Did I really say that? It should have been C&F et al. are better than Facebook for [whatever], but Facebook is better than C&F etc. for [whatever]. Otherwise the 'but' is kind of nonsensical even if the meaning's still clear...

Oh, come now. Giving up so soon? I was hoping for a string of images of ephemerality, not a competition. But hopes, ephemeral like all else, are soon dashed. :cry:

But pleasures are like poppies spread,
You seize the flower, its bloom is shed;
Or like the snow falls in the river,
A moment white—then melts for ever;
Or like the borealis race,
That flit ere you can point their place;
Or like the rainbow’s lovely form
Evanishing amid the storm.—
