I wonder if its worse that this did happen to you, or worse that DIDN'T.

I don't and I really don't get why you do.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Well it's rather less of a story than implied as you could only possibly get details of people you already had some details of. Those people who go round 'friending' everyone in sight though have left themselves exposed biut then again they almost certainly have anyway on their own pages.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
