I have plenty of my own grievances with Facebook. However, are you aware how much info was gathered right here from this forum? It was never owned by us, and was a completely public forum. My Norton anti-virus constantly picked up malicious ads from here and blocked their access to my computer or information.

The web is just that - a web, with tentacles everywhere and we have lost much of our privacy. I know well the problems inherent with using FB, I believe most people do. But without paying major dollars to have our own server to host, not to mention the hours involved in doing so, Facebook provided a quick alternative for a group here that will disappear in a couple months. I didnít even know if people would come over, and low and behold in just a week we are at 192 members. So for now this is our answer.

        It was so much fun in the old days to come here. New times, new formats for people to share.
