Facebook users lash out at social
network after it ends their right to
vote on site´s privacy policy

Facebook has sparked hysteria among its users by proposing to remove their right to vote on changes to the rules which govern the site. The end to the site´s experiment in democracy marks an attempt to gain more control over its own future as it tries to build a robust business model for the future. But many users have reacted with fury, and attempted to protect themselves against changes to Facebook´s privacy policy by posting a lengthy--but useless--legal disclaimer on their own profile pages. Users hoping to stop the firm exploiting their data to make money will be disappointed to

I love it when liberal dictates slap other liberals.Privacy "rights´ are being chipped away at every day with the government looking for more ways to data mine people.There´s humongous clearing houses of data mining on just about everybody in this country from scouring public records,buying habits etc.One of their biggest jackpots is just knowing your party registration.

Guess what, I don´t need Facebook, the world doesn´t need Facebook. It´s not essential to life on the planet.

Somebody, anybody else can start a new, more free social network.

I especially don´t like that little grinning, sloppily dressed dork, Mark Zuckerberg.

Don´t use it, never have. I sincerely doubt that the rest of the world is interested in my daily life or anyone elses for that matter. I am continually amazed at the personal information and pictures that some people (mostly kids) post on this site. Someone should tell them that once its on line, its there forever. I know people who didn´t get jobs because their prospective employer perused their Facebook Page and didn´t like what they saw. I also don´t like the over usage of the work "like" on Facebook and in the language of our children. "Do you like know what I´m like talking about?"

Never did get sucked into the FB web. They always seemed to be too nosy for my liking. And right, who is really interested in every detail of your life? Most days I am not interested in my own life it is so bland.

Already disabled my account and stopped the emails. They still try to sneak emails to me. I never trusted FB from the beginning so I limited what I put there. I see that was wise.

Geez... Facebook sells everything about you including your photos to anyone. The guy who runs the company committed massive stock fraud this past year.

I had an account briefly at the urging of a relative. I hated it. And that was about three years ago. Anyhoo, after about six months, I deleted my account and haven´t been back. Everything about the site just screams DANGER DANGER to me.

Faceboook revolutionized the concept of a "Social Network" but its business model is built on quick sand. It will be ancient history in 5 years.

Simple solution: Don´t like FB´s rules? Don´t use FB. End of discussion. There is life after and without FB.

FB is great for people like me with certain causes, and also great for me socially - I have a lot of far-flung friends. It´s shocking how little privacy that is left - as soon as I even think about a product almost, it appears as a FB ad. I take my chances though and have for years. Besides, the lack of privacy applies to everyone who does a lot of other things online as well, even if not on FB; it´s just not in your face as much.

I also love it for my photos. All my pictures are there - and for my purposes, forget about Flickr, Picasa, etc., etc. More complications, and I don´t need them.

Who remembers My Space? How about Friendster? Uh huh. I´m on fb because its an easy way to stay in touch with some people who aren´t really close friends. But I think that something better will come along, accomplish the same thing, probably better, and be much more user friendly.

I have a FB page so we(actually Mrs. Holliday) can see the current grandkid/family pictures that the other relatives post. It has my age and name but no picture and I have never posted anything.

The email I used when signing up is one of my ´trashcatcher´ emails. I noticed that the spam increased markedly after I got signed up. I really don´t trust FB on anything.

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. [Snip] It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us. We can predict forward up to two solar cycles, that is about twenty-two years into the future. When models of solar activity are further refined, we may be able to predict climate

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming

With her twinkling eyes and beaming smile, it is hard to believe Her Majesty will mark her 88th birthday tomorrow. This portrait of the Queen, taken by celebrated British photographer David Bailey CBE, was released today ahead of the occasion. It shows the monarch smiling at the camera - while donning a pearl necklace, earrings and a brooch. Her jewellery is accompanied by a simple dress by Angela Kelly, who has served as the Queen´s personal assistant and senior dresser since 2002. The black-and-white photograph was taken at Buckingham Palace in March and commissioned on behalf of the Government´s GREAT

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

Here we are again, facing Russia across the barricades. How did that happen? Only five minutes ago, the West was celebrating the collapse of Soviet communism: a historic victory which had been achieved without a shot being fired. Russia would now join the free world as a capitalist economy, with something like democratic institutions. [Snip] The mistake, of course, was to think that the Cold War was about what it suited all the parties to present it as being: an ideological argument, a battle of ideas, a contest between philosophies of how men should live.

A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line--meatballs--in order to help save the world from global warming. [Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that´s not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don´t know what is. What´s worse, though, is that IKEA actually admits to allowing the kind of food it serves in its restaurants

White House blames fox for
destroying Michelle’s garden

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
