...the ONLY reason they have the number of users that they do is because everyone's friends are on Facebook.

People do not like Facebook. They hate the lack of security, the constant changing of format, the increasingly annoying advertising, etc, etc, etc.

One day (and I believe it will be soon), a viable alternative will appear and their collective mass of users will leave practically overnight.

No one loves Facebook. Its not cool. Its just where everyone is hanging until something better comes along.

Can somebody please translate this summary to English.


I used the services of Google translate to change that unreadable gibberish into something much more understandable:

Provides a summary of responses to support requests, and Joel Tnanbhum ", in an attempt to court the thorny issue of damages in copyright law micropayment and MP3 files, Sony Music Entertainment, BMG Tnanbhum contrast, the U.S. Supreme Court notify".

In keeping with the spirit of Slashdot, for those interested in the technical details, I moved it from its original gibberish to Latin to Arabic to Japanese to Swahili to English.

You are most welcome.

Its Christmas Eve and I am really busy, so I only had time to skim the summary, but thats horrible that some kid got killed for his Nikes!!! Especially during this season its important we honor those killed so needlessly - even tho I am very busy, I am taking the time out to tweet in his honor, and post on Facebook my outrage at this kind of senseless violence! You all should do it too.
