OpenBook: idiot detection using Web 2.0
Posted by Martin Poulter on 25 June 2010
Not all status updates on Facebook are protected. Despite usually intended just for friends, many are publicly readable, and the OpenBook search engine indexes them. That’s how you can get a list of named individuals, with photographs, next to too-much-information statuses such as “i also pt whipped creme on my nipples and made my dog lick it” or “I love dogging”. What’s more disturbing is to search for racist insults or, my favourite, “not a racist but”, scroll down and see the depths of barely literate, bigoted fucktardiness.
