Why is the egghead forum on facebook getting into politics? All is see are pro-Obama and anti-Romney garbage on the page. I liked the page thinking I was going to get some decent perspectives on cooking, certainly not politics. Regardless of who you are for, good God, create your own personal page and spew that garbage. Where are the moderators (key word moderate), when you need them.

    Not sure it is an official site.  There is a Big Green Egg page on facebook though.

    Apparently he's campaigning on his page to get Juanita to beat me in the throwdown. And he said I made some sexist comment? I don't even know who this is or what he's got against me.

  • that FB page is ran by Tweev. 

    It is NOT, nor has EVER been officially sanctioned by BGE corp. 

    He has made himself a pariah on the old forum, as well as this one.  He has also been trying to hack into my account (unsuccessfully). 

    so, unless you want to "like" something by someone who has been considered a troll on both forums, and unless you enjoy your Big Green Egg skewed by political bias, and unless you wish to have your accounts hacked, then I'd suggest not liking that FB page, nor interacting w/ it or him.

    Sweet. My fb profile is something I don't care about. I'm going over there and getting belligerent.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I should have known....tangled with Tweev on this forum when I first joined. I'm a fan of the official BGE page on FB just thought the forum one on FB would be an extension of this.

    Seems some people should leave their mothers basements and check out reality sometimes....

    Maybe I can get some of the S-6 guys to hack his stuff. Those guys are huge nerds.

    Honestly the moderator of this forum should file a complaint and have the page pulled. If it's not affiliated there's a way to notify FB and let them know and they'll pull the page down.....Crazy what people end up doing. Kind of a bipolar, Cybil like persona....

    It's an original forum member sticking his thumb in the eye of BGE and the forum. He's still on here. If you want my advice (and who wouldn't) give this one a wide berth. If this gets roiled up, this place will go up in flames :)).

    That little dust up will be but a mere blip on the radar if this goes off. Those with Thin skin can go ahead and get their letters to the mods, BGE corporate, INTERPOL, and whoever else might listen. As an elder statesman, I (as always) will stay above the fray. You can add the names of the offending in after the fact. There will be many :))

    I get trolling for like a few days. But doesn't it get old? And don't you have other things to do with your time?

    I did the opposite of missing it. Kinda started it. The villagers were out 'en masse trying to run Centex out of town. I think it's settled down....unless so many angry letters were written to Corporate that they have not had time to sift through the evidence. It was all PG but feathers were ruffled.
