Facebook privacy issues: Facebook's Double Standards Regarding Spam and Privacy

Facebook claims to take strong stands against spam. A handful of friends of the JIDF have been temporarily disabled for sending too many messages from time to time. Some have been temporarily blocked from sending messages. Some have been disabled for adding too many friends. (Isn't that was the whole point of "social networking"?) It has been reported that there are many security concerns through various Facebook apps. Many people and comp0anies are developing them. When you add an application, you are oftentimes opening the door for security and privacy concerns on you Facebook account, and possibly your computer in general. You are giving access to much of the information in your Facebook account to the folks who developed the application. You might also be putting your friends' privacy at risk. For this reason, we block nearly all application invites. We get a handful of them a day. Annoying. We feel that all the application invites are the same, if not worse, than spam--especially when Facebook application development is big business. The following is a list of applications we have decided to block:
