Right now the BFC, from a technical standpoint is as follows:

Picture a 1976 Pinto that just got a new engine from 1979.

The database was upgraded but only from 4.x to 5.x and it needs to be a little bit higher.

If RYP is willing to invest some money into the site and you’re willing to do some functional and technical requirements, I can put out an RFP or RFQ to some vendors in India that I’ve used in the Gulf. Between the three of us I don’t think it would be a difficult project to manage, and AWS or Azure would make the infrastructure side pretty easy.

getting lumped in with the best of them.....

Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones and other 'dangerous' voices banned by Facebook and Instagram
New York (CNN Business) Facebook announced Thursday that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who's notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as "dangerous" and said it will be purging them from its platforms.

I guess anyone not to the Left of Lenin is getting banned from Facebook....I was banned back in February of this year - Same as RYP, I violated community standards (whatever they are)...Anyhow, I can see why a raving mad dog Republican like me was banned, but I don't understand why RYP would be? A pretty moderate guy, politically speaking.

You weren't banned for being republican. You were banned for being a plain old vanilla cunt.
