Does anyone else get the sense that Mark Zuckerberg fills in Mad Libs to generate his apology letters? (Here, here, and here).

The most recent one doesn't actually apologize, but the game is still there. Here's samples from today, 2007, and 2006 respectively:
  • The biggest message we have heard recently is that people want easier control over their information. Simply put, many of you thought our controls were too complex. 
  • Beacon would give people an easy and controlled way to share more of that information with their friends. ...But we missed the right balance.
  • We did this to make sure you could share information with the people you care about. This is the same reason we have built extensive privacy settings — to give you even more control over who you share your information with.Somehow we missed this point with News Feed and Mini-Feed and we didn't build in the proper privacy controls right away.
So when exactly were they hearing something other than people wanting more control over privacy settings?

Remember when Facebook looked like that image above?
