The decision is sparking an outcry from those who say the policy goes way too far. An excerpt from city application form states: "Please list any and all current personal or business Web sites, Web pages or memberships on any Internet-based chat rooms, social clubs or forums, to include, but not limited to: Facebook, Google, Yahoo, YouTube.com, MySpace, etc." The city argues that it only uses the information to verify application information — and says it won't hold it against anyone who refuses. City officials say such checks can be useful, especially when hiring police officers and others in a position of public trust."
