LINKING BARKNIG BEAR TO FACEBOOK IS FLAT OUT DATA-MINING

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
HEY YOU AT BB AND EPIC...
SEND ME AN EMAIL       operlin@telus.net
EXPLAIN TO ME WHY THESE SEPARATE ACCOUNTS SHOULD BE LINKED.
I THINK IT IS A PROTO DATA-MINING CON JOB...
QUITE SIMILAR TO RIFD CHIPS IN VARIOUS FORMS OF IDENTITY CARDS;

WHY SHOULD THOSE IN MY FACE BOOK CREW BE ACCESSED - ESPECIALLY IF THEIR INTERESTS IN FACE BOOK  DON'T GIVE A RAT'S ASS ABOUT SKIING.
WHY SHOULD THE FAT PEOPLE AT BARKING BEAR GET ACCESS TO MY FRIENDS ON FACE BOOK.

I WANT AN ANSWER.
I HAVE BEEN POSTING CONSIDERED OPINIONS ON BB FOR YEARS IN AN ATTEMPT TO PROMOTE REAL SKIING AND CUT THRU THE BS OF FUZZY LANGUAGE AND PROFESSIONAL SKI TEACHERS WHO IN REALITY ARE OLD FARTS GOING FOR LUNCH ON A MOUNTAIN.

Hi Paul,
The option is there so that you can (if you choose) have links to your posts appear on facebook.
A lot of people on here use facebook. A lot of skiers (some who don't even know of EpicSki) use facebook, and since we have provided the option of linking accounts, we have seen new members who have signed up after finding out about EpicSki through it.

It's got nothing to do with radio frequency identity systems or data mining. It's not big brother watching you. It's a facility we offer, in the same way that many other websites do.

I hope that goes some of the way to allay your fears.

(oh, and yes, I have my accounts linked, but I rarely ever publish my posts to my Facebook account, unless it's something I want to share that way)

Dude,

Just ignore the facebook stuff, and the forums work like they always did.  I do not have my account linked to facebook and have had zero problems posting, replying, creating threads.  It all works fine.

i am corrected again - the boot guys' forum has SPECIAL PERMISSIONS attached to posts, and it seems i am not qualified to tell the delta guy to go to RONLEMASTER's site for theory.
Nor tell the NEW LINERS guy to go to a shop that does Conforms or Intuitions and buy the replaced NEW liners for fifty bucks a pair.

Also every page i go to has the facebok canel button in the way, so my last point still needs an answer.

 I find g-force to be rude, offensive, and ignorant.

I might be speaking out of turn here but, g-force, you are not...wait let me use your form of communication: YOU ARE NOT EVEN A SUPPORTER HERE AND COME ON HERE ACCUSING THE GOOD PEOPLE WHO PROVIDE THIS WEBSITE, A SERVICE TO SKI COMMUNITY, OF TRYING TO GET YOUR CRAPPY PERSONAL INFORMATION.   EVEN IF IT WERE THE CASE, AND THEY USED YOUR PRECIOUS INFO FOR SOMETHING THAT MIGHT HELP BETTER THE SITE....SO THE F WHAT?   DON'T LIKE IT THEN LEAVE, WE CAN GET BY WITHOUT YOUR PALTRY 127 POSTS SINCE 2004.

Hi Paul,
The "Ask a Boot Fitter" section is a specific section where professional bootfitters can reply to questions. These bootfitters are qualified and recognised in the industry.
The section is there so that the people receiving the advice know where it has come from, can respect the quality and know that it's not just someone spouting off on the internet.
If you feel you have the qualifications, skill and attitude to be part of that group, get in contact by PM with them and they will consider your application.

I'm going to struggle to answer your questions as you appear to be making a lot of blank posts and shouting all the time.
If you'd like help, please ask a question that isn't about censorship, product tracking, or how evil Facebook is. By asking a question that can be understood, I'm sure we'll be able to help. Hopefully you'll also manage to post a "thank you" as well.
Politeness works wonders.

 This might be the most pathetic attempt at post padding I've seen. Also lose the capital letters please.
