The Mindless Owners Of Social Networks

I am a member of countless social networks, I participate on all of them.
Each has it's own unique potential. Some offer cross network slideshows or movie hosting.
Some offer cross network music players. Some offer lots of open network html potential which allows for excellent creative control and ability. Each has it's own unique benefits.
But MySpace and Facebook automatically reject ANY url or embed link to Yuwie. Yuwie rejects links to MySpace. So far only the Blog sites seem to have unfettered access to any social network as a host for raw material. The net was founded on the principle of unfettered access to information.
I create across a wide spectrum of web hosts. I want to share my efforts and work with as many people as I can. I make very little on the internet. I create and promote in the hopes that I might touch a mind, open a door. Help create a better world for some. But the mindless and selfish attitude that social network owners have makes that darn near impossible. They are hurting themselves and their users when they use statements for rejection like-our users have found this content objectionable. Like people actually voted to stop content-even though they do not know what it is. Automatic url rejection. If people are to enjoy the web they need unrestrained access to what makes it special. When those of us who are internet savy cannot even post a link because it is a "competitor" than what is the point?. It always seems to be protect my market share at any cost, even though I as a user participate on them all. Maybe I should just stop using all of your "systems". Since you do not give me the courtesy of trying to spread something GOOD.

I am all Giggly

Aw gee-California will have to make cuts:
I lived there for over 30 years. It was nice in the late 70's. Some undeveloped land. Reasonable prices and rents. When I left, a dumpy 1 bedroom apartment in Lancaster went for $600 a month.
Lancaster is some 90 miles from downtown L.A. in the middle of a desert. Rents in the San Fernando valley, Hollywood etc where so astronomical that whole families where living in 1 and 2 bedroom places. Pay scales for the lower end folk were near or at minimum wage but rents so high workers had trouble finding places to live. Water was scarce already-growing even more so now.
Finding parking is a joke-fees at the local lots-$50 a day? Please. About the same as what some workers make. High State taxes that seem to cover everything except food. Astronomical government fees for everything. House and property values increasing by as much as $60,000 in one year?
Only an insane mind would wonder why they are broke.
I am happy; this economic crisis was long over due. Unmitigated greed has finally bit the beautiful people in the ass. I hope it lasts
