    The title pretty much asks the question. Does anyone here know if what I just asked has happened, if so, then when, and more important, why.

    DISCUSS !!! (Feeling Pengy like this morning, sorry Peng...)

    That's not exactly a story for which I'd want PF to receive notoriety.

    I agree Astro, this is an example of how quickly "gossip" news can travel. Greg said he had a few examples, hopefully uplifting ones. Perhaps my story will serve as a warning to young people not to post potentially embarrassing things that could affect them in a negative way in the future.
