More a WWYD - would you cull if an FB friend (not a close friend) had joined a pro BNP group?

Q is in the title!

Marthasmama Mon 15-Jun-09 16:01:12

Yes, absolutely, without hesitation!

Gosh yes, I was heartened to see how many of my FB friends had joined Anti-BNP groups.
Would cull those who were pro, without a doubt.

I've 'culled' for a lot less

Thank you. The person used to be a Uni friend, was fairly close when in Uni but only because we were in the same lectures etc, never had loads in common. It's been a while now and we aren't really in touch apart from FB.
My first reaction was to get rid but wondered if I was being ott.

I would send them invites to every anti-BNP group going and see if they say anything but I am a bit of a troublemaker.

Less hassle just to remove them.

get rid.

Apart from anything else you will be plagued to be friends with his wider network of BNP friends. Shudder.

Yes I did, I had a bit of a giggle first because of the fact she is a single mother on benefits... makes its quite clear she doesnt have a single clue about the BNP's intentions!

hehe drowninginclutter, I am so tempted..

MildredRoper Mon 15-Jun-09 16:10:26

Yes, no question.

Actually I wouldn't just delete her I would write on her wall asking her if she is aware of the BNP's misogynistic policies and the extent of their racist hatred. If she remains a supporter after that I would delete her.

Hmmm - i'd try to educate her tbh rather than cull her. Can't solve a problem by sweeping it under the rug. Surely she shuld be talked to and have a better understanding of what she is supporting. If she responds as a racist bigot then delete as appropriate, but i always think education is better than banishment.

I witnessed someone do this to someone else last week. A friend of mine culled a friend of their as it came out over wall posts that she supported the BNP. My friend then told her that he was getting rid.

ive culled a BNP supprter. twunt i went to school with. he was a moron then, guess he's an even bigger one now. but would def make the cull public.

My friend has just joined one sad. Think it's more an ignorance of the BNP policies than a belief in their ideals. I've joined the "1,000,000 against the BNP" group. Haven't spoken with my friend yet and am not sure what I'll say when I do.

If you're not really good friends, then I would cull her.

Queenoftheharpies Mon 15-Jun-09 17:22:24

Is it possible she's trolling them? I know a few people that specifically join groups like that for the purposes of tormenting them.

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Mon 15-Jun-09 17:37:59


I second Queenoftheharpies; I've been known to join contentious groups just so I can post my arguments on their wall. Are you sure she's a true follower?

If she is I would cull too.

YanknCock Mon 15-Jun-09 17:46:58

Yep, I'd cull.

sleepyeyes Mon 15-Jun-09 18:17:01

I wouldn't be friends or be associate with anyone connected to BNP. YANBU.

howmuchdidyousay Mon 15-Jun-09 18:17:35

Yes I would

HecatesTwopenceworth Mon 15-Jun-09 18:21:18

Yes I would. A not close friend, a close friend, even my own mother!
