I have an extra Facebook account (yes, I know it's "illegal" ) that I had set up for the sole purpose of posting articles from the Wall Street Journal so that I could get around its seemingly impenetrable paywall
So, let's see if I've got this straight:
0. You breached the terms and comnditions of one site so that...
1. ... You could steal from another site
2. The first site informs you whenever it receives a message for you
3. This is the first site's correct function, rather than for use in committing fraud
4. You want our help to make the first site stop doing its duty, and simply continue to help you steal from the second site.
Sorry, but I don't use fb, so I don't have a clue.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I have been working on and off (at home) on that single algorithm for almost 2 and half years, I think.
I am now very close to completion with an elegantly simple algorithm
Except.. it doesn't work...
After days of staring at my screen I came up with a test that shows an internal data inconsistency that will predict failure.
But... basically the validation is a loop doing some calculation at each step.. .
It came literally right after the same loop applying the calculation result.. yet it has different value than expected?!
Why, ho why? And how?
I think the forces that be are preventing me from finding the truth!
That's the only logical explanation I can come up with!
The problem with stepping through the whole algorithm manually is that there is too much data and raw numerical values don't make much sense to human eyes... it describe 2 potatoes intersection.. but when I look at the bezier's handle point values, it means little to me (except visually..)
FYI, trying to debug this vector graphic eraser issue
Anyway, just made a tiny bit more progress... In my structure I got, for some reason, an odd number of intersection (between 2 shapes)...
