The launch of a BBC "World Olympic Dreams" site over the weekend went slighty awry when outraged netizens spotted a rather unflattering description of Facebook users in the "half-baked" effort:

BBC Olympic website inviting readers to "become a saddo on Facebook"

Spot on, although the site has sadly now been purged of all such "unfortunate" holding text and pretty much everything else, as you can see here.
