Blocking facebook for addicts and workplace

I hate facebook. it's a complete waste of time. so, i made a fake facebook page on a server which looks like FB is telling the user to go get a life.

  • if you want to use it on your domain, create a DNS entry to point facebook.com and www.facebook.com to 63.131.119.172.
  • for home computers, edit the hosts file (%systemroot%system32driversetchosts) and add these two lines at the bottom:

    63.131.119.172 facebook.com
    63.131.119.172 www.facebook.com

the user will get this:

This way, when users in my domain, or household get blocked, they will think facebook is blocking them, not me. and if they ask me, my answer is simply: “i dunno, shouldnt you be working.”
i'm happy with it. are you?
