Hi David,

To prevent Adam from "appearing to be" too stupid, let me do it for him. 
I've never used PG, though I've used FB a lot; so I barely know what you 
mean, and would need a bit more guidance to implement your suggestion; 
so, can you  be a bit more explicit, Like what is a PG filter, and how 
would you locate what you're suggesting be used?
