        Mahahahaaaa... okay do you feel they are going a little TOO far..?
        It ain't fun unless you're drunk posting!!!!

        Online Sobriety Testing... tell me your views..


        Sobriety Test attempts to curb drunk Facebooking
        By Helen A.S. Popkin

        "Nothing good happens online after 1 a.m.," reads the homepage for Social Media Sobriety Test, a free Firefox plug-in that claims to put an end to embarrassment following regrettable, late night posts."

        I beg to differ.

        If nothing good online happens after 1 a.m., sites such as My Drunk Texts, Texts From Last Night, and the drunk page on Failbook wouldn't be worth maintaining. Without these sites, computer job goldbrickers like myself would have to reaffirm our moral superiority on sites such as TMZ – which isn't nearly as effective as those losers are famous, and often rich. And obviously, if the Web goes dead after midnight, Webroot'sSocial Media Sobriety Test would be pointless.

        As it is, Sobriety Test works for Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr and MySpace. (If you're still posting on MySpace, drinking is the least of your problems.) Much like Mail Goggles, the drunk-protecting Gmail tool, users set Sobriety Test for the hours they expect to be under the influence. Any attempt to access the chosen social network during danger time is met with a simple test, such as typing the alphabet backwards (thus protecting social networks from dyslexics as well).

        Fail, and not only does Sobriety Test block access to the social network you're trying to get on, it thoughtfully posts this status for you: "(Your name) is too intoxicated to post." Because, you know, that's not embarrassing.

        Aside from being free, Sobriety Test has little to recommend it and provides scant protection in real world scenarios. The add-on isn't available for mobile phones, those bar-friendly tools on which the real damage usually takes place.

        Sobriety Test might be appropriate for LiveJournal, if you could accurately set it for the hours you're most maudlin. Though back in the day, it would've really sucked the life out of LiveJournal's old Ambien forum, where non-compliant participants fought the sleep-inducing effects of their prescription so they could describe the colors they were seeing. But there again, what's the point?

        One might be tempted to point out, if you need software to prevent you from posting drunk on the Internet, you might want to consider friending Bill W. But that's like saying everyone who's 20-years-old has a drinking problem.

        What's more, if the David Fincher/Aaron Sorkin joint "The Social Network" is to be believed (it probably isn't), without drunk keyboarding, there wouldn't even be a Facebook to post drunk on.

        Yeah, that totally just blew your mind, but it's no reason not to drink responsibly.

        I'd rather be too drunk to post, rather then too drunk to know i killed someone while driving, if we are drunk posting then that means we are NOT out on those streets doing something more foolish then posting embarrassing doings!

        Sounds like you've had experience with this sort of thing.

        I'm impressed.  Never learned that one. 

        I'm always sober, drinking makes me tired.  I'm probably the only person who goes to Las Vegas and has all of 2 drinks.

        LOL.. Las Vegas has no clocks, weird when i first came here everything was 24 hours, theres no such thing as last calls, bars and liquors stores stop selling after 2 am, but not here, another thing that tripped me out was people walking down the street with open containers, and exotic drinks of all sorts at all times of day and night..

        I remember my first time here i ordered hot chocolate, when i did it was like the whole casino got quiet.. hot chocolate?... i felt like a square
