I'm really resisting the urge to say what I really think about Friendster's current and past management. I think it speaks for itself.
Do you think they'll add a "bloggers need not apply" banner on their jobs page? I'm guessing not. Why? Because "you can work on social networking, but you cannot blog" just doesn't sound right, does it?
Now, pardon me while I got figure out how to cancel my Friendster account. I suggest you do the same.
Wow, that was easy! The image at the right (larger version) is what it looks like to cancel your friendster account because they fired an employee for blogging.
