-at-home moms, which is widely viewed as the "righteous" choice among conservative Mormons.

I was unfortunate enough to be raised Mormon, so a lot of my family and long-time friends are either former or current Mormons, and Facebook is absolutely convinced that I want to be part of EVERY Mormonism-related group or discussion imaginable and many I never would have imagined. It's obnoxious. Basically I can't use Facebook without seeing a thousand "suggestions" for a religion I would really prefer to never hear of again (but I don't want to cut off the friends and family I do like, so apparently I'm stuck with it).
