Facebook Whore

So here I am, working on some English homework about how Americans are becoming to view news as nothing more than a form of entertainment, and that the news media is framing it as such, 
when suddenly I get a random facebook message email!

I don’t know the person who is sending it (a certain Johnny Jones), but it seems he’s an administrator or officer on a facebook group I recently joined.

What follows is a transcript of our message exchange. Keep in mind that he sent this to all 992 members of this group.

Johnny Jones: "8 more members and then ill stop bugging you. just want to get over 1000"
Me: Hi- Please don't send meaningless group messages. Some people have better things to do than read that you want eight more members... have you ever heard that "patience is a virtue?" I'm sure it will grow to your target goal soon enough on all its own.
Me: In fact, you need nine more members now.
Johnny Jones: oh well excuse me. im sure there PLENTY of better things that you have to do. and if you really can stand the two messages that ive ever sent to all of the members and insist on being at douche about it then feel free to leave
Me: I'm simply pointing out that most people won't find your messages whining for more members useful in the least bit; in fact, I doubt that receiving them will inspire anyone to invite others. The function of sending messages to all group members is for events or important notifications--I'm sure facebook didn't have it in mind for administrators to abuse the feature like you have.
