[ Yes, I know I'm following up my own message.  There's a reason. ]

Here's what Facebook Live did this week:

	Facebook Live 'broadcasts gang rape' of woman in Sweden
	http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38717186

  	Police in Uppsala were contacted in the morning by a woman who
	said she had seen a gang rape broadcast in a closed group on
	the site.  "You have been raped," one of the men said at the
	end of the video and then laughed, according to the viewer.
	Police later confirmed they, and "many" others, had seen the
	footage.  The Facebook group is said to have several thousand
	members.  Police confirmed that they had found three men, aged
	between 19 and 25, and one woman at a local apartment.  The
	men were arrested on the spot.

Read the whole article, all the way to the end.  It shouldn't be
surprising to anyone who's been paying attention: of *course*
a company founded by a sociopath repeatedly exhibits sociopathic
behavior: it's profitable.  Why would one expect anything else?

Now explain to me why you think it's a good idea to do anything
other than firewall their network ranges permanently.
