    Likewise, if FB had a Hindi language social networking ownership, then Richard "Dicky" Eklund (born May 9, 1957) the American former professional boxer in the Welterweight division would be banned!

    This is what happens when people are ill informed and illiterate about the world and its people.

    Nah, facebook is a privately owned site. If this issue is raised up in a proper manner, they will correct this issue in no time.

    I have a friend whose surname is Gandu, for real.

    His name is say Anonymous Kumar Gandu, his Facebook profile shows Anonymous Kumar only.

    You can be humourous!

    That Sukhis of China wondered if India is being ruled by Gandis!

    I was tempted to write that at least that is better than being ruled by Tongzhis ( officially Comrades, but in today's context, it is homosexuals).

    You should see the way I 'innocently' call them Tongzhis!
