    I rarely do this but ..... ROFL.

    I mean, seriously, ROLFMAO.

    That is just so ROFL-worthy.

    I nearly ROFL's myself into a hernia.

    I haven't ROFLMAO'd like that in, oh, maybe ever.





    PS. Is is just me or did it take weeks to address when it was you and me (or rather, maybe you 'cos I don't use FB), but nano-seconds when it's Zuckerberg? Double standards, anybody?

    Oh, and by the way ..... ROFL.

    I suspect Saracen has been exposed to nitrous oxide... I can't comprehend that post from him otherwise.

    People know what to do now when they notice a vulnerability, expose Zuckerberg's account and it will be fixed immediately. Unfortunately I doubt many people will stop using Facebook as I have

    I really dislike using it myself but there is nothing personal about me on there, I use it almost purely for communication with people who are otherwise difficult to contact. If said people suddenly preferred to use email (and checked more than once a year) I'd happily delete my account.

    Most people would be much much better off with email and usenet for their social needs. All this web2.0 crap people are having foisted upon them is more stupidification at best, down right dangerous at worst.

    Re: News - Zuckerberg's home photos, thanks to Facebook privacy flaw

    I just don't understand how people having hours a day for Facebook, all I can manage is the odd check to see if I'm in any new photo albums. I think 75% of my usage is exactly that - looking at albums of nights out I been on. The rest is a few messages to people I've not seen for a while, or reading the news postings of the game devs I follow (as a Total War fan I have 'liked' it, they actually provide some useful product and patch news).

    Just assume everything you put on there is publicly visible; chances are it will be at some point...
