Though not a good look for Kiwi's ;-)

My response to that is that is NOT a Kiwi! That is a moron who used to reside in NZ.

Unfortunately it's not up to YOU to decide who is a New Zealander or not. If he was born here he is automatically a New Zealander. 

Being a moron is a completely different thing. I actually think he's an idiotard too.

Good ridance. Don't need to come back. I hope the New Zealand government don't give him travel documentation (you folks know a passport is not a citizenship document in most cases right?)

I didn't say he wasn't a New Zealander I said he wasn't a Kiwi. You can be a Kiwi if you hold the values that makes Kiwi's amazing.

Give this a bit of thought. I had the same though to start with then I wondered if the smart thing was to leave the "idiot" alone.  He's giving away good intelligence to the enemies of ISIS.  Taking him out with a drone or any other method shuts down a source of information.

You've got to love daft mistakes like that.  I can imagine him proudly Tweeting from the audience of an address by a major bad guy, and a drone operator smiling as he programs a Hellfire missile to home in on daft bugger's phone signal.

Moving slightly off topic, I've read about predators using GPS information from image EXIF.   I wonder if that is one of the reasons Facebook strips EXIF information from uploaded images?

It almost certainly is.

I'd argue for the use of it so that people who use Facebook can be targeted with drones! :)

Reading that has made me feel better about having no idea what a hash tag is, and that it took me years to find what an SMS is (true story).  I did swap my aging cell phone for an iPhone last year, but I only really use it to listen to audio books, and look for interesting apps.  I seldom make phone calls, and _never_ send text messages, and barely know how to read a text message when receiving one (99% of which come from Vodafone).

However, I'll put my hand up to minor use of FB, but only for a very few groups.

Generally, Kiwis are neither more nor less 'amazing' than any other race on earth to be honest - despite the hype!

Heh, well we punch well above our weight in many areas (Sports is one good example), and being Kiwi, happy to wave the awesomeness flag regardless of how equivalent we are to others :-)

No, its so they can use it and other people cant if you take your images off facebook into other services. They also recompress them to look worse.

True, although I personally regard sport (unless you are actually playing it) to be amongst the largest wastes of time yet conceived of.
