A couple years ago I gave up on checking Facebook messages. At that time all I was getting was rules questions, that I was asked not to answer via Facebook, and Happy Birthday messages. I specifically remember the end of checking messages. I was sitting in my hotel bed in New Orleans the day after my birthday, not really wanting or able to move due to the prior day’s activities. I don’t recall what made me stop checking them that day, but with few exceptions I haven’t opened them since. In fact I can only think of 2 times, one being getting directions while I was out of the country, and the other being Worlds related.
Why am I saying all this? Because a friend talked me into using them again. As of writing this I haven’t actually opened any messages yet, but I will soon and see what I’ve missed over the last 2.5 years. It may be 3.5 years. I guess I’ll find out when I start opening them.
