There's gotta be *some* disgruntled FB employee out there who would be willing to "accidentally" `$ rm -rdf` the root directories of a few servers to slow down the rise of fascism

Btw, if this is you and you pull it off, you can lay low at my house for a while if you need to

They'll never find you

I have snacks

Or idk maybe—

—if there *were* some lone disgruntled FB employee out there, that is—

—write a little programme that injects a bunch of plausible but randomly-generated data points into all the tables in the production database and also randomly deletes or slightly changes other ones

Make their data useless and noisy and their service unreliable

Slow down their servers; increase their operating costs

Just in case one of you has write access to the FB servers

Would it be fun to do?

Yes

But would it be the *right* thing to do?

Also, yes
