I flunked your facebook quizI know. You get no end of pleasure by sending “fun” quizzes to all your Facebook peeps. Then you wonder why people have quietly unfriended you.

Listen, my friend (or former friend, as the case may be), I have news for you. Though you may find such quizzes endlessly amusing, you could be annoying the piss out of your Facebook peeps. Or, worse, coercing them to open their kimonos and show their dangly bits to rapacious data mining companies and identity theft scammers. Yes, it’s true.

And you wouldn’t want that, because one day you may find yourself short of cash overseas and will need to your Facebook friends to wire you $4000 (wink, wink).
