A frequent contributor wrote in to say:
The Harvard-spawned fascists who control facebook.com apparently have begun purging the site of one of its best features: funny profiles.
It seems they decided that Aaron Burr didn’t do his job properly the first time (did you expect any better from a Princeton alum?) and deleted Alexander Hamilton’s profile. Over 1200 Columbians and 1000 other students nationwide lost a dear friend. I attempted to log in today and received this gloating error message: “Your account has been disabled by an administrator. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.”
Who’s next? Barack Obama? Peter Parker? John Jay? The Man? Alma Mater? YOU? Where will they draw the line?
