PostSubject: Facebook to login???   Fri Nov 25, 2011 2:21 pm

Is anyone else sick of this new trend forcing people to log into facebook in order to post on websites?

First the Gazette did it and now Fox News is doing it. I think people should start complaining.

Here's the idiot on Fox News to complain to:

Yeah, the local newspaper is doing it too. No way will I post on political sites revealing my real ID.

I'm guessing that FB is going to have a lot of dummy accounts real soon.

Let's make a stink about it.

Give us the person/e-mail address to complain to on your local newspaper, and we can all file a gripe. Anyone who cares can also complain to the Fox News person whose e-mail address I listed.

Yeah, I used to post occasionally on WND's articles. You used to able to log in via Hotmail or Yahoo, now you have to have a Facebook account. I refuse to get one period.

Fox does it with some thing but not all. I will not participate in the Fox one. However there is a work around. Create a false facebook ID everyone is doing that now. Because work places are checking out your facebook page.

I was on facebook for a little bit but no longer. Just to easy to give out to much information.

But the work around is just create a fake ID for face book.

Good News! WND changed the format of their site on the first, and you can now leave comments without using facebook once again.

I went to update my profile on Fox News and now I cannot log in. It erased my email but not my ID name. 18401 likes gone.

WND is www.WorldNetDaily.com
It's a good pro-freedom news website, and I especially like the articles by Vox Day, a Christian Libertarian genius who's written a few books.

Well now WND went and changed again. I no longer see an comments section at all, they did have one at the bottom of each article but now it's gone.
