Lock That Internet Down

One of my recent pet peeves is about the eagerness some have to try to get various social networking sites (facebook/twitter/etc) to shut down accounts they don't like. Issues here aren't all simple, but I err on the side of "let assholes be assholes" especially in social spaces where other users are empowered to ignore those assholes. I'm not saying such sites should never bring down the hammer, and each space has its own particular issues to deal with, but I generally don't get the desire to complain to the facebook cops about the asshole on facebook. Because, you know, you're the asshole!
