As everyone knows, the foursquare page has become the symbol of this social media statuary controversy and emotions are running high. The board of trustees for foursquare is aware of both sides of the debate and are hesitant to offend either. One source with knowledge of the gchats between foursquare founders has said "Seriously?

Another source said "Who in their right mind would waste time checking in to a statue?" and "Should we just close up shop, has this social experiment gone too far?"
