Scobleizer admits he is indeed running a script, going on:

"I am working with a company to move my social graph to other places and that isn’t allowable under Facebook’s terms of service."
This will fire the starting gun on all the debates that till now have seemed rather theoretical, could lead to a revolt amongst some Facebook users. There is even now a Facebook group to get his account re-instated. Ché Scoble, anyone?"
The post goes on that although Scoble, "Twittered that will be taking the normal customer service route rather than contacting Facebook’s PR people, the storm that is brewing will not take long to reach Facebookxs most senior people."
