I came across this gem:
Alessandro "Derek" Del Piero is threatening to sue Facebook over a fake page with his name on with links to a N@zi propaganda group. His representatives wish to make it clear Del Piero has never had a profile on Facebook, because he has proper friends and a life.
On a more serious note:
I can smell legislation in this area fairly soon.............
Fake profiles on social networking websites are becoming a bigger problem, with numerous incidents of abuse on sites such as Facebook and Twitter over recent months, and no signs of anything approaching a strategy to combat the problem.
