I have to agree with the other naysayers. Making this a lesbian + mainstream media' story is a stretch. There is no doubt these women were heroes. There is also no doubt there were dozens of other heroes who did similar things in those terrifying hours. We didn't see much, if any, coverage about them, either. "Did they run and hide? No, they're lesbians, so they jumped in their boat and sped toward the slaughter." Seriously? is that some sort of Good Samaritan oath that is taken? If so, you'd think this thing would come up a whole lot more.
Craig, Respectfully I think you are off the mark here. You are wrongly downplaying the facility with which one can create fake Facebook accounts (something trivially accomplished with botnets) and the willingness of the bad guys to do so (see the Facebook judgement against Canadian Adam Guerbuez for proof that this has been happening for a long time, and last week's exposé of Koobface, the Facebook malware published, among other places, in the Globe & Mail : http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/time-to-lead/internet/anatomy-of-a-cyber-crime/article1792055/ ) While I agree that what you describe may indeed be the implementation of Facebook mail (we'll see later today), and I personally think Facebook mail will have a ton of instant uptake, and I happen to know Facebook hired some of the best and brightest minds in the email business to work this project, I don't know anyone who would disagree with the assertion that the adversary has always kept up and surpassed our abilities to create a spam-free environment. They are as best and bright as we are. Time will tell, of course.
