MySpace Deletion

First, the How:
1. Goto myspace.com and login
2. Click the Home link (first link on the left under the banner ad at the top)
3. Click Account Settings link
4. Under Change Account Settings, click the -Cancel Account- link
5. Click the Cancel My Account button to confirm removal

Now, the Why:
MySpace is endorsing bigoted assholes, spam bots and general ass hattery.  After deletion of a 30,000 member atheist group, they kinda just shrugged their shoulders and said “meh”.  So, since I don’t want to manage that crap anymore, off it goes.  If you were a friend of MCS on myspace, um, well you should have been commenting on MCS instead of that MySpace crap anyways.

    2. so they just deleted the group and not the profiles?

      that is still douche-baggery. i myself, am a theist, and whole heartedly disagree with the whole atheist beleif system.

      however, i am waaaaay more passionate about freedom of thought and speech and ideas than i am about god and such.

    3. Well, natedog, while I do appreciate your revival of the old term and, possibly, the eighteenth century upanishad-inspired transcendental philosophy movement that went with it, I have to wonder what that does with anything, asside from whatever I can read into it about Rupert Murdoch, for example:
      1) Are you strongly against Rupert Murdoch’s unethical corporate practices in the past, such as making descisions without the consent of major shareholders?
      2) Do you feel that photobucket is kind of lame now, but it’s still the lesser of multiple evils and you live in fear of accidently posting tubgirl on some forum?
      3) Do you feel Murdoch is involving Rasta in his say say, and Rasta don’t work for no NSWa?
      4) Do you feel that Rotten Tomatoes is lame because it allows anyone with a domain on? Because that is a bit crap right? I mean, half those people are nut jobs. Rotten Tomatoes tells me nothing more about weather or not I’ll like a movie than, say, Google.

      Anyway, I feel the biggots and teen angstheists should learn to live together in peace on Myspace, because whatever content they manage to squeeze in between their frame-breaking non-design and their blaring indie metal/shitty hip-hop is easier to ignore when it’s all in one place.

    4. no, my point is that rupert and his conglomerate own your ass.

      i think people should be allowed to have whatever group they choose to have, without some billionaire fucking it all up.

    7. As much as I’ve come to despise MySpace in the past several months, and this pisses me off incredibly, I think boycotts are retarded, and from what I’ve seen, an ineffectual means of protest. I never use my account anyway.

    8. I will do my part by first creating an account and then immediately deleting it.

    9. MySpace didn’t just delete the “Atheist and Agnostic” group, but they deleted the profiles of its most prominent members.

      While it is lame to delete profiles, I think it is equally lame to bitch about being deleted from a free site owned by FOX. I mean, it’s FOX! They should create their own site instead of relying on a site created and maintained by a third party who is obviously not happy about their existence.

    12. there is no need to protest by deleting accounts, just see who actually use it and spend all day posting there, retards, pedos and 13 year olds. that’s more protest than anything.

    13. Especially the ones that make me lol are those extreme left groups with profiles on my space, with their che guevara and fidel castro pics.

    14. MySpace is the trailer park of the internet. The rest of us with actual houses are over on Facebook.

      OK, so what does that make me if I have both a mobile home as well as a house?

    17. Alec, it’s pretty much impossible to imagine you not living at your mum’s (thosands of one word posts consisting of nothing but ‘gay’ places you in the 12-15 range), which makes me think weather you should be using smug fisical security metaphores or not.

    19. Good to hear ya NateDog! I’m theist also. My father was a preacher… got the picture. They should at least respect the Atheist beliefs. What I believe is that early man made religion in order to control the rest of us. Man’s religion sucks Royally! God still exists in whatever way you choose to believe. Just don’t cram your belief down my throat. Thanks Tiki for bringing this out! Never had an account and never will!!!
