Apparently, shoe-spamming has become a "legendary scourge" on Facebook!

Chad is really putting himself out there lately- you can currently see him naked in "Murder in First" at 59e59!

I've never heard of this shoe-spamming, nor have I known anyone this has happened to. Is this a big problem?

Chad is making lots of videos lately and really hamming it up. He does make me laugh though. He's very funny. I love when he talks about Sondheim and Bernadette Peters being "shoed".

The shoe spamming is awful. I hate it!!!!!!

Huge problem. I get about 10 of them a day.

It's obnoxious as hell and Facebook should be able to control it, somehow.

They sem to come from pages of people with huge followings. The more famous you are, the more likely they will use your name in the spam.

Besides, the shoes are freaking ugly.

I have received some twice in the last month. A couple of friends had their Facebook accounts hacked.

Some people with huge followings actually had to start over from scratch due to the hacking. Its awful.

At the same time I've been spammed with the shoe thing, my facebook acct has been frozen due to "suspicious activity". I get an email from them saying my account was accessed from the Philippines and if that wasn't me that did that I need to change my password immediately. It's happened three times in the past two months and it's annoying as hell.

Facebook is becoming more trouble than its worth. Are they trying to alienate all its members. What annoys me is everytime someone comments on an old post, it re-enters my feed!! ARRRGHHH!!!

I was not a fan of his performance in MEMPHIS or the show for that matter, but I do think he is a very talented man.....and really really cute. I am embarrassed to say that I may go see MURDER just for the nudity. shame on me

So was this supposed to be a joke or entertaining or what? I saw this on Gawker and immediately said "Finally, Chad found something worse than Memphis. Hockadoo!"
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

And with that, Mr. Catalano has earned a Dlisted 'I'd hit that.'

And I don't even know what he looks like!

I get about 3-4 of them a day. They get access to the accounts of performers or writers or people with at least 2,500- 10,000 friends or fans and they tag large groups of those friends or fans. The shoe pictures then appear on their pages, so their friends can inadvertently click on them, thus spreading the virus.

Once you click on it, it raids your address book. No one knows if that's all it does or if it installs a trojan virus in your computer.

I keep reporting them to Facebook, clicking on "violent" or "hate speech" and then delete them.

"Shoes" and "violent" put me in mind of Dawn Davenport on Christmas morning.

I think that's what I had in mind, subliminally.

I could also have chose "sexual or suggestive" but I didn't want to give the shoes that much credit.
