    Good point it will keep me away from Social networks for a long time. I tryed to sign up for facebook once but the sign up interface was shit.(I DON’T HAVE A FUCKING STUDENT ID JUST TAKE MY E-MAIL)Good advice. Once I had a problem simaler to joining to many Social networks with joining to many blogging services now I just use blogger.

    Thanks a lot for posting this. I’m going to give you a trackback here. Was going to post something identical on xAbhishek.

    Amen to that! Only problem is, most people who do such things aren’t usually the ones that read blogs.

    Not that I’m a fan of facebook, but people there are thankfully (umm) move civilized.

    Absolutely agreed.

    Even more fucking irritating are the pathetic “dO yOu WaNt To FrAnDsHiP wItH mE?” requests. I mean, WTF?!?!

    Also the number of brazilian and Indian fakes. They piss me off.

    @ Lenin: Blogger IS a more laidback and formal form of social networking, I agree. But then, the general public does social netwroking via these sites, unfortunately.

    @ Abhishek: I know…some people can be real irritating on Orkut.

    @ Prateek: That’s why I considered switching to Facebook…but going through all that friend request shit again? I couldn’t bear the thought of it.

    @ Ramit: Firstly, sorry dude for getting you into trouble at school…I’d NO idea your HoD would be reading my post on WarP. As for Orkut, yup, those friendship requests from people I don’t know irritate me. Most of the time, they’re just spammers looking for access to your personal details; and guess what, so MANY people actually accept their friend requests!

    If you were a girl you’d have a dozen more points in that list of yours.Guys(the worst of the kind) in there seem to think that girls would trip over themselves to interact with them if they send scraps like “Hy baBe wAsUp wanna frins” and put pics of a shirtless Salman Khan(Pukes all over the keyboard)in their profile images.Most of the scraps in my scrapbook where of similar kind.
    And I can’t even get started over the perverted sick communities that people initiate in there.

    @Achyuth: I guess you’re talking about ASCII art. Yes, they’re irritating, especially since they’re very long generally. As for pics, I meant not posting pics which others can morph easily.

    @Uma: You sure have some irritating folks to deal with on Orkut…

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article What I Hate Most About Orkut, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.

    So am I dude!!!! If you go through Why I hate Orkut, You’d realize that we both are in the same league of the people who are dead exasperated by those non-serious and uncivilized people on Orkut.

    Bulls Eye!
    I would really love the ASCII art to be banned.
    I mean, people think they are so tech savvy when they do that.
    It used to be cool, back in the days when you had to type special ASCII characters via ALT + numpad code.
    But now, noobs like them got their hands on one of those “Orkut Tips & Tricks” communities and they think people will come asking them “hEyz DuudE ,,, , hoWZ dID yUo DO tHat??!!! “
