Facebook announces next step in their "consistency" push

Following-up on their move to enforce greater "consistency" among
their user community by switching all Facebook users' email identities
to @facebook.com without their affirmative permission, Facebook
announced today that as of 2 AM this morning, all Facebook users in the
United States and Canada have had their first names changed to Pat.

A Facebook spokesperson, Pat Patterson, noted that similar changes will
be rolled out around the world, with regionally appropriate name
choices.  "We think this change today will make for a great user
experience for Pats everywhere," said Mr./Ms. Patterson.
