Facebook don't give a crap either. They don't even pretend to try and stop it -- like I tried to report "Virgin Atlantic, " post because I know what it is doing: but these are your options:

It's not really any of those, but I guess "I don't want to see it on Facebook".

Nothing really there either, so "Something else":

Fuck it. I give up trying to help Facebook clean up its own mess.



Edit: I used an example from a screenshot of a friends post by Grammarly -- which appears to be a legit site/service.

You do realize it's an inverse correlation. Weeping

They need a "Fuck you Zuckerfuck." as the default.

Exactly. This is literally a business model and leverages ignorance to achieve its ends:

RE: What is this FB sharing business?
I hate all that shite....If I share something on Facebook its usually because I think its funny or interesting.

I hate all the "share if you have awesome friends" shit, and "like if you love your partner" bollocks... No, fuck off.

I'm fucking sick of seeing Despicable fucking Me minions... little yellow shits.
