    I have said this time and time again, if you don't want your private information on the Internet, don't put it there.

    If you don't want Facebook using your private information, don't sign up for Facebook, or at the very least don't sue Facebook because you don't understand how it works. They have a very clear policy that states that they can use whatever information you choose to input into their site in whatever way they choose, unless you go into your settings and revoke permissions for them to do so.

    Those who complain about Facebook's privacy settings act like it is a government run program or something, it's not. Facebook is a private website and they can set up their site however they deem fit. They shouldn't have to bend over backwards because some people are too stupid to figure out how to use it. There are millions and millions of people of average intelligence who use Facebook without any problems.

    People like this should not be allowed on the Internet.

    I agree, facebook is all about sharing your privacy, meaning is not private anymore. You would think social networking sites are retard-proof.

    But if I get rid of my Facebook, how will I make fun of my 'friends' that I have no chance of ever meeting again?

    I have never agreed to anything you said more.
    I didn't want my personal information on Facebook,so I shut down my Facebook. (Well,part of it was because I hate Facebook) My only regret is using my real name on my Skype due to my own misunderstanding. I could shut it down and open a new one,but I don't feel like re-adding people. If anything were to ever happen due to this (highly unlikely) I will not go around blaming Skype for my own stupidity. It is no ones fault but my own.

    I'm not sure if its better to condemn 'private information' sharing all around or let the idiots be idiots...

    Either way, I think its better to learn from our mistakes.

    I'm not surprised, americunts love frivolous lawsuits. If you ask me, there should be a law that carries extreme penalties for the filer of a lawsuit if they don't win.

    There's already one...you have to pay the legal expenses if you lose

    I get what you say, the situation in the e.g. USA is ludicrous long time ago...but think about the posible abuses if there were penalties for losing a trial...no average income Joe would ever dare to sue anybody

    You should do a weekly youtube segment where you sync your lines with a small black cat.
