Facebook is apparently really against against the idea of virtual euthanasia. Last week, we wrote about how it was blocking Seppukoo, a silly app that would let you kill your Facebook account. This week after people started talking about a similar service called the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine (which is similar, if a bit more inclusive -- it will delete all your web 2.0 profiles -- and entertaining -- you get to watch the deletions in realtime), Facebook again rushed forward to block access. Apparently Facebook has no sense of humor at all when it comes to you actually leaving its service.
