These people suck and part of their suckiness is that they can do crazy sh*t like this and walk away without any guilt. You being upset with them does not affect them at all so its time to let it go.
Whenever I get pissed at people I just try to remember that only I can control how I feel. If I decide someone sucks I also decide not to care about them or their actions any more.
People get away with sh*tty behavior in the real world, if you are looking for “justice” you may be waiting forever. Easier to try to be a good person yourself comforted by the knowledge that these people will continue to be miserable and alienate people until they are completely alone.

I think you should decide whether it’s really worth getting justice on someone else. You want to move on, but that can never happen while you’re involved with Facebook drama or otherwise trying to get back at the other person.
You have to decide if you want to move on or if you want to get back at them (i.e, “justice”). You seem to be focused on the latter. That’s a choice you can make, but it’s pretty incompatible with moving on.
If it were me, and I have had family drama, I disengage completely. The other person has no power over me. I simply won’t address it. Others see that I am rising above it rather than stooping to the level of the instigator.
Seriously, though, ranting on Facebook will never allow you to move on.

When I’m really angry I workout, take a drive, walk, bike ride, and just get it out (or even just listen to really loud angry music). It helps.

Thanks honeymead. That’s kinda what I am looking for.
And no one is ranting on FB. That was the 1 and only time. And that was the only way to get the msg across to these ppl. Talking doesn’t help at all. Drastic changes = drastic measures. That’s all it was. No one is putting up sob stories or updates, etc. It was one clean shot that hit the mark. Besides, if it were really wrong, the rest of my aunts/uncles would voice their opinion to us and make us take it down, etc. No. The encouraged to leave it up cuz they know how these ppl are too. And they are related to them the same way we are.
