Facebook has just turned 11 years old a few weeks ago.
Most people who joined facebook in their teens are no longer be teens.
How can it still be called a "teen phenomenon"?

If you seriously don't know what the moderation system of Facebook looks like, you don't get out much.
It's demonstrated on pretty much every website, on TV and radio commercials and shows. Even paper media will tell you how it works.

Go back to your hipster coffeebar and don't come out until you've grown your own opinions.

Atleast getting the delete file error is quick.

I continue to be amazed by the slowness of some other common file operations,
1. Select a lot of files and directories.
2. Drag them to another folder to start copying.
3. Wait a few seconds and cancel.
4. Wait 15 minutes while a window shows "Cancelling...", during which you can't really do anything.

Why does it take so long to cancel file copying? It has to delete a single (partial) file at most.

The longer the title, the less important the job.
