BOYCOTT FACEBOOK NOW
Mark Zuckerberg is not your friend. He isn't a genius either, just in the right place at the right time, like Bill Gates. He went to gee-wow Harvard, did you fall for that come-on like Bill Gates used to use? Both of them dropped out without learning anything, but forever used the name for their marketing cachet, you are pitched the H-word in their every intro, it works in the blink of an eye. No coincidence, Mark Zuckerberg is a wannabe Bill Gates with designs on an eternal monopoly in social networking, which would result in a new Dark Ages like Gates did with operating systems, but that's just for starters. His immature selfish whats-in-it-for-me practices starting with ripping off the Winklevii then trampling personal and privacy rights of his zucker users to position himself for riches no matter whom he hurts are despicable, and are indicative of much worse to come, which is just one reason he must be stopped.
Isn't it just too easy to sign up and get started in their closed fool's paradise where they have all the rights and you're at their mercy? The immediate threat of Facebook is that it lures people into a private Internet of its own with no universal resource locators (urls), ruining the original concept while swallowing you up into their world where they have all the rights and you have all the risks. If your account is closed by Facebook, you disappear from the Internet, while their fine print gives them eternal ownership of all data you input to their ZuckerBase, what a Devil's bargain. And what recourse do you have if they boot you out of their fool's paradise but to grovel and beg?
But it's far worse than it appears on the disturbing surface, because all the signals are there that he wants to rule the world as the Antichrist, for instance, keeping the company private and wanting everybody to give up their privacy to him and him alone, like in Revelation 13:16 where it says he will put his mark on everybody's forehead and no one will be able to buy or sell without the Mark of the Beast = Mark ZuckerBeast.
And when it says forehead it means forehead. As of 2011 Facebook has FACE RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY built into its software, identifying everybody from their photos. What a convenient feature... for the ANTICHRIST!
But Mark Zuckerberg is just a young schmuck who wears a hoodie, totally harmless? Remember Emperor Caligula in that 1979 movie? He started out as a cute Roman boy who wore army boots. Forget the old theories that Bill Gates was the Antichrist, this could be the dude. Gates just kept holding you back with horrible buggy software that you had to pay for again and again under the guise of new versions, but Mark Zuckerberg can get you where you live by owning and using your private data at will, forever, without any ability to protect yourself or your loved ones.
If you still don't get it, the government is readily granting Facebook numerous patents on such basic stuff as location social networking, even a trademark on "Face" (even your face!), bolstering their monopoly status. Why? Because once everybody has given Facebook all their private data, all the government has to do is go after them, under or over the table, to get it and use it to create George Orwell's feared Big Brother as portrayed in his novel 1984. The news of the Goldman Sachs investment might raise the specter of international bankers finally getting their hands on your private data too. Even if the government doesn't go after them, Facebook might one day get big enough to go after the government, which could become the ultimate nightmare, your decision to keep your account was an easy one?
For these reasons no future user-supportable social networking site should be able to get your private data, it should be set up so that not even they can access it without your permission, probably via public key encryption. So how much private data have you given to Facebook so far? We need to abandon the monopolistic Facebook ZuckerBeast model for a new social network model based on our own urls that we own and control.
Speaking of the early 1980s, if you could go back and buy Microsoft's competitors' operating systems, wouldn't you, to stop Gates? Well wake up and stop the ZuckerBeast, or you will live to rue these happy days when you failed to act. The only way to stop Mark Zuckerberg and his horrible Highway to Hell cold is to FLEE THE ZUCKERBEAST AND BOYCOTT FACEBOOK by deleting your account after telling your social network to do ditto, in hopes that a saner, safer, more democratic alternative will arise that connects everybody with proper safeguards against megalomaniac people and groups, public and private.
Revelation 13:16-18 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the MARK, or the name of the BEAST, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).
If you're still on Facebook you're a zucker!
Facebook is like that Twilight Zone episode "To Serve Man": you will end up being consumed by it. It will end up like that Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet": you will have to risk your life to get out of it, if you're smart enough to see the danger before it's too late, and be called crazy for doing it and most likely be hauled away in a straightjacket. Facebook is like The Matrix, it will end up becoming the world to you while zucking you dry, yes sir, the only exit I got near you is the Winslow Overpass. If Revelation 13:16-18 has a meaning, Zuckerberg and Facebook are it, a horrible end to all personal privacy offered free like a Trojan Horse, or like addictive drugs.
