Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

Give them a password... when it doesn't work, tell them you just went and changed it since it was no longer secure, but it was the password when you filled out the form :p

Really though, I don't see how this is legal... oh, its New York, the government there doesn't let laws or rights get in their way.

Hehe, this wouldn't work in my case. I have the login verification turned on. They would need my phone at the same time they tried to log in (which I certainly won't give to them).

Ask your kids how they create multiple Facebook accounts - one for the parents and one for their buddies.

None of the eight (8) applicants who supplied Facebook information have had their accounts accessed, which I know because I am the investigating officer and the only person conducting background checks.
I approach this duty with the greatest respect for gun owners and their rights, a perspective that is shaped by my 9-year service in the U.S. Navy and exposure to guns at a young age through my grandfather, a well-respected gunsmith. I do not take guns, gun safety or our freedoms as Americans lightly, and as Chief of Police I have a serious job to do, and I approach it with respect.’
– Watervliet Police Chief Ronald A. Boisvert, Jr.
The FaceBook information is so vital to the investigation of the applicant's suitability to receive a pewrmit that they have not even bothered to look at the FaceBook account of the folks who caved in and gave up that information.

:banghead: Just :cuss:-ing :banghead::banghead::banghead:

stay safe.

THIS FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!

Heck; I lie on so many government accessible forms I have trouble keeping track of who I really am. Had to see a new doctor (specialist) last week and filled out the now (or soon to be) Obama accessible forms. I was a Pacific Islander between 25 and 35 years old who has never smoked or drank who's social security number was NOYFB.

Oh... I'd give them a password all right ... guess what it would read?
Some variation of c0p$Su(k ?

I saw one response from the police chief that basically said, "that shouldn't have been in the application packet; it's something we use in interviews".
So now that the public knows about it, will they stop being nosy?

I see above I had a comment deleted...I do not believe I typed an F bomb. I have more respect than that. Are you sure?

I guess maybe I could have...I sure don't remember it though.

Well, I used an acronym which suggests it. It's also one which is obscure enough that kids wouldn't know what I meant, methinks.

Oh well.

Well, copper, I don't do Facebook, Tweeter, MySpace et al... I have a land line and a cellphone that I use to make voice calls...you do remember what a voice call, do you not? I don't do text/SMS messaging either. Have not activated my voice mail either or have a answering machine. Oh, and, how about supporting the USPS while you're at it and mail me the permit you commie pinko!
