want a good reason to leave MySpace?

MySpace Deletes Largest Atheist Group in the World.



of course free-thinkers can still communicate over the internet, but relying on large, conservative corporations to host that communication can be dodgy.

me, I'm out of there.

if you leave MySpace, be sure to let them know why.

well, there's probably a way to contact them, but their "contact" page doesn't look promising..

It is owned by Rupert Murdoch right? Mr. Fox News? No wonder. It does stink.

yeah. I can't say it's terribly surprising. it just highlights that even on the internet, there's mainstream and there's underground.

which gives me an idea for a search engine.

hm.

That is INFURIATING. I now wish I had a MySpace account just so I could cancel it.

you could open one today and then cancel it in a sudden rage when you hear the news next week!

honestly, although it is outrageous, it's not all that surprising. I think that the left needs to establish its own ubiquitous presence on the internet. I don't know if it is possible to get as large as myspace without at some point bowing to corporate concerns, which seem inherently conservative because money slows down when you offend loudmouth groups.

on the other hand, I think they are losing a lot of users this way. it would probably be a good idea to write to the advertisers on myspace and let them know why you wont be using their services, either.
