Book of Comments – page 10

As of today, I’m practicing mindfulness — being aware in the present moment. And I ask myself the following question… regularly… at least once every hour: are you having fun, Mudd?

Are you?

BLACK LIVES MATTER!

PEACE & LOVE & JUSTICE… PLEASE!

no justice, no peace

Posted in society, spirituality

As I watch the World go round and round,
I am slowly… but surely… turning into a
spiritual-peace-love-rebel-with-a-cause.

But first, I must contain this boiling RAGE
which could very well unleash the
anarchist-revolutionary in me.

OM no!

FACEBOOK SAGA —> I’m back as MUDD thanks to Sister Roma

HALLELUJAH! The Divine Sister Roma’s intervention got me back on Facebook as MUDD. 

Here’s the story:

August 30, without any prior warning, Facebook disables my account. It’s Saturday night, I’m visiting friends, and my son emails one of them saying my account has disappeared.

Whaaaaat??!!

I go back to my place and try logging into my account. That’s when Facebook informs me my account has been disabled and will remain disabled till I send them proof of my identity.

Whaaaaat??!!

Monday, September 1, I write my first post about the FACEBOOK SAGA. I can’t believe this is happening: my name wasn’t picked at random — someone flagged my account!

Whaaaaat??!!

I start emailing back and forth with a certain Facebook employee called Tinka, sending her proof that I’m a “real” person — not a bully, not a fake — and that I’m “known” as MUDD Lavoie on numerous social networks. I also explain why I chose to call myself MUDD in 1982 and why I refuse to use the name I was given at birth.

Weeks go by. I’m now emailing back and forth with another Facebook employee called Arnold, sending him all the links and screenshots I previously sent to Tinka, but to my great despair, I keep getting the same reply: they want legal proof that I’m truly MUDD Lavoie. Nobody takes the time to read my plea… to understand why, back in 1982, I chose to call myself MUDD.

On October 16, I come across an article in Market Watch: How Aunt Barbara fought Facebook and got her name back. YESSSSSS… there is a Goddess = her name is Sister Roma!

And so I tweet… and Sister Roma promptly replies:

The very next day — October 17 — Sister Roma sends my “file” to her Facebook contact and a few hours later, my account is reactivated!

AFTER 48 DAYS.

THANK YOU, SISTER ROMA!

Meanwhile, back in the Real World, my application for a change of name has made its way to the government office — details in my next blog post coming soon.
