        Not sure how they mean "terminate"... I guess it's best not to irritate them and find out since God is on their side.

    Religion get everywhere

    Myself and some friends created the first ever social network here in the UK back in 2000 - the long-gone everyonesconected.com. Before we admitted defeat (by the US-based friendster, myspace, facebook. etc.) and we pulled the plug it was overrun by Christians. Some of them weirdly decided that it was a Christian site and would start telling other users what they should and shouldn't post. At least this one actually is.

    Wet dream

    I can imagine a world where we have a social network for each annoying type of social group...fashionistas, religious people, guns lovers, cat lovers, LGBT XYZ groups, Vegetarians, Miley Cirus alike, (even my type of person), it would be such a peaceful place...

      We're almost there with dating sites. Farmers, cougars (not the Puma concolor kind), old people... seems like new ultra-specific sites are always showing up.

      OTOH: Isn't Miley Cyrus a gun loving, cat loving, vegetarian, LGBT, religious, fashonista?

    sin-free version of Facebook

    Does it also steal your personal information, or is it just the user who is not allowed to sin?

    Is it something that has a time limit on enjoyment then?
