I’m on the FB page but have rarely posted anything and will rarely do so in the future. A lot of ignorant people on there with a big sense of entitlement (that’s Facebook in general, I guess).
If I want to rave on about the Oils, I’ll do it here where I know people want to hear and discuss rather than spamming my mum with Facebook notifications of endless comments on there.

I am admin here but not on FB.
I see no reason to close this list down. not everyone uses FB. plus, it can be tiresome trawling thru all the posts on FB
How could people get so unkind?

What is the relationship between this group and the FB page? Are there any admins from here who also mange the Powderworker page on Facey?
How many fans are now using FB instead of this list?
Are email forums like this an outdated discussion platform? Is email in itself dead in the water?
It seems the discussion on FB is very vibrant and robust, and is reaching out to more ppl.
I remember logging into this group in the 90s when email was a novelty.
