Note to pundits and train-hoppers

Facebook is a borg.

possessing the single-minded intent to “assimilate” other species

Can you cancel a Facebook account? Brian Oberkirch has deactivated the juggernaut of the Faceborg pseudo-service:

Many, many of my colleagues are far too sanguine about FaceBorg. They are condescending about people’s privacy concerns. They mistake a lack of awareness or inaction with consent. They act as though the clumsiest brand presence schemes are breakthrough marketing. They abandon the open principles that built the Web in the first place. FaceBorg is the Golden Calf of the Valley. & you can have it.

In no way do I want to support something that is so contra my love of the Web or so against the principles I espouse about how to treat people using a service you build.
