Is anyone else experiencing difficulty logging into Facebook these days?  Over the past 3 days — which coindentally happened to be 3 days I had more free time in a while, I’ve been having problems logging into Facebook.

I’ve gotten several apologies and promises to “make this right” after I email saying that these guys screwed me while in Seoul, South Korea this past week & the post that I spent hours looking through and adding up the communication over the months to see if I really was justified in getting angry.  I don’t like hurting anyone, but when I’m taken advantage of or when I see others getting abused for no reason except being helpful and innocently trying to do something positive, I will unleash whatever powers may be to make sure the perpetrators of such behavior hear about it.  I did when I wrote that two sales guys from the Northeast are literally “tools on Facebook you don’t want to use.” Continue reading
