Well, after pestering them for two weeks and not receiving any response whatsoever, I just said phooey on them and opened a new account. Guess what, yep, today I got that long lost email from Facebook. Here is what they wrote:

Ok, so it seems I "refreshed" too much!! How dare I "refresh" - is this in the rules? Though shall not "refresh"? I mean seriously, this is why they took one of my appendages for three weeks? Now, here's my dilemma - I now have two Facebook accounts. Which one do I use? Can you see me at both when you are logged into your Facebook? Am I now your friend twice - and does this make me special? I have never been faced with such a problem. What is a girl to do? I guess I could change my name on one, and wreck havoc on Facebook just to teach them a lesson. How dare them tell me I can not "refresh". I'll darn well "refresh" when I want to. I honestly think they made a mistake - and not owning up! LOL So, BEWARE, stay away from your refresh button. You may never know the danger that lurks when you do!
