I note from RISKS that
PALO ALTO, CA -- Facebook today announced availability of a new feature, the
enemies list. "This is the single most requested feature from our customer
base, and we always respond to our customers," said company spokesman Ronald
Ziegler.
Many years ago, there was a wonderful April 1st ad from BMW, which promoted their latest feature: the automatic windscreen wiper that turned on when it started raining. This is a feature now available on cars, including mine - I just leave the level at intermittent, and it changes speed from 'off' all the way up to 'frantic' depending on how much rain is arriving. (It's pretty good at it, though it will every now and again do a dry wipe, if a lot of dust has accumulated.)

Perhaps the enemies list will also be added to social media.

Car-related news from the BBC...

I'm pretty certain it's a Lirpa Loof but it's nicely done.

It's very, very, plausible, that's the problem. Yes, I assumed it was a timely article, but I'd be surprised if they weren't looking at the future, and a lot of the arguments in the article make a certain amount of sense.

Rollers always had a reputation for quietness, after all, and this would certainly help.

But the fact that it was posted only just after midnight is the smoking gun.

ETA: Rats: it's been around for a bit
