Thanks for this, Martha. Good point re anything public could havd been copied (even screenshot) by anyone before the owner deletes it.

I am all for all the points you say here

The only thing I am truly contesting in this post was the “ownership” – as you say, and as Tim said, that’s the way the internet works now (you can’t register a domain #4ever or #4life) .
The credit card issue is probably something that has a parallel in the US that I am unaware of. I assume some ppl from lower income backgrounds are unable to get/use credit cards?
