"It's like the Hotel California... You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."

That would be... Facebook.

Yes, because the Eagles are such an appropriate comparison to one of those new-fangled Interweb thingies the kids are on about!

Even if they let you supposedly "delete" your account, the dirty little secret is that you will still nevertheless live forever in archived backups.

Through the the last half of the 90s I operated a internet shell and web service provider, with about 7,000 users worldwide. I still have complete archives of all user files, including all emails sent and received.

Nothing is truly permanently deleted once it's been on the internet. At least precious very little is.

Heheh!

"And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
The stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast"


They talking about Facebook, or MSN with that lyric?? :^}
