That goal was just ridiculous. They knew that well and just wanted to bump up the FB fan count. Pathetic...
If anything can go wrong, it will.

I think I heard of this facebook thing some years ago.  Is it still around?

Seriously, I'll look there if it's the only place to get a special offer, but if I need a fb account to do it, I won't, no matter how good the offer.

Actually if I thought there was a 1 in 1000 chance of winning a nice modern scope just by liking HP on Facebook, despite that I don't have a facebook account and never intend to, I'd have made a throwaway account just for that.
Yes, FB is stupid, wouldn't be caught dead, etc. But I think I could probably overcome the shame for that scope.

It's nice to see that Dave does have _some_ cynicism.

Collecting old scopes, logic analyzers, and unfinished projects.

Only quite kittens and funny dogs get that many likes on facebook.  What were they thinking?  I can understand using social media to help in marketing now but to base it only on liking a page with that high a quota was doomed to fail.
