This is a question Social Media Meltdowns

Ever said something you've regretted on the internet? Seen somebody make an arse of themselves? Know somebody who posts first and asks questions later? Dob them in to us, the internet police. (We last did this five years ago before Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook really took off, so now's the time for an update)

Thanks to Benny Blanco from the Bronx for the suggestion

Some tales of the many idiots I am friends with on Facebook
I posted that I was organising an office sweepstake on the appointment of the new Pope. Guy I went to university with posted 'bad taste' as a comment. I asked 'Why?'. Got a PM from him and separately from his wife telling me I was being a hostile atheist and taking the piss out of a very important issue to the world's Catholics, which was news to me...

Also, I defriended someone I went to school with because she was racist and couldn't spell (She'd been very active on a page called something like 'Say NO too Mosqs in Great British Citys!!'. She tried to friend me back and I ignored it. I then got a private message calling me a snob who was quite probably 'a bumlord'.

Finally, I had someone ask me to remove a picture I'd posted from a party once because you could see their kid in the background. I thought it was a bit weird but I obeyed. She then asked me if I could make sure the photo had been destroyed. I replied that they were being a bit OTT and it was a digital photo anyway. She replied and said 'well send me the original digital photo!'. So I emailed it to her. Presumably she deleted it...

To be fair Snowy, you are probably a bumlord.

I can only second this.
deleting racists sounds like bumlord behaviour to me.

You should have told her you'd post it on your wall and she can collect it from there

Any sane person would've printed the photo,
then shredded it

I proper LOLed at the last one.
I must say I'm with the Catholics on the first one, though. I'm very interested in horses, especially racing them. Did you know some people have the audacity to bet on such activities? It's taking the piss out of something very important to the world's jockeys.
