"For quite some time now we've been trying to remind people that the internet
is not just Facebook. Unfortunately, this seems quite difficult for many people
-- especially policy makers -- to understand. We've discussed how the various
policy regulations (including some that Facebook now supports) will actually do
a lot more harm to all of us -- and we urge people to examine how various
policy proposals will impact tons of smaller sites and their users.
Indeed, I keep hearing from people in the policy world who are just...
basically mad at Facebook for screwing up so much stuff, so badly, that it's
going to end up destroying much of the rest of the internet. As we noted a few
years ago, Facebook's bad behavior may cause everyone to lose recess."
