Who cares about their users' email?

At least not Facebook. Their brilliant new lock-in feature @facebook.com has destroyed many address books and lost tons of email (or maybe they just placed the email in the “Other” folder, but still synced address books to mostly unusable @facebook.com addresses).

I must admit I'm surprised to see this huge SNAFU. Usually Facebook is sinister and getting worse in terms of user abuse, but savvy in terms of tech and getting better.
