Yahoo! Is A Facebook API Molester

Heh...this ZDNet editor was molested by Yahoo.

Instead of the usual "Authorize" on the upper right you get for most Facebook-connected apps, you get a "Okay, Read Article" prompt. That’s pretty scummy social engineering, because if the verbiage was "Authorize Yahoo" I might not have done it.
