Facebook hates privacy. There is no legal reason for them to demand the
passports and the birth certificates of users to verify their real names.

None whatsoever.

Facebook are scum, and so are all of the other organisations that demand
we give up our privacy so we can use their sites.

No more.. I'm making a stand and deleting my account. 

It will mean I lose contact with a great many people whose numbers or 
email addresses I don't know, but such is life. Communication isn't just
Facebook. It needs to be something more again.

This is my stand. Most likely, it will go completely unnoticed.
