    I really dont see this happening but who knows for sure, im a member of many sites and 1 has 23,000 members and the other has over 13,000 members and there are others that is running close so i would quess they would lose close to 200k just from the few sites im on, i know it aint much but it would sure put a big dent in their subscribers.

    So...if I post a pic of a gun offering a chance to "touch" it in trade for $400 or a chance for me to "touch" a .357 lever gun...can they ban that?:rolleyes:

    The local man cave page still had guns on it a few hours ago.... It's a group you have to be accepted into.

    That's only illegal in some places...;)

    Which reminds me...why aren't the left wingers all up in arms about that? If marriage doesn't mean what it used to mean, or is just a legal arrangement, so a man can marry a man, why can't a man pay a woman (or a man) for sex?

    You want to get the hetero crowd on board with gay rights? Make THAT part of the deal.:rolleyes:

    Really. Private groups that do their thing quietly and don't get reported will fly under the radar.

    Are you that naive?

    Nope. There are secret groups that do nothing but post porn, drug use, etc. Unless someone directly reports the content FB doesn't bother them.

    No they won't. It's simply a TOS violation, not a crime. What can they do, shut your account down?
     
  17. Its pretty easy.As it should be.It ain't all that hard for us Michiganders
     
  18. Undergrounds account is a different story...

    There's 3k or more members. Already a private group. Unless someone comes in and reports it I doubt they'll be searching that hard for it...

    You can always discuss what you have in verbage that does not imply a sale and simple take it to email off of facebook.

    Maybe I am in the dark on this but was/is there alot of private gun sales via facebook? I personally only use it for school via a private group for my program so not aware about alot of it.
