Tickled to learn that today was organized as a log off from Facebook protest. And yes, I've logged off from all devices.

And, I learn that the request is to stay logged off for three days. I'm all in.

I can do 3 days w/o FB standing on my head. I have no love for it generally, although some of the private groups I belong to are indispensable. Makes it tough to just leave. :-\

It would be tough to pull the plug completely, true.

Just as an example, there are probably fewer than 100 people in the country who braid rawhide and leather like I do. And at least half of them are in the Rawhide & Leather Braiding group on FB. That's a resource that can't be replaced. :(

While this certainly qualifies as one of the least toxic aspects of Facebook, I point out that that is a mild annoyance:

Hi, [name of group admin]. I am puzzled. I proposed a post which was simply a line from "The Air" thus: "we can crash in my Nash." I got a message that the post was denied (presumably because it violates group rules). I should very much like to know what rule that post violates and how. Thanks for your understanding and help.

Haha.

As far as the thread title goes - I did, but I don't now, and far prefer the latter status.
