The End of Facebook...

...for me, anyhow.  If you follow my blog, then you already know that I committed Facebook suicide long before.  The message below puts the proverbial nail on the coffin.  And am I glad.

Hi Dominique,

Your account was disabled because your behavior on the site was identified as harassing or threatening to other people on Facebook. Prohibited behavior includes, but is not limited to:

• Sending friend requests to people you don't know
• Regularly contacting strangers through unsolicited Inbox messages
• Soliciting others for dating or business purposes

After reviewing your situation, we have determined that your behavior violated Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. You will no longer be able to use Facebook. This decision is final and cannot be appealed.

Please note that for technical and security reasons, we will not provide you with any further details about this decision.

Thanks,

Marissa

I asked about my account a few months ago when they disabled it, not with the intent of reactivating it but so that I'd be sure I properly deleted it.

I'm less than thrilled at what they accuse me of because, well, none of it is true.  My response to them:

I have done none of the things you listed below. But I was in the process of deleting my photos when you disabled my account. Nevertheless, I had already unfriended all my contacts, so that's all right. That's the end I was looking for anyway, I just want to be sure my account is properly deleted.  

Without enmity or sarcasm, let me say that life without Facebook has been great. I felt great relief and satisfaction after you took away my access.

You will make sure my account is deleted, will you? Thanks.

"You will no longer be able to use Facebook" Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
