Crunchie, a courteous note re: this topic you created…
Please remember that Bob, and all of us here, have always been staunch supporters of free speech.
But blind links to Facebook...probably a bad idea. A really bad idea in fact.

Apologies, I probably should have copied and pasted all the text instead of simply posting a link. No harm intended.

No need to apologize, my decision and comments were in haste. If you could describe what that Facebook
link was about, go ahead and post it again, it won't be blind. But everyone should be aware that just last month
over 50 million user accounts were compromised. Back in March, yet another 87 million accounts. Not surprisingly Facebook is now being investigated in Europe and US for systematic, egregious corporate malfeasance. People will
continue to use "facebook" and similar sites anyway, but they should know what will almost certainly occur...their
personal and private information nicked for nefarious purposes and sold without their knowledge or permission.
For those interested in learning more, "A Timeline of Facebook's Privacy Issues" (NBC, 24/3/18):
https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/social-media/timeline-facebook-s-privacy-issues-its-responses-n859651.
Investigative journalism obviously isn't an NBC strong suit, so that news item serves only as a basic primer...
...but it's important to keeps things in perspective.
