p.s A disgusting move by BingLee using there @ilikebinglee twitter account to tell people they will donate $1 for every person who 'likes' their Facebook page. The donation is capped at $10,000. I'm not sure whose idea it was to do this but they should be sacked and Bing Lee should hang it's head in shame.
