Byrne: However, at the bottom of the page there is a block of copy that indicates I am actively involved with maintaining and editing it — which I am not. I didn’t even know it existed until yesterday.”
Now, the page itself does have a small disclaimer on it, but it’s simply named “John Byrne” and John himself apparently isn’t that thrilled with it. Several of his regular forum members have even stated that they’re “apparently” members of the Facebook page and have now flagged it to Facebook administrators with a notice that the real John Byrne is not happy with this page’s existence.
me, being big enough of a dumbass to think I should be nice to a total stranger, logged into my Facebook account and sent the guy a message. I gave him a link to the John Byrne Forum page where the page was being discussed and mentioned that, given John’s long history with being a major prick over issues like this, he might want to change the name of the page to something like The John Byrne Fan Page” or something along those lines so that John wouldn’t have quite the case of getting his fan page killed that he might with a page just called “John Byrne” and sporting a picture of John where the owner’s photo usually is.
Hey, I figured I would be grateful for the heads up in a situation like that. I figured wrong.
About an hour ago I received this delightfully ignorant and laughably “outraged” response back from one Mr. Erik Black.
Subject: John Byrne Fan Page
Despite you running to teacher rest assured that the JOHN BYRNE FAN PAGE will remain as is.
John Byrne does not control the internet and we as TRUE FANS have the RIGHT to post on facebook and wikipedia ok?
Even if the page is taken down i vow to start a new one as is my right.
This is the USA not communist Russia ok?
You’re welcome Erik. I hope John shuts your ass down this and every time you create a page like this on a forum like Facebook and name it with simply the name “John Byrne” rather than giving it a fan page title.
