How Often Do You Say Something When...

...someone on Facebook has fallen for some nonsense hoax post? My half sister, bless her heart, has fallen for the "Boycott Shell Obama Effigy" post. She is one of the most internet-gullible people I'm friends with on Facebook (see also: my mother) but I rarely tell her that what she's all het up about is total crap.

I feel like I should at least point her to websites that debunk it but I really don't want to be "that person" who is constantly telling her that she needs to put on her Is This Bullshit? hat before reacting to anything inflammatory posted on Facebook.


So I just let her be. Occasionally, someone will correct her but most of the time her friends comment with "WOW" and "NO SHIT??" and I really want to say something but I don't want to end up being a dickbag know-it-all.

It can be kinda funny though. She posts and reposts that parable about the cheating husband carrying his dying wife through the threshold of their home as a REAL THING THAT TOTALLY HAPPENED GUISE.
