Stop the presses! Facebook caves in

From Wired magazine’s Epicenter blog comes word that the prayers of hundreds of thousands — possibly millions — of Facebook users have finally been answered: the site will be dropping the much-despised “is” from its status updates.

You see? And you said that Facebook doesn’t listen.
