Well, this was annoying.
Blaming it on "a server configuration change" means inadequate testing. Also, 'sorry for any (?) inconvenience isn't very really adequate. How about "here's a free coupon for a coffee or tea"? How about "we'll not monetize your data for a day"?
Problem is, we've become so used to all its features and connections, The Facebook is now a drug for most of us, and Zuckerberg is the pusher. Of course, as addicts, we are willing to rationalize it when our dealer lies to us, uses us, cheats on us, or is late with a fix.
What options do we have, other than trying to quit cold turkey? What's our Methadone?
