I just officially changed the city I live in from “Rome” to “Oriskany”. I moved a few weeks back and just realized it hasn’t changed yet. The process was pretty painless to change, but I guess that isn’t the case for all people.

A flustered woman is pretty angry with administrators at Facebook because they refused to allow her to mention her hometown, which is Effin, Ireland. Ann Marie Kennedy, who joined FB in June, and says that she’s being discriminated against because some folks use her town’s name as shorthand for a frowned upon four-letter word.

She says “I’m a proud Effin woman. There are other Effin people around the world, and they want to put down that Effin is their home town.”

Facebook is reportedly taking a new look at its Effin decision.
