    "This year’s bitter presidential election has caused a rift in online relationships. According to a new survey, 13% of Americans reported blocking or unfriending a “friend” on social media because of their political postings

    But the results of the study, carried out by the non-partisan Public Religion Research Institute, show the impulse to block varies widely based on gender and political leanings.


    The study shows Democrats were almost three times more likely than Republicans (24% vs. 9%) to have unfriended someone after the election. A similar disparity turned up for self-identified liberals versus conservatives (28% vs. 8%). Meanwhile, only 9% of independents reportedly booted someone out of their online social circles because of politics."

    I only block ex-girlfriends..... no use to keep them on. I did keep one that was a pretty bad breakup and I was finding myself checking her out. As soon as I said to myself "WTF am I doing?" I realized defriending ex's is best practice. I don't think I've ever defriended for religious or political reasons, I'd simply have no friends. I do trim the "Friend" tree from time to time if I don't have regular personal interaction with. I like a well manicured Friend list.

    I've noticed something on my feed over the past 2 years, I had a lot of Trump supports as friends that where mucking up my feed as bad as the liberals from about 3 months pre-election through roughly Charlottesville. Since then, I haven't seen much from them at all. I'm pretty close to a handful of them and I asked why I'm only seeing the usual liberal suspect f*ck over my feed (I've taken to hiding their daily diatribes). Can't get a peep out of them.... I can only make the usual conclusions that they might be a bit embarrassed and just hoping they make it another couple years without a nuclear holocaust breaking out over p*nis sizes.

    By the way, this comment (I've taken to hiding their daily diatribes) I believe this is the worst outcome of social media. People's belief in their self importance. It's nauseating.

    It's a sad commentary. And 100% true. Like what you put out over the internet is SO important that you're willing to draw lines in the sand and fight over it....why? The level of arrogance, conceit and narcissism is frankly a little disturbing.

    Honestly.... anyone who would unfriend me because of something I post on Facebook (or Bogley) is someone I don't really care to be friends with to begin with.

    That someone would unfriend you over something so trivial is proof they will not stand by your side or help you out when you really need them.

    I think deep down people like to fight. Probably part of our evolution over the millenia. politics, sports, bolting routes, e-bikes, fat bikes, hometowns, dogs v cats, etc. Online anonymity just lets us witness the insanity in others.

    But seriously, e-bikers and snowboarders are losers.

    A man who influenced a generation of warriors has moved on. Godspeed Gunny. May you have the Lord himself locked at the position of attention when you arrive.

    This one is a tragedy.
    His writing humor was well known to the outdoor community.
