Two universities encouraging Facebook spam.

From my VCU e-mail:

1. Facebook Face-off: VCU vs. GMU
Virginia Commonwealth University and George Mason University – Virginia’s largest universities and CAA rivals – are going head-to-head to see who can bring in the most Facebook fans. The competition tipped off at noon on Jan. 19 and runs until noon on Feb. 9. The school with the most new fans when the buzzer sounds will be announced at half-time during the VCU and GMU men’s basketball face-off that night. Show your spirit and help VCU win the Facebook challenge. Go to

It’s bad enough the crap I get on Facebook everyday, but here are two dumbass universities encouraging their students to send out as many fan requests as possible.

Maybe the university should send out a link to the video that WTTG (Fox 5 in Washington, D.C.) had during their 10:00 p.m. news about how you shouldn’t act like an obnoxious brat on Facebook.
