Does anybody refused your help in spreading the word on FB?
I'm not on FB and I will probably never be, but I've absolutely nothing
against you promoting QGIS on FB, if you feel like doing it, just do it.
What I don't understand is why you criticize this ML, if you don't find it
useful or you don't like it, just unsubscribe.
