What a magnanimous

What a magnanimous business Facebook is.

Get moving or lose it, and oh there is a reasonable alternative.

I want my money and time back thank you.

Will the deadline

Of the 20th July be enough?

Shouldn't that read as 'sit and swivel on it, we don't give a **** about any of you and you ain't going to be able to do anything about it anyhow!'

But isn't cloud supposed to be perfect?

Just leave it a couple of years until there are large numbers of real businesses who are dependent on this sort of service through other "cloud" providers who integrate third party services.
