    Just last night I saw an ad on craigslist where the employer wanted me to click on a emloyment site that used Facebook as a login and requirement. I figured it was a scam. But it did offer a new password that you could choose different from Facebook but you had to friend the site first ... and the employer can check to see if you have a pic drinking or do a grammar and spelling check on your casual entries etc.

    Such trolling opportunities. Fake facebook account, with goatse et al shared to "friends only".

    You'd be my first pick. Can't stand fadbook, it's like AOL for retards. AOL is like the web for retards. The web is like the Internet for retards. As for the Internet...Al Gore is a retard. It all makes sense now.

    Yeah, like it would hurt them so much. A better alternative:

    HR Person: Please provide your login credentials for Facebook.

    ME: How's your kid?

    HR Person: What?

    ME: Such a nice kid. Aren't you worried about him straying from the school grounds? It's a terrible world out there, you know.

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
