It would be the highway for me too Scott. I had a FB account for some NASCAR buds a couple or three years ago until I read so much negative about it and deleted it, which for some reason, takes FB 2 weeks to do.
I like to enter contests sometimes too and there are so many that want me to log in to FB. Anyone wanting to me to do anything with FB will have to kiss my, uhmm, you know.
This sounds like a commie plot to me, or Marxist. No I don't think you're being petty, rather practical and safe. Huffington can go huff themselves.
