It is very advisable to examine and dissect the men of science for once, since they for their part are quite accustomed to laying bold hands on everything in the world, even the most venerable things, and taking them to pieces.

Imagine having the ability to "like" specific posts/threads and share them on one's wall. Everything should be integrated through Facebook/Twitter; it's just the way we roll in 2010

The worst thing about the internet today is the homogenization of it. What Boris described is quite horrible. You shouldn't have just one main profile (your Facebook account) that is basically linked to and controls everything you do on the internet. It's just not right.

The forum is the one non-facebooked place left on the internet...please lets keep it that way. I am open about myself on both places but I like to keep it just a little bit seperate from the rest of my life.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Sure, imagine being able to "retweet" breaking news from a BushOK thread. Or imagine seeing something like "Zack Nelson likes opebo on uselectionatlas.org" appear in an FB newsfeed.

Facebook Connect

Facebook Connect allow users to “connect” their Facebook identity, friends and, privacy to any website. Facebook Connect has four primary features:

Trusted Authentication – Anywhere during the user’s experience that the developer would like to add social context, the user will be able to authenticate and connect their account in a trusted environment. The user will have total control of the permissions granted. This is a proprietary authentication mechanism, but is more streamlined than the existing method and will not require a redirect back to Facebook.

Real Identity – Users can bring their real identity information with them wherever they go on the open Web, including: basic profile information, profile picture, name, friends, photos, events, groups, and more.

Friends Access – Users will be able to take their friends with them wherever they go on the open Web. Developers will be able to add rich social context to their websites, and will be able to show which of their Facebook friends already have accounts on their sites.

Dynamic Privacy – As a user moves around the open Web, their privacy settings will follow, ensuring that users’ information and privacy rules are always up-to-date.

Facebook Connect is Facebook’s first attempt to allow access to Facebook user data outside of Facebook itself. The company is describing it as giving third party applications access to much of the same data as Facebook applications have toda

Uh...I don't know if anyone told you how the internet works, but linking a website to another doesn't completely shut it down and replace it.  No one said to end the forum and put it in a Facebook group, that was a completely pointless comparison.

It would make it easier for new members to register and we don't need that at all.

I'd rather not have you guys be on my Facebook. I'll never let forum stuff mix with Facebook.
