Facebook: Viral App Alert ("Reported for Violating Terms of Service")

Oh, great. Just when you thought this Facebook bogus application thing was being nipped in the bud, another one pops up. It's like playing whack-a-mole.

"[Friend name] has just reported you to Facebook for violating our Terms of Service. - This is your official warning! - [Click here to find out why you were reported!] - Request Facebook look at what has happened and rule immediatley."

My advice to everyone is NOT to click, and if they have, to "immediatley" remove this rotten "app." That's Settings > Application Settings, and check under "Recently Used" 'cause this is another new one. Hit X and delete this piece of junk.

Spam and bots have already driven people off of MSN Windows Live Messenger, which was the sine qua non of online services for my place and generation. Facebook could be next if they don't do something soon.
