Why are residents of Belgium, Norway, Sweden, and India exempt by Facebook from participating in Giveaways?
what if, as a resident of one of those FB proscribed countries, I don't even have an account with Facebook? Will MakeUseOf.com still behave like such a spineless jellyfish who *must* comply with FB's regulations? It's FB, for God's sake, not FB*I*!!!
I'm with FF4sux on this. I'm sick and tired of conforming to FB on this that and the other. As a thinking Human Being who refuses to get sucked into FB, or any other social networking site for that matter, I get so P*ssed Off at needing to join to be able to enter competitions. After all I have a life to live. There's only so much left in the Bank of Time. Funnily enough I can only make withdrawals, never deposits.
both of you should stop being such self-centered crybabies... if you don't want to abide by the rules, then take your ball and go home... WITHOUT WHINING ABOUT IT...
Normally they are excluded because of the countries' laws or shipping costs.
