If they were really money hungry they wouldn't turn down even 3M - my cynical side wants to see this as a way to get at zuckerberg and his bloated, corrupt, crappy platform. At least they don't want to have anything to do with a possible trump reelection... Whatever the reason, I stand by Jack and his team.
