Leaving is better, but if someone*doesn't*  leave, they should at least

Comments may be good, I agree. For instance you can comment when somebody makes an announcement or opens a conversation which excludes people who don't use Facebook, pointing out the problems. You can also comment on posts which violate copyleft, which are plenty: <>. On the other hand it's difficult to do this while claiming you're not on Facebook.

Never comment on misleading posts or posts you disagree with, because activity and controversy make them more visible.

I agree that it's likely they overall bury anti-FB posts, but
who knows, it's a black box.
