Imagine Myspace had they not allowed users to hack templates... You'd have a Bebo or a Classmates on your hands.
Myspace could have become Facebook if it wasn't for the nauseating templates. In contrast, Facebook was an visual oasis and became instantly more credible.
I still won't create public accounts with my real name anywhere though. I'm not going to volunteer tons of personal information on the web, what I am up to, who are my friends, where I am, etc... that's just being careless, too many criminals and unethical corporations out there.
