The Facebook Illness?

by James Denison / February 8, 2012 8:35 PM PST
I've been following this story for past few days, wondering if they'd settle on blaming the victims or actually finding out what's wrong with them. Seems they are still in blame the victim mode.

================
"Currently, over a dozen teen girls and one adult
in New York have reported experiencing the same Tourette's-like
symptoms of twtiching, tics, and uncontrollable verbal outbursts. With
the case now generating a great deal of media attention and public
interest, some of the teens affected have been posting videos of their symptoms on YouTube, Facebook and other social networking channels."

I have the same problem as you since Tuesday. LOL! I am in a state of LOCKOUT on FECEBOOK I have no intention of sending FECEBOOK personal identification on regaining access to their internet site. This is a total crock a poop! I have never given this site or any other site my mobile tel #'s Mothers name Fathers name. What is this world coming to? It's just ludicrous! You can email FECEBOOK at login@facebook.com If I get back the account fine and if not I will upload my present profile that has 90% of my existing profile in it. It is always a good idea to download and backup your profile just in case they lock you out. As to when you'll get your account back it might be in 24 48 96 hours a week a month or I've heard a year. FECEBOOK is bugged to death and becoming far too popular and rich for what it's giving you. Personally I'd rather come to these forums and learn computer tech A -Z. It's all here if you take the time to find and learn. Nics tics and fleas translates to the modern day Facebook mania! The world is goin coocoo I tell ya!

In my 89 years never have I seen such an illness predecent of this manic website. There is not enough detergent on the planet to get rid of the dirty laundry I've seen there.

Facebook will be invading the next version of Firefox, being built into it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
