93% Of Blogs Will Never Mention Status Spam

Will you?

I know I will. I'll mention it.

There's a weird animal out there. Someone's pumping into the Facebook system status spam. It's not selling anything. But it's just as annoying.

I don't like any of the messages, but my favorites among the ones I don't like are the ones that tell the statistics about who will repost the message:

People should understand that children with disabilities do not have a disease; children with disabilities are not looking for a cure but ACCEPTANCE........93% of people won't copy and paste this, WILL YOU be one of the 7% that does and make this your status for at least a hour

You're one of the very special people, in the 7%, if you will make this your status for at least an hour. "Would someone like you ... post this on your status ... for someone like me?"

Here's a new one, written by someone who thinks supporting the troops means we need to ignore bras. I say we can have both, everyone stripped down to their bras while carrying the flag!

ANYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY PATRIOTIC ANYMORE!?! Bra colors made FaceBook news BUT WILL THIS? Lets support our Troops. If you support our Troops then please post this on your status and leave it there for one hour. There should be no excuses from anyone!!!!! This should appear in everyone's status

Several of the status spam entries try to shame you into reposting them. You've got to prove you're with the in crowd, or else! The religious ones don't come right out and tell you you're going to Hell if you don't spam your status, but the threat is real:

For my Friend, Jesus, a new Facebook challenge. I am out to prove that my friends will repost, I hope I am right! Let's lift up His name and make a statement. When Jesus died on the cross He was thinking of YOU and me. If you are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, copy and repost! Remember God said if you ......are ashamed of me I will be ashamed of you.

Then there's all the ones that have to do with the relatives we have. Our grandchildren, mothers, brothers, sisters, and fathers are the greatest in the world. And when they start complaining we forgot to write, we can always say, "We remembered you on Facebook."

What's on your mind?It is GRANDCHILDREN week. If you have been blessed with grandchildren that are truly amazing, the pride and joy of your life and make growing old so worth it, copy and paste this on your status. God bless grandchildren!!!!

 IT'S "SON WEEK" : If you have a son or sons who make your life interesting and fun, who has been a blessing in your life and makes life worth living just by being around - copy and paste this to your status. ♥.Your Sons will outgrow your lap, but never your heart...♥

Daughter week : If you have one daughter or more who makes your life interesting and fun, has been a blessing in your life, and generally makes life worth living by being around, copy and paste this to your status. The world would not be the same without daughters....I am truly blessed to have the best!!!!!!

 If your Mom is your hero, whether you are blessed to have your Mom still with you, or if she has gone to be with the Lord, copy and paste this with her name.

Or if she didn't post the thing about the Lord when she had her chance and went to Hell, you can also copy and paste this with her name. But please do so in the middle of the night, so it will scroll off before all the good people get up in the morning.

There are plenty of ones to be had for those who are up in the afterlife somewhere. Those ones we'd go up to Heaven and bring back, if only we could.

Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my hear......t. Repost if you have a loved one in Heaven! ♥ ♥ For my many loved ones waiting for me in Heaven.

And a couple others have to do with the nature of true friendship. I chose you. I made a conscious decision to make you my friend. Also, I'm a fan of McDonald's and a member of I BET I COULD FIND 1,000,000 PEOPLE WHOSE FAVORITE COLOR IS PLAID.

Every single one of you are on my friend list as a result of a conscious decision. I am not only glad to count you as friends but also as family! Let's see who in my Friend's List actually pays attention. Copy and repost this in your own bulletin. You can't choose family but... you can choose friends..

A true friend doesn't care what you're wearing, if your home is tidy or not, if your car is making funny noises, that you only have $5 in the bank this week, or that you and your loved ones aren't perfect... A true friend just loves you for you! Repost this if you have at least one true friend. ♥

Hey, if you are my friend, don't forget, You owe me $5.00! 93% of you will never pay me back!
