You are not the only one, Irina. I also refuse to have a facebook account for all the well-rehearsed reasons. And although some may argue that in our kind of surveillance society, this is an empty gesture, yet I feel the need to draw a line somewhere. I'd rather be King Canute than the sorcerer's apprentice.

I wish people (in general, not specifically you) wouldn't do that; I'm
starting to feel it's mandatory to have a Facebook account.  And I don't want
one; it would make me paranoid, which I'm usually not online, because it's all
right with me that *people* see something personal about me, but it's not all
right with me that a company that sells me to advertisers has my personal

Note that I'm not *asking* anyone not to do it, but if you do, please realise
that I won't see it, and I'm probably not the only one. (If I *am* the only
one, ah well, I've been a bleeding-edge Luddite all my life.)
