    It’s a rainy Saturday afternoon so I’m doing laundry and trying to catch up on all the errands that I can’t get to during the week. I was sad to hear about the passing of movie great, Paul Newman. He’ll be missed by millions.

    I’m really pissed at Facebook. They have blocked me from sending messages and adding friends for an undetermined amount of time. This happened with no warning (although they do say in their FAQ that they warn you before blocking. There is no outlet within Facebook to contact the administrators to question their decisions. Apparently I was sending the same message out too many times. What I was sending was a post about a contest that American Express was holding to give money to the charity that gained the most votes. My post was on all the scuba related stores on Facebook asking that they vote for saving the sharks on Cocos Island. I did not know any other way to get this message to the most divers and I didn’t know that Facebook considers this wrong. Had they just told me I would have stopped. Now I cannot send any messages, post to any walls, or add any new friends. They say it is temporary but there is no indication as to when this “penalty” will be lifted.

    Am I the only was that is frustrated by the lack of ability to contact the administrators of Facebook?

    Well anyway if you are interested in helping the sharks on Cocos Island go toThe Members Project and vote for them. You must be an American Express card holder to vote. Thanks.

    Sorry for the FB rant but I am frustrated.
