BBC NEWS | England | Manchester | Facebook prisoner faces inquiry
"The Ministry of Justice has contacted Facebook in order to seek their help in assisting the Prison Service in preventing prisoners from making inappropriate postings on their website."
Oh my fucking god, the ministry of Justice has literally no idea how technology works does it. Prisoners are not allowed mobile phones. The problem is that they are smuggling them in up their arse or something apparently, and that is an issue that needs to be looked at and fixed. It has FUCK ALL TO DO WITH FACEBOOK! Can you imagine this conversation:

MoJ: "Can you help us out with stopping prisoners getting on facebook?"
Facebook: "Have you tried stopping them shoving phones up their arses"
MoJ: "No not yet, we'll look into that thanks"
Facebook: "No problem".

What do they expect facebook to do, modify their entire website so it picks up the GPS position of a user accessing it and works out if they're in a prison and then blocks access? Yeah that makes sense! Even though PRISONERS AREN'T ALLOWED MOBILE PHONES OR ANY FORM OF COMMUNICATION!

I think I've made my point.
