Nothing humorous, just a public service announcement/request.
I am really getting tired of this new NO DELETE Newsfeed format. I hate it. I lose things and most of all miss things (especially blogs!).
I don't know about the rest of you, but I would use the Newsfeed as sort of a to do list. When I take care of something or there are multiples (e.g. favoriting Doc Ellis' LSD no-no, A LOT of us liked that one) I delete it. If I also liked someones favorite a lot, I will also favorite it (see above).
I like both (are they the same person?) Tubular Goldmine and That Happened (nothing like having seen a vid before it is featured, that makes me hip and in need of a life) . Nothing like getting 30 videos from the two of them at once to clog your feed. I do like some of their videos, but others suck. When I watch them, I like to check them off the list by deleting them.
I have contacted FOD about this and got the well after 4-5 weeks it will go away anyway. This is fine, but I am drowning NOW. I used to keep mine at about 200 (mostly filled with JoeLeeThree jokes). Now I am way above that and climbing. I can imagine others are in far worse shape than I am.
I know I have missed some blogs by folks out there with this new NO DELETE format. Sorry, I am trying to not miss any.
If you are as *&$%#@ upset as I am PLEASE,PLEASE contact FOD and ask for the ability to delete Newsfeed items to be returned.
Thanks, and don't eat any of the Slant turkey gravy today. ;O
