>>>> I’m writing to report a case of libel on facebook.  Andy Thompson,

>>>> a U of C undergraduate, titled his photo album “[Ex-girlfriend] cheated

>>>> on me, and you’re next!” and it’s linked to a discussion by his

>>>> friends (who don’t know me, and whom I don’t know) of my morals and

>>>> worth.  Here is the link:

>>>> http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/album.php?aid=2086041&id=2903551

>>>>

>>>> I don’t know if you can access the page, but a friend advised me to report this to you.  I asked Andy to change the title of the album, and he did not.  And his friend’s musings on what a whore I am are now also posted.  I would really appreciate if this could be removed quietly and quickly from the internet.
