Facebook = Blackhole?

Is Facebook A Black Hole For Personal Info? Apparently if you delete your profile, your profile not only still exists but is accessible to outside users. A dude tried to delete his Facebook profile, found out the information was still available on Facebook servers and started an email campaign to have Facebook remove his information. Facebook emailed him back saying that they deleted his account. Well almost... a reporter later found his empty profile and was still able to contact him through the network.

This issue has shown up a lot in the past month or so. Im starting to think that facebook either doesnt have the proper means to remove user information or that they simply dont want to. Almost the same way that xbox live agents dont have any means to remove cc information from the system.
