Actually I said I' was planning to dump myspace myself soon (for the same reasons as I dropped FB) - but if Alan can live with Facebook, then maybe he could live with myspace.
(I would probably keep FB for the reasons mentioned but I honestly can't work out how to run it 'clean' - and even if I did, they'd probably only do what MS did and change it all round for no good reason that I can see - so you have to work it out all over again).
I can see some merits in both sites, but a dedicated website might be best for the FPA.
The other idea might be to set up a Yahoo Group like Britfolk and the FCO forum (you could put instructions on the Facebook public access page, so non-members could join without having to sign up for FB. Costs nothing, and is very easy to do.
Messages only go to other members, but there's merit in that/
