The original Facebook was a great site.  There was absolutely no need to change it.  Zuckerberg just saw the money that was made available to MySpace and got fucking greedy.

I am especially amused by the fact that this policy has apparently been in place for the last ten years, and it's only now that people are noticing.

The whole thing, really, is kind of delicious.

I think they only just started enforcing it.

Nope. When a friend of mine came out as trans Facebook demanded all sorts of documents and shit from him to change his account name. this was about a year or so ago.

It was all so tedious he said FUCK IT and opened a new acct.

also i got a new wireless keyboard with the shallower keys (srsly the keyboard is tiny) and now I apparently don't have to worry about RAGE TYPING sounding like a machine gun and waking up the entire house with my insomniac habits.

I also am having to use spellcheck less and seem to have a faster more accurate typing speed. All of those things are pleasing to me :D

What happened is that someone started mass-reporting all of the drag queens in SF.

It was a major part of the appeal when I joined back in 2005. It was super small, and only available to people with certain university email addresses. You could search people you knew by their actual name, or even what department they were in, and there they were. It was actually really novel for the time.

Different time, though. Different site entirely. What was this super-cool feature, is now...exactly the opposite.

Yeah. There are a couple of social networking sites that basically took its place for schools, but I think the school has to subscribe to them.

No, my sister used to have an account for her cat. It was actually more amusing than it sounds... Facebook shut it down years and years ago.

I remember them doing that for pets. Wanted everyone to make pages for them instead of profiles.
Maybe they have the same mindset about people that want to use an alias?
