So, what do you think?
Anyone who was a friend of Scoble’s now wants to seriously clean up their friends list?
Anyone want to accuse Scoble of theft of data?
Or send a Cease and Desist for Plaxo to verify eternal delete of all of your data from their servers?
Do you think if it had been anyone but an A-List Blogger that he’d be let back in?
Honestly, after the big stink up about Dave Winer neglecting to secure his data before sending his laptop in for repair, you’d think there’d be more of a stink here.
FaceBook is not the bad guy here. Plaxo is. They conspired with Scoble, a FaceBook member, to steal 5000 identities and store them on their own servers.
According to the US Government, this is a Federal Crime.
The Code now makes possession of any “means of identification” to “knowingly transfer, possess, or use without lawful authority” a federal crime, alongside unlawful possession of identification documents.
