The last few days there's been an uproar on Facebook.com over a chance in their terms of service. The new rules suggested that facebook would own the content people posted on the site, even personal information after the person closed out their account.

The old saying goes, "Where there's smoke there's fire." Well, where there are bad, no, make that lousy rules, where some dumb lawyer comes in and screws up what's been working, there is a Bush connection.

It wasn't John Yoo, the guy who justified torture and who will hopefully, probably, if millions of peoples prayers are answered, be disbarred.

But it was a Whitehouse legal goon. According to Owen Thomas, of Valleywag, on Gawker.com,
"Amid this PR storm, no one has pointed out the real issue here, which is that the guy masterminding these legal changes is Ted Ullyot, who previously worked in the Bush Administration under then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, surrounded by coworkers who unabashedly defended torture and shredded the Bill of Rights. Amazing, isn't it, that people are talking about a site's legal boilerplate, rather than the guy who Zuckerberg picked to enforce it?

Got that? When you're looking at hiring someone and you see a Bush connection, better think twice before making an offer. Or even if there's a stretch of time between 2000 and 2008... you never know, you might end up with someone who learned to think like Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld... Is that something you want? I'm guessing facebook's founder, Mark Zuckerberg is having his regrets right about now.
