They know where you are! (Because you told them…)

FaceBook already knows what you do, who your partner is, who your friends are, and what you think, just because they asked you.  It has such byzantine privacy settings, and makes actually leaving and wiping your data such an unnecessarily complicated process, that web forums are full of people trying to get away from FaceBook and finding it extremely difficult.  And now FaceBook wants you to tell it where you are with the arrival of FaceBook Places.  Why on Earth would you want to tell them?
