No way we'd trust them again after that! Their attorneys must carefully craft any change to their privacy policy, I'm sure. They tried to slip it in under the radar and failed; now they're just trying to cover their butts. My boyfriend, a webcomic artist, won't get a Facebook account, has deleted his Photobucket account, and took all his art off his MySpace--not to mention deleted the MySpace page of his star character--because of this debacle. Way to go, Facebook, for really bolstering the case for social networking.
