Has anyone here recommended, tweeted about, or liked a thread?


Those buttons at the top of every thread, I always see them say 0. I've never seen a thread on here that was recommended. Has anyone used it, and if so, which thread and why?

The Ghostery extension lets you disable all social media buttons, I installed that and I feel safer on here now.

No. I worry that I'm going to do that by accident, and then people I have on Facebook will know I go on here and be able to read my posts.

I wouldn't tell one person I know in person "Hey I have a mental disorder", much less everyone I know in person on facebook. The buttons are an effort to gain more traffic, I get that websites need money to keep the lights on but it's also a site that should function as a "safe-place" for its already abundant traffic. Having Facebook buttons on this site is ridiculous.

I tired of all the Like, Subscribe, , G+, Kik, Tweet, Pin it, Blog it, Tumbler it, and the hundreds more that you see everywhere in the internet these day. You can't even visit a random article without a box that pops up asking to like them on facebook.

Adding a tweet option to a SAS thread about a someone wanting to lose their virginity is totally inappropriate.

Yeah, the social media onslaught can get stifling sometimes. I have a browser plug-in that disables those (mercifully).

Sharing some of these things through my personal Facebook account... Umm... I don't know if I'm quite ready to do that... People know I deal with some issues, but I'm not really wanting to broadcast it...

You've just got to click on it and it'll go away.

Those three buttons might as well be Satan, Lucifer and the Devil.

I need to try out some of those browser plug-ins to go back to the glory days a decade ago when the internet didn't have so much flashy distracting things and all you needed was a pop up blocker.

SAS threads are shared on other parts on the internet and often the reception isn't positive, so if anything spreading common discussions here isn't such a good idea if they want to keep the trolling at a minimum.

Just one accidental click away from outing to the entire world and all of your loved ones and friends that you are on a SA forum.

It's like having a land mine put right on your front step. Once of these days, you will forget and step right on it.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

If I fail to adapt to the fault of others, it is my fault.

Succinct is golden.

This website is actually pretty awful. Reading this site with ghostery on and seeing the **** that they have tracking me is ridiculous. When you read this site logged out the ads are malicious as well, on the phone they sometimes automatically redirect you to ad sites.

Yeah I wish those buttons would make a popup saying "are you sure" They don't though, at least not the google one, it's one click.

I actually have no idea. Good thing I always make sure to log out of Google and FB and rarely leave myself logged on.
