  1. Hi Yugatech. Tanks for this info. I received the same advise to reset my password via a link but I decided to research that on the Net and I found this page. Now, I started writing about this on my blog, MainbarOnline (www.mainbaronline.com) And yes, I have to take this opportunity to ask your permission to re-post the e-mail response of Facebook, of course with attribution. Thank you.
