I do not have any activity in Facebook, specially since I started receiving unrequested information on private matters and preferences of people I do not even know, just "friends" of "friends" of "friends". You all must be familiar with the privacy problems that over and over arise.
Personally, I am against anything that weaken PBS efforts in any way. What we must do is encourage more people to support PBS by becoming members and donating seeds and bulbs and not finding fancy ALTERNATIVES.
And one would expect that "friends" of PBS in Facebook would be people that at the very least post in the (open to all) forum. Besides John Grimshaw, the others don't.
