Who exactly are the "critics" decrying Facebook's lack of sales tax and property tax revenue? If the usual suspects want to go on record and tell us exactly why Facebook isn't a good fit, great- let's hear that and kick the tires on their claims. If it's just anonymous goofballs posting on this forum, let that just sit here in the comments. And yes, I say that with the irony that I'm an anonymous goofball!

As an aside, I don't think I ever thought I would say this, but- I agree wholeheartedly with Hank Lawrence's suggestion above. Man, typing that felt weird, but it is a good idea.
