Rapleaf has agreed to delete all UIDs in its possession, and they have agreed not to conduct any activities on the Facebook Platform (either directly or indirectly) going forward.

Translation: If Rapleaf wants to see the sun rise tomorrow, they will do *exactly* as we say.

Keep your focus on the ones that have a chance to succeed in IT. Your speech should start like this:

"Hey kids, you see Tommy and Butch over there? Yes, I agree, they are mean doo-doo heads. Does it make you mad because they keep kicking your butts out there on the playground? Yeah, I bet it does.

At this point, they should be putty in your hands.
