For the past week or so, getting into Facebook has been an incredible pain in the neck, thanks to what I just learned is known as the "Koobface" virus. In articles I've read online about the virus, it talks about messages one should not open. Well, I can't recall having received such messages, much less clicked on links in those messages. But it appears that the problem may even affect people who haven't been lured into the scheme, since the ability to reset one's password isn't currently working at Facebook.
Facebook had better fix this problem pronto, because even though I've benefited from participation in Facebook to some extent, there was a time when I had never heard of Facebook, and I got along just fine without it. If necessary, I can do so again.
