Use a strong FB password or “Laughing Man” will post drivel on your wall.

Someone (or hacker group) has discovered the joy of posting material on the Facebook accounts of people who apparently use weak passwords.

A search on Facebook for the string “This is a video that’s been appearing on hacked Facebook profiles,” shows a load of accounts carrying it. Some Facebook users also appear to be voluntairly posting the link to the YouTube video as well.

The video features a man’s torso with face overlaid with various still photos. The sound track is a droning lecture about the evils of authority. The eight-minute video concludes with a scroll of meandering quotes from Immanuel Kant and the 19th century French anti-statist writer Frederic Bastiat. There’s also an audio conclusion that’s a bit less than a call to action: “I can’t tell you what to do.”

A manifesto it ain’t.

Thanks Wendy.
