Facebook and DragonFly, but not on purpose

Looking for DragonFly BSD in Google will occasionally turn up wierd things: the release ISOs scattered amongst other not-so-free software, or poorly cut-and-pasted documentation in a splog.  This is the oddest recently: a direct copy of the Wikipedia page on DragonFly, placed on Facebook, with a big tag at the top saying “Sign up for Facebook to connect with DragonFly BSD”.

Except there’s no DragonFly on Facebook.  I assume it’s a group formed by some Facebook user.  The whole “sign up to connect” item rankles me a bit; signing up for Facebook isn’t going to get you more DragonFly; it’s just going to waste your time.

  1. Blame this on Facebook’s nefarious new practice of mining your interests and automatically creating pages out of them.
