A link bunch is just that – a bunch of links. Often you find several links on the web that you want to share on services such as instant messengers (Google TalkWindows Live MessengerYahoo! Messenger, etc.) or microblogging platforms such as Twitter(which has a 140-character limit) and Pownce (which only has one link field). With LinkBunch, you take all those links and put them into one “bunch”, which is just one single link–which looks like a TinyURL or SnipURL link–and give that around instead. Saves space, looks cleaner and saves a few bytes of bandwidth! 🙂

MySpace ‘Friend Request’ Could Violate Protection OrderMark FassNew York Law JournalFebruary 14, 2008

In a case of apparent first impression, a Staten Island, N.Y., judge has ruled that a MySpace “friend request” can constitute a violation of a temporary order of protection.

“While it is true that the person who received the ‘friend request’ could simply deny the request to become ‘friends,’ that request was still a contact, and ‘no contact’ was allowed by the order of protection,” Criminal Court Judge Matthew A.

Are you interested?'”
