Thank you Saucy Sailoress,
I understand what you're saying. Cruisersforum uses proprietary software
which you/somebody put a lot of time into keeping it running. FB will give us (as friends, etc) privacy and a BBoard and functionality similar to CF for our club to share. Paranoid members can be told to log into FB using a (e.g., gmail) account which isn't part of their work, whatever life.
Actually, I'm one of the paranoid - I've been a computer professional since 1970 but have stayed off FB because of my desire to keep a wall up. I guess if I use the mail addr I use for "job searches, etc".... But my problem. I've got to look into that.
Thanks for giving me a reason to go into FB, even if it is the second me....
