  1. Ah. Thanks for the clarification. Must be coincidence that every one I clicked on yesterday required a login.

    Thanks much.

  2. But is it necessary to limit viewing to members of Facebook? I’ve visited plenty of FB pages without being required to have an account.

    Thanks again.

  3. Please don’t tease me with links that require me to log into Facebook. I do not have an account with them, I do not want one, and I will not get one.

    Thank you very much.
