Facebook defended themselves on Wednesday saying they "believe the lawsuit is without merit and will defend ourselves vigorously."
Well, they got BILLIONS ... shouldn't be hard to buy a few favorable opinions.

Don't forget that FB tracks your movements throughout the web so they can target you with ads. Logging out doesn't stop it. You have to delete cookies.

Google already targets me in my gmail. I don't really care. Facebook just bores me.

Yabbut if you use Firefox you can have the Adblock Plus add-on free which hids all ads from your FB experience. It's so refreshing!

"I wish facebook would fail completely and forever."

I do believe that's a wish that'll come true...

Wooohoooooo! This is better than the Nerf Frisbee I won from Clubhouse 22s Pick-a-Door.

Wishes DO come true! (wishing really hard: some crazy person I don't know dies and leaves me 500 acres of animal reserve (preserve?) to run, plus a big old house and a swimming pool.) Too much?

Excellence is THE trend of the '80s. Walk into any shopping mall bookstore, go to the rack where they keep the best-sellers such as "Garfield Gets Spayed", and you'll see a half-dozen books telling you how to be excellent: "In Search of Excellence", "Finding Excellence", "Grasping Hold of Excellence", "Where to Hide Your Excellence at Night So the Cleaning Personnel Don't Steal It", etc.
- Dave Barry, "In Search of Excellence"
