This is really quite bazar. Boing Boing reported.
Confirm your identity with “MySpace salute”
MySpace says that if someone is pretending to be you on their site, you can confirm your identity by sending in a picture of yourself giving a “MySpace salute” (“holding a handwritten sign with the word ‘MySpace.com’ and your Friend ID”). As Waxy notes, “it’s a good thing there’s no way to fake photographs on a computer.” Pictured here: an Iraqi child confirming his identity as Rupert Murdoch. Link (via Waxy)
That seems so easy. Send in a picture with your name on it. It really begs the question what is Identity verification anyways.
