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.

The problem is not a FB mail service itself, but the fact that they are actually forcing their users to use whatever FB likes them to use.
Now, I'm not a FB user [I find their policies way too restrictive], but I can actually imagine a point of view where this is not a problem. One could always say: "well, you got what you agreed with. Terms of use accepted? don't whine now".
