God Dammit, Facebook.

Apparently, if some jackass has already added you to their spam list without your permission, they can now get Facebook to spam you on their behalf as well.

To nobody's great surprise, the "This is Spam" link doesn't work: it just redirects to the Facebook front page.

    Nothing if not accurate.

    I've taken to reporting all the 'sponsored' or 'promoted' or whatever the fuck posts as spam. Works on the iPhone app at least.

  3. Hi Jamie,

    You may be interested in giving my browser extension a try. It specifically removes crap like that from your news feed. There's a LikeBuster for Chrome and a LikeBuster for Firefox.

    If you do end up using it, it'd be awesome to hear your feedback on it.

      This is email, not in the news feed. I already have killfiles for my news feed because I read it as RSS.

    I'm not a FB user, but my impression is their attitude about this sort of thing is "Suck it!"
