> Rotterdam, 18th of February 2010
> Facebook excommunicates WORM because of the Web2.0 Suicide Machine
> It is with great sorrow that we announce that Facebook Inc. has  
> decided that WORM, the producer of the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine,  
> will be excommunicated from Facebook.
> The initiative to build the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine came from  
> Moddr_, WORM’s media lab. By threatening WORM, Facebook is trying  
> to take down the Suicide Machine.
> The Web 2.0 Suicide Machine allows users of - among others -  
> Facebook to commit ‘social network suicide’. Facebook threatens  
> WORM with further legal action if WORM doesn’t stop targeting the  
> FaceBook platform via the SuicideMachine. In addition, it has now  
> also demanded that WORM immediately deletes its own Facebook  
> profile (WORM_Rotterdam). According to Facebook and its lawyer, the  
> Web 2.0 Suicide Machine has violated Facebook’s Terms of Service  
> and with that WORM has forfeited it’s right to keep using the  
> platform. WORM does not want to engage in a fight over this matter  
> with Facebook. The idea behind the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine was to  
> be able to ‘unfriend’ in an automated fashion and to make users of  
> social networks aware that they should always be in control of  
> their own data. Facebook won’t allow for this control and is also  
> not willing to enter into this debate. We are pretty much done with  
> that and are left with no other choice than to commit online  
> suicide ourselves. The conditions and attitude of Facebook leave no  
> other option as far as WORM is concerned.
> WORM deeply regrets the current situation. The web 2.0 Suicide  
> Machine was never intended to target Facebook as such, but meant as  
> a tool for people who, for whatever reason, are tired of their  
> online life. Facebook wants all access to their service, personal  
> data of their users included, to run via their own ‘connect’  
> platform. In this way, Facebook can set, interpret and change its  
> own rules as it sees fit...
> The excommunication of WORM illustrates that data freedom and net  
> neutrality of users is merely an illusion on many social network  
> sites. Not only is it not allowed for people to unfriend (in an  
> automated manner), but companies also have the power to expel users  
> they do not like. Facebook shows that a user only has the rights  
> that Facebook grants it.
> Facebook claims all rights. WORM does not want to continue living  
> in this 2.0 world. Which is why we say goodbye to all our friends.  
> We wish you all the best.
> No flowers, no speeches.
