Facebook can only give away the information you put on Facebook. I don't put much info on Facebook, so  I'm not bothered. Anyhow, back to my question, why can't it support HTML/BB code?
It could, but it doesn't.

Why? because retards who think they can do it would ruin comments sections and shiz?
Always check your tackle- Caerphilly school of Health. If I see an innuendo in my post, I'll be sure to whip it out.

The reasons are probably only known to the faceless corporation behind Facebook.
However, the reasons for why something has not been done are usually laziness/not having gotten the idea, rather than the betterment of human race. I wouldn't think it's to stop retards from being retards.

Information you consciously put into Facebook != information you put into Facebook. They can infer a lot from your browsing habits that you might even not know about yourself.

Do you enjoy being stalked?

I would consider there to be an enormous difference between that and actual stalking.

What real harm is Facebook going to do with that information, assuming they are 'stalking us'?
Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

Advertisers!  You clearly have no indication of the many reasons advertisers want to stalk and kill you!

Oh, I'm not necessarily asking about your personal beliefs. I'm just wondering why a large group of people considers it bad.

Do you enjoy being stalked?
I don't need to enjoy it in order not to give a damn about it/not mind it, which is the case. I have nothing to hide.

No they simply want my money and I want their products. (ok I do get the joke). However,  I am guessing that the logic here is if I post a whole bunch of interests on my FB page about say, trout fishing, I will eventually get some advertising come my way about trout fishing? I still fail to see how this is a bad thing?

Identity thieves are getting more clever all the time.

Facebook is not the only way they can get that information. That said, some people do post every little happening of their entire life story on there. 

I do agree with Facebook's level of lameness, and I find it interesting that the universities that this phenomenon started in, is now where people are leaving in droves because of protecting their piracy.
