Princess, I didn’t cancel my account because, sadly, it’s connected to everything else in my world, and I still skulk around in there to see how a few of my friends and relatives are doing. I left my page up with a link to this article. But, between Google and Facebook ads, I get spammed constantly, both online and in email. It’s awful. I’m hoping that now that I’ve quit clicking on anything, ever, eventually they’ll think I’m dead and find some other poor sucker to pester.
