Hilarious. You are quite the comedian. Unfortunately, on the desktop, OS X
is what Linux wants to be when it grows up.

Now, getting back to the main issue, what is going on here? Facebook is
evil? Google is evil? Seriously?

Who are you people? When did the minds of learned academics and theorists
become infested with such nonsensical religious mythology?

These are corporations operating in a pseudo-Capitalist economic system,
doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing. There is no such thing as
evil in this context, only logical self-interest.

You either regulate their behavior, or they will always do what is natural.
Evil has absolutely nothing to do with it.

These insane attempts to distinguish one corporation from another, and
ascribe to them personalities with ethical traits, is one of the saddest
manifestations of mental illness I have ever seen.

Why do people continue to delude themselves in this manner?
