Geeks With Blogs
ICaramba Miguel Castro's blog about .NET and its effect on National Security, the Eco-system, and his daughter's sleeping patterns.

UHHHHHHHHHHGGGGG !!!!!

There, I got that out.

I just received my first Facebook Phishing attempt. This is unbelievable - can we please pass a friggin law that allows the death-penalty for these assholes?!?

I'm sorry folks - I've always watched my language on this blog, but I find no other way of describing these people.

I got this email today:

Facebook's offices are located at 156 University Ave., Palo Alto, CA 943

And of course, the fbstarter.com site is designed to look exactly like the Facebook login screen.

I know this is an old trick and it's still used to obtain banking passwords and such, but social sites ?!?!?

Am I the only one who would get actual pleasure and satisfaction by seeing these people hanged by their testicles (we can be equally creative if they were women), and picked at by 100 people each armed with nothing more than a pair of pliers?!?

Anyway - just be on the lookout for these emails, folks.
