caught the train to somewhere else in the U.S.
"I don't see what the problem is," said Justin Mathers, the guy in question. "I just like to be the first person to comment on a chain of stuff. It's like being first through an intersection after a red light or something."
The problem, however, is that Mathers posts "First!" on more than just long chains that businesses or entertainment pages have. John Maurer had been a friend of Mathers on Facebook for about six months. "I've had to stop posting status updates, pictures of my kids, or links to stuff because this douche keeps saying 'First!' on any blank post of mine," he said. "It was cute at first, but after he posted 'First!' 200 times on a family vacation album, I had to defriend him and join the angry mob."
To escape the mob, Mathers says he is taking the train so that he can get periodic access to the internet with his Mi-Fi subscription. "Flying is ok and all, but you're trapped on an airplane," said Mathers. "If I'm discovered on the train, I can just book it at the next stop before they can catch up to me."
Agent Claire Maxwell of the Baltimore FBI office says that vigilante justice is normally not encouraged. "In the case of Mathers, however, we are unofficially authorizing deadly force," she told us. "He once went on the FBI page and commented 'First!' over 1,200 times. This man is a menace to society."
Mathers says he is going to stay off the grid for awhile. "Once the pitchforks go back in the barn, I might consider coming out of hiding," he said. "Until then, I'm just going to check Facebook when I can, comment when I must, and you'll never be able to find out where I am."
