Oh, oh, Molly feels one of her petty gripes (or puzzlements) coming on. I guess that it is fair game to also have a website. I checked. It is still active. A lot of groups, people, businesses, etc. do this to increase their exposure. But the new group made me look to the old Mondragon facebook page to see if it was time to give it a decent burial from the Links section and move it to 'Zombies'. To my amazement it is still active as well. For the life of me I can't see the point of this. No doubt there are individuals in this world who have more websites, blogs, Facebook and Myspace sites than I have fingers and toes. Personally I doubt that such a thing will get them even 15 nanoseconds of fame. Can somebody please enlighten me as to the purpose of having two Facebook groups running in tandem.
