  • Their service, their rules.

    What value do you get out of facebook anyway? I deleted my account (well, they don't let you delete, so it's "deactivated") because I'm sure it would be fun if I was 16, but I'm not.
    • Their service, their rules.

      That's absolutely true. But I still find it a bit weird that they should feel the need to tell everybody how they should be called when it is essentially a "social" site. It's flavour of the month now, but these sort of sites are popping up all the time, and I would not like others to follow suit.

      As to what value I get out of Facebook, that's a very difficult one to answer. I've found it fun and a nice way to connect with people I've met at conferences and the like. It's a more informal LinkedIn, a basic Flickr and an alternative Yahoo Groups all in one.

      I would consider this rule a bit sinister if I believed the people who thought it up were that rigorous in culling accounts with dubious names.

      I just hope other future sites bear in mind that people like me, are not that difficult to accommodate.

      • "I sent the club a wire stating, Please accept my resignation. I don't want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member."

        But he was probably playing fast and loose with the facts. The club was probably not accepting him, seeing he was Jewish.
