Hi, this must be my first email after some 2 or 3 years of just joining 
Cryptome list. 
I have read many very interesting discussions here. 
So, first of all sorry for my bad english, it's not my motherslanguage. 

I really wanna ask what is FOIA .

And a even more stupid question: Facebook keeps asking me to provide a picture 
of my ID because as the message says : "It looks like you are not using your 
real name in Facebook". 

I asked some friends of me and they never seen that in their accounts in 
Facebook and their names are like John Rambo IV. :D
