Knifing Game Removed From Facebook [technology.timesonline.co.uk]
A controversial computer game which let members of the social networking site Facebook "virtually knife" one another has been removed from the site.

Shank could be added by any Facebook member and appeared in the user's profile as a small knife with a black blade. Once installed as part of the Superpoke! application - which is typically used to send virtual greetings such as hugs and kisses - it allowed users to "shank" their friends.

In a statement this morning, Facebook said that the shanking feature had been removed from the site. The program had been made available by Slide, a third-party software developer which had now removed the feature from Superpoke!, Facebook said.
