Stuff today gives a splendid idea of a technology taking the rap, when something goes awry, rather than the tossers using the technology.
In this case it’s Facebook that is copping the blame:
Facebook derails Timaru party
Well, someone thinks so, because the culpability of the technology is reiterated in the first paragraph –
Facebook has been blamed for another out-of-control party in Timaru.
This is like blaming the telephone for police being given a bum steer by somebody making a false 111 call or like blaming a tree for a fatal accident when a drunken driver runs slap-bang into it at high speed.
