Cute Squirrel Anecdotes Turned Outright Cyber-brawl
After a fun fact about squirrels was posted on the Penn State Facebook page, nuts got smashed. Apparent Notre Dame students/supporters with not a whole hell of a lot else to do on a Tuesday afternoon caused a ruckus…via Facebook.
Penn State students began sharing their personal stories regarding the large presence of squirrels, when a certain kid who shall be referred to as “Gus” (oh, wait, that’s his real name) began attacking Penn State’s football team (the initial comment has since been deleted). So much for squirrels.
Clearly he didn’t shift his eyes toward the bottom left of his screen where he would have found this set of Page Policies:
Penn State’s Facebook page encourages active discussion and sharing of information and thoughts. However, content that includes profanity, personal attacks, commercial promotions, election campaign materials or is otherwise deemed inappropriate will be deleted by the page administrators.
Unfortunately, some don’t follow the rules, destroying what would otherwise be a great tool for Penn State to receive student feedback.
How does a discussion about squirrels lead to a series of nasty comments from a prepubescent diehard Notre Dame fan? Surely I don’t know.
