#Block Zuck

# block-zuck - Tuesday 24 August, 2010

REPORTS THAT FACEBOOK founder Mark Zuckerberg is the only person who users cannot block surfaced yesterday, but have been passed off as accidental by the company.

Users attempting to block Zuckerberg (many encouraged by anti-Zuckerberg website found they could not. When they tried to they simply received the message “General Block failed error. Block failed”.

Facebook explained that when too many users block another, the system interprets this as a viral campaign and, er, blocks the unblocking attempts.

They say that they’re “taking a closer look the problem”, and hopefully everyone can block away to their heart’s content again soon.

Still that’s gotta hurt a little, Mark….
