    Default OT: Facebook follies

    Some moron I don't know from Adam opened up a FB account but got its *own*
    email address wrong about a week ago - so the 'confirm your new account
    details' email ended up in one of my mailboxes....

    Of course I, being the true b*tch that I am, took it upon myself to log in
    as 'it', changed its password, its religion and a few other ahem, personal
    details - and then made its photo/profile available for the whole world to
    see. Heh. I wake up this morning and what do I find? No less than 7 FB
    'password reset confirmation' emails in said mailbox. <snork>

    Never thought I'd say this but Facebook *can* be amusing.

    Stand tall and proud. You probably just scared some little old granny
    or gramps off the internet for good. They've heard about all that
    hacking and phishing that goes on and didn't really want a FB account,
    but were talked into it anyway by well meaning relatives.

    Heh. Well according to its profile it's far from a granny - that's the
    most amusing part - most youngsters these days seem to know more about
    email domains, the Internet in general and/or computers than I do. Guess
    not in this case <eg>

    <snork>

    So says Mr "Popularity" Lucas himself. I see you're now using the nick
    "Aussie" Peter me ol' mate, me ol' pal - could it be to avoid kf's
    perhaps?

    Anyway, how one can compare this to the People of Wal-mart thing escapes
    me...

    We get lots of 'mislaid' emails (e.g. people making a typo in an address,
    or not taking it down properly when it is read out to them over the
    phone). No problem with that, we ignore them. But this one took the cake -
    it entered the wrong email address itself, which is staring it in the face
    every time it tries to do a password reset, and yet it still tried 7
    times. And a quick google shows it has used this exact same email address
    on quite a few other 'social networking' sites/forums so I think it
    actually deserved a little 'taking the piss'.

    I would be cautious doing that...Facebook has your IP address and they

    Taking advantage of someone's faults for your pleasure is the same, be it a
    facebook page or posting their photo for fun and profit.

    Weeeeellll, if anybody believes that, then there'd be a bunch more
    Facebook-ers in jail by now. Luckily, they only seem to catch the StuPid
    ones ;-)

    Anyway, on the other tentacle, I've had an up-close-and-personal
    experience of the latest and greatest Bells and Whistles the alleged 9th
    World Wonder has to offer - and I still can't see why 400-odd million
    people rave about it. <shrug>

    I have this one FB friend whom I wish that I'd never accepted. He's a
    recovering drunk, and he's always posting all this sickeningly
    positive stuff.
    Examples:
    23 hours ago: "[his name] is touched by the Great Spirit"
    A few days ago: "my nature is love and strength. i overcome all fear
    with the power of peace."
    The day before that: "I am safe because love is the only reality."

    I guess it's better than waking up in an alley, covered in your own
    piss, but it's still sickening.

    He's a nice guy, and we have mutual friends. If I'd just never
    responded I could more easily use the excuse of wanting to limit my
    number of FB friends, which is also true.
