Morons confuse article about facebook with... actual facebook

The comments on this readwriteweb article are one of the funniest things I've seen on the internet.

http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives...true_login.php

cliff notes: dumb people type "facebook login" into google to get to their facebook page. in search results they get an article on the blog readwriteweb titled "facebook wants to be your one true login" and click on that. somehow.... they think the blog post is some new, redesigned version of facebook (???) and proceed to leave hilariously angry comments about not being able to login.....

Re: Morons confuse article about facebook with... actual facebook

wow.

If any site can aggregate the complete idiocy of the vast majority of Internet users in the last 10 years, this page is it.

The true gold is that people used their facebook connect to leave comments.

This thread of responses is the single most awesome, tragicomic example of internet stupid I've ever been lucky to witness. It's like having Carrot Top pull my spleen out through my nostril.

Screw the blog post's actual topic. The post itself is a brilliant innovation. Genius! Think about this! Everyone who can't figure out that this is a blog post about Facebook, not Facebook itself, is actually prevented from finding Facebook and logging in! Which means-- think about this, world! -- we don't have to read their status updates anymore!

I was feeling bad about my computer abilities when I couldn't figure out how to get AAC's in my WMP11 library. Now I don't feel all that bad anymore.

After the first two pages, I bet there are more fakes than real ones.

But when it comes to the first hundred or so comments, I have no doubts that many of them are real.

The thing is, even if people do Google "Facebook Login/Login Facebook" the main result is the actual Facebook website, so if they had been doing that before the article was written there would be no difference in the position of it.

This article/blog is now like 2nd or 3rd on the list because of all the hits it has been getting. So, for the first hundred comments it would have been even lower on the list of results that it wouldn't be able to confuse all those people.
