I entered into a annual contract that renews every year

I entered into a annual contract that renews every year automatically for another 12 months. In order for me to terminated it I must give them 90 days notice. 115 days prior to the end of the current contract I inquired how I could take advantage of a promotion that they offered regarding if you signed a one-year contract you can get one month free. At the time they told me that current customers could not take advantage of the offer. After looking closely at the terms and conditions I found I could take advantage and pushed this issue. Now 60 days since I initially inquired they are telling me that I could have taken advantage but I needed to have given them a 90 day notice to prevent my current contract from renewing at the end of November 2016 for another year automatically. I feel that I was misled by them telling me initially that I could not take up the offer.Is there any case law as to how I could justify that they misled me as to how I could've taken advantage of the free month back when I still had the option to give them a 90 day notice to terminate the automatic renewal?

A BLM punk is harassing me on facebook. I posted a comment

A BLM punk is harassing me on facebook. I posted a comment on Vermont University. He didn't like my comment and took one of my pictures from my page and reposted it for his own purposes and posted that I am a racist on this page. I like the picture. It is a picture of me and my mister at a Trump rally.But he took it without my permission. And he captioned it, posting that I am a racist.I nicely asked him to remove it, which is the only help I got from FB. His response was that he called me a racist and threatened to post my picture wherever he wanted.Do I have any recourse? I can't find any help from FB.Thank you
