Facebook Protests Swamp the Tubes

Following up on my Facebook-Beacon-is-the-devil post from a couple weeks ago, we now have a Facebook group that is protesting Facebook?  The possibilities for stack overflow via poorly-planned recursion are staggering.  I kid.  Here’s the group:

They have a link to a MoveOn.org petition that you can sign that will tell FB to bugger off.  Let’s hope they are successful and at the very least, FB provides an opt-in, vs. opt-out, mechanism for the new Beacon service.
