      Rate a root.

      I was listening to talk back radio and it turns out there is a site on facebook called rate a root (root in Australia means shag in the UK) It seems to be all school children that are involved?

      I know it might be a bit of a laugh (for some) but I would hate to see my daughters name and comments!

      I'm putting up the post to let people know what's happening, I'm sure some may report my heading but this is how it's written on facebook.

      No mate, this sort of thing needs bringing up. FB has to be held accountable for this sort of thing. I am sick and death of hearing that it is too big to police, or that it has washed its hands of any responsibility because it is a 'public' forum, tough, they should have thought about this before going into this type of business.

      Cheers Tony.

      DISGUSTED MUCH !!! What an age we live in, that people enjoy such debasing measures of popularity. I detest this kind of thing. It's so Not funny ....Is this mainly used by kids or is it all age groups ? I got no problem with people enjoying their sexuality but have a bit of class about it. This is like graffitti on the public toilet walls, & I bet the people getting " rated " are competitive or proud of their score. Majorly p**ssed off at any air-heads male or female who dont get just how cheap they're selling themselves & eachother.

      & Facebook should be accountable

      Facebook do remove this sort of stuff all the time as soon as they are aware of it.
      What I hate is the vandalism of pages too. Like when someone has died and a tribute page put up, and people post obscenities or porn pictures.

      I think Facebook does try to police its site and remove stuff quickly.
      Do you know though it has 700 Million users so a big job to remove objectionable stuff quickly.


      They have also developed software to automatically scan all photos uploaded to makes sure they are not porn.

      I find that Facebook moves very quickly as soon as it is aware of objectionable content.

      I hate facebook!! It is just a place where people can be bullied even more than they may be in real life. I have also heard that teeagers are getting diagnosed with depression caused (or triggered anyway) by FB as it is just another place where people can be victimised and ignored. It is disgusting how mean people can be, and that there is not even any shame in showing yourself to be a cruel horrible person. It really bugs me.

      It may move quickly but the harm that is done can be irrepairable.

      The same can happen on any Internet sites and forums. Not just FB. In this day of social networking all they can do is get on top of it as quick as they can.
