Internet & Networking "If you are on Facebook but have never taken a particular shine to Facebook's e-mail capability, Facebook is intent on changing your mind. As of Friday, the company seems to have quietly given or replaced the display e-mail addresses of all of its users with an @facebook.com address, routing any e-mail communiques you would have received back to its own Messages inboxes." Scummy doesn't even begin to describe this.

Err... if you want to hide your email-adress you can do that in the profile settings. There is no reason for facebook to override its users' settings and change their email adresses. Nor can I see how there could be any demand from users for facebook to do so.

The reson for this change is probably to have mails being realyed trough facebook's server so that they can monitor their content. That's why some people call it a scam.
