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.

Hate to say it, but anybody naive enough about FB to be surprised by this deserves what they get. Look at the folks posting here who don't get it. Caveat emptor.

Yes, I, who am a Facebook user, has certainly been shown the error of my ways. How dare they give me a free email address? How dare they give people who visit my profile on Facebook a way to contact me on Facebook? Hiding my main email address is a slightly icky move, but this is hardly the day of reckoning for Facebook users. Don't be so dramatic.
