My wife was interested in a promotion of some sort recently. The promotion requires either facebook or one other social network login to register for.
(What? I have to share my social login stuff with them to join their promo? NO THANKS!)
But I did click the Facebook link.
Did I type in my address? I don't think so. That means the promo must have shared the address I typed in with facebook, without my permission.
So I got a "Just click here to complete your registration." mail.
I did not click.
This is not an "I don't think so." When me wife understood that the promo required facebook or something equally noxious, she said she'd do without the promo.
So, now I suddenly get hundreds of "so-and-so accepted your friend request" and such. I checked the headers and the raw source. These are not spoofs, these are from the facebook servers.
Not sure what to do about it. Even complaining to Facebook requires giving them more information than I gave LinkedIn when I signed up there.
Facebook is poison.
