when they demoed all the new functionality they were proposing, and my
comment was that they were trying to be FB. I thought it was an
interesting idea then, but the practical reality is that I like to
keep these functions separate, as well. Nevermind, that the Y!G team
doesn't have even as much of a clue as FB as to how to implement these
changes, and anybody whose been on FB for the last year knows how
[ummm] awkward FB's developers are at rolling out changes.

correctly when I add someone... I'll decide if we're "connected." FB
has a better handle on the nuances of privacy, but it is hopeless at
mail and discussion group management. I'd hate for Y! to give up what
it's good at in an attempt to be FB, because it might be even worse at it.
