I've thought about making a TC page, but it seems a lot of work for little return. Especially as many of our members aren't known as Pagan under their real names.

Yep, because there are so many ways it sucks.

#1 on my list at the moment is, they spam me.  Every so often I get something in my email box to tell me that someone I never heard of has sent me a message or "said something interesting about" me on a post, presumably to get me to go look (for which I'll have to sign up).  My first thought was that it was phishing email and the FB part was faked, but no, that really does seem to be where it's coming from.  Might still be phishers using FB as a platform from which to phish, rather than FB itself - but the result is that I get unsolicited email from FB that tries to induce me to join (ergo, spam)... and if FB is allowing itself to be used in that way, why in the nine hells would I want to become a member?

I stopped it (I think) for my main email by clicking the "go here if you don't want to receive these" link, but my Gmail doesn't present it as a hotlink so I have to cut'n'paste, whereupon it just takes me to the FB signup (presumably because, if I go straight from the link in my email, it recognizes my email address [because people have used said addy to invite me so they could add me to their friend list], but if I C&P, it can't tell who I am).

I see your point. (And you, too, Randall.)

I think the "not being out under real name" is a bigger issue from my perspective, especially because Facebook (while I use it a lot) is run by a weasel and you never know when formerly private info might become public.  I've already paid the price in a workplace for being Pagan by association, and don't want to go through that again.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of my Facebook.  I deleted my profile for awhile, and then I googled myself.  To my surprise, a bunch of pictures of me that I posted on Facebook two years ago came up.

I'm a bit facebook addicted, thought I tend to use it more for politcal contacts than personal, but I see the point of not having a page. 

And ya that's the pain of it, facebook owns rights to anything you post on there.

Yep and even if you delete it from the site they still have the right to keep it in their database.

Ya not fond of that, but still I have a ton of pictures and things up there--it's just easy to share with folks. 

It's those games that reeled me in, that and I'm 5 away from 900 friends

It just freaks me out.  Google has this map that has pictures of every house I have ever lived in, now thanks to face book, my name gets googled, and there is me!  Making it way too easy for stalkers.

Ya that is freaky, I finally had to make my page friends only (dealing with a bit of a creepy guy issue), which I really did not want to do.
