As much as I’d love completely to abandon that mess, it has become a necessary evil for promotional purposes. When we get to 10,000 members, we might be able to say our farewells. But until then, Share the hell out of it and tell at least six of your friends. And get a bumper sticker for your rigs to help plug the site!
As many of you may be aware, this website was created shortly after Facebook decided against your personal use of their website to buy, sell and trade firearms. I was blocked from Facebook the first time initially for 24 hours because someone took offense to a post dated LONG BEFORE their new policy was mandated, for a private gun for sale LINK FROM ANOTHER SITE, not even posted directly at Facebook.
Before Facebook began there anti-gun direction, I personally pumped thousands of links from various websites I’ve developed over the years automatically into their system. Thousands of posts dated BEFORE their changes were literally impossible for me to remove to become compliant with their new nonsense.
The second time was for exactly the same thing. But that time for seven days. I did attempt to remove posts. Facebook does not give page admins the ability to delete thousands of posts. You have to un-publish the page or manually try to delete each post. I sent a request and did not get a reply. It is still this way. It is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. But hey, its their billion dollar network, they can do whatever they want.
I’m grounded this time for sharing a screenshot of a nasty message that a visitor sent to a Facebook page I help administer. It was not directive or identifiable, just an example of what some people message to a page, that particular page with over 50,000 likes and 100+ subscribers and growing fast. It was simply posted as an example of the type of messages a page gets when they post something opposed to someone elses political opinion. I even removed her name and her foul language from the image so it was not identifiable.
I’m unable to do my weekly updates at the Montana Gun Trader Facebook Page for almost one month. This will put a dent in our ability to let people know they have another option. YOU can help by sharing the heck out of it!
