Must be a slow news day - many large companies do this already. A few months ago someone asked a question about USAA on the forum and a USAA rep responded within a couple of hours.

Maybe the Fed won't bother with responding online, just send in the black helicopters...

I tried to friend, The Fed, but all I could find was anti-Fed groups.

No problem with the glasses, I'm certain a waiver is available, but you still must "talk the talk."

It's not the black helicopters that worry me, it's the special forces guys coming down the repelling lines - they come down fast and furious, shoot first, and no questions can be asked because they all wear masks and get out as fast as they get in.

On a side note - I have never joined facebook or used twitter. There are way too many privacy issues - JMHO.

From the article..."In other words, the Fed wants anything said about it on a social platform to be categorized as "positive, negative or neutral.""

The Neutral Zone never w*rked for the Romulans, Klingons, or the Federation.
