Fan of Friendster? A similar service with more features that support online communities which works much more quickly is Orkut. A similar website targeting a number of elite universities is thefacebook.com, not to mention the "facebook" feature of dogears.net.
Also, a student column in the student newspaper at UMass Amherst alleging a U.S. solder who died in Afghanistan shouldn't be considered a "Hero" has caused the president to issue a formal rebuttal:
" ... UMass president Jack Wilson issued a statement saying Rene Gonzalez' comments in The Daily Collegian "are a disgusting, arrogant and intellectually immature attack on a human being who died in service to his country. ... "
Unfortunately for free speech, the website of the Collegian is "unavailable" do to high traffic.
