Facebook blocks social network eraser website

Facebook has sent a 'cease-and-desist' letter to another website, Seppukoo.com, that deletes profiles, friends and other information on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn for users who provide their account information

Social network website Facebook has said that it is blocking a website called 'Web 2.0 Suicide Machine' that helps users delete their social network profiles, reports PTI.

The number one social network also said that it had sent a 'cease-and-desist' letter to another website, Seppukoo.com, which also helps you erase your virtual identity from the Internet.

The Web 2.0 Suicide Machine site, which features a hangman's noose on its homepage, deletes profiles, friends and other information on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn for users who provide their account information.

"This machine lets you delete all your energy sucking social-networking profiles, kills your fake virtual friends, and completely does away with your Web2.0 alter ego," it says.

Facebook, in a statement to AFP, said the suicide site was in violation of Facebook rules.

"Facebook provides the ability for people who no longer want to use the site to either deactivate their account or delete it completely," the social network service provider said.

"Web 2.0 Suicide Machine collects login credentials, which is a violation of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR)," it said.

"We've blocked the site's access to Facebook as is our policy for sites that violate our SRR," Facebook said. "We're currently investigating and considering whether to take further action," it added.

    SOCIAL NETWORKING IS JUST AN ESCAPE FOR SHEEPLE WHO CANNOT COPE WITH HARSH REALITIES LIKE THIS:

    [ Source: tinyurl.com/false-flag-yemen ] Another False Flag Operation: Black Bloomer Bomber Bungle is Bogus. Following the preordained pathway and modus operandi of his predecessor, USA Puppet President Barack "MoDubya" Obama has declared that 23-year-old banker's son and black bloomer bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had ties in Yemen to "al-Qaeda", the CIA-fabricated global network of boogeymen whose "terrorist cells" conveniently pop up wherever and whenever "they"--the consortium of Wall Street Banksters, Peak Oil Gangsters, and Military-Industrial Profiteers who rule America--need an excuse to take the rights, resources, livelihoods and lives away from yet another sovereign nation or innocent group of people. But choose your source, left or right, the message in the links below is the same: After secretly evacuating Yemen's Jews from harm's way (WSJ tinyurl.com/yhtf4mc), on Christmas Day 2009 "they"--most likely through intelligence operatives--staged the failed attempt at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport to blow up Detroit-bound Delta/Northwest Airlines flight 253, using that pitiful London-educated Nigerian patsy to provide the pretext for (a) extending Big Brother's No-Fly List, (b) renewing the Patriot Act, and (c) expanding our global war for peak oil and profit into Yemen.
