Day Twenty-One of a Life without a specific Social Media platform in it, causing disruption and distraction.

If you want to gain even fifteen minutes of useful time and make the most of it purge your Life of a specific Social Media platform that is undeniably useless and worthless because it cultivates and promotes racism, bigotry, prejudice, discrimination, hatred, and evil.

In just twenty-one days, having removed an unnamed Social Media platform from my Life, I have seen a marked improvement in many aspects of my Life to the point others have remarked on the transformation to the point more than one has suggested that a miracle has taken place.

Can you say the same of your Life?

Make it happen. Now.

To make people understand just how serious I am about my position regarding a specific but unnamed Social Media platform and how serious my intention is to make the most of worthwhile Social Media in general effective immediately anyone who uses a specific but unnamed Social Media platform that is nothing more than a bully pulpit will be purged from my Life. I do not need to know you. I do not want to know you because you implicitly have no interest in doing anything worthwhile with your Social Media presence and your Life.

A suggestion for all Social Media users:

If you have nothing good to say, say nothing.

Another suggestion for all Social Media users:

Find something good to say about something each day, and published it to your Social Media platform.

One more suggestion for all Social Media users:

Encourage others to make the most of Social Media.

Can you say the same of your Life?

Aside: GET YOUR SNOWSHOEING ON because snow was reported on top of Pikes Peak, in the State of Colorado:

The Great Experiment.

Call it what you will. I will call it what it is, because fundamentally it is an experiment. Add a superlative or two, a bit of theatrics and melodramatics and the summary is born: The Great Experiment.

The first test within The Great Experiment is to see just how many read the content published here and respond.

Let’s say seven days from the time this is posted for responses. All you need to say is: Read it.
