That's interesting news (to nerds like me anyway)
There's also the same sorts of restrictions a few months on Live Spaces. I think it's really very revealing when the mainstream press picks up on such a new phenomenon so quickly and the nuances of how marketers are using them.

I think this kind of conflict will continue as more firms try to exploit social networks at the same time that the platforms themselves are looking to maximize revenue.

So how many people here will feeling the impact of this?

Myspace is Nuts, with a capital N. They are risking their whole business by betraying the community.
Someone is going to come up with freespace.com, ie: not restrictions (except maybe adult content, etc) and everyone is just going to move over en masse.
I'm sure someone already has. Whoever at myspace thinks they have a business which can't be immediately replaced if they endgender the ire of their community .. is whacked.
The fact is, widget makers are going to write widgets which allow advertising .. why not, everyone else will accept them.
They'll have a business and they'll spend a portion of those profits to anonymously stir up trouble with myspace and any other clueless webpage hosting system that thinks they can control their community just because they give away a few free megabytes on a disk somewhere.

A blow to anyone trying to be the next MyBlogLog but for myspace.
Wonder what will happen to all of those myspace quiz type sites and how the mob that is the myspace user base will react when they cant add any widget they want.

This question isn't related to widgets but to something else I just noticed on my MySpace profile page today. I thought I could embed links before, but today noticed that the link will start with "www.myspace.com/followed by URL," therefore directing it to a dead page since that's not the correct URL. Is this a new thing?
Any insights anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
