Facebook do now have a London office so I might just send them a very nice letter

I totally hate Facebook anyway, it's full of annoying, crappy, pointless applications and it's just turned into MySpace with a uniform layout. When I first joined in September 2005 and was open to a small number of University students then it was something special and worth talking about, but not now.

Forums are based around drama and that's what makes them exciting, if it was an orderly Q&A website it would just get boring real quick.
I feel the same way about facebook. When I first joined it really was something unique. It was a community that I wanted to be a part of. As it became more popular they, for some reason, felt they had to commercialize the whole project and go crazy with advertising and 3rd party applications. It just got so stupid. I don't understand how people even want to deal with that crap they shove down their throats every time they log on.
