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.

another thing that I find to be completely wrong beyond comprehension is how employers are now using facebook as a tool to decide who to hire. I've learned that they will look up your name on facebook and judge you by your appearance and if they have access to your page, of course judge you by your conversations and photos. A guy who hires summer students to work in maintaining the cemeteries for the City of Lethbridge always checks facebook profiles of his applicants first and will look for girls who are good-looking to hire. A clever idea to have a crew that's easy on the eyes, but illegal by all measures.

and let's just leave it at that. We don't get that much pleasure from telling you how pathetic you are for still worrying about her. Honestly.
