NO NO NO, STOP RIGHT THERE, THIS  IS NOT TRUE. WE REPEAT, NOT TRUE NOT TRUE.

If you have a Facebook and have been on anytime in the past week, you’ve probably come across many derivatives of this message (or perhaps you were the one posting) claiming that since Facebook is publicly-traded entity, it has a “new” privacy policy that allows them access to your data, and that if you post a status like this, whoop-di-doo, you’ll magically be exempt from these new guidelines. Don’t fall for it, because not an inch of it is true.

 There were many “rumors flying around the air tonight” (regarding violence on or near campus). Thankfully, “no one seems to be seriously hurt”. We heard some hairy stuff from friends, things that didn’t jive with the actual story. Looks like the rumor mongering might have been a game of telephone gone bad …

EDIT: While we didn’t mention race in our piece, the loquacious Avinash felt the need to make ethnic cracks regarding the robbery suspects. In his Bears Necessity post, he wrote: bq. Man, black people sure haven’t forgotten how to run. Not sure why they went UPHILL though…Um, wow. So one petty crime gets racialized? Usually we’d just ignore that, like so many other crazy/racist/sexist comments one can find on the net. But when a blogger is attempting to reflect the student life of our school, it’s important not to promote that kind of image, and send those kinds of messages. Just an opinion.
