There should be an option to either sign in with facebook or not in my opinion for many reasons and until thats the case i will not be joining unfortunately. As some have mentioned on other threads that we shouldnt complain and just create a fake facebook account which i totally disagree with as why on earth would people in their busy lifes want to even create more subscribed items for instance generate a new mail account and facebook account to just access a forum. Doesnt make sense to me as in my case (working in IT) i have enough to do already and why on earth would i want to do all that just to access a blinking forum! Maybe for some 16 year old who has just discovered the magical world of the internet never having one mail account in his life and nothing better to do yes that wouldnt be such a big deal but for the rest of the community i think many have other things to care about just to access a forum for a product they have purchased!! And yes i do have a facebook account but why would i want to associated a product i purchased with to have anything to do with my facebook account? yes it is just a marketing tool for NI but i dont have my recently purchased Fridge/Freezer or anything else associated with Facebook so i'm not going to start now...... wake up NI!!
