Heard about PTH? It’s political tagging harassment.

By | August 29, 2012

Today I get a notification on Facebook; “Name Surname (friends with Name Surname) commented on a post you were tagged in”.

What started out as curiosity quickly turned into rage when I noticed I was tagged in the below. I won’t go into the merits of the content because as I said in a past post, I am more interested in what is happening now.

Apart from the appalling Maltese which would make Mikiel Anton Vassalli turn in his grave, the whole premise of the post was offensive.

The genius who came up with this set of photos (oh yes there’s more than one) thought it would be incredibly clever to include ‘Aghfas Like’. What a dumb thing to do! So you are trying to expose the use of violence by whoever, and then you’re asking people to like it? Einstein was right when he said only two things are infinite; the universe and human’s stupidity.

Just in case this happens to you, Facebook has one easy solution. Click on the photo in question, then click Options (found on the bottom of the photo) and choose Report/Remove tag. Facebook is nice enough to give you some options. In this case the most appropriate option was the below.

Why am I ‘friends’ with the person who tagged me I hear you ask. As most of the people out there I use Facebook as an information tool, meaning I accept most of the locals friend requests and am interested in all views. However, with such things I have a 3 strikes and you’re out rule, this was the first strike.
