    It's about time! I really hate all of this tracking stuff.

    Tracebook is nothing other than a huge honeypot. When are people going to get a clue and ditch this hideous site.

    Damn, I lost my Facebook passphrase and now I can't close my account. Had to send them one government-issue document to retrieve my account, but still nothing.

    Are you sure they actually do close your account? Sometime ago I heard they don't.

    Well, surely they will still have the data about everything I did. But still, it's way better than literally agreeing with their policies, at least once my account is closed I'm have no strings with Facebook.
