Where's the substance?

FB trying to present itself as the innocent intermediary by using the "R" word?

So tenuous and tentative I find it difficult to believe any of it.

I use a mail app which is good but which happens to be from Russia so all my emails have a sig (if I do not bother to delete it) "sent with Mail.ru". Is that a sufficient connection even though I have never been there?

A few years ago the slimy monster at the root of every ill besetting humanity was Al Qaeda (or, in England, briefly, Boris Johnson). Now it's the Russians.
