Can Twitter and Facebook Deal With Their Dead?

brouski Facebook's memorializing procedures... (284 comments)

leave a lot to be desired.

On a message board I frequent, there's a prank going around where a "friend" of a Facebook user will report the death of the user to Facebook, along with a faked obituary (apparently there are websites where one can easily create same), and based solely on this Facebook will lock down the account into "memorial" status.

It's currently easier for a stranger to convince Facebook that you're dead than it is for you to convince them that you're still alive.

School Spying Scandal Gets Even More Bizarre

brouski Re:To be fair (699 comments)

The only real "modern" Christianity movement with any longevity and a smattering of cohesion is the Evangelicals. Saying that some do or do no believe anything is somewhat pointless, since they can make up just about anything they want and it's "okay". Nonetheless, the overwhelming majority are certain that once you're Saved, you're good.

I frequent a message board or two with active religion sections that I browse from time to time. That generalization is far far FAR from the truth. The "works vs. grace" debate flares up often, and it gets quite heated.

Threaten to sue the law changes to say its impossible to sue that company!
