Facebook disabled my account

Per chi non lo conoscesse, Scobleizer (Vice President of Media Development) è uno dei personaggi più attivi sulla rete. Analizza nuove tendenze e le studia in modalità entomologica ogni nuovo strumento del web 2.0.

Ci comunica, oggi, che Facebook lo ha fatto fuori dai suoi sistemi.

Cito il suo articolo:

If you are trying to contact me on Facebook, please don’t. My account has been “disabled” for breaking Facebook’s Terms of Use. I was running a script that got them to keep me from accessing my account. I’m appealing. I’ll tell you what I was doing as soon as I talk with the developers who built what I was using and as soon as I talk with Facebook’s support (I sent an email in reply to the one below, but haven’t heard back yet).

I run this stuff so you don’t have to. :-)

UPDATE: Rodney Rumford, who runs the FaceReviews Blog about Facebook says that all traces of me have been already removed from Facebook too.

UPDATE2: Tonight I learned about DataPortability.org and signed my name to that effort.

I am working with a company to move my social graph to other places and that isn’t allowable under Facebook’s terms of service. Here’s the email I received:
