* Note to spimmers: I never accept Messenger or Skype links from strangers, including supposedly gorgeous Rumanian 22-year-old busty women incomprehensibly claiming to be attracted to an elderly bald guy and who are actually 45-year-old overweight male half-drunk former prison inmates in Modesto California, Kiev Ukraine or Mumbai India hoping to scam their victims into giving them money.

Social Media:

My Facebook public page has lots of news items with hashtags for course materials, left-wing politics, science topics, antiracism, feminism, cartoons, pictures of cute critters and puns. You don't have to "friend" me to see the content but you do if you want to comment. Trolls and other rude people are blocked.

Rules for participating in my Facebook page:
* I encourage well-written postings even when I disagree with their content; however, I do not tolerate postings that express bigotry such as racism, misogyny, homophobia and other prejudices.
* Stick to the topic in discussions of a posting.
* Provide evidence where possible to support your position.
* Don't post disinformation (claims that aren't true such as anti-vaxxer propaganda or Trumpist lies).
* Don't use ad hominem attacks on other posters on the page when you disagree with them - focus on the issues.
* Don't use obscenities and vulgarities.
* I delete offensive posts and send a warning about them to the writer.
* I block people who persist in violating the rules for MY page.
