Would agree.

Maybe a simple Link Facebook entry makes sense, on a number of levels.

And, if appropriate, and as an initial task, maybe the three amigos can 
investigate this idea further, in terms of any additional link resource? 

If our amigos and link basically agree and run up simple guidelines I'm
sure someone might volunteer for basic maintenance of any such resource.

Having a quick look at the Facebook categories, 'Local business or Place'
'Company, Organization or Institution', 'Brand or Product', 'Artist, Band
or Public Figure', 'Entertainment' and 'Cause or Topic' perhaps "Company, 
Organization or Institution' best fits? And, under this category, of the
50+ descriptors available, "Community Organization" would fit quite well?

If so, then, the Facebook page-name, "Link" does indeed appear available.

Maybe a bold although sensible step. And as George writes, we should all
be cautious in view of Link's fine reputation. However, linkers, why not?

Cheers, Link
