One old farts opinion:

Why should we enable these creeps who exist solely for the purpose of collecting 
data on its users for sale to the highest bidder, or in some cases as a 
cruising site by pedophiles looking to score some underage action?  Doubt me?  
Google for facebook and calling home, facebook's user client ignores your 
wishes to keep quiet, and calls home to facebook, reporting all your web 
activities.

As one lady observed, scroom & the camel that rode in on them.

Ditto for reunion.com, a bro-in-laws winderz box was infected just this past 
week.  It bombed everyone in his address database.

All that stuff from linkedin etc that come in here gets fed to sa-learn -spam.

For everyone who thinks those are neat sites, just remember TANSTAAFL.
