    Sorry, I just have to rant here...

    Tonight, some woman called saying she found some website that said that my family does pig roasts in our area. Well, we don't. We own a family farm, but we don't do any business whatsoever.

    Mom had answered the phone, but I wished she had asked the woman what's the exact website she found this information from. I tried via Google to find the site in question, but all I found so far is a company profile on Manta.com

    I'm just sorry... I don't know how anyone would get a hold of our contact information and spread false information that we do pig roasts or some other form of business. I sure as hell want to find the exact website so I can contact the site owner that we do not do pig roasts and that we want such information be deleted from their site.

    Seriously, this makes me mad... no, scratch that... it pisses me off.

    Couldn't it just have been that the caller had the wrong number, rather than somebody spreading false information?

    What an odd thing to get angry about. Somebody made an honest mistake about something so innocuous as a pig roast and you get angry? Am I missing something here? Is being asked about a pig roast the new slang for "your family is a bunch of rednecks" or something?

    Weird. What a pointless thing to get pissed about.

    No. Mom had answered the phone, and said that the caller clearly stated she had found a site saying that we do pig roasts.

    There was another incident in which a friend of ours stated he say that we raise pigs on our farm, which is false... we used to raise pigs, but no longer.

    I seriously don't know how anybody got a hold of our information, but nobody... nobody spreads false information about my family and gets away with it. As soon as I find out the EXACT site this information is from, I'm going to rip the site's owner a new ass.

    LOL, WHY? Who cares if somebody made a simple mistake about your family doing PIG ROASTS, of all things?

    You act like they listed you as KKK supporters or something, Jesus.

    I'm just sorry... nobody has the right to be spreading false information about what my family does. The fact is that my family don't need to receive calls from people inquiring about us doing pig roasts, because we don't... got that?

    It's one call and they probably got misinformed. Not that big of a deal.

    I had Jehovah's Witlesses knock on the door twice in five minutes yesterday. I think that's more worth getting worked up about.

    Oh, be nice now. I understand where you're both coming from here, but please don't argue. It's tearing us apart!!!!!

    On a bit of a more serious note, that is strange, TC. I don't like it when people say false stuff about me either, but I say you forgive and forget. I wouldn't worry about it. :)

    Look, guys... I just find it wrong for someone to be spreading false information about people on the internet, okay? I view it as invasion of my family's privacy for somebody to be posting our contact info on the web and state that we run a business... which we don't.

    Totally agree. I guess I wasn't getting the big picture in my last post. I wish I knew how I could help out. I dunno.

    How do you know they were intentional? Maybe they got misinformed by someone else and put it on the site

    This.

    You're making it sound like whoever posted the information deliberately wanted your family to be inconvenienced by the phone traffic you'll get because you do pig roasts. Odds are someone was confused and said you guys do pig roasts when it's actually someone else.

    There are legit things to be mad about. This is not one of those cases. Life's too short to get mad about shit like that.

    I received a visitation from Jehovah's Witnesses a few years ago. I asked them to leave me a leaflet and come back the next day. Then I got one of my friends to tell them I was dead. He said I'd rushed out to join their church after reading a leaflet, and gotten hit by a bus.
    They haven't called here since, oddly enough.
