    • On the other hand; putting it on FB is not such a bad idea at all; since most of these ‘experimenting’ people are young and use d internet as a way to check out what people can get away with… So if this can scare them off or put second doubts in their ‘mixed up’ brains, it might just be effective enough.. And btw tourists do know that wherever you go nowadays there are some rotten apples that try to nasty up d place.. So, sorry no, I can’t agree with you.. But that’s only my humble ex-SXMner opinion.
