Hah!  Tweefo, I was just going to remind you to post another one of your FB spats - your timing is excellent.

I'm prolly necro'ing but you previously asked about creating an extra FB account:

Hoe maklik is dit om iemand op te spoor op FB? As ek as "Piet Pompies" aansluit en op 'n post onder daai naam antwoord? Ek kyk gereeld na ons plaaslike koerant se FB blad. Dit  hou 'n mens op hoogte van water en elektrisiteit onderbrekings en so aan, maar hier is 'n knaap wat gedurig christelikke mems plaas. As ek nou onder my eie naam gaan antwoord sal dit seker my besigheid beinvloed, vandaar die Piet Pompies.

Easy to create the account, and the average user will never figure it out without help as long as you are very careful. FB will know, Google will know, Twitter will know, most other social and very useful apps will 'know' but the question is whether they care.  They don't, at least not unless you let it rip with truly non PC/PG content. That might get the persona profile reported, investigated and banned.  

As an experiment, I once created a profile to see how many new friends I could insert into my dreary life within 24 hours.  During this period I made a res run to Spar, had a few snacks and probably too much wine, and slept for 5 hours but still ended up with 647 new friends when I stopped the clock at 22 hours, just when the exponential effect truly kicked in. (Disclaimer:  this was an ill-advised experiment, I had probably had too much of the good stuff which forced me into this rash decision, I bitterly repent my actions and reject the very notion of breaking FB's TOS. When I came to my senses I promptly deleted the account and will not ever again engage in such behavior in future, nor will I encourage others to do so.

En ek wag in spanning! Dalk gaan ek 'n antwoord kry. Die "diktasie" woord kom uit die artikel waarna verwys word, nie seker of dit 'n erkende vir-afrikaanse woord is nie.

Sal nou nie weet van heldersiendes nie. Maar toe ek op laerskool was (êrens in die vroeë veertiende eeu) was 'n onderdeel van Afrikaans 'n ding genaamd "diktee". Die onderwyser het 'n stuk gelees en ons moes neerskryf. Hy kon dan nagaan hoe akkuraat ons neergeskryf het, spelling, ens.

Ek dink nie dit word meer gedoen nie. Die vak het op die ou end heel handig te pas gekom, want toe ek geskiedenis (of liewer, NP propaganda) op hoërskool doen, toe is daar nie 'n handboek nie. Al ons mateteriaal is gedikteer, bladsye en bladsye daarvan. Ek dink nie as mens vandag dit op skool so doen, die arme bloedjies enige kans sal staan nie. Eintlik 'n jammerte in hierdie tye van handboeklose skole.

dikteer ww. Voorsê, voorlees om te skryf: Ek sal die brief aan jou dikteer. Notas, lesings dikteer.

"Diktasie" is nie gelys nie. "Diktering" wel.

Call me crazy but I want a doctor to save my life, not "save" my life.

…while failing to grasp that that “God’s hands” adage is actually subtle disparagement.

As for “heel or land,” it could be worse than just missing u… Wink

Dit vat nogal wilskrag van my om nie die pos te beantwoord nie.

Hoekom moet 'n mens gaan bid in Bloemfontein? Ek dog een van God se claims-to-fame is juis dat hy jou oral kan hoor mompel. Aan die ander kant,  miskien is daar koeksisters.