Too bad, while Facebook has 1 billion zuckers and growing daily, this little warning site seems to only get a handful of new users every time they get a million, the smart ones in a million who will be saved when the ZuckerBeast closes the trap. Don't be sorry later, spread the message to those you love and give them this link. Think voice crying in the wilderness, locusts and wild honey. No, don't put this url on your Facebook page! Okay do, but only as long as it takes to alert your zuckered social network and delete your account. How sad from where I stand to see "Facebook.com" hitting this site - while the zuckers trapped inside think they're in charge.
Flee the ZuckerBeast!
Think airport body scanners are bad? If I set up a Web site that asked you to dump your mind to me and sign a release saying I own the data, would you do it, or would you flee my trap fast? So why do you keep your Facebook account? Don't even cattle have an inkling when they're herded into the slaughterhouse? So why does everyone seem to be queueing up to let the NSA, CIA, and who knows what sinister government agencies get their innermost thoughts and secrets without a fight? Humans: the most intelligent life on Earth, what's in your wallet, moo? Flee the ZuckerBeast now and feel the relief.
"Facebook in particular is the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented. Here we have the world’s most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations and the communications with each other, their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to US intelligence. Facebook, Google, Yahoo – all these major US organizations have built-in interfaces for US intelligence. It’s not a matter of serving a subpoena. They have an interface that they have developed for US intelligence to use." - Julian Assange
Alternatives to Horrible Facebook Forming Fast
Did you ever hear about somebody having their Facebook account summarily closed without any notice, hearings, jury, or due process of any kind? It happens all the time, even Roger Ebert. After that, you don't even have an account to log onto and post an appeal. Meanwhile they keep all the data on your closed account that only they can access, and use it for any purpose, without recourse. You might have spent years building a social network, and now it's gone, except not really, they have it and can use it, not you. Why do they never issue warnings when they decide that something you uploaded is objectionable and give time to reply or delete it yourself? Why do they go for summary deletion of accounts? Why don't they just delete objectionable content and let you keep your account? They could even restrict your posting privileges after multiple violations, but let you keep your account. Answer: Because they keep everything and stop you from stopping them! It was never a democracy, it was an autocracy, and you're nothing to them, it's about numbers and power and money. If you think it was bad when done to you or a friend of yours, multiply it by a billion zuckers and terabytes of free private data and see what the evil of Facebook is all about, mwuhahaha, give me the sheep shears.
Big laugh: On July 3, 2011 they finally let out a news release about how nobody should "worry" when this is done to them, giving procedures for reinstating your account. This after untold numbers suffered deleted accounts for years and Google finally released their Facebook-killer Google+. And of course they didn't automatically email the deleted zuckers this info. and provide links for corrective action, any more than they emailed them with a warning before they pulled their plugs, because we get it, after all, Facebook is in the lives of over umpteen zillion American zuckers. Don't buy anything the ZuckerBeast tells you, boycott it forever until it is dead dead dead!
Bottom line: Why rely on such an unstable evil platform run by untrustworthy losers? Why not just save time and delete your account after warning your social network to do ditto and maybe suggest a new platform such as SocialGo that they can move to, where your rights are more than fart gas out of Zuckerberg's gigabuck butt? Hopefully more apps will appear that let you move all your Facebook friends to Google+ and other platforms where Zuckerberg's shadow won't fall on you.
Google+ is a clear improvement over Facebook. Too bad, they also require real names, and are deleting users with aliases, but since I don't think of them as the Beast, maybe they will smarten up and allow aliases for public use, as in profiles etc., for those who provide their real identity, like computer bulletin boards used to do.
Facebook is like the evil Sauron of Mordor in The Lord of the Rings, an all-seeing evil eye that seeks to dominate and ultimately crush all life. The quest for the ownership and control of Facebook is like the quest for the One Ring, which absolutely corrupts all who seek to possess it - nobody associated with it can ever be trusted.
Time for a hero to arise? The One, like in The Matrix? The best way to destroy the Facebook monopoly would be for an insider or hacker to upload the site's software around the Internet, allowing anybody to use it to set up their own clone site. Think of it as as Facebook WikiLeaks. All social networking sites should be non-profit like Wikipedia, to take the greed and lust for power out of the equation, and open up a golden era for the Internet. Let's hope the hero just uploads the software, not the private data, which would be a V for Sauron - no, like the One Ring, the data must be cast into the fires of Mordor and destroyed, if possible, but at least not spread outside Facebook's Mount Doom. Not that a clone site that starts out with zero content then zuckers you into adding all the content while giving them all rights to use it as they see fit is worth cloning, but if 90% of their users opted to splinter into clone sites, ending the monopoly, and they had saner terms of service, the ZuckerBeast would be dead, for now - aspiring ZuckerBeasts would be relegated to tiny kingdoms instead of owning the whole world.
