Maybe he does not have enough friends :P

But I guess they do have good intentions, Facebook is becoming too intrusive.

Too bad it wasn't Russia then a good Soviet Russia joke would pop up...:(

Edit: In Soviet Russia, button likes you!

I'd understand if it was a dislike button, but seriously?

You're so dumb calling germans Nazis when this country actually changed in every way and has nothing to do with Nazis anymore.

haha sorry to offend you, it was a joke. Like on seinfeld, there was a soup nazi that would only give his soup to people he wanted too. Calling someone a "______ Nazi" is a expression that we use to say someone is overly controlling or strict with something.

I never called "germans nazis" just the people removing the like button. But it does fit since they were German.
