Anyone want to take bets on Facebook doing the right thing and invalidating all of the passwords on the site and making everybody select new ones? So many accounts would be lost forever.

Facebook acknowledged a bug in its password management systems

This is a feature, not a bug.

(disclaimer: I’ve always wanted to be the first to say that in a circumstance like this!)

I’m trying to figure out how much money I should put on this being the result of their invasive JavaScript tracking libraries that essentially act as keyloggers, transmitting everything you type to the server even if you never go through with clicking the “submit” button.

If he did, it’s subtle and I’ll happily take it.

It’s not like he needs to do anything with most of these pictures to make them look any worse. I can’t look at normal photos of Zuckerberg or Trump without thinking about what awful, stupid people they are.

Zuck: People just submitted it.
Zuck: I don’t know why.
