Say what you like about web2.0 ...

... but people do listen:

Over the past few days, we have received a lot of feedback about the new terms we posted two weeks ago. Because of this response, we have decided to return to our previous Terms of Use while we resolve the issues that people have raised. For more information, visit the Facebook Blog.

If you want to share your thoughts on what should be in the new terms, check out our group Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.

An object lesson there for politicians of all stripes: admit you fucked up, roll back to the previous model and rethink your case.

I will rephrase Jay.

Facebookers can leave Facebook for Bebo or Myspace or whatever. Today. Now.

We have to wait until some gormless, rumpled, sociopathic, trouser-dampening slackjaw decides to "allow" us a choice, and even then the alternative has no intention of changing the T&C's in any meaningful way.
