Idiot posting on Facebook...

Wed Oct 14, 2020 7:17 am

Not sure who is posting stuff to Facebook for Techreport, but they should be fired. Honestly, posting up Half Life Alyx launching TODAY, when the article is from January, over 10 months ago!!!! Half Life is NOT free to play right now and Techreport's Facebook posting is lying to people saying it is when it was posted today, months after the offer is over.

Whoever did this should be fired, honestly. 8 month old article talking about coming games that launched MONTHS previously is just unprofessional and clearly uncaring.

I recall people talked about similar things going on Twitter or something, after The Change.
I think it was said it's a old auto-posting script left to run haywire, neglected in a server located someplace no one remembers anymore...

Yep, it's not a human. It became a problem after "the change" to the point where I immediately unfollowed TR on FB.

I volunteer to correct this abysmal bot and put time in to regularly post there to keep this business from happening, or clean up after it when it does.

This silliness is just unnecessary.

October 21st posting for a September 1st news story on this site. Wow.

Well there's no new content, and hasn't been in 3 weeks, so the bot would go silent. :lol:
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

I wish it would go silent. It's literally posting ancient news. I admit, I unfollowed the Facebook group just to avoid seeing it. Still in the group, just no longer following. Which is the logical fix, obviously, but it would be nice to keep the bot fed or kill it off. Either one will do :P

Best option is to just unlike and stop seeing it. Let the dead die.

Almost hit a vulture yesterday as it was going for a fresh skunk carcass on the road.
What we have today is way too much pluribus and not enough unum.
