After 8 years of not using my real name on Facebook or having a proper account I have had to compromise and rejoin 😥

@drh sorry you felt pressured to rejoin. I'm still on it because it's the only realistic means of staying in touch with half the people I know (e.g. from my pre-NZ life)... but I grit my teeth every time I have to use it. I keep it at arm's length as much as possible, and will gleefully close my account as soon as I find a viable alternative (already done that with LinkedIn and have largely abandoned my Twitter and Github accounts in favour of Mastodon & my own Gitlabs).
