Maybe you should have said "People who watch the new seasons of South Park have 0 friends"...

Found yesterday, fixed yesterday!

South Park was a great show, until it reached the 12th season, it just went downhill from there (I couldn't stand to watch the entire 13th season, I stopped watching in the middle of an episode).

Yeah, but FB is still more secure than most sites with chat. AIM for example will let you find out the ip address of the person you are chatting with. And not the hidden AIM version of the ip, like facebook, but the actual ip address. Freaking hilarious when you tell someone what their ip is while you're chatting, and they freak out.

I find it interesting that they chose to disable the chat feature, rather than the preview feature itself while the bug was fixed. That tells me the problem was with chat and that's the code that was altered.
