Myspace conspiracy theory?

Over at Valleywag (which is kind of like an internet tabloid for Silicon Valley gossip) there's an interesting story about the origins of MySpace.

Trent Lapinski's article
reads like a conspiracy theory of sorts, with tales of marketeers and spammers who may not have the best intentions in mind. In the condensed version he claims that News Corp.'s lawyers threatened to sue the publisher he originally wrote the article for, despite the fact that all facts are checked and accurate.

Because of a this, it makes for an interesting read.
