Suits and the Damage Done

FB is testing payment for post prominence, thus breaking the “always free promise”:

I have no problem with post promotion. I have a problem with paid post promotion. If this goes through, it will ruin Facebook.

If you consider that scores of imbeciles pay for virtual pitchforks on Zynga, they might as well pay for post promotion. But smart people will not submit to the suits and Goldman, get annoyed again, and leave.
